Limoneira Celebrates Mother's Day with Citrus
SANTA PAULA, CA - Making #MomLife a thing to relish is Limoneira, with opportunities to celebrate and pamper those who were there for us through the good, the bad, and the ugly (crying face when she said no to candy for dinner). Mother’s Day offers an opportunity to shine a light on the ability citrus has to create powerful self-care products.
Megan Roosevelt, spokesperson for Limoneira, and Elizabeth Shaw, guest collaborator, are offering some tips and tricks on how to really do up the holiday, with a media campaign featuring recipes for tasty bites on Limoneira’s YouTube channel all month long.
Viewers can catch Roosevelt’s and Shaw’s creations all month long here.
In addition to Roosevelt’s and Shaw’s workings, global chefs and mixologists, nutritionists, and beauty lifestyle and green-cleaning experts will all offer their unique perspective, a company press release explains.
Some of the DIY recipes are as follows:
Whipped Lemon Lotion
This is a great post-bath luxury item to complement a relaxing night.
- 1 Limoneira classic lemon, cut in half
- 3-4 drops of lavender essential oil (optional—any favorite scent will work)
- ½ cup soft coconut oil (not melted, but not rock hard—room temperature)
Juice half of the lemon. Whisk ingredients together until you have a fluffy, smooth lotion. This can be done by hand or with an electric mixer. Apply and enjoy!
Cucumber Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing
This is a refreshing dish that works great with the spring weather.
- 1 mason jar
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp sugar of choice
- 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 ½ tsp poppy seeds
- A pinch of salt and pepper
- 1 long English cucumber, sliced
Add ingredients (except cucumber) to mason jar with secure lid or blender and shake/blend until ingredients emulsify. Pour over cucumber slices and mix so dressing coats slices evenly. Serve with meal of choice—or enjoy by itself!
