Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil, 10ml


Essential oils should play a part in every home that has chosen to avoid household pollutants found in everyday cleaning products.

Essential oils often smell wonderful, can be transportative,and can restore harmony to a room.

In addition, they’re often equipped with many other positive benefits including being anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and antiseptic which means they are excellent  ingredients to add to your homemade cleaning products such as a white vinegar infusion or homemade personal care products such as hair rinse or toothpaste!

As they’re powerful ingredients, please ensure you take care when using and ask a qualified aromatherapist for direction if you’re unsure how best to incorporate into your life.

NB: the essential oils are the only product that has plastic (the lid and inner) . On balance as essential oils help create a chemical free home and help us avoid plastic in the long run by investing in bulk and DIY ingredients, we decided it was crucial to stock these.

Organic Sweet orange (Citrus sinensis) 

Sweet orange essential oil has a sweet, zesty and refreshing aroma.
The plant
The orange tree is native to China and India and is now also found throughout the Mediterranean region, Israel and the USA.
The extraction 
Sweet orange essential oil is a fruity, tangy oil, extracted from the peel of orange fruits by mechanical cold pressing, to maintain the integrity of the active ingredients and for maximum yield.
Sweet orange is renowned for uplifting the emotions, calming nervous digestion, and encourages the elimination of toxins by stimulating the lymphatic system. It is used in aromatherapy to promote happiness and warmth and to relieve tiredness and listlessness.
On topical application, sweet orange aids in the absorption of Vitamin C, which is linked to collagen formation and the support of the skin’s natural integrity.
The orange tree was introduced into Europe in the 16 or 17th Century, possibly by the Crusaders.
Historical uses of the orange which are of course maintained today include the food industry, including the making of delicious marmalades, in perfumery and for making Curacao, the popular West Indian liqueur.
Interesting fact 
Whilst sweet orange is the oil extracted from the peel, the orange flowers give us neroli and the orange leaves give us petitgrain.
Chemical constituents 
Nerol (Alcohol), Citral (Aldehyde), Limonene (Terpene), Methyl anthranilate (Ester).
Sweet orange essential oil blends well with black pepper, frankincense, geranium, clary sage,
coriander, lavender, may chang, rose otto.
