This or That: Orange, Orange and More Orange!

September 16, 2016

Orange oils have become a staple in almost every essential oil users home, and it’s no wonder why! Orange oils are known for their versatile and variegated therapeutic properties, as well as their robust aromas. From being used in perfumes to cleaning products, Orange is basically the new Lemon.

Why is it becoming so popular? Orange oils have a high limonene content, making them great antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral agents. A good choice in making homemade cleaners and disinfecting sprays. These oils are also known for being anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, and helping with an array of digestive issues. Furthermore, being an immunostimulant, Orange oils are supportive to a healthy immune system and overall wellbeing. What’s more, Orange oils are wonderful antidepressants. Try diffusing Orange oil to promote a positive and uplifting environment.

With so many different types of Orange oils at Edens Garden, choosing just one can be a little overwhelming. So what’s the difference? Not much as far as therapeutic properties go. What it really boils down to is personal preference in aroma. We don’t offer digital smell technology (yet!), so we’ll do our best to explain the unique aromas that define each of our Orange oils.

Blood Orange

Blood Orange has an aroma that takes you right into the orange groves. The aroma is similar to that of the orange peel, with a fruity sweetness blended into a beautiful tangy green aroma.

Sweet Orange

We love the soft complexities of our Sweet Orange. This oil is very true to it’s name. Think of hard orange candy with a tart filling. Out of all of our oranges, this one may have the most traditional orange aroma.

Wild Orange

Wild Orange is just that: wild! It is deep and complex, with a rich and fruity citrus bouquet. Very similar to the scent of fresh squeezed orange juice in the morning.

Choose your favorite Orange and make a skin toning, acne spot treatment by combining 6 drops of Orange to 1 oz of witch hazel. Or test out it’s uplifting properties by adding Orange oil to a personal inhaler and taking it with you on the go. And finally, let us know which Orange is your favorite!

    Hi Jenny! I would recommend our Wild Orange, as I believe it smells the closest to doTERRA’s.

    My sister had me try her Doterra Wild Orange and I truly loved it. Out of your three oranges here, the details of the product and where its from (peel) are all the same; but the scent must be slightly different. I would love to get what was closest to the Doterra scent. Would it be more the Blood or Wild? I already have the sweet and that did not go well for me. Thank you.

    Hi Marla! As far as therapeutic properties go, Tangerine and most citrus oils are very similar, because they are very high in limonene. However, their aromas are all very unique. Our Tangerine oil is sweet, dry and candy-like.
