I am amazed at the the versatility of the lemon. In reading one of my favorite Journals I thought I would share some of the amazing uses. Just imagine, a product that can be used as medicine, cleaning agent, disinfectant, and a beauty treatment.
Lemons are a source of citric acid which is used as a natural preservative and to give a sour taste to food or drink. The lemons pith and peel yield pectin, which is used in the food industry as a thickener, emulsifier, and gelling agent. Additionally there is an oil extracted from the peel that can be used in food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries. The list can go on and on.
One of my favorite things about the lemon is the scent. Laguna Candles signature scent is " Laguna Paradise." It is our number one selling soy blend scented candle. It is comprised of lemon, citrus lime and verbena.
People often overlook the importance of fragrances for the fullness of experience. That mistake can be fixed by letting the scent of Laguna Paradise fulfill your personal space. Laguna Candles offers a wide variety of memorable aromas to tell the story about the infinite beauty of our planet. Made of domestically grown sustainable soybeans, Laguna Candles ensures the cleanest possible burning, while providing room-filling, yet not overpowering flavor.
I started my company Laguna Candles for two reasons. My love for candles and scents and the desire for a clean burning scented candle and a another important reason was I wanted my three daughters to have a choice to choose between working for someone or for themselves. For many years I also sold Luxury Real Estate In the Coastal communities of OC. I previewed some of the most beautiful homes in the US. What surprised me the most, was how much people invested in the interior of their home, and yet what I found was as beautiful as these homes were, so often the homes were void of scent.
Typically when I walk into any home the first thing I notice is the smell. Scent has always been a large part of who I am. From my days as a little girl mesmerized by the scent of Chanel No. 5 that my Grandmother (Lola) loved, to walking in one of my favorite luxury Hotels and smelling beautiful scents all through out.
Many years ago my husband Clarence's tennis buddy Herman told him one day, what he loved about our home was that it always smelled wonderful. That was one of the nicest complements that I have heard to this day. I recently read an article that I would like to share from Hotels Mag's newsletter. It was written by Sherri Sheck-Merril, and she was gracious enough to allow me to share with my readers. Please enjoy. http://tinyurl.com/8awk55t.
