As quoted from the packaging from the bMAKER dried orange peel package:

"Citrus sinensis, also known as sweet orange, is of the most popular and widely cultivated fruits of the world. The edible peel lends bright, tangy flavor to teas, mulled wines, baked goods and chutneys. Dried orange peel is also used to make scrubs, bath bags and potpourri blends.."
