Celebrate National Lemon Month With Us!

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” is a familiar saying, But at Edgar’s Bath Goods, we believe there’s so much more to the lemon than meets the eye. We love the extraordinary benefit of lemons, especially when it comes to enhancing self-care and overall well-being. That’s why we have incorporated zesty lemon notes into two of our most exquisite scents… Bluebonnet and Country Rose.

With a quick search on Google, you can find an almost endless list of benefits carried by lemons and lemon by-products. Remember, there are some precautions out there, too, so read carefully and find the best way to use lemons in your self-care routine. Here’s a short list of some benefits for you to review as you think about how you can benefit from this tangy little citrus fruit.

You probably already know this, but we want to mention that lemon is the most popular flavoring around the world and is used for both savory and sweet dishes. Its bright flavor can lift a heavy dish to make it taste more fresh. Lemon is a perfect match for chicken, fish and veggie entrees, and it’s irresistible in fruit-based desserts like tarts and parfaits.

In the area of health, lemons are alimentative. They contain many of the nutrients our bodies need to thrive. Just one lemon contains 89.7 mg of potassium, 34.4 mg of Vitamin C, and 16.9 mg of Calcuim, among other vitamins and minerals (courtesy of the U.S. Department of Agriculture).

Thanks to its acidity, lemon is a natural cleaning powerhouse. However, it might not be the miracle cleaner some TikTok trends would have you believe. Consumer Reports suggests it is effective, but there are limits. Lemon does not kill germs, and since lemons are natural, they can breed mold if left out for too long. When used properly it leaves behind a fabulous scent!

One study shown on the National Library of Medicine’s website states, “In aromatherapy, (lemon) is applied either in massage oils or in diffusion sprays for homes and vehicle settings. The diffusion creates a fresh feeling, enhances relaxation from stress and anxiety, and helps with uplifting mood and boosting emotional and physical energy.” These are the very reasons why we carefully chose lemon essential oil in two of our scent profiles; Bluebonnet and Country Rose.

The bluebonnet is the state flower of Texas, and we wanted to create a representational blend that both soothed the mind and invigorated the senses, giving energy and positivity to the self-care experience. We infused this scent into four of our products: Luxury Bath Bombs, Luxury Bath Powder, Moisturizing Hand and Body Lotion, and our Cleansing Shower Gel. All of which have lemon essential oil added to them in safe amounts

When I think of a garden, roses automatically come to mind. Their fragrance is beautiful and pronounced, and a classic staple in the world of perfumery. Eager to offer this beloved scent to our clients with a unique twist, we turned to lemon for its vibrant, uplifting qualities. Our signature blend combines the romantic notes of rose with the warm, earthy tones of sandalwood, and the crisp zestiness of lemon, along with other complementary notes, to create a fresh, invigorating aroma that rejuvenates the senses and breathes new life into the traditional rose fragrance

As we kick off the summer months, make a beeline to your local grocery store and pick up some lemons. Incorporate them into various aspects of your daily life and explore new ways they can enhance your self-care routine. We wish you all the best as you embark on this zesty journey. Remember to take good care of yourself!
