Lemon is a popular scent in aroma therapy because its aromatic qualities calm you.
Lemons are thirst quenching. In the south, they used a slightly salted lemonade to quench thirst and replace salt lost through perspiration.
I found pages and pages on the lemon- its high in vitamin C, keeps your liver functioning properly, helps asthma, colds, flu, rheumatism, constipation, diarrhea, dissolves uric acid, removes bacteria, cleanses the system of impurities, contains calcium, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium, reduces hemorrhage, (including heavy menstrual flow), reduces heart palpitations, soothes heartburn, soothes sore throats when mixed with honey, reduces fever â€¦ and thatâ€™s just the high points.
Also contains a compound called flavones, which reduce your risk of breast cancer.
Squeezing fresh lemon into your water pitchers a lot more often. My daughter loves it. Must be fresh lemon. Bottled juice does not contain the same qualities.
One of the greatest treeats in the summer is fresh squeezed lemonade. There is just no comparison!
