Save your orange peels and create a wonderfully thrifty, immune-boosting bath. You see, vitamin C (which oranges are full of) is one of the few vitamins that can be absorbed through your skin. The vitamin C from the peels not only benefits your immune system and helps fight off illness, but it’s also great for your skin. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) acts as an anti-oxidant which fights skin-damaging free radicals, and promotes collagen production (which is also good for your skin, organs, bones, teeth, etc.). To make this vitamin C bath just make sure that you wipe the orange peels clean before putting them into the bath. You don’t want any pesticides floating around in the water with you! That’s it; just draw a warm bath and chuck in your orange peels.
Reusing what you already have, in ways that will further enrich your life, is what being thrifty is all about!
