This month’s issue is all about Lemon! The phrase “When life gives you Lemons, make Lemonade” suggests we take something sour and make it sweet. And while there are times to have sweet medicine, Lemon’s sour medicine is actually beneficial and perfect just as it is. We’ll talk about the sour side of Lemon and how this is good for our digestive system and our body in general. Learn how to take this seemingly ordinary kitchen fruit and make some extraordinary herbal medicine.
In this issue we’ll explore all parts of the Lemon’s fruit (technically called a hesperidium which is a type of berry), using the pith, peel and juice in many ways. Come explore the less used side of Lemon for treating colds and digestive ailments, preventing dehydration and anointing yourself with sweet scents through games, puzzles, stories, songs and more!
