The Lemon.

by Tanya on August 24, 2010


I took several handfuls of pictures of lemons on our recent trip to Italy this past April. Lemon trees, lemons in bowls, lemons on vines. They were plentiful and beautiful. You see, I love lemons. I love a wedge squeezed in my sweet tea, I love the look of a bowl of lemons to brighten a room, I love the zest, the juice, the color, the smell….

So when I came across this article about 22 uses for lemon peels, I was immediately intrigued. Now, I already do several things on this list, but I have to share a few new things I found that I can’t wait to try out! Like making lemon extract powder which you can then use to make lemon sugar and lemon pepper or making a sugar scrub! Soften your elbows and lighten age spots too! Sounds good to me.

Mix 1/2 a cup of sugar with finely chopped lemon peel and enough olive oil to make a paste. Wet your body in the shower, turn off the water and massage sugar mix all over your skin, rinse, be soft!

Please share the LOVE:-)!
