Directions for Use
Essential oils are the highly concentrated active ingredients of plants. They should always be diluted in a base before use and should not be taken internally without professional recommendation.
- Baths: Add 5 - 10 drops of essential oil(s) to a warm run bath. If skin is sensitive, blend the essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil first. Close the door so the vapours don't escape. Soak for at least 10 minutes relaxing and breathing deeply. For added moisturising dilute the oils in 10ml of carrier before adding to the bath.
- Massage: add 5 - 6 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil. Mix thoroughly and apply liberally to the skin.
- Inhalations: Add 4 - 5 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head, close your eyes and lean over the bowl. Inhale the vapour for a few minutes.
- Burners and Diffusers: Fill the bowl of the burner/vaporiser with water and then add 3 - 6 drops of essential oil. Light the candle and the oil will evaporate as the water heats up. Do not let the bowl dry out.
Caring for Your Essential Oils
SOil essential oils and carrier oils are living products that are vulnerable to heat, moisture, air and light. It is best to store them in a cool, dark place with the lids well sealed. If your fridge is the only cool place around, allow the oils to reach a cool room temperature before use (around 20 degrees C).

It's really affordable too!05/05/2018, By REDWorks well in a diffuser with different scents for a good fresh smell throughout the house. Really like this oil04/05/2018, By BeeI love this scent! However, being new to EOs, I'm wondering if this oil is photosensitive? I know sweet orange is safe but I'm confused by the latin names. On the bottle it says "citrus auranthium" which is the name for bitter orange(which is phototoxic), yet it says "citrus sinensis" in the description here. Could someone kindly advise me on this. It also would be a good idea for the company to list more details on the label itself with regard to safe use. Thanks!10/04/2018, By StephanieVery strong, so don't need to use much for the effect.

Love it!13/08/2015, By KirstySuch a refreshing and uplifting scent. I read a list as long as my arm of uses for orange oil but honestly, this far Ive pretty much jus used it on skin and for smelling into a state of relaxation though I do intend to put it to some more useful work as well.
I took it on a plane and it leaked, luckily into a wad of cotton swabs which I then placed into my cupboards as a replacement to potpourri in the underwear drawer :D
Smells lovely, very well-priced but beware taking it on planes.15/04/2015, By JonahThis oil just smells lovely. What can I say.19/04/2011, By NirvanaReally wonderful smell! Much stronger that some others Ive tried so you can use less that normal.23/02/2011, By KaramenaThis essential oil is so clean, uplifting and refreshing, but it comes into its own for Christmas - pair this one with Soil Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil for your vaporiser or oil burner, 4 drops of each and your home will be filled with a wonderful Christmassy fragrance
