Orange (Bitter) Essential Oil
Associated with prosperity, oranges have been used medicinally for hundreds of years. Able to lift spirits and relieve anxiety, orange oil is considered a brightening, bettering oil that contributes to overall wellness. Like other citrus oils, orange oil is an excellent cleaning agent and is often used in homemade cleaning sprays. Bitter orange oil has also been used to soothe aches and pains in muscles and joints.
Our 100% Pure Orange (Bitter) Essential Oil has a sharp, vibrant scent and is orange to yellow in colour. Extracted from a slightly different fruit species than sweet orange oil, it is considered the more phototoxic of the two and so is not recommended for topical application. This oil is cold-pressed from the peel of the bitter orange.
