We love our Sweet Orange items and with our Sweet Orange Gift Box being one of our absolute best selling items, we think you do you to! But there is more to orange essential oil than being beautifully scented.
1. Skin Issues: Anti-aging, reduces inflammation and protects the skin
Orange oil can quickly and effectively relieve inflammation and muscle or joint pain. This benefit of orange oil is one factor in its success in aromatherapy. The properties of the oil inhibits microbial growth as well as disinfecting small wounds. High levels of vitamin C help protect and heal the skin. Furthermore, it slows the rate of skin damage from pollutants and UV rays. Orange essential oil is incredibly beneficial for fighting signs of ageing such as wrinkles and dark spots. This is due to the oils promotion of production of collagen in the skin.
2. Aromatherapy: Energising and Calming
Orange essential oil is often used in aromatherapy as it has calming and energising properties. The essential oil lifts moods and also acts as a perfect alternative to lavender for those who suffer depression or anxiety. Research has even shown the oil can help to reduce pulse rates, calming you down after a stressful day. It contains the soothing agent linalool that helps relieve tension and stress.
4. Aids digestion: Reduces cramps and bloating
When ingested or soothed over the stomach area, orange oil can aid digestion by reducing bloating and easing cramps or constipation. It also helps draw out toxins and waste in the digestive tract.
