SWEET ORANGE OIL Aromatherapy Essential “Oil of the Month”

Learn the Science behind Sweet Orange Oil

This very popular Essential oil has a sweet citrusy aroma. The oil comes from the rind of the Orange by cold press.

Botanical Name: Citrus Sinensis

Although the Orange originated from China, Australia has the forth largest citrus industry in the Southern Hemisphere and Oranges are the most important crop. But even though the crops are large the output of oil is quite small compared to other countries. (Lets back our Australian Orange Oil produces) Victoria and South Australia being the major production centres.

Constituents of Orange Oil: *Limonene, Myrcene + Octanal, a Pinene, Sabinene, *Linalool


Limonene being the main component of Sweet Orange Oil, is responsible for stimulating and uplifting the senses easing nervous tension and anxiety. It can support the immune system by strengthening it and be an apatite suppressant.

Limonene also is a major constituent in cleaning products because it acts as a solvent and can reduce the presence of bacteria neutralising odours of stale rooms.

So this constituent can also bring us to skin care by reducing bacteria and free-radicals and cleansing the skin to help with inflammation. Great for oily skin types to help balance sebum. It can also help with inflammation in muscles and bones with use of massage oil.

Although great for the skin, it can also be a skin irritant in some if over exposure occurs. Essential Oils should always be diluted to apply topically and a skin patch test is recommended. SKIN PATCH TESTING – RAINBOW SKYS NATURALLY

Myrcene being the second main constituent in Sweet Orange Oil is responsible for relaxing the mind and assisting in falling asleep.

Myrcene like Limonene can assist with inflammation in muscles and bones and can help with pain relief and reducing free-radicals.

100% Natural is Our Aim

100% – When we first started out 100% natural was our number one aim. Although 99.9% of our products are natural, (safety of our customers is most important) the other 0.1% is due to our colours.

Our colours are a mimic of nature the safer way. “Natural Identical,” meaning they have the same molecules as in nature but are made in a lab for your safety.

You see, cosmetics were once coloured from oxides collected from the earth but many of these contained heavy metals. If it is mined from the earth, the potential exists for lead, arsenic and mercury among others. So only lab produced oxides are approves for use in the cosmetic industry by the FDA.

Lab produced pigmented oxides have the same chemical composition as the original oxides, only all the impurities have been removed. The process is different, the end result on a molecular level is the same.

Some of our soaps have pigmented oxides and are only made with your safety in mine. Each product has an ingredients list included.

This way we can still enjoy the colours of the rainbow while still being close to nature! Safely!
