Aromatherapy with orange essential oil is a wonderfully healing self-care practice that only takes two minutes and adds a ton of brightness to your day! Use it after waking up to jumpstart your morning, before or after physical activity, after eating to aid digestion, or whenever you need a mid-day wake up call.

Orange Essential Oil

The sweet, refreshing fragrance of orange brings immediate feelings of wellbeing and happiness. It also supports healthy immune function and helps alleviate nausea. The oil is made of cold-pressed rinds of the fruit (about 75 oranges to make one 15 ml bottle) creating a potent dose of natural anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial compounds and powerful antioxidants.
