How to Use
Benefits: Sweet orange essential oil adds an uplifting aroma to soaps, DIY skincare and personal care items, perfumes, detergents, and room sprays. Added to the bath it is a wonderful way to wind down after a hard day.
Regulatory Status: Sweet orange essential oil is listed on the FDA Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) list.
