Orange spice is one of the four spices obtained by interacting with a cat and making it chase the Hell-Rats in Evil Dave's basement. This will produce any coloured spice, with 1 to 4 doses. If the orange spice is used in a stew, it becomes a Spicy stew, which can temporarily raise the stats of Cooking, Crafting, Construction, Firemaking, Fletching, Runecrafting, or Smithing. The amount it can raise these stats depends on how many doses used in the stew (between 1 and 3). Each dose of spice can cause the boost to either increase or decrease a stat by -1 to +1, up to a maximum of -5 or +5 with three doses.

Spices of the same colour can be used with each other, so that they are combined to save space. The maximum number of doses is 4. Once all doses are used, it becomes an empty spice shaker, which is currently useless.

Some players commonly use the Orange spice for its small chance of a +5 Construction boost. It also is very useful for boosting your Smithing temporarily for tasks.

Orange spice is considered one of the most useful spices, along with Brown. This is because Spicy Stew with 3 Orange spices has the potential to boost skills far more than tradeable equivalents, with the one exception of Cooking, which is more effectively boosted with Chef's delight (m).

It is suggested that you use a Wily cat to catch the Hell-Rats because they offer a better chance to kill the rats than any other feline. At the very least, one should not use kittens, as their success rate is extremely low.
