This essential oil is cold-pressed from the ripe, or almost ripe, peel of the orange creating a gorgeous, full, fresh, sweet aromatic profile! With a rich yellow to dark orange color, this essential oil has a personality profile that is refreshing, joyful, sensual, and full of warmth.
Among is many uses, Orange Essential Oil is one of the best choices to use in a blend for digestive support as it helps to reduce constipation, gas, abdominal spasms, nausea, and vomiting. It is a hepatic stimulant, supporting the liver to produce bile, and which again helps support healthy digestion.
Apply Orange by itself (in a carrier) or in a blend and rub right on to the stomach. It has also been shown beneficial when used to help reduce the pain and spasms from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
As Orange is such a bright uplifting oil, it is useful to add to any blend when you want a fresh, cheerful note!
It is also an excellent oil to use with a diffuser as it brightens the room and helps to cleanse the air from potential germs.

Non-toxic, though it may cause skin irritation. Use in low dilution (1-2%) when applying to the skin, such as in bath or massage oils. Older, oxidized oils increase potential for skin irritation. It's best to buy citrus oils from organically grown fruit, as citrus trees are heavily sprayed. The citrus oils are cold-pressed, and the pesticides come through the process and are found in the oils. Sweet Orange is not phototoxic.
The suggested shelf life is 1-2 years.
