ABOUT THE PLANT
A relatively small evergreen tree, this variety of Orange tree is native to China yet is now widely cultivated in North America and the Mediterranean regions of Spain, Italy and France.
ABOUT THE OIL
Sweet Orange essential oil is the oil produced from the fruit of the orange tree - Other 'orange' essential oils are from the bitter orange tree: Petitgrain oil is produced from the leaves, Neroli oil from the blossoms, and Bergamot is pressed from the peels.
Sweet Orange essential oil is brightly fragrant, uplifting for the mind and the emotions. Orange oil is lovely when adding a sweet, citrus note to your blend. It harmonizes particularly well with spice oils such as Clove, floral oils such as Lavender and musk-like aromatics such as that of Frankincense.
Orange essential oil has been used for its calming, sedative effects and its anti-inflammatory, antitumoral, and anticoagulant actions. In Chinese medicine the dried sweet orange peel is used to treat coughs, colds, anorexia and malignant breast sores.
