Orange Peel (Citrus sinensis) is the rind of the Sweet Orange. Evidence suggests it originated in a region encompassing southern China, Northeast India, and Myanmar, arising from a natural cross between a mandarin orange and a pomelo. Traders along the Silk Road are credited with bringing oranges westward, where they became prized possessions in Europe by the 15th century.

Medicinally, Orange Peel has long been valued for its vitamin C content, particularly beneficial in warding off scurvy during long sea voyages. The peel, leaves, and flowers of the orange tree were also used in traditional medicine for a variety of ailments, from digestive issues to respiratory problems. Modern science is still exploring the potential health benefits of various citrus compounds, including their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Culinary uses for Citrus sinensis are extensive and range from the simple pleasure of enjoying the juicy fruit itself to its starring role in countless cuisines around the world. Orange juice is a ubiquitous breakfast drink, while the zest and juice add a bright, citrusy flavor to marinades, sauces, desserts, and beverages. Orange peels are candied, used to infuse liquors, and add fragrance to dishes. From marmalade to orange chicken, the versatility of Citrus sinensis in the kitchen is undeniable.

Citrus sinensis also holds a place in the realm of magic and folklore. In some traditions, oranges are associated with abundance, prosperity, and good luck. The orange blossom, the fragrant flower of the Citrus sinensis tree, is a symbol of purity and innocence, often used in wedding ceremonies. In other cultures, oranges are incorporated into rituals for love, attraction, and divination.
