Use This Kitchen Herb For Cold Prevention
You can prevent a cold 85% of the time using this “kitchen herb” of dried orange peels. Here’s how: save the peels from your oranges to make a tea the moment you feel a cold coming on. Simply cook them in water with a little honey to cut the bitterness of the peel.
A kitchen herb is any plant or its seed commonly used in cooking. Some kitchen herbs are seasonal but most are consumed throughout the year.
As a kitchen herb, orange (or tangerine) peels are loaded with vitamin C and vitamin K. Using freshly dried peels concentrates the vitamins, enough to help you from getting a full-blown cold, or stopping it before it takes hold.
If you haven’t begun to save your citrus peels, start this winter when they are part of the winter diet:
- Dry in a brown lunch bag
- When fully dried, store in a glass jar
Orange Peel Tea Recipe
- Place a handful of dried citrus peels, about 1 ounce, in a small saucepan.

- Strain out the peels, and you should have enough for two doses. Sip while warm for soothing relief.
Add this tea to your regular arsenal of Vitamin C, zinc, and herbs to fight the oncoming cold or limit its severity should it slip past your defenses.
