EO Spotlight - 21+ Ways Orange May Benefit You!

 

 

Orange, Sweet Orange or Wild Orange (Citrus sinensis) has a beautiful fresh, fruity, light, cheerful, and uplifting scent.  It is a peel oil, cold pressed, and considered a top note.

 

According to wikipedia.com "Orange oil is an essential oil produced by cells within the rind of an orange fruit (Citrus sinensis fruit). In contrast to most essential oils, it is extracted as a by-product of orange juice production by centrifugation, producing a cold-pressed oil.  Orange oil is used as a cleaner."

 

According to pubmed.com, in a study dated, October 31, 2017, Does the Fragrance of Essential Oils Alleviate the Fatigue Induced by Exercise?  "The results suggested that the inhalation of an essential oil mixture could powerfully relieve exercise-induced fatigue."

 

An article from pubmed.com, dated September 22, 2016 called The effect of inhalation of Citrus sinensis flowers and Mentha spicataleave essential oils on lung function and exercise performance, "Our findings support the effectiveness of M. spicata (peppermint) and C. sinensis essential oils on the exercise performance and respiratory function parameters."

 

In an article published on January, 2012, on the site pubmd.com, titled, Effectiveness of antimicrobial formulations for acne based on orange (Citrus sinensis) and sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum L) essential oils, "All groups reported an improvement of the acne condition, which ranged between 43% and 75% clearance of lesions. Evidence of treatment disappeared within minutes, showing little discomfort or side effects after application."  Please be careful applying any essential oil to the face.  Especially with basil and orange as some brands have been known to be phototoxic.  It is recommend not to exceed a 1% total dilution for the face which is 5-6 drops of essential oil per ounce of carrier oil.  Please do your own research to make sure there are no contraindications pertaining to your situation.
