Lemon Peel was introduced to Europe from India by the Arabians, and was medically used by Avicenna and early Arabian physicians. The peels are used in traditional Chinese herbal medicine for specific health support such as improving digestion, treating headaches with nausea, vomiting caused by the excess of bile and treating sore throats [1][2][3][4]
