Welcome to our first weekly Essential Oil Spotlight! Each Wednesday, we’ll feature an essential oil to learn more about. This week, we begin with organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil (Citrus sinensis).
Yes, the winter season calls for citrus. These bright, sunny oils can be especially beneficial to people who are affected by seasonal affective disorder (SAD). In an article about Essential Oils and Seasonal Affective Disorder, Robert Tisserand suggests that Sweet Orange Essential Oil and other citrus oils may be “particularly effective for mood enhancement.”
Our Sweet Orange oil has a zesty and refreshing citrus scent that spreads a little sunshine on gloomy thoughts or when you just feel blah. This oil is reviving when feeling bored when when you have a lack of energy, which can happen for some people during the cold dead of winter. Sweet Orange is also great for banishing tension and stress. Its relaxing nature could be beneficial to insomnia brought on by anxiety.
At SunRose Aromatics, we have several diffuser blends that contain Sweet Orange, such as Ambiance, Happiness, and Joyful Joyful. However, why not try making your own blend? Try Sweet Orange with Lemon, Lavender, Geranium, or Bergamot, or just diffuse it on its own. Play with this happy oil to create your own fun and joyous blend.
Remember! If using Sweet Orange on the skin to dilute first – always dilute, please – and remember that citrus oils are phototoxic, so do not wear in the sun. Refer to our Dilution Charts for more information about dilution.
