Blood Orange Essential Oil

Citrus aurantium dulcis
Food Grade, Cold Pressed
Energizing, Stimulating, Inspiring

Bright and revitalizing citrus aroma that energizes and cleanses the mind, while boosting mental focus.


Blood Orange Oil is similar to (Sweet) Orange oil in uses and scent, but Blood Orange has a richer citrus aroma. It is often used to help energize and lift mood and combat depressed feelings. The oil can be applied sparingly to skin to help reduce inflammation and redness, as well as aches and pains. Orange oil has also been used to help ease digestive problems. It is also known to have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and diuretic properties. Blood orange essential oil can also be used as an insect repellant for pesky mosquitos and flies. The oil is also effective at neutralizing unpleasant odors such as from cooking and tobacco.

Topically*:  Combine this oil with your choice of carrier oil and apply directly to the skin to reduce inflammation or improve mood. Rubbing onto skin can also help improve personal scent and reduce odor of perspiration.

Aromatically: Diffuse and/or inhale the scent of Blood Orange alone or with complimentary oils to promote clarity, happiness, and mental focus. Diffusion into the air will also aid in deodorizing your home. (Be sure to check how your diffuser acts with citrus oil, as some diffusers can be damaged.)
