Oranges are used extensively in Chinese medicine. 

Sweet orange oil consists of about 90% limonene, a solvent used in various household chemicals, such as to condition wooden furniture/floors, and along with other citrus oils in grease removal and as a hand-cleansing agent. It is an efficient cleaning agent which is promoted as being environmentally friendly and preferable to petroleum distillates.
