There is anecdotal evidence that suggests that drinking lemon peel tea wards off infections such as flu, common cold, ear infection, and urinary tract infections (UTIs). This could be credited to its antibacterial properties.

Studies have also found that lemon peel hinders the growth of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and drug-resistant fungi. These are some promising benefits, but more research is required to prove these benefits.
