All the Lemon.


Our Lemon tree is out of control.  Just this past weekend, I sent the kiddos out back to pick them. you know what they say, 'when life hands you lemons, pick them before the roof rats show up.'

So. maybe they don't say that but it's a real thing, we have to be super proactive in picking the lemons to avoid unwanted critters. It's cool though, we make lemonade and lemon cake and lemon cocktails and whatever else I can think of.


It's fine, the kids have a blast hunting for lemons and picking them, we bring them in and juice them. Sometimes I'll save the rinds to infuse into vinegar for cleaning, but other times I'll just compost them (you can't compost the whole fruit as the citrus juice will throw off any microbes in your compost but you can compost the skin after juicing).


Lemon skins are full of essential oils helpful for cleaning and dissolving stuck on gunks and glues.

That's right! The cleansing, purifying, and invigorating properties of Lemon make it one of the most versatile oils. When I don't have a tree exploding with fruit I'll use dōTERRA Lemon essential oil in my car and classroom.   If I don't have the peels, I add Lemon oil to a spray bottle of vinegar and water to wipe down my table, counter-tops, and stick surfaces in my house. Lemon oil also makes a great furniture polish; simply add a few drops to olive oil to clean, protect, and shine wood finishes.
