Orange (Sweet) Essential Oil
Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis) essential oil is a great choice for digestive issues such as gas, bloating, nausea, vomiting and constipation when applied topically and rubbed in a counter clockwise direction. It is especially effective with ginger or cardamom. Many of our regular customers have praised this oil for its fresh aroma. Sweet Orange is also emotionally uplifting when applied to any diffuser blend. It is not phototoxic like many other cold pressed citrus oils.
