Essential oils are a big part of our fragrances here at Kilted Suds. Orange essential oil creates a fantastic fragrance for the spring and summer, or all year long. There are some things that need to be taken into account when using citrus essential oils like orange. For instance, orange essential oil is known to be photo toxic. This means that if used in high concentration or in a leave on product, it is possible that orange essential oil could make you more susceptible to sunburn.
Sweet orange oil is a very popular essential oil with a wide array of natural benefits. It has been shown to improve digestion, be nourishing for dry, irritated, or acne prone skin, eliminate toxins from the body, reduce anxiety and boost mood. It is also believed that sweet orange essential oil can help to reduce dark spots and blemishes, fight free radicals (read more on free radicals here), promote cell growth and collagen synthesis, shrink large pores, and even firm the skin.
We use orange essential oil in a variety of our products, not only for the smell, but also for the benefits the oil carries. Find orange essential oils in products such as our Creative Sugar Scrub, Creative Roller Bottles, Citrus Shine Shampoo, and Sunshine Bar Soap!
