Along with its bright, sweet scent, orange essential oil can help you express creativity and bring joyous moments into your home. Find out all the Orange oil life hacks here!
1. 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 by massaging Orange essential oil on tender areas.
2. Sweeten your breakfast. Add a few drops of Orange Vitality™ to your waffle batter or french toast mix to wake up your taste buds.
3. Get your glow on. Did you know Orange can give you smooth-looking skin? It’s great to apply on oily areas, so be sure to add this gem into your skin care products. Remember, this oil is photosensitive, so only apply it topically at night and stay out of the sun for 12 hours after use.*
4. Wear a citrus scent. Orange smells like the sweetness of early spring, so why not take that aroma with you wherever you go? Apply 1 drop each of Lavender and Orange to your wrists and temples for a calming and uplifting aroma.*
5. Keep the Christmas Spirit in your heart. Orange is a supporting ingredient in most winter holiday blends, including Christmas Spirit. Keep this oil on hand in case you want a Christmas in July.
6. Smile from the inside. Add 1-2 drops of Orange Vitality™ to a clear vegetable capsule and ingest to enjoy its cleansing benefits for your digestive system.**
7. Remove your makeup the natural way. No need to make your face suffer through makeup remover’s harsh chemicals when a bottle of Orange essential oil is an arm’s reach away. Clean your face and fight blemishes with a combo of carrier oil and Orange. Add 4 drops of fractionated coconut oil and 1 drop of Orange oil to a cotton ball at night. Use to remove any trace of makeup. Make sure to avoid the eye area when using Orange oil.
8. Inhale a clean burst of citrus. Purify the air and eliminate odors by simply diffusing Orange on its own.
9. Pep up your Thieves cleaner. Thieves® Household Cleaner is a staple for everything, from dusting doorknobs to scrubbing sinks. Add some zesty sweetness to your cleaner with a few drops of Orange.
10. Invite Peace & Calming in your life. As one of the key players in Peace & Calming® and Peace & Calming II, Orange lends its happy aroma to these gentle blends.
11. Create your breath freshener. Put 1 drop each of Orange and Spearmint in 1 tablespoon of water, then swish and gargle for fresh breath.
12. Sip on a healthy smoothie. Drink antioxidants first thing in the morning. Add a few drops of Orange Vitality™ to your green smoothie for a bright, citrus flavor.
13. Get rid of gunk! Greasy stovetop? Sticker residue? Gum on your shoe? Orange will help you get rid of it!
14. Brighten your day with a happy diffuser blend! This one’s called Liquid Sunshine!
