MEDICINAL USES OF LEMON LEAVES


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 to Valium 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 lemon leaves you can hold within your fist] of fresh lemon leaves in one bottle (beer bottle) of hot water. Allow it infuse for 10 minutes.Drink two cups every night for two weeks.
This applies more particular 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.
