NO orange peels . The essential oils which give the orange its beautiful fragrance are SOLVENTs - the chemical is limonene , which is used in "green" cleaning products and is strong enough to strip oils and grease and to unglue adhesives. It is an irritant to skin .
There is pure orange essential oil which you can buy to create your own pot pouri or bath solutions . There is a warning to not use orange peel oil in bath if you are pregnant . In RATS d-limonene has been shown to cause cancer -- .
In green agriculture orange scent repels insects . If your kitchen is stale take a peel and give it a twist . The volatile oils will quickly freshen it.
I buy a product which is concentrated natural d limonene from orange peels called Orange-A-Peel , on the lable it says Poison -- has many uses in kitchen and bathroom cleaning plus pest control. I experimented with different concentrations to spray around the recycling bins to keep ants away . It works . Same for flies .
But for a floor freshener in the puppy room ? never ever again. I did have a scary experience many years ago where trace of orange peel concentrate was left in the dampness of the floor , pups come in get feet moist , start licking the floor , their feet and boy oh boy -- irritated stomachs - took a while to recover on that one -
Champion juicer is quite the gift ! The pulp that comes out after juicing has little nutritional benefit - that's the purpose of juicing -- basically indegistible fibre . I wouldn't even use it for soup -- I know they recommend it for this purpose but so much flavour and nutrition is removed the "soup" is a bit on the yucky side .
this "Fyi, his raw diet mix consists of about 2/3 veggies and 1/3 meat.. the veggie portion consists of: spinach, peas, carrot, celery and beet. The meat portion is equal parts: cow heart, cow liver, cow tongue, kidney and ground beef."
is a diet too high in fibrous vegetable matter , especially if it is the waste of the juicing efforts , and too low in meat , and little evidence of mineral / calcium via bone .
