This Is Why You Should Never Throw Away Orange Peels

There are many recipes for teas that help you lose weight and also accelerate your metabolism.

Most people think that these teas are a diet supplement for people who are trying to lose weight.

People often talk about orange juice when dieting. Being a good source of vitamins and giving the body a filling sensation, many diets incorporate the use of orange juice, often at breakfast.

When we stay in a hotel or bed-and-breakfast, orange juice is always one of the options that accompany a healthy breakfast.

But, what happens after the orange juice is made? The orange peel is normally thrown away.

What many people don’t know is that the orange peel is rich in medicinal properties, which help treat and relieve the symptoms of various diseases such as:

– An excess of uric acid
– Arthritis
– Hypertension (high blood pressure)
– Gout
– Intestinal problems
– Fever
– Kidney stones
– Weakness
– Ulcers
– Obesity

Tea made from the orange peel aids in weight loss because of its digestive and anti-inflammatory properties.

Here's how easy it is to make orange peel tea:

After making your orange juice (preferably organic), keep the peel and wash it thoroughly.

Store it in a dry environment for a period of 24-48 hours.

After the drying period, add one liter of water in a pot and boil the peel and 10 cloves for five minutes and drink during the day.

Besides being an ingredient of weight-loss teas, the orange peel can also serve as an ingredient for your beauty treatment in two simple and effective ways:

1. Body Peeling

To have a soft and firm skin, simply put an orange peel in a gauze and use it like a sponge during your bath.

2. Eliminate foot odor

The peel completely absorbs the bad smell, just put an orange peel inside your shoe.

The benefits of orange extend beyond the nutrition of orange juice and the effect of orange-peel tea and can also make a difference in your daily life and in your home.

Here are some recipes that take advantage of the benefits of the orange in less conventional ways than the use of the orange juice:

Eco-friendly disinfectant

In addition to cleaning and disinfecting due to its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, the environmentally friendly disinfectant made from orange peel can also be used as an air purifying spray due to its pleasant smell.


Place the orange peel in a glass jar and fill the pot of vinegar until it covers the whole peel.

Close and leave the container in a dark place for three weeks so that the peel can dissolve.

After that period, strain the liquid and transfer to a cleaning product container of your preference.

Natural Insecticide

The scent of orange peel repels insects so you can use both your eco-friendly disinfectant or simply spread orange peels around to ward off unwanted insects.

Now that you know the benefits of the orange go well beyond orange juice, figure out how you can best use the orange peel and improve your quality of life!
