An Orange’s peel and apple’s skin are similar because most of the nutrients are in the skin of these fruits. According to Rebecca Wood, author of The New Whole Foods Encyclopedia, “One medium orange contains over 60 flavonoids and 170 different phytonutrients.” They are good for your skin, your system and your home too. Dr. Jaishree Bhattacharjee, Ayurvedic consultant with Satvikshop helps us find out it’s different uses.
Medicinal Properties of Orange Peels
As per Ayurveda, orange peel is tikta (bitter) and it improves digestion and can speed up your metabolism. It helps to naturally beat gas, heartburn, vomiting and acidic eructation. It’s also great to perk up your appetite and relieve nausea.
Due to its pacifying properties, orange peel powder helps dissolve phlegm in respiratory systems, alleviate coughs, and asthma.
Most of the beneficiary aspects of orange peels come from their essential oils, which have anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. Essential oil “d-limonene” has the ability to defuse stomach acids and maintain normal intestinal movements. It also promotes normal liver function.
Studies have shown that orange peel can dissolve cholesterol and triglyceride. That means consumption of an orange peel can benefit obese people who have high cholesterol levels. It has a flavonoid known as hesperidine, which is said to be effective against colon cancer and osteoporosis.
Essential oils from orange peels are sedative in nature so it makes them great for calming nerves and inducing sleep. Use orange peels in baths or simmer in a pot to uplifting your mood or to beat insomnia naturally.
Beauty Properties of Orange Peels
Rub some orange peels on your skin gently if you have oily skin. Oily skin responds well to application of orange peels. It helps balance the skin’s oil and makes your skin smoother and softer.
Dried orange peel beads can act as a natural exfoliator by removing dead cells and blackheads gently and naturally.
Orange peels help in removing dark spots and blemishes.
Due to its cleansing, anti inflammatory, anti bacterial and antifungal properties, it works well against pimples and acne.
To remove damp or musky odor your house and fill it with beautiful fragrance, boil a few peels in water and maybe add some clove or cinnamon.

BANANA PEELS
Like oranges, make sure you use organic banana peels to reduce your exposure to pesticide levels and you may even want to try the wash described above anyways.
Banana peels are full of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins, so they can naturally cure many ailments and can aid cell regeneration. Here are just a few uses if you know more please comment some in the comment section on the bottom of this article:
Water Filtration
Research shows they have a capacity to absorb lead and copper from water.
Bug Bites
Just rub a banana peel on a bug bite to soothe the skin and reduce the itch.
Bruises
With regenerative properties, banana peel can speed up the healing of bruises.
Teeth Whitening
Rub the inside of a banana peel on your teeth for a couple of minutes every other day, and your teeth could be noticeably whiter in a few weeks.
Warts
Banana peels help eliminate warts and prevent their return. Tape or some how strap a piece of banana peel to the wart overnight for about a week or rub the banana peel on the affected area daily. This can also work for plantar warts. A potato skin has been known to be able to do the same thing.
Scrapes and Scratches
Rub a banana peel on small cuts or scratches and it can help promote healing.
Splinters
The enzymes help dislodge the splinter and can help kick-start the healing process if you tape a piece of the peel over a splinter for a couple hours.
Acne
A banana peel can soothe the inflammation and irritation of acne. It also helps to prevent future outbreaks. Rub a peel over the acne every night. You should see a positive change within a few days.
Psoriasis
Once or twice a day, try rubbing a banana peel on a psoriasis-affected area. Bananas have properties to reduce itchiness, moisturize, and heal psoriasis. You should see noticeable differences in a few days.
Rashes and Itches
Poison ivy, mild rashes, dry skin, irritated skin and even sunburn. Banana peel is good for relieving itch and promotes healing of the skin. Rub the peel over the rash or affected are twice daily until it is gone. If you notice it getting worse you should see a professional.
Headaches
Simply take the banana peel and spread it out across your forehead and relax while the nutrients are absorbed into your skin.
Wrinkles
Regularly applying banana peel to your forehead, face or cheeks can tighten the skin, shrink pores and reduce wrinkles.
Household
Banana peels are great for polishing. After removing the stringy parts from the peel, rub away and watch the shine.
Article referenced from Prevent Disease
One last reason and it’s surely not the only use left, but we would advise you to always compost your unused food waste as it makes for great organic nutrient-rich soil to grow your future plants with. So remember these tips next time you go to throw away any peels! Have a quick google search to learn more.

Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
