Lemon is no doubt one of the healthiest fruits in the world. This wonderful citrus fruit is extremely beneficial for the treatment of numerous health issues including throat infections, indigestion, constipation, dental problems, and fever, internal bleeding, rheumatism, burns, obesity, respiratory disorders, and high blood pressure. It can also be used externally to improve skin and hair quality.
The greatest benefit lemons provide is immune system boost and blood cleansing.
Lemons are a real storehouse of nutrients – vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, A, B1, B6, magnesium, bioflavonoids, pectin, folic acid, phosphorous, calcium, and potassium.
Although people generally think that the health benefits of lemons come from the flesh of the fruit, it’s actually the peel that’s more health beneficial. Lemon peel is a great antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent, which effectively relieves joint pain. It is the sweet-scented volatile essential oils found in the lemon peel that relaxes blood vessels and provides an anti-inflammatory effect, which makes them extremely efficient in easing joint and nerve pain.
The recipes we recommend here are the two most efficient methods to get rid of joint pain using lemon peel. All you need is a couple of kitchen ingredients you probably already have.
#1 Grate the yellow part of the lemon peel carefully, leaving the white part out. Apply the peel directly onto the painful part rubbing gently. Secure the grated peel with a bandage and leave to act for two hours.
#2 After peeling two organic lemons, place the peel in a jar. Fill it up with olive oil. Close the jar and leave the mixture to sit for two weeks. When the mixture is ready to use, massage the painful area rubbing gently. Wrap with gauze and let it act overnight.
