Scented Saturdays #3 - Orange
This week we are going to talk a bit about Orange oil which happens to be an excellent oil for the beginner and mixes well with almost all the other oils!
The oil is actually cold pressed from the peel of the orange.
A pleasing and uplifting smell, orange oil can raise a persons spirits and energize them.
Orange oil is used in many furniture polish products because it is effective at revitalizing the wood.
For cellulite, mix 2-3 drops of orange oil into a carrier oil and massage into the area.
To inspire creativity mix 2-3 drops in a diffuser. I would go as far as adding an additional scent that personally pleases you. I make a mix of orange and patchouli oils.
For gingivitis and mouth ulcers mix 2-3 drops with water in a glass, swish around in your mouth and spit.
There are MANY uses for orange oil... it can also be used for:
Blemishes, bronchitis, chills, chronic fatigue, colds, constipation, coughs, depression and many more!
