Sweet orange essential oil

This oil has a sweet, zesty and refreshing aroma.
The orange tree is native to China and India and is now also found in many places around the world.

The extraction
Sweet orange essential oil is a fruity, tangy oil, extracted from the peel of orange fruits by mechanical cold pressing, to maintain the integrity of the active ingredients and for maximum yield.
Affects
Sweet orange is renowned for uplifting the emotions, calming nervous digestion, and encourages the elimination of toxins by stimulating the lymphatic system. It is used in aromatherapy to promote happiness and warmth and to relieve tiredness and listlessness.
On topical application, sweet orange aids in the absorption of Vitamin C, which is linked to collagen formation and the support of the skin’s natural integrity.
History
The orange tree was introduced into Europe in the 16 or 17th Century, possibly by the Crusaders.
Interesting fact: Whilst sweet orange is the oil extracted from the peel, the orange flowers give us neroli and the orange leaves give us petitgrain.

Chemical constituents: Nerol (Alcohol), Citral (Aldehyde), Limonene (Terpene), Methyl anthranilate (Ester).

Blending
Sweet orange essential oil blends well with black pepper, frankincense, geranium, clary sage,
coriander, lavender, may chang, rose otto.
