Description

Orange is derived from cold pressed expression of the peel of the fruit to produce an oil that is golden yellow in color. Some of its active constituents are limonene, bergaptene, citral, citronellal and myrcene. Some of its countries of origin are USA, Brazil, Italy, France and Spain.

Orange is an antidepressant, antispasmodic, stomachic (has a normalizing effect on the peristaltic action of the intestines) and is mildly sedative in its nature. It is also a lymphatic stimulant, helping to rid the body of toxins and fluids (water retention).

Orange is known as a “happy” oil that makes the atmosphere in which it is released feel warmer and friendlier. Some people say it carries with it the sunshine that ripens it! It is an excellent oil to use in the winter months as it helps to lift the winter “blahs” so well.

Orange oil can be used as an addition to your bath, but no more than 3 drops as it may cause skin irritation. It may also be combined with Lavender or Neroli to help with insomnia.

This oil blends well with Cinnamon essential oil, Clove essential oil, Nutmeg essential oil, and Lavender essential oil, as well as all of the citrus oils.

Orange can be found in the following blends:
