Orange Essential Oil. The oil of abundance. Create. Rejuvenate. Restore.
Unleash your creative spirit. Rejuvenate your skin and inner being. Restore energy and support your mood. Orange essential oil is an effective and valuable addition to your natural health care bag of tricks. Orange essential oil is another example of Mother Earth’s perfection. Here is why you need to keep a bottle of Orange essential oil with you at all times.
Orange essential oil is one of our most popular essential oils. It is cold pressed from the rind. We source it from the Dominican Republic. Orange essential oil is high in monoterpenes and d-limonene which simply means that this essential oil is an effective immune system, cellular and mood support when threats are high. And it is an enhancer to other essential oils making it perfect to blend with others. My favourite oil to blend with Orange is Peppermint. We diffuse this combo in our little abode in the afternoon when we all need a bit of a pick-me-up in order to get through that homework routine. My energy low time it bang on 3pm, right as the afternoon routine is kicking off. This Orange and Peppermint combo supports me through this time.
Properties of Orange essential oil include antidepressant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, digestive, sedative, tonic.
Uses: We use this oil aromatically, topically and internally for physical and emotional support.
WARNING: Citrus oils are photosensitive. This means that when citrus oils are applied to the skin and then the skin is exposed to the sun the risk of being burnt increases. For this reason AVOID using citrus oils on exposed skin during the the day.
Aroma and your sense of smell is the fastest way to your brain. Chemical molecules in the air are detected by the olefactory bulbs in your nose and send a message directly to the limbic area of your brain. This is where your mood, memories and feelings are housed. Setting an intention, which will become a memory, while smelling an essential oil is a powerful tool for supporting your mood. Orange oil is known to have an inspiring and uplifting effect whilst also being calming to the mind and body. Quite simply, open up your bottle of Orange oil and inhale to begin feeling the positive effects.
1. Emotional Support & Respiratory System Support. Orange essential oil has been found to calm and soothe emotions. Physically this can help clear the airways (great for immune support while flying) and it can have a decongesting effect. How? Place a drop of essential oil in the palm of your hand, gently rub your hands together. Cup your hands over your face and inhale deeply.
2. Diffuse. Diffusing Orange oil will cleanse the air in your space, especially useful when our homes are closed during cooler months. Diffusing this oil also supports our immune system, so diffuse when feeling under the weather but also when you’re feeling well in order to maintain that wellness. Like I mentioned earlier, diffuse with Peppermint essential oil to further help with focus during work, study time and/or homework time. Diffuse with Lemon, which is also an awesome oil that promotes focus, to increase the anti pathogenic properties.
3. Creativity & Abundance. Orange essential oil is known as the ‘Oil of Abundance’. Diffuse or use cupping technique mentioned when you’re looking for inspiration and energy.
“At it’s core, Orange teaches the true meaning of abundance. It encourages individuals to let go of scarcity mindsets with all of their manifestations, including: fear, nervousness, inflexibility, workaholism, lack of humor and the belief that there is not enough. Orange reminds the soul of the limitless supply found in nature. Fruit tress, like orange, give freely to all in need.”
“Orange also assists an individual’s natural creative sense. It inspires limitless solutions for problems and issues. One never needs to fear. Orange invites the individual to completely let go as a child does and to live from their authentic Self. In our authenticity, we are abundance.”

4. Baby Stomach Discomfort. Place a drop or two in some carrier oil (Fractionated Coconut Oil works great) and massage over a childs/baby’s tummy to help with discomfort. This can also be done for an adult with ’sluggish’ digestion.
