The history of lemons is interesting as well. Until about the 10th century, lemons were used mainly as decorative plants. The Crusades in the 11th century brought the plant into Europe and it made its first appearance in the New World in the late 1400s. Lemons and other vitamin C-rich fruits were particularly treasured for their ability to ward off scurvy. Today the main producers of lemons include Italy, Greece, Spain, Turkey and the US.

Lemons aren’t only good for your health but they have other uses around the household too! Lemons can deodorize your kitchen naturally, so say goodbye to all those harsh chemicals! Lemon essential oil can be used in a mixture for natural teeth whitening or even a natural face wash. Who would have known lemons are so useful!
