It was bliss at first whiff of Sweet Orange Essential Oil and me. I call my orange oil my sunshine in a bottle! Anytime I am feeling stressed or overwhelmed and need some instant happy, I grab my orange oil and breathe it right in. Within seconds, I can feel my brain calm down and my emotions instantly shift into happy drive.
Stress is the number one cause of so many health ailments. As a whole, we could all use some stress relief. Just by breathing in the Orange Essential Oil, it locks into our brain receptors and helps reduce anxious feelings. Studies have shown that by using orange essential oil aromatherapy, participants reported feeling happier and calmer.
Stressful situations like traveling and meeting deadlines are the perfect times for me to inhale my orange essential oil. I find that when I use my orange oil, I am much more at peace standing in the long lines and being shuffled around like cattle. I may not like it, but I am at least calm and not stressed out about it.
Orange Oil History
Historical uses date back to ancient cultures that used orange oil to aid in digestion issues and colds and coughs. Today not much has changed with the usage. It’s still commonly used for boosting the immune system and supporting the digestion system, but did you know that orange has great muscle relaxing qualities as well? It also promotes circulation and can ease constipation.
Why Mom’s Love Orange Essential Oil
I’ve also seen Orange Oil help parents with kids who are experiencing meltdowns from stress and depression. These supermoms have their children inhale one drop and stand back as the kids go from the Incredible Hulk back to perfect little angels within minutes. Now, who doesn’t want that?
Quick pick me up:
If I’ve had “one of those days” when everything seems like it’s just too much, I fill the tub, fill my diffuser with 10 drops of Orange Essential Oil and bliss out. All of my stress feels like it just melts away.
Ahhhh sunshine in a bottle!
