Orange is a favourite for diffusion and aromatic uses. Its sweet and uplifting scent brings feelings of inspiration and joy.
Orange essential oil, cold-pressed from the rinds of oranges, has a juicy aroma reminiscent of the fresh fruit. It has a clean, refreshing scent and flavour and contains the naturally occurring constituent limonene. Orange oil offers a sweet, peaceful aroma that can fill a room with a sense of peace, harmony, and creativity.
Orange, like other citrus oils, can cause photosensitivity, so avoid applying it to exposed skin before spending time out in the sun. Orange is delightful on its own, or you can combine it with complementary oils such as Lemon, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Cinnamon, Neroli, or Patchouli.
Embrace the versatility of Orange essential oil as a culinary tool by using it in your cooking to brighten up or complement dishes with its citrus flavour. Use it in baked goods for an acidic contrast to the sweetness of desserts and baked goods.
