Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis) essential oil is made from the peel of the orange fruit. Its properties for skin include: antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, slightly astringent, cleansing, circulatory stimulant and skin conditioning. As a general skin tonic, it is recommended for all skin types except for severely dry, but particularly beneficial for dull, mature and dry, irritated skin as well as skin exposed to extreme weather. The essential oil is also helpful to treat skin conditions such as acne, seborrhea and cellulite.
The essential oil of the sweet orange has a sweet, bright and cheery aroma, and is highly antidepressant and calming.
