Sweet Orange is derived from an evergreen tree. It is smaller than the bitter orange tree, and less hardy with fewer or no spines. The fruit itself has a sweet pulp with no bitter membrane.
Properties for Sweet Orange Essential Oil are as follows: antidepressant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, aphrodisiac, carminative, cordial, deodorant, digestive, stimulant (nervous) and tonic (cardiac, circulatory). It has also been applied to combat colds, constipation, dull skin, flatulence, the flu, gums, slow digestion, and stress.
There is some argument, but it is believed that sweet orange was brought to Europe by the Arabs in the First century along with the bitter orange.
Please note, ORGANIKOS VALLEY does not recommend ORANGE OIL be taken internally unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor certified in clinical Aromatherapy
