Dried orange peel has a number of uses for the beauty industry. The peel contains a higher level of vitamin C than the fleshy insides, which is great for your skin as it helps to protect it from free radical damage. This makes it a great addition to facial skincare as it can fight against ageing and encourage healthy, glowing skin.

Orange peel can be included in pot pourri mixes and added to bath salts or scrubs for its decorative qualities and scent.

The dried peel of the orange is widely used in gin production – both the sweet and the bitter varieties. The gentle citrus taste of this botanical pairs well with spicy or earthy gins to give it a new dimension. Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and cassia all work well as does a hint of rosemary. Whether you opt for the sweet or bitter variety will of course affect the flavour profile of your gin, traditional recipes used the Seville orange, which is bitter, as at one point these were the only oranges available. In the 15th century the sweet orange became popular and has remained so ever since.
