Even if you, too, have been throwing out lemon seeds, you should start keeping them so you can figure out their potential uses.
Uses for Lemon Seeds
Lemons are a popular citrus fruit because of their distinctive taste and many practical uses in the kitchen and around the house.
They are an excellent source of vitamin C, and their natural acidity aids digestion and lessens bloating.
Their widespread use in the Mediterranean region has historical roots in Asia, when they were brought by traders.
Lemon seeds and peels are usually on hand because they are used so frequently in the kitchen for seasoning food, making sauces, and even baking lemon-flavored pastries.
And since lemons are so frequently used for their juice, pulp, and zest, there’s no reason to waste the seeds. Here are a few suggestions for making the most of it.
Once you’re done using the lemon, set the seeds aside and rinse them completely in room-temperature water using a strainer.
After thoroughly drying them, set them aside on a paper towel. The next step is to “peel” the seeds by carefully removing their protective covering with tweezers.
Then, place some wet cotton in a small container, like a yogurt pot. After planting the seed in the cotton, wait seven days. A tiny shoot will emerge from the seed after around 7 days.
You can encourage further growth of your young sapling by maintaining a wet cotton medium and surrounding surroundings until the plant has formed tiny roots.
The next step is to prepare a tiny pot for planting your seed in, using a combination of soil and perlite to improve drainage. The newly planted sprout will still require attention.
It should be kept in a well-lit, warm environment, away from drafts.
In order to have a lemon tree that, once mature, will give you juicy fruits, you must make sure the soil is always moist and wait for nature to do its work.
Make a perfumer
Seeds from lemons can be used for more than just planting new trees. One of the items that can be made is a cabinet and drawer perfumer.
The seeds still need to be rinsed, but this time without the peel being removed. The unique aroma of citrus seeds is preserved even after being washed.
Then you may put them in a canvas bag and use them to fragrance whatever you choose, from a chest of drawers to a bathroom.
In the winter, you can attach them to the radiator for a refreshing citrus aroma. All you have to do is figure out how to make the most of the features of a citrus fruit’s seeds.
