Sweet Orange Essential Oil
Summertime Essential Oil Series
Sweet Orange AKA Orange Essential Oil
Latin Name = Citrus sinensis
Sweet Orange essential is so refreshing, I adore it! It is one of my “go to” oils!
It is a top note oil, warm, refreshing and citrusy.
Orange essential oil is very gentle and so it is a great oil to use in children’s blends.
Why do I love it?
One of it’s best-known traits is the way it is instantly uplifting and makes you feel lighter and happy.
It is an anti-inflammatory, anticoagulant, a sedative, and an anti-depressant just to list a few of its active qualities.

- helps infections
- supporting digestive issues
- synergies for children’s blends
- household cleaning
- mood lifter and optimistic booster

Whew, what a long list!
Sweet Orange is like a best friend, always willing to give you comfort!
Organic is always a good path to take in my opinion when you can afford it however, this is one oil that I recommend you purchase organic. Pesticides are sprayed on the orange and it is the outside peels that are cold pressed to make the essential oil.
Products we like to use!
Orange Sweet Organic Essential Oil 10 mL @ Plant Therapy
Do not use directly on your skin, always dilute it when using topically. It is a skin irritant.
Orange Essential Oil is my HAPPY PLACE!
