Citrus x sinensis – from the peel
100% essential oil – 12ml
Country of origin: Italy
The orange tree gives us 3 stunning oils; orange from the fruit, petitgrain from the leaves and the fragrant neroli from the orange blossom. This orange oil is a particularly good one with a sweet, citrus aroma. Originally from China, sweet oranges are now widely grown in Asia, Brazil, southern Europe and the USA.
It has been used in clinical research to treat stress and anxiety. It is also widely used in perfumes, skincare and as an antiseptic.
HOW TO USE
I like to use orange in a diffuser, a room spray, in a bath or as a massage oil.
Use a maximum of 6-8 drops of essential oil for every 20ml of carrier oil or water. I like to blend it with frankincense, bergamot, lavender, vetiver or ginger. After a long day it is so relaxing with vetiver and frankincense in a bath with Epsom salts.
