Orange (15 mL)
Orange – Citrus Sinensis (15 mL)
The orange is the most commonly grown fruit tree in the world. Our orange essential oil is cold-pressed from the skin of citrus sinensis trees grown in the USA.
Orange essential oil is great for lifting the spirit and clarifying dull skin. Apply to the abdomen to ease painful swelling from indigestion. Diffuse or apply topically in 2-5% dilution.
Sweet Orange Essential Oil has a sweet, citrus smell much like the orange peels it is derived from, only more intense and concentrated.
There is some argument, but it is believed that sweet orange was brought to Europe by the Arabs in the First century along with the bitter orange.
Some aromatherapists have reported that a small percentage of few people have experienced dermatitis from the limonene content of sweet orange. Orange Essential Oil is considered photo-toxic and exposure to sunlight should be avoided.
Do not use if pregnant.
