ORANGE PEEL


What is it?

Organic Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis) peel

Traditional Uses

For hundreds of years, herbalists trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have used orange peel to improve digestion, relieve intestinal gas and bloating, and resolve phlegm. During the earliest days of orange cultivation, peels were often more prized than the fruit they protected due in large part to the essential oils they contain. These oils were used as a topical skin treatment, as a malady for indigestion, and as an additive in many different foods. Sweet Orange peel is also commonly used to add zest or flavor to foods.
