Before I even begin to research this subject, I am going to take a wild guess that one of the uses for Orange essential oil will involve something to do with old antique wood furniture and a natural polish.
The reason I am guessing is, as a child, the wood would be cleaned with Orange Glow; and the smell was so pungent it bowled me over, and I had to leave the room – until the aroma of the orange was neutralized by flowing air moving through the house.
I am laughing right now. I found a Healthline Article and I quote:
“Orange essential oil has a variety of uses. These can include applications to: lift your mood or reduce stress, treat skin conditions such as acne, reduce pain or inflammation, relieve stomach upset, use as a natural household cleaner, add a pleasant scent to a room or to products like perfumes/cleaners, give flavor to a variety of foods and beverages. Although orange essential oil has many uses, it’s important to remember that many of them are supported through anecdotal evidence. This means that the benefits are related to personal experience instead of being backed by scientific research.” (Seladi-Schulman J., 2019)
The main uses for the oil are via: diffuser, spray, or topically as a massage oil. If you are going to administer a massage, PLEASE ENSURE TO ADD A CARRIER OIL – DO NOT APPLY UNDILUTED TO SKIN.
