4. Get your Glow On — Orange Essential Oil is Great for Skin!

Did you know, Orange essential oil is particularly great for those in search of youthful-looking skin? It’s good to apply on oily areas too, so be sure to add this gem into your daily skincare routine. However, as this oil is photosensitive, be sure to use Orange oil as part of your nighttime routine so you can stay out of the sun for at least 12 hours after use.

5. Remove Your Make-Up the Natural Way

No need to make your face suffer through the harsh chemicals that are often included in over-the-counter make-up removers when a bottle of Orange essential oil is an arm’s reach away. Clean your face and encourage radiant-looking skin by combining a few drops of Orange essential oil with your favourite carrier oil. Just be careful not to get the oil near your eyes!

6. Wear A Citrus Scent

Whatever the season, Orange essential oil brings a beautifully sweet fragrance, so why not enjoy that gorgeous aroma wherever you go by using Orange essential oil to create a signature perfume? Apply one drop each of Lavender and Orange to your wrists and temples for a calming and uplifting aroma.

7. Massage Muscles and Joints

It’s no secret that physical activity is good for your health, but sometimes strenuous workouts can make your muscles strain and cramp. Give them some love and massage Orange essential oil into tender areas.

8. Enjoy A Clean Burst of Citrus

Orange essential oil can transform your day clean and cheerful scent. Try mixing a few drops with distilled water in a spray bottle and spritz over your body for a refreshing and uplifting spray.

9. Pep Up Your Thieves® Household Cleaner

At Young Living, our Thieves® Household Cleaner is a staple for everything, from dusting doorknobs to scrubbing sinks. Add an extra zesty sweetness to your cleaner with a few drops of Orange essential oil and enjoy its delightful aroma when combined with our exceptional Thieves® blend.
