Orange-The one oil I would take if I was stranded on a desert island.  There are so many things to love about orange oil.  Read on to find out some of mine.

 

Emotional Support

Orange oil might not be the first oil to come to your mind when looking to support your emotions, but it’s a powerful tool in this area. The scent helps by uplifting and promoting a positive attitude, while calming the spirit. It also has a direct effect on the olfactory system of the brain that quickly evokes emotional responses. It’s a great essential oil for balancing hormones since it can help turn off reactions from stress hormones like cortisol.  To use, apply to the skin in a carrier oil on the wrists or over the heart, or diffuse to uplift.  This oil is especially powerful when combined with other relaxing and grounding oils such as lavender, cedarwood, or frankincense.

 

Cleaning

Much like lemon oil, orange oil has wonderful cleaning powers and leaves your home smelling fresh and sweet! Orange is especially powerful on wood surfaces, I often add a few drops to my dusting rag before dusting wood furniture or shining wood floors.

 

Personal Care

Orange can make your teeth sparkle! No, I’m serious!  One daily drop of Orange oil on your toothbrush with your regular toothpaste will make for a bright, white smile.

One drop behind my ears, by itself or combined with a floral scent such as Joy Blend, makes an easy perfume that is toxin free and lifts the spirits of everyone who smells it!
