Orange is an excellent remedy to alleviate nausea or morning sickness. Orange essential oil brings peace and happiness to the mind and body and joy to the heart. It provides emotional support to overcome sadness and courage to escape emotional and physical abuse. This oil reestablishes optimism and a sense of humor when they have become lost through abuse or sadness. A great oil to clean up anything sticky like gum and sticker residue.
Which Orange should I choose?
All of the Orange oils have the same therapeutic properties and can be used interchangably. Orange Blood, Orange Sweet, and Orange Sweet Dark are all from Citrus sinensis. Orange Sweet is the most common and the most inexpensive. The aroma of Orange Blood is a bit brighter and a bit more tart than Orange Sweet. Orange Sweet Dark differs from Orange Sweet only slightly. It is derived from the first pressing of the peels. Orange Bitter comes from Citrus auratium. This is the same tree that we get Neroli and Petitegrain from. It smells very similar to Orange Sweet but has an underying touch of tart bitterness reminiscent of grapefruit oil.
