Grind some the dried orange peels and put them in small tea bags. Place these around your house in drawers, closets and basements. You can even place some orange peels at the bottom of your garbage bin before you place a plastic cover on it.

Peel an orange and dry them out for some days. Melt some wax and put pieces of dried orange peels into the wax. And that is how you make orange flavoured candles.

Orange peels can be used as scrubs while you are in the shower. Rubbing them gently on the skin will not only make your skin brighter but it will also give your skin great smell. You can infuse some dried orange peels into oil and use them as essential oils.
