Believed to be the legendary Golden Apples stolen by Heracles from the garden of Hesperides, oranges have always represented immortality. In the 17th century, they were not eaten, rather used exclusively as medicine, particularly to cure scurvy. Traditional Chinese medicine also used dried orange peels to stimulate the appetite.
Our Sweet Orange oil is sourced from South Africa, where the rind is cold pressed to produce this uplifting essential oil.
One of the best choices for treating digestive disorders, Sweet Orange is a brilliant stimulant and has strong stomachic as well as antispasmodic properties. Its antidepressant qualities are also commonly cited: emotional and energetic uses include combating pessimism and perfectionism, calming agitation, and unblocking stagnated ability.
