Orange Essential Oils

orange-essential-oils2.jpgOrange is an eternally popular oil with a happy and uplifting fragrance. Children love its smell, and its soothing and comforting quality makes it suitable for use in a room diffuser to calm any over excitement. When used in massage blends, it is a great support for the lymphatic and digestive system, helping to eliminate toxins. This quality lends itself also to anti-cellulite blends, and it also finds a use in skin care for a variety of conditions.

Sweet Orange and Bitter Orange are different varieties, and although their properties and uses overlap to a large extent, Bitter Orange is more phototoxic. Orange essential oil blends well with spice oils such as cinnamon, clove, coriander, frankincense, myrrh, lavender, and clary sage.
