This is a painting of a bowl of lemons, based on a picture posted on Twitter by Priscilla Woolworth (@ecowoolworth). She has an excellent eco store online. The new Woolworths.
Priscilla grew these lemons in her garden in Southern California. I painted them on my iPhone in London.
Various parts of the lemon plant are diuretic, antiscorbutic, astringent and febrifuge.
Lemon is excellent against rheumatism, arthrosis, and cholesterol. It has a great capacity to regenerate white corpuscles, strengthening the body’s defences.
It’s also very good against acne ( because it’s depurative)
The essential oil has antitumoral properties, preventing the formation of cancerous cells and helping the body not to develop metastasis once the disease has appeared.
Lemons are full of Vitamin E and C, antioxidant and very good for the skin.
There are so many uses.
I love lemons. Our cat is named after this magnificent fruit.
