Orange Peels can do Wonders !!!

Each time you eat an orange, which always starts by skinning and throw the shells. Apparently, I've been doing wrong all my life! Just below the skin peels is a lot of fruit acids and vitamin C. The shells have even more phytonutrients and flavonoids than the inner pulp - which most of us have been Tossing down the drain.

Here are 6 reasons I have recently discovered why you should never throw away your orange peels.

1. The shells improve skin tone

Orange peels can remove skin blemishes and dark spots! Its vitamin C maintains the elasticity of the skin, prevents dullness and adds a healthy glow. Even acts as a natural sunscreen by blocking harmful UV rays!

That is how:

  • Mix 2 teaspoons orange peel powder and natural yogurt with 1 teaspoon honey to make a paste.
  • Apply the paste on the face and neck and massage gently with circular movements.
  • Let stand for about 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
  • Use this mask paste 2 to 3 times per week.
  • To prepare orange peel powder, dry peels in the sun for about 3 days.

2. The fights signs of aging

Orange peels contain tons of antioxidants, which fight free radicals responsible for wrinkles and sagging skin. This also works great as a skin toner!

That is how:

  • Mix 1 tablespoon orange peel powder and oatmeal powder with enough honey to make a paste.
  • Apply this paste on the face and neck area.
  • Let stand for about 30 minutes, then rinse with cold water.
  • Apply once a week for best results.

3. The teeth whitening

You know that the yellow tint in the teeth? Orange peels can remove it! They contain a compound called d-limonene, which helps reduce tooth staining (even smoking!)

That is how:

  • Rub the inside of an orange peel (the white part) on the teeth for 2 to 3 minutes, then rinse. Do this twice a day until you have achieved those pearly whites.
  • Alternatively, you can mix some orange peel powder and a little water to make a paste. Add the dried leaves of bonus points. Use this paste on the toothbrush and brush your teeth. Repeat twice a day for a couple of weeks.

4. Weight Loss Aids

Vitamin C has been shown to help lose weight. Orange peels have tons of matter. In order to help your weight loss goals, replace the coffee or tea drinks with orange peel.

That is how:

  • Dry the organic orange peels in a cool, dry place.
  • Put 1 tablespoon dried shells in 1 cup hot water.
  • Cover and let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the shells and add some raw honey.
  • Drink 2 cups a day.

5. It works as a natural air freshener

Let's face it: Oranges exceptional nose. Their shells fantastic smell. That strong smell of citrus is very good to mask unpleasant odors through their home.

That is how:

  • Put a handful of fresh orange peel, a little lemon juice and some cinnamon sticks in 2 cups of water. Boil for 10 minutes. Strain, let the mixture cool and then transfer it into a spray bottle. Use as needed!
  • Put some orange peel powder in small bottles and use them at home.
  • Put dried orange peels in the bottom of your trash can to stop these terrible odors arise.

6. Repels mosquitoes and ants

Insects suck. But you're in luck - they hate orange peels! They do not like limonene (which contributes to the smell of citrus) in orange peels. Actually, this works with all citrus peels.

That is how:

  • Make some orange peel powder and put it in areas where insects congregate.
  • Rub all the skin to act as a natural insect repellent fresh orange peels.
  • There you have it - do not dispose of those orange peels!
