Orange peel is considered aromatic with its therapeutic nature, warm temperature and spicy and slightly bitter in taste. The citrusy brightness and pungency of the fruit make it a natural mover and shaker of energy.
Orange fruit is the best source of Vitamin C, which is good for health and skin care as well. However, most of the benefits of orange are in its skin itself. The more aged the peel, the more potent its therapeutic energy.
