The citrus family plants have been a known favorite by native and traditional healers as a powerful anti-microbial plant to help simulate white blood cell function and inhibit invading infections. The peel, fruit and seed have been used to purify the air and taken as a tea for sore throat, cough, cold, flu and conditions of the sinuses and lungs. These have been used to lymphatic drainage and immune support.
They also have been used topically for reducing inflammation associated with muscle spasms and joint pain and especially beneficial when recovering from accident or illness when the energy levels are low.
These plants were commonly given by herbalists when the body was under extreme physical or emotional stressors to help provide it with support and strength. They have been given to bring calm and peace in states of anxiousness and promote energy and focus when tiredness and exhaustion prevailed.
The citrus family has especially been recommended by herbalists to support detoxication of the liver, lymph and kidneys. They have been helpful in removing excess water and wastes from the tissues and blood thus promoting oxygenation of tissues.
