The Mighty Lemon
The lemon has a rich history all over the world! The lemon is believed to have originated from Northeast India, in Assam. Egyptians ate lemons to protect them from several forms of poison. The Americas were introduced to lemons in 1493 when Christopher Columbus brought lemon seeds over. Scottish doctor, James Lind, discovered sailors could be cured of scurvy with lemons in the mid-1700s. At that time, Vitamin C had not yet been discovered. Historically, lemon juice was the industrial food production’s sole source of citric acid used as a preserving agent.
Nutritional Properties of Lemon
Lemons are anionic, which means they have more electrons (negatively charged ions) of energy in their atomic structure. Most foods are cations (positively charged ions). The lemon is one of the only foods on the planet that has more anions that cations in its atomic structure. Saliva, hydrochloric acid, bile, and the stomachs’ digestive juices are all anionic (Biological Ionization in Human Nutrition.) It is believed fresh squeezed lemon juice helps remove toxins from the digestive tract. Support your liver first thing in the morning by drinking a big glass of water with half a lemon’s juice squeezed into it. One lemon contains half the amount of recommended Vitamin C. Lemons contain not only Vitamin C, but also potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Lemons are higher in potassium than apples or grapes!
Lemons at Home
Did you know lemon juice is naturally antibacterial? Dirty Dishwasher? Add lemon juice to the rinse cycle to clean. Dirty Roasting pans? A teaspoon of lemon juice will cut grease. Hard water spots on faucets? Cover the area with lemon juice, wait 15 minutes, then wipe clean. Smelly onions or garlic? Cut a lemon in half and rub the cut end over the cutting board. This will remove any scent from your cutting board. Spruce up ugly grout by spraying lemon juice, allow it to stand for ten minutes, then scrub off.

Lushious Lemon Hand Soap & Lotion
Young Living’s unique supply of citrus trees inspired the first formula of Lushious Lemon Foaming Hand Soap.
The hand soap has plant-based ingredients for cleansing, along with natural antibacterial qualities. The Lemon trees are grown at the Young Living farms in South Africa, United States and Argentina. The science department at Young Living began formulating and testing Citrus combinations to make a rich cream that had anti-toxic components from the plant itself. The product created from this testing is called “Lushious Lemon Lotion.” The beautiful scent and qualities of Lemon Myrtle from Australia enhances the healing qualities of the lotion. The skin feels soft and smooth, and it also helps to moisturize the skin on the feet. Put on cotton socks and the oils continue to work through the foot as you walk around. The lotion coats the skin; however, it still allows the skin to breathe. This is a vegan formula, free from chemicals and synthetics. What makes this formula even more unique is the oil from watermelon seeds that absorbs quickly and protects against anti-aging of the skin.
Lushious Lemon Essential Oil Blend
What evolved next was the Lushious Lemon Essential Oil Blend. The essential oils added to this blend are proportionally added to get the results to aid better health.
The added essential oils make the formula powerful yet with a beautiful clean scent. The Myrtle essential oil is extracted from distilled leaves in stainless steel vats. Ylang Ylang, Spearmint, Eucalyptus Globulus’ antibacterial qualities amplify the strength of this blend. This blends constituents’ content is evident in the combination of the essential oils to promote healing, well-being, and purification.
Lushious Lemon is not only used on location straight or mixed with a carrier oil, but it can be used in a diffuser to purify the air and lift the spirits. Consider adding one or two drops to purify water to receive its benefits in a beverage. A couple drops are delightful in salad dressings and smoothies.
This is a lovely blend that should not be overlooked. Instead of purchasing each of the oils in the blend individually, this blend has the right amount of each oil that complements the higher good of the blend. The clean odor is refreshing and notable. Don't forget to give it as a gift, anytime of the year.
