Uses of orange essential oil

Orange essential oil is used in the world of cosmetics, but it also has medicinal and industrial uses. Specifically in the cosmetics industry it is used in creams, lotions and soaps.

The enzymes contained in this oil help to exfoliate dead skin cells, often leaving a radiant and luminous appearance. It is also a widely used ingredient in products that fight cellulite because it helps eliminate toxins, excess water and stimulates the lymphatic system.

At Mediterranean Spirit we use orange essential oil in the composition and fragrance of our star product, the anti-aging facial serum. You can find it in the INCI (ingredients) of the products with the name Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Peel Oil and it is extracted from sweet orange peel.

The sweet orange is quite rich in vitamin C but also in vitamins A and B, as well as flavonoids, enzymes and phytonutrients. Do you dare to try our facial serum? you will be surprised with the results!

The only thing you have to remember is that essential oil is photosensitive, which means that you must protect yourself from UV rays with a sunscreen before going out, otherwise spots could appear on your skin.

They are the essential oils of aniseed pepper, sandalwood, sage, basil, cinnamon, bergamot, rose, palmarosa, patchouli, citronella, oregano, nutmeg, clove, eucalyptus, neroli, lemon, marjoram, incense, juniper, hyssop, jasmine, geranium, grapefruit and ginger.
