Citrus fruit is used, both in cooking and to make jams and preserves. The
majority of the citrus fruit available has been sprayed with pesticides, so it
may be best to continue your habit of discarding the peels of fruit you buy to
eat or juice.
Organic, dried peel is the best choice for teas. Both orange and lemon peel are used in herbal teas, and can help replace fresh fruit in winter diets.
Citrus essential oils are a must have component of many aromatherapy applications. Combine them with base and middle notes for a full bodied aroma.
