Lemon is used externally to heal sores (apply juice), to relieve itching from insect bites (rub in juice), and to soften and reduce corns (poultice). One drop of fresh juice combined with warm water makes a cleansing eye wash. Generally, limes can be substituted and are grown with fewer chemicals. The citric acid content of lemons and limes is 4-6 times higher than oranges and at least three times that of grapefruit. Thus these fruits should not be used by those with too much stomach acid or ulcers. Besides, citric acid thins the blood, and so citrus should be used cautiously by those with weak blood signs such as pale complexion and tongue, insomnia, irritability, and thinness.

Start with 1-3 lemons daily for one week and increase according to need and desire (9-12 lemons daily can be tolerated by the robust person in need of their properties).Lemon peel is used similarly to grapefruit peel, although it has stronger ability to move stagnant liver, while lime peel has even more specific action on the liver.

Older people often take medications and supplements that thin the blood and contribute to easy bruising. Visi
