A yellow to bright orange mobile liquid with a sweet, fruity odour.
The dried peel and seeds are added to love sachets, and the flowers to those sachets designed to lead to wedded bliss. When you eat an orange, think of a question you want answered; it must be a yes/no question. Count the seeds in the orange: if they are of an even number, the answer is no. If odd, yes.
Orange peel is added to prosperity powders, incenses and mixtures, and the Chinese have long considered oranges symbols of luck and good fortuene. Orange juice is drunk in rituals in place of wine. An infusion of orange peels, drunk, will guard against later drunkeness, while the water distilled from orange flowers is added to love and lust potions and baths.

Sweet Orange(Citrus sinensis)
Citrus fruit, and oranges in particular, are very high in vitamins A, B and C. In Chinese medicine, Li Shih-shen says "The fruits of all the citrus are considered to be cooling. If eaten in excess they are thought to increase 'phlegm', and this is probably not advantageous to the health". Orange used to treat coughs, colds, anorexia and malignant breast sores. Oil is both cold expressed and distilled from the fresh peel. The distilled oil is known to be photo toxic but there is no evidence that the cold pressed oil is. Like all citrus oils, orange oxidizes quickly, so large amounts should be kept cool and dark for long storage.
