Oranges for Christmas

A common Christmas tradition is to have oranges. They’ve been around for centuries as a holiday treat for eating and decor.

But did you know that oranges can also be used in aromatherapy? Sweet Orange Oil, (Citrus sinensis) to be exact!

When you peel an orange and the peel sprays a delightful scent into the air, that is actually the oil! When it’s processed and distilled it is great for a variety of health and well-being applications.

According to Pompeii Organics, sweet orange is helpful to boost circulation, relax the body, and calm muscle spasms. It also fights bacteria and strengthens the immune system, which is one reason we eat oranges when we are sick!

Mentally and emotionally, sweet orange is uplifting. You might notice your mood lifting just by eating one! Diffuse sweet orange into the air or dilute in a carrier oil or lotion and apply to sore or spastic muscles. This is one of the best smelling oils and makes a sweet and cheerful perfume. 🙂

Have a great weekend, folks! Try to find peace and joy in this busy season. Enjoy it!

Not Christmas Yet

Don’t you hate how Christmas pops up in stores before its proper time? Us too, but we can’t resist telling you about a very Christmassy oil: Scotch Pine (Pinus sylvestrus)!

Pine isn’t just a nice smell at Christmas; it’s also an amazing health and cleaning ingredient. According to Pompeii Organics, pine helps decongest and soothe respirator passages, making it great for cold and flu season. It is very effective as a steam inhalation to clean out sinuses and kill germs!

Pine is a warming oil, meaning it helps with stiff and sore muscles and joints by increasing circulation. It fights inflammation and spasms.

Pine essential oil is also used in green cleaners. Visit Pompeii to find a recipe!
