Hanging Lemon and Chilli? Why?

In ancient days when the technology was not that much advanced, since the pesticides were not available, our ancestors invented this Lemon and chilli as an insecticide to protect themselves from insects, mosquitoes, etc., 

When the Lemon and chilli are tied up with a cotton thread, the thread that passes through the Lemon absorbs the juice extract from it, then the smell of it gets spread into the surrounding environment with the help of air.

This smell helps prevent mosquitoes and insects from entering your home or office. Chilli also has the nature of killing germs; hence, it acts as a germ killer.

Also, the smell from Lemon spreads positive vibes; naturally, it makes you live a pleasant and healthy life.

Alright. We have seen the reason for hanging Lemon and Chilli in our house. Let’s see the reason for keeping Lemon in our Vehicles.

Why do you hang Lemon into your Vehicle?

Hanging Lemon and Chilli

The smell from Lemon keeps you Fresh for a long time, so if you hang the Lemon in your Vehicle, it keeps you fresh, and it prevents you from sleeping.

Guess you are driving your Vehicle. Sometimes you may feel sleepy, but this smell produced by Lemon keeps you awake to at least some extent.

This is the reason people hang Lemon in the Vehicle.

Alright. Then what is the reason behind the lemons placed under the Tyres before starting the vehicle for any good reason?

If you see, there is no reason behind it. This custom came from the old bullock carts, where the bulls were frequently used to get infections on the toe due to muddy roads.

They made the bull stand on the lemon to prevent such infections in the toe before traveling. But we are still following it in our modern vehicle tires without any reason.

Benefits of Hanging Lemon and Chilli

  • The Cotton thread absorbs negativity
  • Protects you from Bad Evil Spirits, Bad Eyes, Bad Thoughts
  • Prevents Mosquitoes and Insects from entering inside
