Fruit Trees - Growing Lemons

Lemons grown by Yummy Gardens

Lemons are great for many things including cooking, lemonade & teas.
Here are some other great uses for lemons.

  • You can reduce skin blemishes by rubbing undiluted lemon juice directly on the blemish
  • To make a fantastic hand cleaner 1/2 fill a jar with raw sugar. Add olive oil to just cover the sugar. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon into the jar, grate the rind and add. Place the lid on the jar and leave for a few hours. To use rub a small amount on your hands and rinse with warm water.
  • Add a few tablespoons of coconut milk to the hand cleaner above and you can then use it as a beautiful body exfoliant.  It is a great scrub for the whole body and smells yummy.
  • Dissolve some baking soda in 2 cups of hot water, add lemon juice and pour it into a spray bottle. Spray this into the air as a natural air freshener.
  • Combine 2 tablespoons of borax, 1/4 cup of lemon juice and 2 cups of hot water and pour into a spray bottle. Use as an all-purpose house cleaner.
  • Mix together 1/4 cup of olive oil with a few drops of lemon juice for a natural shoe polish. Simply dip your rag, wipe on, then buff off.
