Orange Essential Oil
Orange Essential Oil (citrus sinensis) is a soothing and uplifting oil with a sweet, citrus scent. It is commonly used as a diffuser oil to reduce tension, ease anxiety, and boost energy. These benefits can also be gained by adding a few drops of Essential Oil to water as a flavour enhancer. Remarkably, Orange oil is believed to be effective in reducing tumour growth and preventing the spread of cancer. Preliminary research suggests that d-limonene, one of the chemical components found in orange peels (and therefore Orange Essential Oil), can effectively inhibit the growth of cancer cells. Further research will determine the extent of Orange Essential Oil’s cancer-fighting capabilities. Additional uses of Orange Essential Oil include improving circulation, smoothing complexion, and soothing digestive discomforts.
