Why You’ll Love Organic Orange Essential Oil
The slightly sweet, citrus notes of a fresh orange are captured in this essential oil. Thrive Market’s essential oils are crafted from the highest quality ingredients to produce top of the line oils. Our specially selected botanicals are harvested, sorted, and then gently extracted using either steam distillation or cold expression to reduce deterioration of the aromatic compounds. The result—a premium essential oil with the truest expression of the plant that can be used in a multitude of ways.
Thrive Market prides itself on offering a thoughtfully curated selection of wholesome products, from our top-tier health food items to our bath and beauty goods. Our certified organic, non-GMO essential oils fit right into our mission to make healthy living easy and affordable for everyone.
How it’s made
Thrive Market’s Organic Orange Oil is created using cold expression, which is a process that involves pricking the rind of ripe organic oranges. The punctured rind releases the potent essential oils that are collected and separated from the fruit juice by centrifugal force. When oil is collected this way it has an even higher quality aroma than those extracted using steam distillation.
All about orange
The common orange, known botanically as Citrus sinensis, is a hybrid between pomelo (Citrus maxima) and mandarin (Citrus reticulata), and grows on an evergreen tree, which is native to Asia. These sweet oranges are mentioned in Chinese literature and date back as far as 314 BC. Today, it’s the most cultivated fruit tree in the world and the oranges harvested are often destined for juices, soft drinks, and candies. The oils of this prized fruit, however, have been used to scent household and cosmetic products. The sweet and citrusy aroma not only makes them smell better, but improves their cleaning power as well.
Using orange around the home
Orange is often used for aromatherapy and as a cleaning and housekeeping agent. The simplest use is to take a drop of oil and rub it between the palms of the hands and inhaling the fragrance-—it’s said to provide an instant mood boost. For other ways to use it, see the following below:
- Aromatherapy: Use 5-10 drops of oil per one cup of water either in a spray bottle, or in a diffuser. Orange is wonderful as a solo scent, but you can also experiment with blending this extremely versatile oil.
- Surface cleaner: Mixing vinegar and water with orange and bergamot oils can yield an environmentally friendly, aromatic all-purpose cleaning spray.
- Linen spray: Combine 8-10 drops with witch hazel or water in a spray bottle to spritz over sheets and towels to keep them smelling fresh!
- Laundry sheet: Add several drops orange oil to a clean damp washcloth and toss in the dryer to freshen linens.
Caring for your essential oil
Make sure to store your essential oils in a cool, dark place and avoid extreme changes in temperature to ensure the longest life for your collection. Essential oils do not turn rancid like vegetable oil, but they will degrade gradually into a state where the therapeutic properties become diminished. If you have a particularly large bottle of oil, you may want to decant it into smaller bottles to protect one bottle from oxidization for longer periods. You can expect this oil to remain in good condition for four years and even longer when cared for properly!
