Orange oil is often used for its uplifting properties and to help relieve nervousness and stress. It may help calm and increase focus by decreasing heart rate and increasing relaxation. The high concentration of vitamin C helps to boost the immune system, revive the body, and has beneficial effects on cholesterol. Orange oil may help relieve the symptoms of constipation, menstruation and persistent cough.
Orange oil and extracts should not be used on young children. Orange Essential Oil should be diluted before use.
