Imagine waking up on a cool morning to the smell of fresh pancakes or french toast. Those tiny pleasures can be fleeting when we start counting our to-dos, but with Sweet Orange, you may be able to hold on to those simple moments a little longer.
Possessing a citrusy and tart aroma, Sweet Orange uplifts your emotions while sweeping away stress. Extraordinarily, Sweet Orange stirs up both calming and joyful sensations because of its antidepressant and stimulating properties. It can also work as a secret weapon in the kitchen against stubborn grease stains.
There are numerous cultivated varieties of Sweet Orange such as Jaffa, Navel and Valencia. The small evergreen Sweet Orange tree is less hardy than the bitter variety and has fewer spines. To extract the essential oil, the peel of the Oranges are put through a cold-pressed process and bottled for your delight.
