The bitter orange essential oil, as in the case of all citrus fruits, is known for its sedative and soothing properties of the nervous system, as well as for driving away bad thoughts and keep your spirit up. For this reason, it is recommended to people down tone or in a state of depression.
It also has digestive and spasmolytic properties and is a purifier and antioxidant for the skin, very useful against excessive sweating and skin blemishes.
These are the main applications of the bitter orange essential oil:
The bitter orange essential oil should never be used pure on the skin, but should be diluted in a fatty substance, such as vegetable oils (olive oil, sunflower oil, almonds, etc.), macerated oils, and creams.
Mixed with vegetable oil (or with a cream) the recommended dilution is:
An excellent combination to stretch the contracted muscles is by applying a tablespoon of lavender macerated oil, mixed with 4-6 drops of bitter orange essential oil followed by a massage in the contracted area.
NB: the bitter orange essential oil is photosensitizing, so it should never be used before exposure to the sun, especially during the summer. In this case it may cause burns, blisters, skin spots and other skin irritations.
The bitter orange essential oil from Erbe di Mauro is certified for food use, so it can also be ingested. However, we recommend taking it carefully because, despite being a natural product, it contains very complex and very concentrated substances, so an excessive dosage could be toxic.
In this regard, before use, we recommend that you ask for advice to a professional (doctor/herbalist /naturopath).
I also remind that essential oils should never be used pure. You can add a drop to a lump of sugar, or a teaspoon of honey, or in water, or in fruit juices. Dosages should never exceed 2-3 drops at a time.
NB: Essential oils for internal use can interfere with many drugs. In this case, always consult an expert before ingestion.
* Essential oils are not soluble in water; while bicarbonate, or alternatively fatty substances (such as vegetable oils, or milk) have indeed the purpose of making them soluble in water.
Expiry: after 5 years, if stored well in the dark, away from sources of heat.
The bitter orange essential oil is photosensitizing, so it should never be applied to the skin before exposing it to the sun. It is contraindicated to pregnant and breastfeeding women, to children under 3 and to those allergic to bitter orange.
Never use pure on the skin or on the mucous membranes. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a dry place, away from direct sunlight and sources of heat.
All essential oils naturally contain potentially allergenic molecules such as cinnamaldehyde, citronellol, eugenol, citrus, coumarin, limonene, linalool, geraniol, etc. which can, therefore, trigger allergic reactions. For this reason, we recommend testing them before use, applying 1 drop dissolved in 30 ml of olive oil (or other vegetable oil) on the skin of the forearm and wait 48 hours for the possible occurrence of allergies.
