There are many ways to incorporate it in your daily menu, but did you know that lemon also helps as a coating for the treatment of joints? Yes, indeed. For this purpose, we offer you a recipe that, if properly done, can relieve the pain in your legs and arms.
What you need to do is to put the peel of two lemons into a jar and pour them with olive oil to the top. Then, close the jar and leave to stand for two weeks. Once your medication is ready, apply the resulting oil on clean gauze and place it on the painful joint, then put a bag on the gauze, and a woolen shawl over it. Do the coating in the evening, and keep it during the night.
