Hi Buchi, it's so nice to learn that to take lemon juice in scorching weather would help to subside the heat and tiredness. Wow, what's more this would make us to feel energetic as well! I never expect that lemon works that well in our daily life. But it's a shame that I had cut off the lemon plant that fruited well in the front yard few years back. just because the sharp thorns of it pricked my hands easily when doing the weeding. We usually boil some herbal tea to keep us comfortable in the hot and dry season. There are several type of herbal tea. What we like most are Chrysanthemum flower Tea, wax gourd boiled water with brown crystal sugar added to it. We like to take watermelon fresh from the fridge as well. It's a wonderful and cool fruit that quench our thirst nice Have a nice day

Yes you are right. Water melon is very refreshing for hot summer. But why did you remove the lime plant Ikbooi? It is full of calcium and good for skin, digestion, heat, teeth etc. etc. It is like an angel. I do not have place to keep plants. Otherwise lemon and curry leaves plant will be my first preference.

Hi Buchi, It is true that lemon juice is good for summer but the problem is lemon is too costly here now. I am preparing lemon juice adding enough sugar and a pinch of salt into it. I am sending lemon juice to school for my son so that he can drink in the break time. Actually his class teacher has made special request to all parents to send lemon juice for kids. They are sitting in the class for long hours and the hot is too high and they need some refreshment in between. Lemon is good for our health, has some medicinal value and is rich with vitamin C.

You are doing wonderful thing by sending lemon juice to the school to your kid. I heard it is very hot in Delhi. Lemon juice will cool the system and adds calcium to the body.

I do not take this on a daily basis Buchi.Here the fruit is very dry and raw during summer ;Rarely I do love to take it fresh woth water, apinch of sugar and salt. I opt for water melon, and drink water .Sweet lime and oranges are also ok but I consume them plain wihtout taking the trouble of making the juice.

Oranges and sweet lime are also good for summer. I am happy you are taking at least these fruits. Take care friend.
