Very many thanks Raja Saheb. Pesticides and wax has already become a serious problem with many fruits and also some vegetables too. Putting the rind in very hot water for a few minutes will help removing the wax coat and to a large extent the pesticide too. But will that drain away the good property also from the rind?
Also thanks to Chakresh Jain ji for his valuable post. more  
Almost 25 years ago there was two page feature on orange in rajasthan patrika in jaipur. I only remember one great line from that which is " peel the orange, give all the inside pulp to the animals and eat all the outer peel yourself " explaining that for human stomach peel is the best to control all your Bp/cholestrol/indigestion. more  
Durgaji. Done some more Home Work for you. Which is as follows:
Caution: Since most orange orchards are sprayed with pesticides today, the orange peels can have high concentrations of the poison on them. But that’s not all. To make oranges look more appealing, wax is rubbed on them. So make sure you wash orange peels properly before eating them. When buying dried orange peel, ensure that it is sold by a trusted brand.
Battles Heart Disease
There are as many active ingredients in orange peel as there are in the actual fruit. One of them, hesperidin, is a fantastic antioxidant which protects your heart by lowering your blood pressure – the top cause of heart disease. In addition, orange peel helps to lower your cholesterol, thus adding another layer of protection against cardiovascular problems.
Once you develop the taste, eating one Orange Peel daily will meet your requirement. more  
Raja Saheb, a more detailed note on the quantity/dose would be more useful. For high BP patients what dose for what level of BP would be useful? more  
helpful and useful tips. more
