Check out this Practical Use for Orange Essential Oil
On a crowded bus, in a classroom, at a busy office…no matter where you are, when an orange is peeled, the sweet, tangy scent of the oil released into the air seems to travel extraordinary lengths, piquing the senses of all within asking distance who desire, “Can I have a slice?”
Orange essential oil, cold pressed from the peel of the orange, is a delight both to smell and to use. It mixes well with multiple essential oils and has a variety of easy applications.
Cleaning: Part of the power of Orange Essential Oil comes from D-Limonene – a constituent of the oil -- which works as a mild solvent. This makes for an excellent, natural grease-cutter and cleanser in homemade cleaning recipes.
Got termites? These guys have effectively been cleared out of houses using Orange Essential Oil. Again, the D-Limonene is the star of this show, killing termites by causing exoskeleton damage. And the additional benefits: No one has to leave the house! Orange oil has no toxic fumes or residues to worry about.
Not only does D-limonene in orange oil kill some insects, but it repels others. A homemade pesticide to spray on any garden plants should not contain more than 2 oz. Orange Essential Oil to one gallon of water. This should be used carefully and sparingly on plants as over-use can burn the plants! Also, putting a drop or two of orange oil on cotton balls and placing them in a pantry or cupboard that insects frequent can help to keep the area insect-free.
Orange Essential Oil can be used in each load of laundry you do, giving it a wonderful, bright smell. This will also allow you to cut back on your detergent as the solvent in orange oil goes to work as an effective cleaner.
Orange oil has mood uplifting properties that make it an excellent choice for diffusing into the home or spritzing into the air. For a spritz, mix about 10 drops of Orange Essential Oil into a spray bottle with water. Because of its great blending capacity, a variety of “aroma recipes” can be tried for different seasons or moods. Mix each blend for a diffuser or put into a spray bottle with water.

I love the fragrance of this oil. I use it mainly to diffuse. However, a friend of mine suggested adding it to my toothpaste to help clean and whiten my teeth. It has made a huge difference. The first time I used it in my toothpaste, my teeth felt as clean as they do after I've been to the dentist for a cleaning. I might add that I have sensitive spots on my teeth. Not only has the oil not bothered those places, they've become less sensitive.
"Fresh and sweet are the words I would use to describe this oil. It has the deep color that one would expect orange oil to have. The label tells me it's cold-pressed which I like, since I always like to know how each essential oil was made."
How do your essential oils compare to the very popular "home party" ones?
What oil do you dilute the blends?

We believe our essential oils are of top quality and we post the GC/MS test results for each batch to back it up. Show them to your aromatherapist and see what they say. Most "home party" or network marketing oil companies won't release their GC/MS test results, and it kinda leaves you wondering "why?" When independent testing has been done, unfortunately the popular companies have not been blemish free. That's not to say it couldn't happen to any company on occasion, but I remember one case where one of the biggest companies was caught putting a synthetic into their peppermint oil to make it smell sweeter. That doesn't get in their by accident. So, be careful, and try not to only get your information from somebody who has a financial interest in you buying their oils - even us. Nobody knows everything and nobody is perfect despite what they might like to project. But we try to get the best, for a reasonable price.
