Wow! Bengi. You are so informed. Thank you. In this case the grazers are humans with clippers.

to Deb. I live in Los Angeles, Ca. The unproductive side is highest or tallest so it gets plenty of sun and less shade.  The fruit laden side is in a moderate sunlit area all day. The tree was pruned in June when I first moved to this location.
Fruit begin growing early summer.  It takes a long time for the fruit to ripen after they have reached a considerable size.  Squirrels and other animals climb the tree and enjoy the ripened ones.  The tree is the American tree.  Other trees in my backyard, (except the grapefruit), tangerine, apricots and mulberry have not produced new fruit since the pruning and  I have not watered nor has it rained significantly. Still the lemon and orange trees are producing well without watering.

Skin care; mix fresh thyme, rosemary,and sage in boiled water. Seal it in a glass jar for a month. Strain. Put the liquid in a spray bottle. You can now use it as a skin hydrant, hair moisturizer or styler, it helps relieve scalp and skin inflammation and irritation.  If you steep herbs  in olive oil it is good on salads. Melt raw coco butter about a teaspoon full, in a cup of melted shea butter. add a small amount of coconut oil to the melted oils. After spraying the legs gently pat the oils on after a few days of just the spray. Do not melt oils over fire or microwave. use a hot bath method.  (hot pot of water then put the cup in to melt the oils.).  This saves the properties of the oils.

I have a persimmon tree with fruit growing on only one half of the tree.  The fruit is beautiful and astringent. Has anyone used the gallic or tannic acid in the persimmon for beauty products? The persimmon has wonderful health properties and the pucker is so strong, certainly there is an anti-wrinkle effect (maybe), ( I hope).
I has been used as ink in other cultures so I am not looking to stain my face just smooth my skin.
