Sweet Orange Citrus sinensis - Brazil
Essential Oil - 16 oz (473 mL)
Orange essential oil is cold pressed from the rind of the fruit. Orange oil is sweet and fruity and adds a cheery note to blends. Most other essential oils blend well with it, particularly woodsy and earthy oils that needs a fresh top note. Orange essential oil is credited as being antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, bactericidal, fungicidal, and stimulatory. As with all other citrus oils, do not apply to the skin in concentrations greater than 0.5-1% to avoid discolouration of the skin when exposed to the sun.
