7 Ways to Benefit from Orange Essential Oil

The fragrant, cleansing aroma of oranges has been enjoyed for ages. Some people leave the rinds of oranges in the cars and houses for a natural deodorizer. While this method works just fine, it can get a little messy which is why many prefer to use an essential oil instead ( it is more versatile as well) .

Orange essential oil comes from the cells that are in the rind of orange fruit. This oil has numerous properties and can be used in all sorts of ways—from improving your mood to cleaning your toilet.

Use to clean—move over lemon, here comes orange!

  • Clean your toilets (and sinks, tubs, and showers, too! ) Since Orange is a natural disinfectant with antibacterial properties, mix the essential oil with vinegar and several drops of orange essential oil and scrub! Add baking soda, too, if you’d like. Another quick tip for a fresh toiler, is pouring a few drops into your toilet tank for more aroma!
  • Mix 10 drops of orange with 1 cup of water to wipe and disinfect kitchen counters, cutting boards, and your dining table. Dampen a sponge or rag to wipe down the areas or mix in a spray bottle and spray on surfaces before cleaning.

Improve mood, invigorate body and mind

  • Orange is uplifting and the essential oils is used in aromatherapy to lift your spirits. Orange has the ability to help you feel relaxed and alert and the same time. It’s sometimes used for depression, as it promotes well-being and a sense of happiness.
