I absolutely love sweet orange essential oil when I’m down! This is a wonderfully sweet, uplifting scent that always brightens my day. Not only that, but it clears any yucky odors from the air like a dream . . . not that I’ve ever burned the roast . . . to a crisp . . . and all the veggies with it. Yes. Yes, I have, and sweet orange essential oil made a huge difference. That’s saying something because my house was full of smoke from the waist up. We did have to open windows to let the smoke out, but diffusing sweet orange took care of lingering odor perfectly. I just wish I’d had it that time I managed to burn boiled eggs . . . . but I digress.
Back to sweet orange. Because of it’s disinfecting properties, this oil is often used as an air purifier during times of seasonal illness. I know that we do whatever we can to ward off someone else’s yuckies in our house and sweet orange fills that bill. It’s also the major oil in my all-purpose green cleanser. I add other oils as needed (tea tree, thyme) but by and far, I use this oil more than any other. I prefer it’s scent over lemon, so I use it instead of lemon for the cleanser. A few drops added to my mop bucket is great for a fresh, clean floor (and a little aromatherapy as I mop).
Better yet, I mix a number of citrus oils together for a bathroom spray. It tackles that smell better than any synthetic air freshener I’ve ever purchased. I’m telling you, it’s fantastic — and it doesn’t leave my head pounding when someone over-sprays like store-bought air fresheners do.
Although it’s known for uplifting, I can add it and lavender to my diffuser at night and it doesn’t keep me awake. I call it my “Sweet Dreams” blend: 3 drops lavender and 2 drops sweet orange. Other great diffuser ideas include: 3 drops sweet orange and 1 drop cinnamon (or clove or cassia), 3 drops sweet orange and 1 drop peppermint (or spearmint <–use if you have children under 6), 3 drops sweet orange and 2 drops Siberian Fir (or Douglas Fir).
You will hear many people tell you that orange essential oil is phototoxic. Tisserand and Young make no such statements about this particular oil, although some orange oils are. Be sure you know which one you’re using before you go out in sunlight. This sweet orange has no warnings about UV rays.
With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in fractionated coconut oil.
Sweet Orange Essential Oil Safety Info
