Orange, Sweet: Citrus sinensis var. dulcis, cold pressed peel, U.S.A.. Sweet Orange essential oil has a sweet citrus fragrance and is orange in color. It is antidepressant and calming, refreshes the air and dissipates cooking odors. It is also a good grease cutter and is very useful in removing gooey residues, such as price labels from glass products and glass picture frames (without the picture inside the frame!). Always test a small area as its color may discolor certain finishes.
As with all cold pressed citrus essential oils, there's a chance of photo toxicity on skin exposed to the sun. Blends well with cinnamon, coriander, clove, frankincense, jasmine, and lavender. For making soap, use 1 oz. of citrus oil per lb. of fat.
