Boiling orange peels and cloves

Boiling orange peels and cloves: an old habit of our grandmothers🍊

Our grandmothers were known for their wisdom and practicality, especially when it came to family health. One of their old habits worth revisiting is boiling orange peels with cloves.
Orange peels are a powerhouse of vitamin C, flavonoids, and other antioxidants. These nutrients can help shield cells from damage caused by free radicals, which are linked to premature aging and certain chronic diseases.
Cloves, meanwhile, are rich in antioxidants, minerals, and essential oils, boasting antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and digestive properties. When combined, orange peels and cloves create a warm, aromatic drink with a sweet and spicy flavor. This herbal tea is an excellent way to enjoy the benefits of these two natural ingredients, known for their antioxidant, antibacterial, and digestive qualities.
2 orange peels
5 cloves
250 ml of water
Carefully wash and dry the orange peels.
Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan.
Add the orange zest and cloves, then reduce the heat.
Let it infuse for 15 minutes.
Strain and serve the herbal tea hot.
The combination of orange peels and cloves in this herbal tea offers several health benefits, including:
Strengthening the immune system
Protecting cells from free radical damage
Fighting bacteria and infections
Reducing inflammation
Promoting digestion
Personalize your orange peel and clove herbal tea according to your taste by adding other ingredients like cinnamon, ginger, apple, or lemon. Sweeten as desired with sugar, honey, or an artificial sweetener.
This simple, traditional practice of our grandmothers not only brings a delightful and healthful drink to your table but also connects us to the timeless wisdom of using natural ingredients for overall well-being.
I love you all💕💕
