doTERRA Oil of the Month – Wild Orange
Our resident doTERRA specialist Julie Barfoot suggests…
doTERRA’s Wild Orange
Cold pressed from the peel doTERRA’s Wild Orange is one of the top selling essential oils due to its energising aroma and multiple health benefits and it tastes great in chocolate recipes! I’ve included my healthy Heavenly Raw Chocolate recipe for you to experiment with at home.
High in monoterpenes, Wild Orange possesses stimulating and purifying qualities. As with many citrus peel oils Wild Orange contains powerful antioxidants that can help maintain overall health.
Wild Orange can also be used on surfaces as a natural cleaner leaving a fresh, sweet, refreshing aroma.
Internal Use: Wild Orange can be taken internally by adding 1-2 drops to a full jug of water or glass water bottle.
Topical use: Apply 1 or 2 drops to the desired area and dilute with the fractionated coconut oil to minimise any skin sensitivity.
Tips: Energise the mind and body by diffusing 1-2 drops of Wild Orange along with equal parts Peppermint and Frankincense. You can also do the same by dispensing the drops into the palms of your hand, rub palms together and inhale deeply, then rub on the back of the neck.
