Product Details

Orange peel, the outer skin of the orange fruit, is not only flavorful but also versatile. It is rich in essential oils, flavonoids, and other compounds that contribute to its distinct aroma and taste. Here are various uses for orange peel:

Culinary Uses:

  1. Zest: The outer colored part of the orange peel, known as zest, is commonly used to add citrus flavor to a variety of dishes. Grated or peeled orange zest can be added to salads, desserts, marinades, and sauces.

  2. Candied Orange Peel: Orange peel can be candied by simmering it in a sugar syrup. Candied orange peel is often used as a sweet topping for desserts, a garnish for cocktails, or as a standalone treat.

  3. Flavoring Baked Goods: Dried and ground orange peel can be used as a flavoring agent in baked goods such as cakes, cookies, muffins, and bread. It adds a citrusy aroma and taste.

  4. Tea: Dried orange peel can be used to make a fragrant and flavorful orange peel tea. Simply steep the dried peel in hot water and enjoy it on its own or as part of a tea blend.

  5. Infused Water: Add fresh or dried orange peel to water for a refreshing and lightly flavored drink. This is a healthy alternative to sugary beverages.

  6. Spice Blends: Ground orange peel is a common ingredient in various spice blends, such as pumpkin spice and some curry blends. It adds warmth and a hint of citrus to the mix.

Household Uses:

  1. Natural Air Freshener: Place dried orange peel in strategic locations around the house, such as closets or drawers, to act as a natural air freshener.

  2. Potpourri: Dried orange peel can be used in potpourri blends to create a fragrant and decorative mixture for the home.

  3. Cleaning Agent: The natural oils in orange peel can be used for cleaning. Make a homemade cleaner by steeping orange peels in vinegar for a citrus-scented cleaning solution.

Beauty and Skincare:

  1. DIY Scrubs: Ground orange peel can be used as an ingredient in homemade facial and body scrubs. It provides a gentle exfoliation and a refreshing aroma.

  2. Aromatherapy: The essential oil extracted from orange peel is used in aromatherapy for its uplifting and energizing properties. It can be diffused or added to massage oils.

  3. Skin Toner: Infuse orange peel in witch hazel or water to create a natural toner. The astringent properties of orange peel can help refresh and tone the skin.
