Sweet Orange
Citrus Sinensis

The essential oil of sweet orange — a nutritious fruit, high in vitamins A, B and C — is connected to the Sun. It stimulates the pineal gland, which is responsible for the production of melatonin (the hormone regulating the sleep-wake rhythm). Originally from India, it was imported by Arabs in the 9th century. It comes from the northern coast of Sicily.
The essential oil is obtained by cold-pressing the peel.

Sweet Orange

It opens your heart to the joys of life, giving rhythm to your day and putting your thoughts and tasks in order. It helps against insomnia, anxiety, and psychological fatigue in general. It prevents the flu, and is also useful in case of oral ulcerations and cellulite. Within a group, it facilitates socialization.

Suggested uses:

Home diffuser: add between 3 and 6 drops to 100 ml of water
Bathtub: emulsify 8-10 drops of essential oil with coarse salt — or alternatively milk, cream, or honey — to add to the hot water (so that the oil doesn’t evaporate due to the heat)
Massages: we recommend to dilute 3-5 drops of essential oil in a tablespoon of carrier oil
Cosmetic use: add 3-5 drops of essential oil to one tablespoon of natural moisturizer
Food: we recommend 3-4 drops per 100 gr of food, to add after cooking (we suggest to always start with the lower dose and then increase it later, if preferred).

Caution: do not use in case of chronic diseases, pregnancy, or when breastfeeding.
If in doubt, please consult your doctor/naturopath.
This essential oil can give sensitive reactions with sunlight. Be careful.
