Orange Oil Uses
You already know that I love using essential oils around our home and in certain beauty products. I appreciate their multipurpose functions and today I’m sharing some of my favorites uses with one of my favorite oils…sweet Orange Oil.
Sweet Orange Oil is different than the other citrus essential oils. It’s generally not considered phototoxic, so it can be used in beauty and skin products as long as you aren’t allergic. (Always test a small, diluted amount of essential oil on skin before using in a product.) Sometimes after you buy an essential oil you might use it once or twice and then wonder what to do with the rest of the bottle…those little bottles can go a long way! Here are some of my favorite Orange Oil uses.
I love putting Sweet Orange Essential Oil in many of my homemade cleaning products just because it smells so good, and because it has bactericidal properties. I personally love adding it to make simple Homemade Furniture Polish.
Since Sweet Orange Oil has a very uplifting scent, it can be added to homemade candles (like homemade Beeswax Candles) to make a sweet smelling, happy candle!
Sweet Orange Oil can be added into skin and beauty products so one fun thing to make with it is a homemade Sugar Scrub. Perfect little gift for someone that needs a pick me up!
Sweet Orange Oil can be great for cleaning tile (as is Lemon Essential Oil). Place a few drops on a wet rag, scrub onto tile stains and spots until clean.
Because Sweet Orange Oil has a scent that reminds you of clean, place a few drops in the bottom of your trash can to keep it smelling fresh and clean.
Add a few drops of Sweet Orange Essential Oil to your shampoo to energize your morning wash routine. Some friends that have tried this have also let me know that they have noticed smoother hair from doing this!
If you are looking for a wonderful source for oils, I highly recommend Rocky Mountain Oils. After careful consideration of all the companies selling essential oils, I’m happy to share that Rocky Mountain Oils has become my main source of oils for many different reasons.
