Orange oil is an essential oil produced by cells within the rind of an orange fruit.
Sweet 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 emotionally warming and uplifting. It is an excellent oil to use in the winter months as it helps to lift the winter “blahs” so well.
When used in skin care, orange has properties that cleanse and rejuvenate the complexion as well as revive dull skin.
This oil can be used in a diffuser at home or at the office for a joyful and pleasant fragrance.
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.
Orange essential oil has mild aphrodisiac properties. Systematic and regular use can cure problems such as frigidity, erectile problems, impotence, and decreased libido.
