Considered a symbol of good fortune in Chinese culture, it's no coincidence that Sweet Oranges and their essential oils have a wealth of benefits to offer.

Sweet Oranges originate from Southwest China and are in fact a natural cross between a Mandarin Orange and Pomelo, retaining characteristics of both fruits. They feature often in Traditional Chinese Medicine, especially using the dried peel to support healthy digestion and breathing.

Orange seeds eventually found their way around the world via trade routes and are now one of the most common fruit trees grown globally. The cheerful, warming aroma of Sweet Orange Essential Oil became popular in the 20th century and was used in products from detergent to deodorant due to its fresh citrusy smell and cleansing properties.

Like other citrus-origin essential oils, Sweet Orange Essential Oil is a natural astringent that clarifies congested and oily skin. Being rich in antioxidants, this oil also protects skin from environmental damage, such as pollution and free radicals.

The benefits of Sweet Orange Oil are more than skin deep - it’s also a natural anti-inflammatory that soothes swelling and may reduce pain caused by swollen tissue.

Every essential oil unit comes in an amber frosted glass bottle with an easy to use dropper and includes a batch number and best before date. The Certificate of Analysis (CoA) and Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) are available upon request.

Product FAQs

What’s the difference between Sweet Orange and Bitter Orange Essential Oils?

While these oils seem similar, they actually come from two different trees. Bitter Orange Oil is made from the rinds of the Citrus aurantium tree - these oranges are actually too bitter to eat and their use is often limited to preparing marmalades. 

The most important difference is that Bitter Orange Essential Oil is phototoxic while the Sweet Orange is not unless it is distilled.

Note: We use cold pressed method to extract our Sweet Orange Essential Oil and not steam distillation.

What makes up Sweet Orange Essential Oil?

Sweet Orange Essential Oil is made of a unique combination of compounds. One of the key components is Limonene - research has shown that Limonene is a potent antioxidant and can help support the body’s own natural detoxification processes. Some of the other components contained in Sweet Orange Oil that nurture and support overall well-being are: β- Myrcene, α-Pinene, Citronellol, Geraniol and Linalool.

What part of the fruit does Sweet Orange Essential Oil come from?

Unlike other essential oils that tend to come from the leaves of the plant, Sweet Orange Essential Oil comes from the rind. Have you ever peeled a Mandarin and noticed the small bursts of fragrance from its skin? Those are tiny pockets of essential oil that are being popped, releasing that fresh, citrusy fragrance.
