ADD A BIT OF LEMON TO YOUR LIFE

My mother-in-law gave me a great tip the other day.
When you use alot of lemons like I do.
 Tip #1 - Zest them all in one go and keep it in a
container in the freezer. 
Tip #2 Freeze the juice in ice cube trays. That way you always have lemon juice
and zest on hand. 


 Great lemon link to check out - http://ecosalon.com/20-unusual-uses-for-lemon-juice-438/

Healthy benefits of adding LEMON TO YOUR LIFE


                Lemon Water to Lose Weight and Have More Energy


No other food known to man has what lemon hasn't even lime and other citrus fruit. Lemons have atomic power, a very special form of vitamin C, and are the best way to lower high sugar. Lemons regenerate the liver, strengthen stomach acids and salivary enzymes, and help the pancreas, thyroid, and adrenal glands,as well as all other glands and organs of the body. Also the lemon water helps to strengthen the back because of the Vitamin C it contains.

Lemon water has to be made from fresh lemons. Realemon from a bottle or can or plastic lemon does not work. Even freshly made lemon water is good only twelve hours after it is made. The lemon has to be diluted in distilled water. It the lemon juice is taken straight, it was eat the dentine off your teeth if there are any cracks in the enamel.

The formula for making lemon water is add one ounce of lemon juice to eight ounces of distilled water. You can dilute it more if you prefer. One average lemon contains one ounce of juice. You can take eight ounces of the lemon and water mixture 1/2 hour to one hour before breakfast, hot or cold, buy only four ounces per hour maximum is the best thereafter. The average person should have one to six lemons per day in two quarts of distilled water. If your sugar is high, you should take one to three lemons per day in one quart of distilled water. If you sugar is very high, you should take two to six lemons per day in two quarts of distilled water. At first, it may taste very sour. This means your sugar is high. As you continue to take it, it will start to taste better as your sugar goes down.

It is the best thing for quenching your thirst. Soon you will notice you no longer desire soda pop and other sweets. In fact, soda pop even starts to taste too sweet. If you take lemon water for the rest of your life, you can add 10 to 30 years to it. If the lemon burns your stomach, it is a sign that you lack calcium. Take calcium gluconate, four to eight, for four to sixteen weeks, till the lemon no longer burns your stomach. Again, lemon water is the most fantastic thing you can do to improve your health, increase your energy, and prolong your life.

Lemon Juice Remedy 

A natural Cure for Acne

Your cure for acne could be sitting on your kitchen counter 

My method I use - cut up a lemon into 4 sections, take one of the sections and rub it around my face, (avoid eye area), take another one of the sections and squeeze it into a  1/2 cup of water to drink (first thing I drink in the morning). (refreshing and good for you), and store the remaining two sections for the next day. 
-smells great
-leaves skin feeling clean
-no artificial chemicals
-all natural (obviously)
-lightens any scarring
-makes your skin feel tight for the first 10 minutes
if you find your skin is drying out too much add a small drop or two of olive oil to the lemon juice and then apply to your face at night - avoid eye area.
JUST REMEMBER a lemon is acidic: a pH of 2 to 3. So be careful to not get any of the juice or rub it accidentally over your eye. If you do, rinse with cold water until you feel fine. 
*** Don' t put it on your face during the day if you will be out in the sun.
My overall skin tone has improved as well. 
Let me know if you try any of these remedies :)
