Lemon Peel

2 oz.

Lemon peel refers to the outer, zestful layer of the lemon fruit. Some potential benefits of lemon peel include:

Nutrient-Rich: Lemon peel is packed with nutrients, including vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, potassium, and fiber. It contains higher concentrations of vitamins and minerals compared to lemon juice, making it a potent source of nutrition.

Antioxidant Properties: Lemon peel is rich in antioxidants, such as flavonoids and polyphenols, which help neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress in the body. Antioxidants protect cells from damage, support immune function, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

Digestive Health: The essential oils in lemon peel contain compounds that stimulate digestion and promote healthy bowel movements. Lemon peel tea or zest can aid in relieving indigestion, bloating, and constipation by increasing gastric juices and bile production.

Skin and Hair Care: Lemon peel contains natural astringent and antimicrobial properties that make it beneficial for skincare and haircare. It can help cleanse and tone the skin, reduce excess oil, and prevent acne breakouts. Additionally, lemon peel extracts are used in hair products to promote scalp health and add shine to hair.

Directions: add one teaspoon of lemon peel to hot water. Steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Strain and enjoy. 


FYI: Please consult your healthcare provider prior to use if you are pregnant or nursing, taking any medication, or have a medical condition.
