Orange Essential Oil is very much like Bitter orange in its applications. Properties are as follows: antidepressant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, aphrodisiac, carminative, cordial, deodorant, digestive, stimulant (nervous), tonic (cardiac, circulatory). It has also been applied to combat colds, constipation, dull skin, flatulence, the flu, gums, slow digestion, and stress. It differs from regular orange sweet in that it is from a first pressing that enhances the therapeutic quality.
Mixes well with:
Almost all essential oils, but especially well with allspice, anise, basil, bergamot, cinnamon, citronella, clary sage, clove, eucalyptus, frankincense, geranium, ginger, grapefruit, hyssop, jasmine, juniper, lemon, marjoram, oregano, neroli, nutmeg, palmarosa, patchouli, rosewood, sage, sandalwood, and ylang ylang.
Do not apply before going out into sunlight. Highly sensitive people should perform a patch test. Some aromatherapists have reported that a small percentage of few people have experienced dermatitis from the limonene content of Sweet Orange Oil.
