Sweet Orange (citrus aurantium) has a gentle, soft, sweet note. Emotionally uplifting and encourages feelings of joy. Good for stress and nervous tension. A good addition to blends for stimulating the digestive and lymphatic systems. Aroma Absolute's Sweet Orange is expressed, not distilled. Distilled orange oil is phototoxic and its use on the skin should be avoided in direct sunlight.
Aromatherapy/Home Use example:
To soothe restless sleep, add 1 drop Sweet Orange, 1 drop Lavender, and 1 drop Sandalwood to 200ml of water in a diffuser, in the bedroom.
Safety: There is no evidence to show that expressed sweet orange oil is phototoxic, but err on the side of caution anyway, as limonene may cause contact dermatitis in hypersensitive individuals.
