Wild Orange is cold-pressed right from the rind and has amazing citrus aroma and flavor. It is a favorite early in the morning to revitalize, uplift, and energy the body and mind. Wild Orange has antiseptic, tonic, and sedative properties that make it a great tool for fighting seasonal threats, protecting the environment, cleansing and purifying. Historically, oranges have been used to fight digestive issues, like diarrhea, prolapse, jaundice, bleeding, heartburn, and relaxing of the throat. The French have also used it to aid with insomnia, palpitation, cardiac spasm, dyspepsia, and menopause. As previously mentioned, it affects the Digestive and Immune System, but it also helps Emotional Balance and the Skin.
When diffused, Wild Orange fresh, sweet, and fruity aroma has an uplifting and calming effect. It can also be used topically, applying to reflex points or area of concern without being diluted. But due to photosensitivity, avoid direct sunlight for 12 hours after application. It can be taken internally through cooking, or placing 1-2 drops under the tongue, in capsules, or dilute one drop in 1 tsp honey or 4 oz of beverage.
Wild Orange enhances other oils it is blended with, like Cinnamon, Lavender, Frankincense, and Geranium. As a personifier, it helps therapeutically and has its own dominant properties.
