Common Uses: Properties for Orange Essential Oil are as follows: antidepressant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, aphrodisiac, carminative, cordial, deodorant, digestive, stimulant (nervous) and tonic (cardiac, circulatory). It has also been applied to combat colds, constipation, dull skin, flatulence, the flu, gums, slow digestion, and stress. Orange Essential Oil has a sweet, citrus smell much like the orange peels it is derived from, only more intense and concentrated. We would go so far as to say this oil is bubbly and juicy unlike any other. Cautions: It has been reported that contact dermatitis resulted from undiluted topical use in some people, which is why you should always dilute! Orange Essential Oil is considered photo-toxic and exposure to sunlight should be avoided for 12 hours after application.
