Lemon Peel Powder

Although orange peel is more commonly prescribed in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, lemon peel also stimulates the appetite by encouraging the release of gastric juices to digest food and helps provide vitamin C. Lemon peel is added to scores of herbal teas and herbal formulas for aroma and taste enhancement. Many people eat lemon peel or add it to teas in order to enhance flavor and impart its delicious, citrusy aroma.
