Orange Peel




The orange is a hybrid between a mandarin and a pomelo, and it originated in a region encompassing Southern China, Northeast India, and Myanmar. The earliest mention of the sweet orange was in Chinese literature in 314 BC. Orange trees have been found to be the most cultivated fruit tree in the world. Dried orange peel has a concentrated orange flavor and is delightful in culinary dishes, infusions and as an extract.

In eastern medicine, orange peel has been used to help in supporting digestion as well as relieving congestions and excess mucus. It has been used to reduce nausea, increasing appetite and as an anti-inflammatory aid. It is an overall boost to the immune system to help fight off sickness, disease, and viruses. Orange peel and cinnamon sticks make a lovely addition to tea or as an uplifting potpourri.

Metaphysical uses for orange peel include energy, happiness, love, manifestation, luck, money, and divination. Adding two tablespoons of dried orange peel and some citrine to a skin care oil can be used as an anointing oil to uplift and bring a bright, abundant energy. You can add orange peel to an abundance spell to strengthen it or burn as an incense to increase divination skills and aid in meditation. Adding orange peel to a sachet and affixing it to your front entryway can attract good luck and fortune.
