As I'm sitting here eating oranges, I decided to see the benefits of oranges (besides deodorizer and in foods).

For Your Skin & Health:
  • The flesh of an orange contains 3.1 grams of fiber
  • Orange zest contains 3 grams of fiber
  • The skin of the orange contains natural oil - perfect for moisturizing your skin & keeping it young.
  • Oranges contain vitamin C - fights cancer
  • Orange peels help lower your cholesterol and keep blood pressure at the normal rate
  • Oranges contain Beta-carotene - protects skin cells from getting damaged
  • Orange peels can be used for facial scubs and oil baths
  • Rubbing fresh orange peel can repel mosquitoes

For Your Home & Garden:
  • Orange peels keep cats, ants, and slugs away from your garden
  • Orange peels can kindle your house fire
  • Orange peels can be used as a deodorizer
According to Factoidz

Stay warm (or cool if you have weather like we have in SC)
