Uses For Lemon Peel
A Root Worker would use Lemon for Uncrossing and any sort of bath mix for ritually purifying the self. A witch would likely perceive the Lemon from the perspective of the Moon. Most fruit bearing trees are associated with Luna and hence, the Lemon and its peel fall into the Her domain.
Conversely, Ceremonial magicians typically put Lemon Peel into the solar category, since it is bright yellow (sometimes with a touch of orange or green, if not yet ripe). Its tangy, zesty flavor makes me think of the Sun and not the sweet, luscious fruits that come to mind with the Moon.
Lunar fruits are generally things like grapes, blueberries, apples and other things that make their way into desserts as a main ingredient. You might argue for lemon pie but it’s really more of a flavor than a bunch of Lemons, dumped into a pastry. So I throw my lot into the solar pile but you can decide for yourself. Either way, magicians usually agree that Lemon Peel is a great magickal cleanser, for body, spirit and even magickal tools.
