From face masks and hand creams to cleaning products and cold–and-flu remedies, the scent and flavour of lemon have long been used by manufacturers of home and beauty products to imbue their products with the zesty freshness which this citrus fruit is associated worldwide, and it’s little wonder why… Packed with vitamin C, an aid to digestion and linked to sparkling eyes and skin, this humble little fruit is packed with goodness that, with a little know-how, can easily be harnessed to allow you to bypass the chemicals and produce your own all-natural products for home, health and beauty.
With our increasing awareness of reducing exposure to chemicals and the importance of keeping things natural, as well as the ever-growing realization of the environmental impact of disposable plastic packaging, there has never been a better time to go back to basics, embrace all-natural ingredients and regain control of what we are putting in and on our bodies. The Natural Apothecary: Lemons opens by exploring the benefits of lemons and looks at how to grow your own at home. The following pages are broken into sections on home, health and beauty, containing over 40 simple recipes for all-natural, home-made products that allow you to utilize the vitality of lemons with ease; make a bruise balm infused with lemon zest, a fragrant hand lotion for soft and youthful skin, or a chemical-free cleaning solution guaranteed to leave your home sparkling.

An informative and interesting book, full of ideas and hints. Recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC
I would’ve called this book “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Lemons But Didn’t Know What to Ask!” There is so much information in this book about everything from how to grow lemons, to how to use lemons for health issues and beauty treatments and so much more. I didn’t know how powerful lemons are and will be using the, a lot more in my daily diet. Includes many recipes as well, for ways to ingest lemon internally as well as ways to use lemons externally. Thanks to NetGalley, the author and publisher for an advanced reading copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Who doesn't like the fresh clean scent of lemon? Lemon has so many purposes beyond smelling great! Presented in a clear easy to follow guide this has everything you could possibly want to know about lemon and a few things you didn't yet know you wanted to know. :) The book suggests the juice and zest of lemon daily for many health healing and preventive matters. According to this book a lot of our illnesses and diseases are caused by poor eating which lemon juice can cure or prevent. Need to clean your home naturally without added chemicals and poisonous fumes. Lemon cuts the grease naturally on stove tops,dishes,glass shower doors and more. Old time cleaners like vinegar and baking soda are mentioned as well for an excellent cleaning job. Not only for cleaning lemon also cuts the grease in the body after eating for easier digestion and a relief for those with low stomach acid. Lemon has so many uses another natural thing it is used for is healing of the body not only on the inside but outside as well. Massages,deodorant,face washes to clear acne and more. I think you will find this old fashioned back to basics book as fascinating as I do!
