Aroma
Sweet orange essential oil has a sweet, zesty and refreshing aroma.

The plant

The orange tree is native to China and India and is now also found throughout the Mediterranean region, Israel and the USA.

The extraction

Sweet orange essential oil is a fruity, tangy oil, extracted from the peel of orange fruits by mechanical cold pressing, to maintain the integrity of the active ingredients and for maximum yield.

Effects

Sweet orange is renowned for uplifting the emotions, calming nervous digestion, and encourages the elimination of toxins by stimulating the lymphatic system. It is used in aromatherapy to promote happiness and warmth and to relieve tiredness and listlessness.

On topical application, sweet orange aids in the absorption of Vitamin C, which is linked to collagen formation and the support of the skin’s natural integrity.


History

The orange tree was introduced into Europe in the 16 or 17th Century, possibly by the Crusaders.

Historical uses of the orange which are of course maintained today include the food industry, including the making of delicious marmalades, in perfumery and for making Curacao, the popular West Indian liqueur.


Interesting fact

Whilst sweet orange is the oil extracted from the peel, the orange flowers give us neroli and the orange leaves give us petitgrain.

Chemical constituents

Nerol (Alcohol), Citral (Aldehyde), Limonene (Terpene), Methyl anthranilate (Ester).

Blending

Sweet orange essential oil blends well with black pepper, frankincense, geranium, clary sage, coriander, lavender, may chang, rose otto.

We believe supplements and all wellbeing products should use high quality, effective ingredients.  We aim to sell products and choose brands that meet our personal standard for quality and ideally contain naturopathic and, where possible, organic ingredients.

The majority of our products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, however we do stock some products like fish oils, etc. which means our full range is not vegetarian. We clearly identify these in the product listings.

  

Choosing Quality Supplements

We always look for products containing very high quality ingredients with good bioavailability (how well a product is utilised by the body). 

All too often we see cheap supplements, which although they may have the required dosage of the active ingredients in terms of numbers listed, they may have a low bioavailability due to being more refined or combined with poor quality additional ingredients to form tablets, or even make them appear more appetising.

Additional ingredients in cheaper supplements are often unnecessary or impact the absorption of the supplement you take, so it is important not only to check the dosage of your chosen active ingredients, but also ensure any other ingredients are good for you, too.   It is the additional ingredients that can often contain allergens or make a product non-vegan, for example.
