On a crowded bus, in a classroom, at a busy office…no matter where you are, when an orange is peeled, the sweet, tangy scent of the oil released into the air seems to travel extraordinary lengths, piquing the senses of all within asking distance who desire, “Can I have a slice?”
Orange essential oil, cold pressed from the peel of the orange, is a delight both to smell and to use. It mixes well with multiple essential oils and has a variety of easy applications.
Cleaning: Part of the power of Orange Essential Oil comes from D-Limonene – a constituent of the oil -- which works as a mild solvent. This makes for an excellent, natural grease-cutter and cleanser in homemade cleaning recipes.
Got termites? These guys have effectively been cleared out of houses using Orange Essential Oil. Again, the D-Limonene is the star of this show, killing termites by causing exoskeleton damage. And the additional benefits: No one has to leave the house! Orange oil has no toxic fumes or residues to worry about.
Not only does D-limonene in orange oil kill some insects, but it repels others. A homemade pesticide to spray on any garden plants should not contain more than 2 oz. Orange Essential Oil to one gallon of water. This should be used carefully and sparingly on plants as over-use can burn the plants! Also, putting a drop or two of orange oil on cotton balls and placing them in a pantry or cupboard that insects frequent can help to keep the area insect-free.
Orange Essential Oil can be used in each load of laundry you do, giving it a wonderful, bright smell. This will also allow you to cut back on your detergent as the solvent in orange oil goes to work as an effective cleaner.
Orange oil has anti-depressant properties that make it an excellent choice for diffusing into the home or spritzing into the air. For a spritz, mix about 10 drops of Orange Essential Oil into a spray bottle with water. Because of its great blending capacity, a variety of “aroma recipes” can be tried for different seasons or moods. Mix each blend for a diffuser or put into a spray bottle with water.
