Lemon Peel Tea - Lemon Essential Oil

Although the Lemon has been with us for a long time the origins of this fruit are a bit of a mystery. Thought to be at least 2,500 years old, the common lemon was originally thought to have been cultivated only for its ornamental qualities. Indigo Herbs has brought you two different lemon products for those who really enjoy the lemon infused taste and aromas that this fruit can give.

The common Lemon is thought to be hybrid of the bitter orange and the citron fruit hailing from North Western India. Arab traders brought these tangy fruits from the Middle East to the shores of Italy where they were grown as ornamental plants. It wasn’t until the Crusades that Lemon was fully introduced throughout Europe and by the 15th century this fruit had been fully indoctrinated into European cooking. By 1493 Lemons were introduced to the Americas and became a crop in Florida about 200 years later. In 1743 James Lind discovered that lemon in the diet of sailors helped in deterring scurvy. Although Vitamin C wasn’t known to be an important dietary need, James discovered that lemon held an essential element that fought the sailor’s most dreaded ailment.

There are many different types of lemon with some being naturalised to certain areas giving them specific tastes and attributes. While some are able to withstand cold and wind or coastal conditions, while others prefer dryer and more arid soils. Some varieties grow with variegated patterns and have abundant yields while some have a very sparse fruiting period. With all the differences in lemon there isn’t a strict definition of how the tree grows. All have the typical yellow fruit and ovate leaves.

Using Aromatherapy in your daily routine is simple, easy and can be enormously beneficial. Pure neat essential oils can be evaporated into the environment and inhaled while products that have already been diluted in an oil can be applied straight to the skin. There are lots of different ways to utilize the pure neat essential oils; these can be made into a room spray or used in an an essential oil burner/ vaporizer.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at affecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air. Adding essential oils to your bath is the best way to ensure the oils are absorbed through the pores of the skin while also inhaling the vapors; maximum benefit can then be had whilst enjoying a soak. Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Aromatherapy page.

Use 6-8 drops of essential oil in a bath and 2-4 drops in an oil burner. Use 10 -18 drops of essential oil per 30ml of carrier oil or cream. See Essential Oil Dosage Chart

Manufacture Process

Our essential oils are manufactured to GMP standards using steam distillation, extraction or expression. During steam distillation the plant matter is put into boiling water or infused with steam. The steam is collected and the oils are separated from the water. During extraction, a solvent is used to extract the oil, by creating a concrete. This concrete is made up of plant matter, resins, waxes, and essential oils. A second solvent, such as ethyl alcohol is used to extract the essential oils from the concrete, this creates an absolute. During expression the plant matter is pressed (at cool temperatures) to release the oils.

Essential oils need to be diluted first; never apply an essential oil directly to the skin. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth. Avoid if you are taking homeopathic remedies.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Grab a teapot, a cafetiere or your tea making equipment of choice. The botanical ingredients can be made into an herbal tea by infusing the herb in boiling water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy. Soak the lemon peel overnight in cold water, then it can be added to grains and rice after cooking, it can be added to fruit salads, yogurt, smoothies, breads and cakes.

1 - 2 tsp of lemon peel per cup of boiling water

1 teaspoon equals 2 grams (1 tsp = 2g)

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Lemon Peel Tea comes from Paraguay and is grown under supervision in Lemon tree plantations. When the lemon fruit is at peak maturity at the end of the summer they are handpicked and sorted for quality before being cleaned and peel separated from the fleshy innards. The Lemon peel that is used for Indigo Herbs Lemon Peel Tea has been rigorously checked ensuring it is absolutely packed with lovely zesty essential oils. After screening the lemon peel is then air dried out of the sun until most of the moisture has evaporated. This ensures that none of the essential oils are damaged by the strong rays of the sun. The peel is then packed and made ready for shipping. This process complies with GMP standards and has the Indigo Herbs seal of approval.
