Hello Sunshine – Oranges

According to Dr. Mercola, orange peels are the healthiest part of the orange and no one eats them. They can help with weight loss,
blood pressure and lowering your cholesterol.
Here are some great ways to use them.

Grate them and dry them, put them into your salads, sprinkle onto fresh
broccoli, stir fry, baking, and they really give carrot cake a punch.

- Or Make Natural Hairspray -

Go Natural - Re-use a bottle- Save Money-Save the Planet!

Just take an orange peel and boil it in 1 1/2 cups of water for about and hour. Let sit to cool. Strain and add about 1 tbsp natural apple cider vinegar. This preserves the spray and also adds shine to your hair. You can also add a drop or two of rosemary essential oil.

Why does it work? The natural sugar in the orange peels :).

Why bother making hairspray from your orange peels?

  1. If you are eating oranges, you are eating healthy
  2. You can re-use a bottle. This saves our planet some plastic and also saves you money because you are making it from something you already have.
  3. It’s natural!  No toxins. Period.
  4. Get a little vitamin C on your skin, and some vinegar and rosemary too.  How could that be bad?
  5. It takes longer to search Facebook than to do this. Try it, you will LOVE IT.

 

  • you are saving money because you are using peels you would have thrown away

  • You are saving chemicals in your hair and aerosols in the sky
  • You can be proud of yourself for being creative and resourceful

Here is the recipe you will find inside this card:
Go Green By Using Your Oranges Twice for Natural Products

1- Make citrus-scented vinegar: just take your squeezed oranges or peels and place them into a jar filled with white vinegar. Let sit for about 3 weeks and strain.

2 – Company coming? Place used peels into a crock pot with a cinnamon stick and your home will be beautifully scented without smoke or artificial means.

3 – Make your own Hairspray. YES! You can make hairspray from orange peels. The simple reason it works is because the sugar in the peels acts as the binding agent to your hair. No aerosols, no toxins, and you can use the same bottle over and over to save the planet some plastic. Here’s how:

Simply collect peels until you have about 3 cups. Then, put them into a crock pop and fill the pot with water to just cover the peels. Cool, strain the peels, and pour into a spray bottle. Add a tiny bit of alcohol to preserve, a little bit of apple cider vinegar for shine, and water the rest of the way.
The more peels, the more sticky it will be.
