Is it Sept yet? Soon, we will be reaching the end of summer, and by the Harvest Full Moon, it will be time to start shifting into cleansing our bodies once again. So, I couldn’t help but to post this cool looking striped lemon I shot the other day... with quick Ayurveda sum up on the Citrus medica, the botanical name of Lemon, as the first and ultimate body cleanser.
This wonder citrus, is used highly extensively in Ayurveda. It is used in food, medicines, and purification... promoting a healthy digestion and pacifies Kapha dosha.
Hot water lemon therapy is a famous home remedy for weight loss. Mix 1-2 teaspoon of hot water early in the morning on empty stomach, decreases fat deposition.
Notes: Rasa – Taste – Amla (sour), Guna (qualities) – Laghu (light to digest), Teekshna (piercing).
