Against The Grain
Essential Oils are made by distilling the most beneficial part of the plant being used. The most beneficial part of an orange is the peel! The peel contains more than four times as much fiber as the fruit inside, and more tangeretin and nobiletin—flavonoids with anticancer, antidiabetic, and anti-inflammatory properties. A 2004 study on animals suggests that these nutrients may even reduce harmful LDL cholesterol better than some prescription drugs. (Oprah.com)
I personally do not have any desire to eat orange peels, I just throw them away. Knowing that orange essential oil is made by distilling the orange peel, I just use orange essential oil in my diet!
Note: All recipes use 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils labeled for internal use. Do not follow recipe unless you have oils approved for internal use.
Some of these recipes call for wild orange essential oil, this is the same as orange oil from Young Living, just a different name! One of the recipes calls for Orange vitality Essential Oil.
