Most of us are constantly on the lookout for ways to improve and support our immune systems. When it comes to boosting your immune system, one of the most well-known natural agents is vitamin C! The next time you’re eating an orange, instead of throwing out the peel, this TikToker shares how you can turn it into a multi-use vitamin-C powder!

To make this powder, add your orange peels to a pan, and bake them in the oven for 30 minutes at 200 degrees. Then, add them to a blender, food processor, or coffee grinder until they turn into a real fine, golden powder. That’s it!

This homemade vitamin C powder is a fantastic and easy way to add a burst of citrus to your meals. Mix a teaspoon of this powder into your morning smoothie, sprinkle a little into your oatmeal, or add a subtle natural orange flavor to your tea, which will help soothe a sore throat as well. You can also add some water and plant-based sweetener to make a brightening face mask.
