Citrus is a genus comprising some 16 species of trees. The more- well-known species are Lime, Lemon, Orange, Grape and Tangerine. Lemon is called the tree of life because of its many medicinal properties. 
The leaf is rich in aromatic essence: limonene and linadol. The rind contains 0.5 per cent essential oil, which comprises limonene, coumarines and flavonoids.

The juice contains Vitamin B1, B2, and C, flavonoids and organic acids. A lot of research has been done on this plant. Its medicinal properties are scientifically proven and recognized.

 This is one of the contributions modern science could make to help promote traditional medicine. Rather than dismiss the claims of traditional medicine, Science should use its complex technical apparatus to clinically verify these claims.

 Below are some of the medical uses of lemon. Please note that whatever is said of Lemon here is also true of the other citrus species, though to a lesser degree.

Lemon leaf is sedative and antispasmodic. Those who suffer from insomnia, nervousness and palpitation should soak five to seven leaves of lemon in a teacup of hot water and allow it to infuse for 15 minutes. 
The dosage is one cup two times daily.

Lemon leaf will serve as a good and better alternative toValium and other synthetic sedatives, which, by the way, have side effects.

 To get maximum result from Lemon leaf, take the preparation daily for at least one month. Do not expect that your insomnia or nervousness would disappear overnight.

For migraine headache and asthma, soak two handfuls (a handful is the amount of dried or fresh leaves you can hold within your fist) of fresh Lemon leaves in one bottle (beer bottle)of hot water. Allow it to infuse for 10 minutes. 

Drink two cups every night for two weeks.This preparation should be taken warm. 
This applies more particularly to asthma patients. Lemon leaf is also good for worms. For this, prepare as for migraine and asthma above.
 The dosage is three cups every night for one week. 


 Lemon rind is good remedy for lack of appetite, indigestion, constipation and typhoid fever. Add the rind of 10 Lemon to four litres of water and bring to boil. 

Take a cup three times daily.

 Like the leaf, Lemon rind is a good worm expellant. JUICE: Lemon juice is an excellent remedy for scurvy, a disease caused by lack of vitamin C. Vitamin C [ascorbic acid] is found in fruits and vegetables.
