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

*Allergens

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.

Sweet Orange Oil is a Top Note Oil and is known for its Happy Charm!

to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix
this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
With thanks!
