If there exists a fruit on earth as energizing and comforting as our solar star, it’s the orange. Sweet orange develops and stores an essential oil easily extracted from its peel. New Roots Herbal has selected a 100% pure, cold-pressed essential from the fruit zests of sweet orange (Citrus × sinsensis), which invigorate a room like a freshly peeled orange. Limonene, from the monoterpene family, accounts for approximately 50% of its active ingredients. In addition to limonene, coumarins, ketones, and aldehydes contribute to its intense and pleasant citrus aroma.
Its fruity and vibrant fragrance enhances mood and relieves nervous tension. Mix with lemon or lime essential oil for an exotic scent, or with clove essential oil for a more comforting ambiance.
In topical use, its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties make it a good ally to nourish mature, irritated, or acne-prone skin. A few drops added to a vegetable oil, such as sweet almond oil, will stimulate the lymphatic system and help remove toxins from your skin.
Its antiseptic properties make this essential oil a prized component of natural cleaning products. Furthermore, sweet orange essential oil helps deodorize, so if you are looking to freshen up your closet or a room in your home, lightly spray with a mist of distilled water and sweet orange essential oil.
