The orange tree is a very medicinal tree. The leaves, the flowers and the rind of the fruit share medicinal properties, which is given so much in the sweet as bitter varieties of the plant. In the fundamental thing, the orange tree possesses essential oil that is present in the leaves, fruits and flowers (Thompson, 1981; Font Quer, 1982; Valnet, 1984; Tyler 1979).. The composition and concentration are some variations, depending on the organ in question. Thus, for example, oil of the flowers, which has been called orange essence, is present in a concentration of 1 to 1.5 g / kilo and is very complex in structure (Font Quer, 1982). Furthermore, although the fundamental properties of the medicinal plant essential oil explained also noted the presence of other active ingredients. In the leaves, flowers and fruit of bitter orange, bitter glycosides are: hesperidin, and aurantiamarina isohesperidina, among others (Tyler, 1979; Thompson, 1981; Font Quer, 1982; Valnet, 1984). The sweet orange pulp contains large amounts of sugars (sucrose or cane sugar, dextrose and levulose) and vitamins A, B and C (Font Quer, 1982; Valnet, 1984, Tyler 1979). Organic acid is also found in all the orange pulp (Valnet, 1984; Tyler. 1979), and leaf has discovered the presence of an alkaloid, L-estaquidrina (Font Quer, 1982). Its main property is to act as a sedative of the nervous system, thus offering useful in disorders of nervous origin and as a sleep aid. This property is greater when using the flower, then the shell is in power, and in last place is the leaf. Also used the plant, especially the fruit rind, to calm some digestive discomfort: flatulence, dyspepsia, digestive sluggishness and lack of appetite. In the literature, a prompt appears particularly interesting for facial paralysis with orange leaves compresses (Zinn, 1929).
