  1. I keep the peel in my water along with cucumber slices. I eat the cucumber slices as I drink my water but I do throw the lemons out after about 12 hours of soaking in different refills throughout the day

  2. Would it be possible to freeze the lemon peel and thaw at a later date and then pour the hot water over the peels. You didn't give any quantity of lemon peel to water in the recipe. Thank you

  3. The Ayurvedic understanding is that the sour taste of lemons reduces Vata which is associated with fear and anxiety. Vata accumulates in the colon which is why the hot liquid nature of lemons act as a morning laxative for people with a dry, cold, and rough constitution. This allows the airs of the body to continue downward, out of the head thus reducing stress.
