TREASURES FROM THE ORANGE TREE
When it comes to aromatherapy, the orange tree is a hard worker - providing three different types of essential oils from different parts of the plant, each with a contribution to make towards helping create a relaxed, positive mood and sense of well-being
The zippiest of the lot is oil pressed from the skin of the fruit - whether you choose sweet or bitter orange, both give a fresh uplifting zing that cheers the soul
when it comes to helping you get in the right frame of mind for sleep, the true asset is neroli oil - a precious flower essential oil distilled from orange blossom. It’s not only beautiful as a scent, but is mildly sedative and can calm states of anxiety - so great for nights when your mind is working overtime and you need it to still
For a similar benefit but less potent perfume, petitgrain oil is distilled from the young leaves of bitter orange trees. It has a lower sedative effect than pure neroli, but still helps instil a feeling of optimism, calm and restfulness. It is great for the skin too, being gently antiseptic and great at balancing skin’s own sebum production
