EGYPT. Orange, Bitter (Citrus aurantium) Essential Oil, Cold Pressed, Organic
Bitter Orange essential oil has a citrusy fragrance, in between the sweetness of Sweet Orange and the tang of Grapefruit. It is considered a top note for blending purposes.
Bitter Orange essential oil sparks both lively, energized feelings and calm confidence. It is said to help digestive symptoms including stomach upset, constipation, and flatulence, and to benefit skin conditions and upper respiratory infections. Like Grapefruit essential oil, Bitter Orange boosts metabolism and is used in blends for weight loss.
Our essential oils are sold in amber glass bottles with a dropper orifice for drop-by-drop administration. Do not ingest essential oils unless under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner or experienced aromatherapist. Essential oils should always be diluted in a carrier oil before being applied to the skin. (Some examples of carrier oils: Jojoba, Sunflower, Grapeseed, Rosehip Seed, Castor, and Avocado; gently liquified Coconut Oil, Shea, or Cocoa Butter can also work for creating thicker body care products.) Always test the diluted essential oil on a small patch of skin before applying more widely.
Maximum recommended dilution for adults topical use: 1% (one drop per teaspoon of carrier oil). Like other essential oils derived from citrus peels, Bitter Orange has a relatively short shelf life and is best stored in your fridge, and can be photosensitizing.
