Orange essential oil can be used for a variety of applications that range from lifting mood and reducing stress to adding a fresh, citrusy aroma to a room. Research has shown that orange essential oil may have several benefits. Some examples include antimicrobial activity, pain relief, and anticancer properties.
When combined with a carrier oil, orange essential oils can be applied directly to the skin at a ratio of 1 to 2 drops of essential oil to 2 teaspoon of carrier oil. Orange essential oils can also be safely inhaled by sprinkling a few drops onto a cloth or tissue, or using an aromatherapy diffuser or vaporizer.
