Cedar Lemon


Imported from Asia by our ancestors, the cedar fruit is characterised by a thick peel which brings numerous healthy properties.

A substance that could be extracted from the peel helps with the digestion process by relieving flatulence thanks to the content of vitamin C. It is also an excellent disinfectant.

As other citruses, the cedar fruit has laxative properties. Drinking a freshly squeezed juice helps to purify the body, while mixing it with lukewarm water helps with constipation.
