Lemons For your health and home
Lemons are a jack-of-all-trades among fruit, essential for cooking and cocktails. But did you also know these Vitamin C bombs have astringent and antibacterial properties? This makes them amazing at everything from boosting immunity to skincare and household cleaning. First Fresh lemons go beyond the kitchen to look after your health and home.
A great Start to the day
A large glass of warm water with a big squeeze of lemon will hydrate, aid digestion and make you feel great in the morning.
Lemon essential oil can scent your home, and may even alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression. It’s also great for treating acne-prone skin.
Got cold or flu symptoms?
Make yourself a hot lemon, honey and ginger drink. It’ll warm you from the inside out and soothe a sore throat.
Lemons can clean just about anything
A rub with half a lemon will clean and sanitise chopping boards or bench tops; microwaving lemon slices in water will deodorise and loosen stuck on food; soak away stains on whites in lemon juice diluted in water.
Astringent, antibacterial, delicious lemons are true wellness superheroes – and First Fresh lemons are the best: grown in ideal conditions in sunny Gisborne, the citrus fruit capital of New Zealand by our expert growers. Look for lemons with the First Fresh sticker at your supermarket or produce shop and get maximum lemon benefits.
