What is it useful for?

Sweet orange is absolutely the best essential oil to fight cellulite and water retention, but also poor blood and lymphatic circulation. Always used with massages (never pure, but diluted with vegetable oils, or creams), it is very useful as anti-wrinkle, since it has a strong antioxidant action.

As for the emotional sphere, like all citrus fruits, also the orange essential oil, thanks to its soothing and anxiolytic properties, is very suitable for those in a bad mood, for the anxious, nervous and stressed people.

For the same reason, it is excellent in case of insomnia. In all these cases it can be used by steaming it into the environment through an air diffuser, or for hot baths, or by adding a drop to a tissue and breathing it from time to time.

The essential oil of sweet orange is also an excellent digestive and is very useful for fighting constipation.

  • Cellulite and water retention: diluted in vegetable oils, or creams, for massages in the affected area.
  • Poor blood and/or lymphatic circulation: diluted in vegetable oils, or creams, for massages in the affected area.
  • Wrinkles, skin imperfections: diluted in vegetable oils, or creams, for massages in the affected area.
  • Anxiety, stress, bad mood and depression: hot baths, or a few drops in the air diffuser, or inhaling a tissue to which a drop of essential oil has been added;
  • Insomnia: just before going to sleep vaporize the essential oil with a air diffuser, or, always before going to sleep, use the essential oil for a hot bath, or keep close to the bed a handkerchief to which was added 1-2 drops of sweet orange essential oil;
  • Difficult digestion: for internal use, 1-2 drops added to a teaspoon of honey, or a sip of water;
  • Constipation: diluted in vegetable oil, for massages around the navel, massaging clockwise.

Use Advice

1. Applications on the skin through massages

The sweet 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:

  • for children: 4 drops of essential oil for a tablespoon of vegetable oil/cream;
  • for adults: 6 drops of essential oil for a tablespoon of vegetable oil/cream.

NB: the sweet 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.

2. Internal use (ingestion)

The sweet 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.

3. Other applications

  • Air diffusion in the environment: from 6 to 10 drops to be added to the water in air diffuser/vaporizer for the environment, or in the pan of the radiator to purify the air, promote breathing and fight unpleasant odors.
  • Inhalation with the handkerchief: add a drop of essential oil to a handkerchief. Breathe in several times during the day.
  • Hot baths: add a tablespoon of baking soda * (or vegetable oil, or milk) to the hot water of the bath, to which 10 drops of essential oil have been added. For a more effective action, after the bath it is advisable to dry well, without rinsing.
  • Footbath: soak your feet (up to the ankles) in a container full of warm water to which a teaspoon of baking soda * (or vegetable oil, or milk), mixed with 4-6 drops of essential oil has been added. Soak for about 15-20 minutes.
  • In the washing machine: add 10-15 drops (depending on the intensity of the desired perfume) directly in the bowl, mixed with detergent, or with a bit of bicarbonate. It helps for a good cleaning of the fabrics giving the clothes a pleasant clean smell.

* 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 sweet 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.
