100% PURE PROPERTIES
Deliciously juicy and refreshingly sweet, Sweet Orange is a staple aromatherapy oil for creating a bright, uplifting and invigorating ambiance. Well-known for its uplifting and worry-reducing properties, orange oil carries cheerfulness while simultaneously calms, making it ideal as an overall mood enhancer and relaxant. Its balancing effect on the mind and body, and its warming and joyful qualities benefit people of all ages. Its broad aromatic appeal renders it an excellent choice for diffusing in diverse groups.
Add a few drops to your beauty products like lotion, shampoo, cleanser and mouthwash for the cleaning properties and a strong, fresh scent. Orange oil has a natural fresh, sweet, citrus smell that will fill your kitchen with a clean scent. Add a few drops to a spray bottle along with other cleansing oils like bergamot oil and water to create your own orange oil cleaner. You can also use orange oil for chasing away ants. Use orange oil with a carrier oil to create a homemade massage oil that can be rubbed on skin for smooth and radiant skin.
Though a safe non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitizing oil, orange oil is considered by most to be photo-toxic. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight after topical application to the skin (even if diluted). Do not take sweet orange essential oil internally. *Always dilute with carrier oil when applying essential oils to skin
ESSENTIAL OIL HOW-TO
Put a diffuser by your bed and diffuse oils while you sleep at night or in the family room while you're reading or winding down in the evening. Throughout the day, diffuse for work or study with oils that improves brain power or energy. This is also a good way to add the scent of an essential oil to a room.
Clear your mind then inhale directly from an open bottle or rub a drop of oil between your palms and breathe in the aroma. Do as needed throughout the day. Several drops of essential oil are placed on a cotton ball or tissue and allowed to evaporate into the air.
3. SKIN APPLICATION
Besides your face and body, the most common places to apply oils are the bottoms of feet, chest, temple and pulse points. Combine 5 to 10 drops with a carrier oil like Jojoba, Avocado or Rosehips oil.
IMPORTANT: Just because it's from a plant doesn't mean it's safe to rub on your skin, or breathe, or eat, even if it's "pure." Natural substances can be irritating or cause allergic reactions. Like anything else you put on your skin, it's best to test a little bit on a small area and see how your skin responds.
Add 6-10 drops of essential oil to bath water or use with sea salts or Carrier Oil for a soothing bath and moisturised skin.
When you visit the massage centre, it's always a good idea to bring your own favourite oil! Or give yourself a massage at home for a good night sleep. Make your own massage oil by adding 20-25 drops diluted to 1/2 cup of Carrier Oil. Start by massaging the feet as it allows oils to quickly absorb into skin.
Add 6-10 drops of essential oil to water in a glass spray bottle, shake well before use. Spray into the air to deodorise a room or set a refreshing mood. You might also want to use a solution of water and your favourite essential oil as a yoga mat cleaner. Always shake well before use.
