This is the time of year when your skin may be dry, irritated and even more prone to breakouts, all at once! Fortunately, sweet orange oil can help to banish your skin care woes thanks to its nourishing, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.

Simply add a few drops to a carrier oil such as jojoba or coconut oil and proceed to massage into your skin. You can use it head to toe and it will leave a lovely, lingering scent on your skin.

Health benefits

As a tonic, sweet orange oil can aid in easing digestive issues and relieve constipation. It can combat colds and flu and help to relieve stress.

Be sure to diffuse a few drops of the oil at the first signs of a flu to help relieve congestion and stop that flu right in its tracks.

Spiritual benefits

This lovely oil promotes a feeling of happiness and warmth when used in aromatherapy. It helps the spiritual body release self judgment, obsessions and fears so the emotional body can feel restored and balanced. It helps to uplift the spirits, calm the nervous system and help us make better choices in our life.

To really reap its spiritual benefits try adding a few drops to a carrier oil and treat yourself to a massage. You can enjoy a self massage on your scalp, neck and shoulders or you can get a loved one to treat you to a full body or back massage. Just be sure to return the favour!
