Reasons to add Sweet Orange essential oil to your life

Posted by Jasmine Piliposyan on

When you think of oranges, the first thing that probably pops into your mind is the uplifting aroma, and how your mom would make you eat oranges when you had the flu for its rich Vitamin C content. You guessed it. Sweet Orange essential oil, also referred to as Orange essential oil, is a powerhouse oil that has a fresh, radiant and fruity aroma. You can use Sweet Orange in a variety of ways, and we list out some of the common methods of use below.

Digestive issues

If you experience an upset stomach or gas, Sweet Orange oil can be beneficial if applied topically to your abdominal area. Just add 3-4 drops to one tablespoon of carrier oil and gently rub on your abdomen to relax muscles and ease discomfort.

Uplift mood

Want to turn that frown upside down? Just add 5-10 drops of Sweet Orange oil in your diffuser and enjoy the bright, joyful aroma.

Sleeplessness

Sleeplessness is huge nowadays, especially among millennials, factoring in busy schedules, stress and anxiety. For a restful night’s sleep, add a few drops of Sweet Orange to a cotton ball or soft cloth and inhale before you go to bed. Its sweet, citrus aroma can help calm anxiety and nerves.

Revitalize skin

Sweet Orange boosts a generous Vitamin C content, which is needed to heal and protect the skin. The best part: Sweet Orange oil comes from the peel of the orange, meaning it carries an even higher Vitamin C content! Score. Add 3-4 drops to a carrier oil of your choice and apply to skin directly.

Lower blood pressure

Sweet Orange oil is recognized as a natural remedy for high blood pressure. It is best known to improve blood flow and fight hypertension, which are arguably the greatest contributing factors of heart disease. In fact, a 2014 study found that in a group of people who inhaled fresh air versus Sweet Orange, those who inhaled the essential oil experienced reduced diastolic and systolic blood pressure.
