I use lemons in my kitchen for cooking almost everyday and  I really enjoy half a lemon squeezed into my water.  Needless to say, there are juiced rinds of lemons around almost everyday and it is the best thing that ever happened to my nails.

I have never had super nice nails, I have been a gardener as a profession for 8 years now and I don’t care what soap you use, the dirt never seems to come entirely off.  Enter lemon juice, the best cleaner I have found for my hands.  I use a reamer to get the juice out for a recipe, then instead of throwing the rinds away, I keep them to clean my hands and nails after any sort of activity involving dirt.

For cases involving machine grease, I juice half a lemon, add it to baking soda and use that to scrub my whole hands.  It removes all embedded dirt and grease, leaving your hands clean and your nails white.

Just as a final note, it really stings if you happen to have any cuts and scratches on your hands but it helps disinfect them as well.  After a thorough cleaning, I like to rub coconut oil into my hands.  I have used this method over the last couple of years to repair the cracks in my fingers and prevent future ones.

    I just came across your website today and I love your natural recipes. I love love lemons. I have a question. Is it safe to draw a bath soak containing 2 cups lemon juice (bottle), and or add lemon rinds for 20 mins once a week. And, I’ve been spraying lemon juice on my skin and face after I shower. The results are amazing, I am 52 and told I look like 35, now I have a big head. It is safe for my skin to use everyday. I haven’t had any adverse reactions.

      If you haven’t had any adverse reactions it’s probably fine to use lemons in a bath, I’ve never used it myself so I really couldn’t say! It sounds like a great idea though and I’m going to try it out for myself!
