Hello everyone and welcome back to Stylish Brunette! Today’s post is about different ways to use wild orange essential oil.
I am a huge fan of essential oils and I plan on blogging more about them!
Wild orange essential oil is not as frequently used and although regular orange oil can be readily found, wild orange is said to have more and stronger properties. Its aroma is obviously citrusy, but very sweet too.
As with any citrus oil, it may cause photosensitivity when exposed to sunlight within 12+ hours of use. Use at night, or only on unexposed skin to avoid a reaction. Always test for skin sensitivity prior to widespread use. Excessive use of any oil can lead to skin sensitization. Keep out of eyes, ears, or nose. Not all oils are created equal, so test brands carefully, and never use an oil in a way not recommended by its maker.
