The Magical Properties of Lemon Peel in Witchcraft

Lemons are sacred to moon magic and also bring the invigorating presence of the sun through its bright yellow color and association with the solar plexus chakra. 

These are used as ornamental plants and their green oval leaves produce aromatic flowers during winter. The citrus scent that Lemons bring, produces uplifting emotions and helps in decision-making while its acidic taste is ideal for magical purification.

Typically, lemons are used in celebrating lunar deities and are also used as staple elements for summertime ceremonies. It is customary for every witch to place lemon peels on the altar during sun magic spells and rituals. 

Dried lemon peel is added to incense blends, spiritual washes, or bathwater. This also works well in love magic when mixed with other herbs inside a mojo bag. For protection, lemon peel can be used to make up witches bottles or thrown directly at an intruder.

Lemon Peels absorb and break negative spirits that envious people cast on you. Giving food to strangers with a lemon ingredient also facilitates brand-new relationships. It also facilitates the clearing of energy blocks and old attachments that hinder life and career expansion.

Lemon is an essential part of a modern witch’s herbal cabinet and is made into different beverages to quench the thirst during summertime. Lemon Peels encourage optimism and positivity in the face of adversities, as the saying goes; when life gives you lemons, make lemonades.
