Wild Orange Oil Uses and Benefits

  1. Possibly one of the most distinct characteristics of Wild Orange oil is its powerful scent. The strong, sweet, citrus aroma of Wild Orange makes it useful for purifying the air, promoting and energizing an uplifting environment, or simply creating a pleasant smell in the home. To harness the purifying power and aroma of Wild Orange oil, place a few drops on your air filter at home. This will improve your home’s scent while simultaneously purifying the air. 
     
  2. The purifying properties of Wild Orange oil are not only useful for cleansing the air, but you can also use the oil to cleanse surfaces around the home.

Not only is Wild Orange helpful for purifying your kitchen table, countertop, or anything your family might use frequently throughout the day, but it can also be useful when cleaning the bathroom.

Fun Fact:

Originating from Southeast Asia, oranges have been grown for centuries. In many cultures, orange trees are known as a symbol of love and marriage.

Plant Description

Citrus sinensis is an evergreen tree, also commonly referred to as the Sweet Orange tree. As the name suggests, the tree bears sweet fruit that has many uses—juices, marmalades or jellies, and flavoring for sweets and baked goods. Though there are vast uses for the fruit itself, it is from the rind of the fruit that doTERRA Wild Orange oil is extracted through the process of cold pressing.  While the tree is thought to be native to Southeast Asia, doTERRA sources Wild Orange oil from the Dominican Republic. 

Chemistry of Wild Orange Essential Oil

Main Chemical Components: Limonene

The primary chemical constituent of Wild Orange oil, Limonene, is a monoterpene that is known for its cleansing properties when used as a skin or surface cleanser, as well as its stimulating and enhancing effects on mood when used aromatically. This chemical profile is why Wild Orange oil is so useful in everyday life. The cleansing properties of the oil make Wild Orange useful for homemade cleaning agents. The stimulating effects of Limonene also make Wild Orange oil popular for diffusing and topical application when users want to promote energizing or uplifting feelings. 

Oils that blend well with Wild Orange Essential Oil

Not only does Wild Orange essential oil have unlimited uses for recipes, DIYs, and healthy living, but it also blends well with a wide variety of oils for diffusion. For a refreshing aroma, blend Wild Orange oil with Peppermint, Spearmint, Douglas Fir, or doTERRA Breathe®. To instantly recreate the smells of autumn, consider blending Wild Orange oil with warm, spicy essential oils like Cinnamon, Clove, Frankincense, or Cedarwood. When you want to invite the scents of spring into your home, blend Wild Orange with citrus and floral oils like Lime, Lemon, Grapefruit, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, and Citrus Bliss®
