Jun 13, 2013


Everyone  experience bump in life. Well, it is the fun part because every after bump you will come back stronger.. It is a phase to develop your personality! So no sweat :) Moving forward, today I am going to share with you on what you can do with lemons literally :P hahaha 

Did you know the Ancient Egyptians believed that eating lemons and drinking lemon juice was an effective protection against a variety of poisons, and that recent research has confirmed this belief? How interesting right?

p/s: Do you know that I used to be a microbiology students :P  
Thats how surprising life can be for anyone, you study different thing and end up doing other things haha 


Anyway, back to the Lemon topic, there are many health benefits of lemons that have been known for centuries. The two biggest are lemons’ strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers and their use as a weight loss aid because lemon juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser. Lemons contain many substances such as citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene which helps to promote immunity and fight infections.



Chills and Fevers
Chills and fevers may be due to a variety of causes, but the lemon is always a helpful remedy. Here is a method that can ease symptoms: add the juice of 1 lemon to a cup of hot water with honey and drink at once, then every 2 hours until the fever or chill reduce.

Stimulate Brain
Lemon oil also seems to be able to stimulate brain activity so whenever you feel tired for no reason or are finding it hard to focus or concentrate, add 4 drops of lemon oil to a water-filled aromatherapy burner. Alternatively, drink a glass of lemon water every few hours.

Insect Repellents
To repel insects, add 20 drops of lemon oil to 1 cup (250ml) of water and spray into the air. It smells great and repels insects at the same time. Another home remedy is to place a cotton ball soaked in lemon oil in your bedroom. If you are sitting outside in the evening, apply lemon scent to skin areas not covered in clothing.

Keep fruits and vegetables from turning brown
Apples, potatoes, avocados and other fruits and vegetable that tend to turn brown when sliced can be preserved with just a little bit of lemon juice. Add a teaspoon or so to the water when boiling potatoes, and sprinkle just a little bit on fruit salads. Yummy!

Whiten yellow fingernails
Give your nails a healthier, more youthful look with a lemon juice soak. Remove any nail polish, wash your hands and then soak your fingernails in full-strength lemon juice for a minute or two. Moisturize them afterward to prevent excessive dryness.

Remove Odors
To remove odors from garbage disposals, you can drop in leftover lemon peels (make sure the pieces are small). Rub lemon juice into cutting boards that have retained strong odors or stains, and clean with soap and water. For the fridge, pour some lemon juice on a sponge or cloth and place it in the fridge until the smell goes away.



Well, I can’t really share with you how to have a 247 happy life since I am struggling too! Haha
Well, at least I hope this tips will inspire you to use the lemons efficiently!
