Emotional And Energetic Properties Of Sweet Orange Essential Oil

Orange essential oil is sunshine in a bottle. Dispersing sadness, it reminds us just how good life can be.

Orange oil is a kindly friend, encouraging you to let go of self-judgement.

It has an innate way of reminding you of how beautiful you are…. Even on days you don’t feel it.

Just one drop of orange essential oil in your face cream brings a beautiful bloom to the skin. Somehow, this inner smile shines through your aura and is completely irresistible to people around you.

There is something strange and enigmatic about the relationship between the smell of an orange and the juiciness you feel in your mouth. Seductive and inviting, it is enchanting and inexplicable.

Vibrating on the colour orange, naturally it has close associations with the sacral chakra.

Emotionally, the sacral chakra is very much linked to volatility. So, this is a useful essential oil to use for anyone who seems to have inexplicable explosive tantrums (like teenagers!).

The sacral chakra too, relates to attachment issues. So, sweet orange is a lovely essential oil to use in a diffuser around children who suffer from separation anxiety (and blends well with Palma Rosa which has similar attributes).

The other side of the coin here, is people who struggle to commit and have trust issues. Orange oil works extremely well (again through the sacral chakra) and it can be aided by Rose’s beneficial action on the heart chakra.  

There are many people in this world who suffer from hypersensitivity issues. Autistic children react to hyperstimulation; empathic people find noise and energy simply too much; some people develop fierce allergies; others react over emotionally to situations going on around them.  

If hypersensitivity is a watchword, then orange essential oil is probably going to be helpful.

A person’s inner confidence shines through when they have used orange oil.

It’s irresistible to feel that strange joy perpetuating through your body. For many of us, that sizzle of excitement may be something we haven’t felt since we were very small children.

It’s sprightly, uplifting, and merry.  

Orange essential oil is unusual because it’s relaxing and uplifting at the same time.

It’s like a new broom sweeps clean.  

Suddenly worries and sadness soften and happiness radiates through. You can’t exactly explain why, you just seem to feel much better.

Orange essential oil seems to make it easy to let go of the irritations you have with yourself. While it’s not particularly an essential oil that helps you forgive, it does help you just let go and release worries and annoyances into the breeze.

It’s fair to say that most people adore orange essential oil. It’s a universal elixir of joy. Easy to use and completely beguiling.

Our Commitment To Quality

Every batch of sweet orange oil we receive is tested for purity and quality. Each batch of essential oil can differ, even from the same producer. Because essential oil is extracted from plants, it can be affected by many factors such as the weather, the seasons, and human error... a bit like fine wine.

This is why we carry out batch testing even if the batch is from the same supplier so we can guarantee consistent quality.

The farms we’ve chosen to work with consistently provide incredibly pure, high quality oils. We regularly review our producers with a stringent set of quality guidelines that we’ve developed in partnership with our industry experts and their 20+ years in the industry.

“Even an oil which is quite truthfully described as pure may be of poor quality, and therefore of less value therapeutically. IF AN ESSENTIAL OIL COSTS MUCH LESS THAN YOU WOULD NORMALLY EXPECT TO PAY FOR IT, the oil may well be a third or fourth distillate from a batch of plant material which has already yielded the greater part of its properties to the first or second distillation.”


About The Cultivation

Our mission is to provide you with the purest essential oils that contain the therapeutic properties you need to support yours and your family’s health.

Sometimes this means the oil is certified organic but acquiring an organic certification can be quite costly to farmers, which means many choose not to obtain it. Oils derived from plants that are organically grown or wildcrafted are still free from man-made chemicals despite not being certified. This means the oils can be of equal or better quality than comparable certified organic products and often at a lower price.

We also try our best to source single origin essential oils wherever possible.


How We Package Our Sweet Orange Oil

Our sweet orange oil is fresh off the still and comes in a 10ML blue glass bottle and is sealed to protect the precious oil within. The bottle also comes with an orifice reducer built in so you can dispense the oil one drop at a time.

During the shipping process, special canisters prolong and protect the quality of the oil from light and temperature during transit from around the globe and we ensure a quick turnaround time from producer to bottle, with minimal shelf time to maintain quality and purity.

We typically recommend storing your oil at or below room temperature in a cool dark place.


The Tests We Run On Our Oils To Ensure Quality

All of our oil is constantly tested for purity. The testing provides us with key data about what constituent compounds are in the oils and at what volumes.

Gas Chromatography (GC)

Gas Chromatography (GC) describes the analytical separation technique used to analyze volatile substances in the gas phase. In GC, the components of a sample are dissolved in a solvent and vaporized in order to separate the analytes by distributing the sample between two phases: a stationary phase and a mobile phase. GC provides us key data about what compounds are in oils and how much of each component is present.

Mass Spectrometry (MS)

Mass Spectrometry (MS) is an analytical chemistry technique that identifies the amount and type of individual molecules present in a sample by measuring the mass-to-charge ratio. A mass spectrometer has three essential functions: Ion source, Mass analyzer and the Detector. The Ion source is where the sample is ionized. Once the sample is ionized, the mass analyzer sorts and separates the ions according to the mass and charge. Once the ions are separated and sorted then the separation is measured in the detector where a results chart is displayed.

A personal message from our founders

Ultimately we believe that an oil, like the business that stands behind it, should be ethical and be exactly what it says on the tin. That’s why we only use the highest quality oranges, with the highest quality extraction methods, and shipped with the highest quality packaging.

It’s also why you won’t see us throwing around buzzwords that don’t mean anything, like “therapeutic grade” or “clinical grade.” When we describe our oils, we mean what we say.

We believe that the more you know about essential oils in general, the more likely you’ll want to become a part of the Sacred Soul community.

If for any reason you’re unsatisfied with our oil, I want to personally invite you to email me and let me know. I’ll be happy to refund your money within the first 90 days of your purchase.

I’m betting my business on the fact that you’ll be blown away by the quality and aroma of our sweet orange essential oil.

Either way, thanks for stopping by our site and checking us out. We hope every interaction you have with us, in person, or online is positive and memorable. Feel free to drop us a note on our contact page if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback for us.

Sincerely,

Dilution Guide

IMPORTANT:

This guide is a general overview for oils that don't have a more restricted dermal recommendation and are considered safe for topical use with adults age 16+. It also doesn't account for any specific medical issues, medication or skin conditions. You should check with a medical professional or aromatherapist before use. Below are not recommended dosages. Never apply undiluted to the skin.

ALWAYS check the max dermal use for the individual oil/s or blend you plan to use. You should also consider your medical and skin conditions and take the advice of a qualified professional. Serious negative effects such as skin sensitization, irritation, burns and other issues could occur from misusing essential oils and products containing essential oils.

Patch test: For first time use, place a drop of diluted essential oil on a small area of skin such as the inside elbow. After application, be aware of adverse reactions for the first 24-48 hours.

 


General Use

See below for approximate dilution ratios and usage guidelines. These are NOT recommended dosages and you should always consult with a medical professional or qualified aromatherapist before use.

Always start with a low dilution.

  • 0.5% - 1% = facial, long term daily use or full body application
  • 2% = generally good for regular use
  • 3% = for specific localised concerns
  • 5% = short term specific concerns (max 2 weeks)
  • 10% = acute specific concerns

When measuring in 'drops', just be aware that the only way for true accuracy is to measure your drops using a digital scale because different oils can amount to a slightly different number of drops per ml. The orifice reducer in the bottle is also not a standard size so could differ between brands, which could affect the size of ‘a drop’ and therefore your dilution %. This table is intended as an approximate guide only.

Can it be used internally?

As a brand, we have taken the position that essential oils are for external use only and should not be taken internally. We therefore will never state that any essential oil is food grade as this indicates that it is fit for human consumption.

Can it be used in a diffuser/oil burner?

Yes it can! :)

Can you use direct on the skin?

No we never recommend that any essential oil is used direct on the skin. Always dilute with a carrier, even when using in the bath.

Is it antibacterial (or any other medicinal property)?

Due to legal restrictions, we are not allowed to make any medicinal claims about essential oils and their properties, even if there is scientific evidence that supports the claim.

Is it certified organic?

In the additional details section on the product page, you will see the cultivation listed in the attributes. It will state ‘certified organic’ and the program under which certification was obtained if the oil is certified organic.

Sometimes an oil will be derived from plants that have been organically grown but the producer doesn’t have organic certification (organic certification comes with a price that many producers choose not to obtain). This doesn’t mean the oil is of a lower quality and in fact the opposite can be true. The cultivation will state ‘organically grown’ if this is the case.

Wild-crafted/wild-harvested means that the plants have been harvested from the wild rather than a plantation.

Is it therapeutic grade?

Therapeutic grade is a term created to assist with marketing. There isn’t an official industry standard for therapeutic grade so we refuse to use this term.

Can it be used in a steam room or sauna?

Technically yes but if it is a public steam room or sauna then NO, because you don’t know the people sharing the steam room with you.

These people could be suffering from health issues or taking certain medication and using essential oils in the steam room with these people could cause unwanted negative and potentially serious effects.

Can it be used for massage?

Yes it can but always diluted with a carrier.

Learn More About Sweet Orange Essential Oil

The orange is the most cultivated fruit tree in the world with over 70 million tonnes grown annually worldwide in 2014.

Mentioned in Chinese literature as early as 347 BC, it’s likely that the orange originated in China. A hybrid of a pomelo and a mandarin, the sweet orange should be carefully distinguished from the bitter orange, Citrus aurantium.

Growing in moderate climates, an orange requires huge amounts of sunshine to ripen. It’s almost as if the sun’s rays are trapped within the oil and then given back to us as we inhale it.
