For the month of April we are introducing two ways to enjoy the fruity, bright aroma of Orange oil. This fragrant and functional duo showcases two unique ways to enjoy this popular fruit!
Our Orange 5 Fold and Orange Terpenes duo is an Oil of the Month offering throughout the month of April. Check back with us soon to see if we have added it to our collection.
Orange 5 Fold
With its sparkling, sweet, and juicy scent, Orange 5 Fold evokes the uplifted, bright feelings of a warm springtime walk. Its rich, citrusy aroma is a delightful addition to any day to promote a cheery outlook and sense of emotional well-being. Orange 5 Fold is a concentrated form of Orange Essential Oil that goes through multiple rounds of distillation. During this process, terpenes are partially removed from the oil, allowing for a unique chemical profile and stunning orange scent. It is a favorite for soap and candle-making, thanks to its heavier composition. However, it may be sensitizing to the skin if too much is applied. Please dilute this oil in a carrier up to 1% before enjoying topically.
