Orange Blood Oil
Blood orange essential oil is bright, citrusy, sparkly, and sweet—just like a freshly peeled orange! Therapeutically, blood orange is very similar to sweet (and wild) orange, but its aroma is just a hint deeper. (Imagine an orange orchard at night!) A few popular uses of this sunny, warm oil are to inspire positive energy, and to soothe and settle the stomach. Our certified organic blood orange essential oil is cold pressed from red-fleshed blood orange fruits in sun-kissed Italian orchards.
Benefits and uses
The stunning, red-fleshed oranges of the Citrus sinensis tree create an essential oil with a deep citrus aroma that is sparkly, sweet, and slightly woodsy. Therapeutically, blood orange essential oil is very similar to our sweet orange essential oil. Its antibacterial, antiviral, and antiseptic properties make it a popular choice for hand soaps, body and face washes, and DIY household cleaners. We also like to use it in several of our favorite immune-supportive lotion blends. During cold and flu season blood orange is also great for adding to diffuser blends that can cleanse the air of unwanted germs and microbial activity.
Emotionally and energetically, blood orange essential oil can help unblock and circulate stagnant energy and give courage to those who are overwhelmed or reluctant to ask for help. It is a very uplifting essential oil that may help with combating situational depression.
