Product Details

Lemon Peel (Citrus limon), dates back to ancient civilizations. Evidence suggests lemons were cultivated in Assam (India), northern Myanmar, and China. Arab traders introduced lemons to the Middle East and Europe, where they quickly gained popularity for their unique flavor and medicinal properties. Lemons were even used as currency in some parts of Europe during the Middle Ages.

Throughout history, lemons have been praised for their medicinal applications. Sailors were issued daily rations of lemons to ward off scurvy, a vitamin C deficiency causing fatigue, bleeding gums, and loose teeth. The high citric acid content in lemons also acts as a natural preservative and disinfectant. In traditional medicine, lemon juice was used as a topical antiseptic and astringent for treating wounds and sore throats.

Culinary uses for lemons are vast and varied. The acidic juice adds a bright, tart flavor to countless dishes, from savory marinades and salad dressings to sweet pies and lemonade. Lemon zest, the fragrant outer rind of the fruit, is packed with essential oils that elevate desserts, sauces, and even cocktails. Lemons can also be preserved in brine or candied for a longer shelf life and a concentrated citrus punch.

Lemons are believed to bring good luck and prosperity. They are used in cleansing rituals to purify spaces and banish negativity. The invigorating scent of lemon is said to promote mental clarity and focus. So next time you reach for a lemon, remember you're not just picking some fruit; you're connecting with a rich history steeped in flavor, folklore, and practical uses.
