Dr Oz: New Uses for Everyday Things
Dr Oz said he has noticed a trend on social media. People love to see new uses for everyday things. He decided to apply this concept to a popular citrus fruit, Lemons. What is your favorite way to use lemons? They are popular because they are affordable.
Dr Oz: Lemon Nausea Remedy
Sarah, a Dr Oz viewer, said that she finally figured out the solution to her Morning Sickness and wanted to spread the word. Her tweet landed her a trip to the show.
Though she was getting close to her due date, she had problems with Morning Sickness during her first trimester. A friend suggested Lemon Water, which seemed to do the trick.
Squeeze 1/2 Lemon into hot water and stir in a pinch of sugar. Dr Oz said the taste was “very palatable.” He explained that it works because the nose is very connected to the nausea center. Choose a smell you like to help fight your nausea.
Dr Oz: Lemon Deodorant Solution
Did you ever think Lemons could be used as Deodorant? Melissa, who harassed fellow gym members in a silly video, said she picked up the tip from her doctor, who knows that he prefers homeopathic remedies.
The trick is simple: cut a lemon in half and apply it under your arm. But you may not want to do this right after shaving. Dr Oz noted that this is a chemical-free alternative, and it provides a fresh scent that may even kill bacteria that causes the odor to begin with.
Dr Oz: Lemon Dandruff Treatment
Roberta shared her success with Lemons for treating Dandruff on Instagram. She said she learned this tip from her grandmother. Processing your hair may be second nature, so why not use something natural to help achieve your desired result.
In a squeeze bottle, combine water with 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice. Shake it up and apply it to the scalp. Massage it in and let it sit for 10 minutes before rinsing and then shampooing. It works for men and women.
Dr Oz noted that Vitamin C exfoliates skin cells, which could be why it works for Dandruff also. Do you have another household use for lemons or something else? Share it in the comments or use the hashtag #OzInnovation.
