Antidepressant\u003cbr\u003eThe very action of peeling an orange is so uplifting, thanks to the release of the orange oil in the peel. Not surprisingly, the essential oil of orange is often used in aromatherapy to bring one out of a depressed or pensive mood.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eA mere whiff of the oil can make you feel alert and relaxed at the same time. It induces a sense of happiness and well-being. Along with the reduction in cortisol secretion and lifting of mental anxiety, physical changes such as lowering of pulse rate are observed.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e2. Sedative\u003cbr\u003eOrange oil acts as a mild sedative, taking away the edge of mental and physical fatigue, pain, anger, and other strong feelings. The sedative effect of this aromatic oil is different from the tranquilizing effect of opiate drugs, though.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor instance, instead of pushing you into a drug-induced haze, orange oil keeps your senses alert while providing a relaxed feeling. It has none of the side effects and addictive nature of narcotic drugs. Best of all, you need not ingest orange oil to experience its sedative effect. A few drops of it in an infuser or in your bath water can make way for a relaxed evening at the end of a hectic day.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e3. Anti-inflammatory\u003cbr\u003eInflammation is part of body’s healing mechanism, but uncontrolled and chronic inflammation has many negative effects, apart from causing swelling and pain.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eOrange oil can regulate the inflammatory response of the body to allergens, injuries, infections and other irritants. You can observe perceptible changes such as reduction in redness and swelling at the site of injury. In case of respiratory allergens, the anti-inflammatory action can help relieve a runny nose and cough. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e4. Antispasmodic\u003cbr\u003eSpasms are involuntary muscle contractions that are often painful. Commonly referred to as muscle cramps, spasms in skeletal muscles can be debilitating, and can result in sprains and muscle tears. Abnormal nerve stimulation, as well as abnormalities in muscle function, can trigger spasms, but the relaxing effect of orange oil can bring immediate relief.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eSpasms can sometimes occur in abdominal muscles, resulting in severe abdominal pain and diarrhea. Orange oil can help with this too.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e5. Carminative\u003cbr\u003eAccumulation of gas in the abdomen can cause severe stomach discomfort and heartburn. Chest pain from gas is often mistaken for a heart attack because of its severity. When the stomach becomes extended with excess gas, it exerts pressure on the organs in the upper abdomen, including the heart. Reflux of stomach content into esophagus burns its lining, resulting in pain and soreness.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAs a carminative, orange essential oil reduces gas formation, besides facilitating its expulsion from the gastrointestinal tract. It relaxes the abdominal muscles and the anal sphincters, allowing the excess gas to be eliminated without causing pain, while preventing gastroesophageal reflux.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e6. Cholagogue\u003cbr\u003eOrange oil promotes the secretion of both exocrine and endocrine glands producing enzymes and hormones. Because of this, it has a wide-ranging effect on several physiological processes in the body, including digestion, menstruation in women and milk production in lactating mothers.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIncreased production of bile and other digestive enzymes help increase digestion and assimilation of nutrients.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e7. Diuretic\u003cbr\u003eOrange has a mild diuretic action that results in increased production of urine. This facilitates the removal of undesirable substances from the body, including toxic substances, excess salts, and by-products of protein digestion such as uric acid.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eBy removing excess fluids from the body, diuretics like orange oil reduce edema caused by water retention in tissues. It also reduces blood pressure and excessive load on the heart.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e8. Antiseptic\u003cbr\u003eThe antiseptic property of all citrus oils, including orange essential oil is well known. Any cut on the skin can invite opportunistic germs into the body, making the wound susceptible to infections. That’s why we clean the exposed area immediately and apply antiseptics that reduce the risk of infection.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAntiseptic agents disinfect the area by making it unsuitable to microbial growth. Orange oil is an excellent antiseptic for disinfecting cuts and scrapes, insect bites, open boils and other skin eruptions. Besides, it is safe for use in children.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e9. Aphrodisiac\u003cbr\u003eOrange oil is considered a mild aphrodisiac, increasing interest in sex as well as performance. While its ability to reduce anxiety and relax the mind may be playing a part, an increase in the secretion of sex hormones can be helpful too. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e10. Tonic\u003cbr\u003eSubstances that promote general health and well-being are called tonics. They improve immunity and help with the functioning of different systems in the body. Orange essential oil is a tonic that refreshes and relaxes the body and mind and increases strength and vitality.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e9 Uses For Orange Essential Oil\u003cbr\u003e11. For improving mood\u003cbr\u003eWhen you feel anxious or depressed, the anti-depressive and anxiolytic properties of orange essential oil can act as an instant pick-me-up. Use 5-6 drops in a diffuser on very low heat. Allow the oil to dissipate into the air, and experience your mood lifting up and the worries falling away.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor faster results, take 2 drops of sweet orange oil on one palm and then rub the palms together to spread the oil evenly. Hold the hands close to your face and inhale deeply. Or you can use one drop of oil on one wrist and rub it with the other.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eCitrus oils are not generally recommended for topical use because they cause photo-toxicity on exposure to sunlight. Sweet orange oil is relatively milder, displaying no toxicity after 12 hours of application. However, use it topically in very small amounts, and preferably in the evening.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e12. To relieve fatigue\u003cbr\u003ePhysical and mental fatigue can be relieved with orange essential oil. Mix it with the essential oil of lavender to enhance the effect.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eMix 5 drops each of sweet orange oil and lavender oil and use the mixture in a diffuser. Apply a drop of the mixture to your pulse points for faster absorption into the body.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAdding essential oils to your bath would give you maximum benefits, but it should be avoided for the reason mentioned above.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e13. To control acne\u003cbr\u003eOrange oil has a drying and grease-cutting effect on the skin that can help reduce acne in people with oily skin. Add 2-3 drops of orange oil to a cup of water and wash the face with it before going to bed.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eOrange oil acts as a deep cleanser when used with a light carrier oil like olive oil or sweet almond oil. Mix 3 -4 drops of orange oil to a tablespoon of carrier oil and apply on the face with a cotton ball. Allow to remain for 5 minutes and wipe off. This is an excellent way to remove makeup in the evening.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor a spot treatment for acne, dip a cotton swab in sweet orange oil and touch the acne. The antiseptic effect of orange oil helps reduce bacteria that worsen acne.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e14. For improving dental hygiene\u003cbr\u003eThe refreshing smell of orange oil can not only combat bad breath but control gum infections and inflammatory conditions such as gingivitis and pyorrhea. Orange oil reduces the bacterial load in the mouth and brings down inflammation of the gum.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eTake a cup of warm water and add ½ teaspoon salt and 5 drops of orange oil to it. Mix vigorously and use it for gargling. People who frequently get mouth ulcers find it very helpful for numbing the pain and reducing incidence.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e15. To relieve seasonal allergies\u003cbr\u003eSeasonal allergies are usually caused by respiratory allergens such as pollen and spores of mold. When these tiny, biological particles are inhaled, the lining of the nasal passages get irritated.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWhite blood cells in the capillaries recognize these particles as foreign bodies trying to enter the body, and they unleash an immune response against the allergen by releasing histamines. This starts an inflammatory process characterized by red and itchy eyes and nose, excessive mucous secretion, and sneezing. Arrest the progress of allergic reactions using the essential oil of orange.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWhen seasonal allergies are anticipated, carry along a small vial of orange oil. Whenever you feel the slightest tingle in your nose, take a sniff of the oil. Alternatively, you can carry a ball of cotton with a few drops of the oil in it or apply a drop to the wrist or palm of the hand.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAllergic reactions often spread to nearby mucous membranes like that of sinuses. This can result in nasal and sinus congestion and headache. Essential oil inhalation can relieve these symptoms.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e16. For treating arthritis\u003cbr\u003eArthritis or pain and swelling of joints can be extremely debilitating. Bone deformities, loss of cartilage, and autoimmune diseases can cause arthritis. Irrespective of the cause, chronic inflammation is the main symptom of arthritis, so the anti-inflammatory action of orange oil can provide relief.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eMix 10 drops of orange oil into a tablespoon of coconut oil melted over low heat. Apply the mixture on the affected area and gently rub it in until it is completely absorbed. You can add 2-3 drops of capsaicin oil to reduce pain.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e17. To improve digestion\u003cbr\u003eThe cholagogue property of orange oil can be employed to improve digestion while its carminative action reduces flatulence and other stomach problems that cause aversion to food.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eTo improve digestion, use 5-6 drops of sweet orange oil in the diffuser. You can mix 3-4 drops of the oil in a teaspoonful of olive oil and apply it on the abdominal area. This increases the secretion of digestive enzymes, improving digestion and relieving gas and constipation. Put one drop of orange oil on a tissue and keep it near babies refusing to feed because of colicky pains.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe beauty of essential oils is that internal use is not necessary to avail their beneficial properties. Mere inhalation is sufficient in most cases. The reason is that the volatile agents in the oil dissipate into the air as very tiny particles and they get directly absorbed through the lining of the nasal passages.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e18. To reduce edema\u003cbr\u003ePeople with chronic inflammation usually have water retention in the body, which becomes apparent as swollen face and feet. Some people develop swollen ankles when they sit for a long time. Edema may not cause severe pain, but it makes people dull and lethargic. They become exhausted on walking short distances because of the extra work the heart has to do to circulate the increased volume of water.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eUse orange oil as massage oil to reduce fluid retention. Warm 3 tablespoons of sesame seed oil and mix in 10 drops of sweet orange oil. Apply on the feet and massage it in.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAnother way to use orange oil for swollen feet is to add it into foot bath. Take warm water in a wide basin and add a mixture of 2 tablespoon sea salt and 10-15 drops of orange oil. Immerse the feet in the water for 20 to 30 minutes.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor facial edema, add a teaspoon of sea salt to a cup of warm water and stir in 5 drops of sweet orange oil. Dip cotton balls in the mixture and place under the eyes and on the cheeks\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e19. For disinfecting surfaces\u003cbr\u003eBeing an antiseptic oil, orange oil can be used very effectively to clean frequently used surfaces like kitchen counters, cutting boards, cutlery and dining table. In fact, it is a common ingredient in many cleaning products. However, commercial products may contain many undesirable substances that are better avoided in food preparation and serving areas. Make your own disinfectant solution with orange oil.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAdd 10 drops of sweet orange oil to a cup of water and use a clean sponge to wipe the surfaces with this mixture. Allow to dry naturally. Since orange oil is non-toxic, you don’t need to rinse the surfaces again. You can fill a spritz bottle with the mixture and spray on surfaces as you wipe them down. You will have a kitchen that is clean and smells great as well.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eDoor handles and knobs are usually full of germs because of many people transferring germs to these surfaces. They are a main cause of contagious diseases. Wiping them down with orange oil cleaning mix can keep their numbers down. This is particularly important during the cold and flu season.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eAbout Our Oils\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eHippocrates Health Institute essential oils uses\u003cstrong\u003e no artificial fragrances and no dispersing massage oils.

Antidepressant\u003cbr\u003eThe very action of peeling an orange is so uplifting, thanks to the release of the orange oil in the peel. Not surprisingly, the essential oil of orange is often used in aromatherapy to bring one out of a depressed or pensive mood.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eA mere whiff of the oil can make you feel alert and relaxed at the same time. It induces a sense of happiness and well-being. Along with the reduction in cortisol secretion and lifting of mental anxiety, physical changes such as lowering of pulse rate are observed.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e2. Sedative\u003cbr\u003eOrange oil acts as a mild sedative, taking away the edge of mental and physical fatigue, pain, anger, and other strong feelings. The sedative effect of this aromatic oil is different from the tranquilizing effect of opiate drugs, though.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor instance, instead of pushing you into a drug-induced haze, orange oil keeps your senses alert while providing a relaxed feeling. It has none of the side effects and addictive nature of narcotic drugs. Best of all, you need not ingest orange oil to experience its sedative effect. A few drops of it in an infuser or in your bath water can make way for a relaxed evening at the end of a hectic day.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e3. Anti-inflammatory\u003cbr\u003eInflammation is part of body’s healing mechanism, but uncontrolled and chronic inflammation has many negative effects, apart from causing swelling and pain.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eOrange oil can regulate the inflammatory response of the body to allergens, injuries, infections and other irritants. You can observe perceptible changes such as reduction in redness and swelling at the site of injury. In case of respiratory allergens, the anti-inflammatory action can help relieve a runny nose and cough. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e4. Antispasmodic\u003cbr\u003eSpasms are involuntary muscle contractions that are often painful. Commonly referred to as muscle cramps, spasms in skeletal muscles can be debilitating, and can result in sprains and muscle tears. Abnormal nerve stimulation, as well as abnormalities in muscle function, can trigger spasms, but the relaxing effect of orange oil can bring immediate relief.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eSpasms can sometimes occur in abdominal muscles, resulting in severe abdominal pain and diarrhea. Orange oil can help with this too.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e5. Carminative\u003cbr\u003eAccumulation of gas in the abdomen can cause severe stomach discomfort and heartburn. Chest pain from gas is often mistaken for a heart attack because of its severity. When the stomach becomes extended with excess gas, it exerts pressure on the organs in the upper abdomen, including the heart. Reflux of stomach content into esophagus burns its lining, resulting in pain and soreness.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAs a carminative, orange essential oil reduces gas formation, besides facilitating its expulsion from the gastrointestinal tract. It relaxes the abdominal muscles and the anal sphincters, allowing the excess gas to be eliminated without causing pain, while preventing gastroesophageal reflux.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e6. Cholagogue\u003cbr\u003eOrange oil promotes the secretion of both exocrine and endocrine glands producing enzymes and hormones. Because of this, it has a wide-ranging effect on several physiological processes in the body, including digestion, menstruation in women and milk production in lactating mothers.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIncreased production of bile and other digestive enzymes help increase digestion and assimilation of nutrients.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e7. Diuretic\u003cbr\u003eOrange has a mild diuretic action that results in increased production of urine. This facilitates the removal of undesirable substances from the body, including toxic substances, excess salts, and by-products of protein digestion such as uric acid.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eBy removing excess fluids from the body, diuretics like orange oil reduce edema caused by water retention in tissues. It also reduces blood pressure and excessive load on the heart.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e8. Antiseptic\u003cbr\u003eThe antiseptic property of all citrus oils, including orange essential oil is well known. Any cut on the skin can invite opportunistic germs into the body, making the wound susceptible to infections. That’s why we clean the exposed area immediately and apply antiseptics that reduce the risk of infection.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAntiseptic agents disinfect the area by making it unsuitable to microbial growth. Orange oil is an excellent antiseptic for disinfecting cuts and scrapes, insect bites, open boils and other skin eruptions. Besides, it is safe for use in children.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e9. Aphrodisiac\u003cbr\u003eOrange oil is considered a mild aphrodisiac, increasing interest in sex as well as performance. While its ability to reduce anxiety and relax the mind may be playing a part, an increase in the secretion of sex hormones can be helpful too. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e10. Tonic\u003cbr\u003eSubstances that promote general health and well-being are called tonics. They improve immunity and help with the functioning of different systems in the body. Orange essential oil is a tonic that refreshes and relaxes the body and mind and increases strength and vitality.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e9 Uses For Orange Essential Oil\u003cbr\u003e11. For improving mood\u003cbr\u003eWhen you feel anxious or depressed, the anti-depressive and anxiolytic properties of orange essential oil can act as an instant pick-me-up. Use 5-6 drops in a diffuser on very low heat. Allow the oil to dissipate into the air, and experience your mood lifting up and the worries falling away.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor faster results, take 2 drops of sweet orange oil on one palm and then rub the palms together to spread the oil evenly. Hold the hands close to your face and inhale deeply. Or you can use one drop of oil on one wrist and rub it with the other.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eCitrus oils are not generally recommended for topical use because they cause photo-toxicity on exposure to sunlight. Sweet orange oil is relatively milder, displaying no toxicity after 12 hours of application. However, use it topically in very small amounts, and preferably in the evening.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e12. To relieve fatigue\u003cbr\u003ePhysical and mental fatigue can be relieved with orange essential oil. Mix it with the essential oil of lavender to enhance the effect.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eMix 5 drops each of sweet orange oil and lavender oil and use the mixture in a diffuser. Apply a drop of the mixture to your pulse points for faster absorption into the body.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAdding essential oils to your bath would give you maximum benefits, but it should be avoided for the reason mentioned above.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e13. To control acne\u003cbr\u003eOrange oil has a drying and grease-cutting effect on the skin that can help reduce acne in people with oily skin. Add 2-3 drops of orange oil to a cup of water and wash the face with it before going to bed.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eOrange oil acts as a deep cleanser when used with a light carrier oil like olive oil or sweet almond oil. Mix 3 -4 drops of orange oil to a tablespoon of carrier oil and apply on the face with a cotton ball. Allow to remain for 5 minutes and wipe off. This is an excellent way to remove makeup in the evening.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor a spot treatment for acne, dip a cotton swab in sweet orange oil and touch the acne. The antiseptic effect of orange oil helps reduce bacteria that worsen acne.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e14. For improving dental hygiene\u003cbr\u003eThe refreshing smell of orange oil can not only combat bad breath but control gum infections and inflammatory conditions such as gingivitis and pyorrhea. Orange oil reduces the bacterial load in the mouth and brings down inflammation of the gum.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eTake a cup of warm water and add ½ teaspoon salt and 5 drops of orange oil to it. Mix vigorously and use it for gargling. People who frequently get mouth ulcers find it very helpful for numbing the pain and reducing incidence.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e15. To relieve seasonal allergies\u003cbr\u003eSeasonal allergies are usually caused by respiratory allergens such as pollen and spores of mold. When these tiny, biological particles are inhaled, the lining of the nasal passages get irritated.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWhite blood cells in the capillaries recognize these particles as foreign bodies trying to enter the body, and they unleash an immune response against the allergen by releasing histamines. This starts an inflammatory process characterized by red and itchy eyes and nose, excessive mucous secretion, and sneezing. Arrest the progress of allergic reactions using the essential oil of orange.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWhen seasonal allergies are anticipated, carry along a small vial of orange oil. Whenever you feel the slightest tingle in your nose, take a sniff of the oil. Alternatively, you can carry a ball of cotton with a few drops of the oil in it or apply a drop to the wrist or palm of the hand.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAllergic reactions often spread to nearby mucous membranes like that of sinuses. This can result in nasal and sinus congestion and headache. Essential oil inhalation can relieve these symptoms.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e16. For treating arthritis\u003cbr\u003eArthritis or pain and swelling of joints can be extremely debilitating. Bone deformities, loss of cartilage, and autoimmune diseases can cause arthritis. Irrespective of the cause, chronic inflammation is the main symptom of arthritis, so the anti-inflammatory action of orange oil can provide relief.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eMix 10 drops of orange oil into a tablespoon of coconut oil melted over low heat. Apply the mixture on the affected area and gently rub it in until it is completely absorbed. You can add 2-3 drops of capsaicin oil to reduce pain.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e17. To improve digestion\u003cbr\u003eThe cholagogue property of orange oil can be employed to improve digestion while its carminative action reduces flatulence and other stomach problems that cause aversion to food.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eTo improve digestion, use 5-6 drops of sweet orange oil in the diffuser. You can mix 3-4 drops of the oil in a teaspoonful of olive oil and apply it on the abdominal area. This increases the secretion of digestive enzymes, improving digestion and relieving gas and constipation. Put one drop of orange oil on a tissue and keep it near babies refusing to feed because of colicky pains.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe beauty of essential oils is that internal use is not necessary to avail their beneficial properties. Mere inhalation is sufficient in most cases. The reason is that the volatile agents in the oil dissipate into the air as very tiny particles and they get directly absorbed through the lining of the nasal passages.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e18. To reduce edema\u003cbr\u003ePeople with chronic inflammation usually have water retention in the body, which becomes apparent as swollen face and feet. Some people develop swollen ankles when they sit for a long time. Edema may not cause severe pain, but it makes people dull and lethargic. They become exhausted on walking short distances because of the extra work the heart has to do to circulate the increased volume of water.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eUse orange oil as massage oil to reduce fluid retention. Warm 3 tablespoons of sesame seed oil and mix in 10 drops of sweet orange oil. Apply on the feet and massage it in.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAnother way to use orange oil for swollen feet is to add it into foot bath. Take warm water in a wide basin and add a mixture of 2 tablespoon sea salt and 10-15 drops of orange oil. Immerse the feet in the water for 20 to 30 minutes.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor facial edema, add a teaspoon of sea salt to a cup of warm water and stir in 5 drops of sweet orange oil. Dip cotton balls in the mixture and place under the eyes and on the cheeks\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e19. For disinfecting surfaces\u003cbr\u003eBeing an antiseptic oil, orange oil can be used very effectively to clean frequently used surfaces like kitchen counters, cutting boards, cutlery and dining table. In fact, it is a common ingredient in many cleaning products. However, commercial products may contain many undesirable substances that are better avoided in food preparation and serving areas. Make your own disinfectant solution with orange oil.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAdd 10 drops of sweet orange oil to a cup of water and use a clean sponge to wipe the surfaces with this mixture. Allow to dry naturally. Since orange oil is non-toxic, you don’t need to rinse the surfaces again. You can fill a spritz bottle with the mixture and spray on surfaces as you wipe them down. You will have a kitchen that is clean and smells great as well.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eDoor handles and knobs are usually full of germs because of many people transferring germs to these surfaces. They are a main cause of contagious diseases. Wiping them down with orange oil cleaning mix can keep their numbers down. This is particularly important during the cold and flu season.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eAbout Our Oils\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eHippocrates Health Institute essential oils uses\u003cstrong\u003e no artificial fragrances and no dispersing massage oils.

      Cautions

      Sweet orange oil is relatively milder than other citrus oils like bergamot oil, but being a concentrated mixture of highly potent substances, it should be handled with due respect.

      Although it is called sweet orange oil, the oil actually tastes bitter. It can cause toxicity when used in excess, the main symptoms being vomiting, diarrhea, and headache. Always test for sensitivity before applying to your skin.

      19 Great uses for Sweet Orange

      1. Antidepressant
      The very action of peeling an orange is so uplifting, thanks to the release of the orange oil in the peel. Not surprisingly, the essential oil of orange is often used in aromatherapy to bring one out of a depressed or pensive mood.

      A mere whiff of the oil can make you feel alert and relaxed at the same time. It induces a sense of happiness and well-being. Along with the reduction in cortisol secretion and lifting of mental anxiety, physical changes such as lowering of pulse rate are observed.

      2. Sedative
      Orange oil acts as a mild sedative, taking away the edge of mental and physical fatigue, pain, anger, and other strong feelings. The sedative effect of this aromatic oil is different from the tranquilizing effect of opiate drugs, though.

      For instance, instead of pushing you into a drug-induced haze, orange oil keeps your senses alert while providing a relaxed feeling. It has none of the side effects and addictive nature of narcotic drugs. Best of all, you need not ingest orange oil to experience its sedative effect. A few drops of it in an infuser or in your bath water can make way for a relaxed evening at the end of a hectic day.

      3. Anti-inflammatory
      Inflammation is part of body’s healing mechanism, but uncontrolled and chronic inflammation has many negative effects, apart from causing swelling and pain.

      Orange oil can regulate the inflammatory response of the body to allergens, injuries, infections and other irritants. You can observe perceptible changes such as reduction in redness and swelling at the site of injury. In case of respiratory allergens, the anti-inflammatory action can help relieve a runny nose and cough.

      4. Antispasmodic
      Spasms are involuntary muscle contractions that are often painful. Commonly referred to as muscle cramps, spasms in skeletal muscles can be debilitating, and can result in sprains and muscle tears. Abnormal nerve stimulation, as well as abnormalities in muscle function, can trigger spasms, but the relaxing effect of orange oil can bring immediate relief.

      Spasms can sometimes occur in abdominal muscles, resulting in severe abdominal pain and diarrhea. Orange oil can help with this too.

      5. Carminative
      Accumulation of gas in the abdomen can cause severe stomach discomfort and heartburn. Chest pain from gas is often mistaken for a heart attack because of its severity. When the stomach becomes extended with excess gas, it exerts pressure on the organs in the upper abdomen, including the heart. Reflux of stomach content into esophagus burns its lining, resulting in pain and soreness.

      As a carminative, orange essential oil reduces gas formation, besides facilitating its expulsion from the gastrointestinal tract. It relaxes the abdominal muscles and the anal sphincters, allowing the excess gas to be eliminated without causing pain, while preventing gastroesophageal reflux.

      6. Cholagogue
      Orange oil promotes the secretion of both exocrine and endocrine glands producing enzymes and hormones. Because of this, it has a wide-ranging effect on several physiological processes in the body, including digestion, menstruation in women and milk production in lactating mothers.

      Increased production of bile and other digestive enzymes help increase digestion and assimilation of nutrients.

      7. Diuretic
      Orange has a mild diuretic action that results in increased production of urine. This facilitates the removal of undesirable substances from the body, including toxic substances, excess salts, and by-products of protein digestion such as uric acid.

      By removing excess fluids from the body, diuretics like orange oil reduce edema caused by water retention in tissues. It also reduces blood pressure and excessive load on the heart.

      8. Antiseptic
      The antiseptic property of all citrus oils, including orange essential oil is well known. Any cut on the skin can invite opportunistic germs into the body, making the wound susceptible to infections. That’s why we clean the exposed area immediately and apply antiseptics that reduce the risk of infection.

      Antiseptic agents disinfect the area by making it unsuitable to microbial growth. Orange oil is an excellent antiseptic for disinfecting cuts and scrapes, insect bites, open boils and other skin eruptions. Besides, it is safe for use in children.

      9. Aphrodisiac
      Orange oil is considered a mild aphrodisiac, increasing interest in sex as well as performance. While its ability to reduce anxiety and relax the mind may be playing a part, an increase in the secretion of sex hormones can be helpful too.

      10. Tonic
      Substances that promote general health and well-being are called tonics. They improve immunity and help with the functioning of different systems in the body. Orange essential oil is a tonic that refreshes and relaxes the body and mind and increases strength and vitality.

      9 Uses For Orange Essential Oil
      11. For improving mood
      When you feel anxious or depressed, the anti-depressive and anxiolytic properties of orange essential oil can act as an instant pick-me-up. Use 5-6 drops in a diffuser on very low heat. Allow the oil to dissipate into the air, and experience your mood lifting up and the worries falling away.

      For faster results, take 2 drops of sweet orange oil on one palm and then rub the palms together to spread the oil evenly. Hold the hands close to your face and inhale deeply. Or you can use one drop of oil on one wrist and rub it with the other.

      Citrus oils are not generally recommended for topical use because they cause photo-toxicity on exposure to sunlight. Sweet orange oil is relatively milder, displaying no toxicity after 12 hours of application. However, use it topically in very small amounts, and preferably in the evening.

      12. To relieve fatigue
      Physical and mental fatigue can be relieved with orange essential oil. Mix it with the essential oil of lavender to enhance the effect.

      Mix 5 drops each of sweet orange oil and lavender oil and use the mixture in a diffuser. Apply a drop of the mixture to your pulse points for faster absorption into the body.

      Adding essential oils to your bath would give you maximum benefits, but it should be avoided for the reason mentioned above.

      13. To control acne
      Orange oil has a drying and grease-cutting effect on the skin that can help reduce acne in people with oily skin. Add 2-3 drops of orange oil to a cup of water and wash the face with it before going to bed.

      Orange oil acts as a deep cleanser when used with a light carrier oil like olive oil or sweet almond oil. Mix 3 -4 drops of orange oil to a tablespoon of carrier oil and apply on the face with a cotton ball. Allow to remain for 5 minutes and wipe off. This is an excellent way to remove makeup in the evening.

      For a spot treatment for acne, dip a cotton swab in sweet orange oil and touch the acne. The antiseptic effect of orange oil helps reduce bacteria that worsen acne.

      14. For improving dental hygiene
      The refreshing smell of orange oil can not only combat bad breath but control gum infections and inflammatory conditions such as gingivitis and pyorrhea. Orange oil reduces the bacterial load in the mouth and brings down inflammation of the gum.

      Take a cup of warm water and add ½ teaspoon salt and 5 drops of orange oil to it. Mix vigorously and use it for gargling. People who frequently get mouth ulcers find it very helpful for numbing the pain and reducing incidence.

      15. To relieve seasonal allergies
      Seasonal allergies are usually caused by respiratory allergens such as pollen and spores of mold. When these tiny, biological particles are inhaled, the lining of the nasal passages get irritated.

      White blood cells in the capillaries recognize these particles as foreign bodies trying to enter the body, and they unleash an immune response against the allergen by releasing histamines. This starts an inflammatory process characterized by red and itchy eyes and nose, excessive mucous secretion, and sneezing. Arrest the progress of allergic reactions using the essential oil of orange.

      When seasonal allergies are anticipated, carry along a small vial of orange oil. Whenever you feel the slightest tingle in your nose, take a sniff of the oil. Alternatively, you can carry a ball of cotton with a few drops of the oil in it or apply a drop to the wrist or palm of the hand.

      Allergic reactions often spread to nearby mucous membranes like that of sinuses. This can result in nasal and sinus congestion and headache. Essential oil inhalation can relieve these symptoms.

      16. For treating arthritis
      Arthritis or pain and swelling of joints can be extremely debilitating. Bone deformities, loss of cartilage, and autoimmune diseases can cause arthritis. Irrespective of the cause, chronic inflammation is the main symptom of arthritis, so the anti-inflammatory action of orange oil can provide relief.

      Mix 10 drops of orange oil into a tablespoon of coconut oil melted over low heat. Apply the mixture on the affected area and gently rub it in until it is completely absorbed. You can add 2-3 drops of capsaicin oil to reduce pain.

      17. To improve digestion
      The cholagogue property of orange oil can be employed to improve digestion while its carminative action reduces flatulence and other stomach problems that cause aversion to food.

      To improve digestion, use 5-6 drops of sweet orange oil in the diffuser. You can mix 3-4 drops of the oil in a teaspoonful of olive oil and apply it on the abdominal area. This increases the secretion of digestive enzymes, improving digestion and relieving gas and constipation. Put one drop of orange oil on a tissue and keep it near babies refusing to feed because of colicky pains.

      The beauty of essential oils is that internal use is not necessary to avail their beneficial properties. Mere inhalation is sufficient in most cases. The reason is that the volatile agents in the oil dissipate into the air as very tiny particles and they get directly absorbed through the lining of the nasal passages.

      18. To reduce edema
      People with chronic inflammation usually have water retention in the body, which becomes apparent as swollen face and feet. Some people develop swollen ankles when they sit for a long time. Edema may not cause severe pain, but it makes people dull and lethargic. They become exhausted on walking short distances because of the extra work the heart has to do to circulate the increased volume of water.

      Use orange oil as massage oil to reduce fluid retention. Warm 3 tablespoons of sesame seed oil and mix in 10 drops of sweet orange oil. Apply on the feet and massage it in.

      Another way to use orange oil for swollen feet is to add it into foot bath. Take warm water in a wide basin and add a mixture of 2 tablespoon sea salt and 10-15 drops of orange oil. Immerse the feet in the water for 20 to 30 minutes.

      For facial edema, add a teaspoon of sea salt to a cup of warm water and stir in 5 drops of sweet orange oil. Dip cotton balls in the mixture and place under the eyes and on the cheeks

      19. For disinfecting surfaces
      Being an antiseptic oil, orange oil can be used very effectively to clean frequently used surfaces like kitchen counters, cutting boards, cutlery and dining table. In fact, it is a common ingredient in many cleaning products. However, commercial products may contain many undesirable substances that are better avoided in food preparation and serving areas. Make your own disinfectant solution with orange oil.

      Add 10 drops of sweet orange oil to a cup of water and use a clean sponge to wipe the surfaces with this mixture. Allow to dry naturally. Since orange oil is non-toxic, you don’t need to rinse the surfaces again. You can fill a spritz bottle with the mixture and spray on surfaces as you wipe them down. You will have a kitchen that is clean and smells great as well.

      Door handles and knobs are usually full of germs because of many people transferring germs to these surfaces. They are a main cause of contagious diseases. Wiping them down with orange oil cleaning mix can keep their numbers down. This is particularly important during the cold and flu season.

        SUPPLEMENTS

        LifeGive™ supplements are formulated by and made exclusively for the world renowned Hippocrates Health Institute, and meet the Naturally Occurring Standard (NOS) set forth to distinguish between naturally occurring vitamins and nutrients, and those that contain any level of synthetic vitamins and nutrients. All of the Hippocrates LifeGive Supplements undergo rigorous verification to be certified as NOS, and contain no synthetic nutrients added directly or indirectly. 

        The LifeGive Supplement line was born approximately 35 years ago out of a desire to readily make available plant-derived supplements. Vitamins from naturally occurring substances have a relatively low potency level, simply because the body can so easily absorb the nutrients. Low potency vitamins from naturally occurring sources will produce effective nutrient activity while positively affecting immune function and overall health.

        BECOME SKIN & BEAUTY RANGE BY LIFEGIVE

        Originally LifeGive focused on providing the highest quality nutritional supplements to support healing and health from the inside-out; now with the BECOME range, and in recognition of the skin as the largest living organ in the body, LifeGive can support health from the outside-in.

        Feed your body through your skin!

        Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician, once said “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” The BECOME line is full of edible, wholesome, nourishing ingredients, and is formulated to support not only beauty, but systemic wellness, the natural outcome of internal and external equilibrium.

         

        NOURISHMENT

        We make beauty-food

        We asked the public simply, “would you put in your mouth what you put on your skin?” The skin is the beginning of a secondary digestive system - much of what our skin is exposed to, we take in with an incredible rapidity, straight to our bloodstream and lymph. In sight of this, it is of course important to scrutinize the purity and safety of all personal care items (especially those which are applied and left on such as creams, lotions, deodorants, etc.), but it is also an opportunity to feed the body! BECOME is full of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, omega fatty acids, phytonutrients, anti-inflammatories, active enzymes and more. We feed your body through your skin.

        The majority of our ingredients are sourced from the sea. Just over a hundred years ago, René Quinton (a French biologist) published his studies comparing the ocean ecosystem with the ecosystem of the human body in a book called Seawater : Organic Milieu. In this research, he remarks that seawater closely resembles the density and balance of human blood plasma and lymph. He concluded that purified isotonic seawater carrying algae-based phytonutrients could be used to treat a number of ailments including infectious diseases. He was the first to create a saline solution for medical use. Quinton is the backbone of the BECOME chemistry. Each BECOME product is built upon a foundation of algae and seaweed extracts, most notably Laminaria, Fucus and Porphyra Algaes. These not only assist with beauty-based concerns, such as collagen-production, cellular renewal, melanin/pigmentation consistency, skin elasticity and strengthening of the connective tissue matrix (to reduce fine lines and wrinkles), but also delivers a wonderfully potent dose of antioxidants, vegetal enzymes, and minerals.

         

        TRANSPARENCY

        We are proud of our ingredients & we don’t want to hide anything from you

        Commercial competition and the capitalist fixation with profit has unfortunately brought out the worst in the beauty industry, an almost completely unregulated market. Leading companies regularly deceive consumers by mislabelling ingredients, using overtly confusing lists of unpronounceable materials with the hope that no one will stop and check. Governments do little to force honesty or public safety in this industry, so it must be consumer regulated. We support self-education in the field of self-care. We want everyone to know exactly what we put in our products because it has taken years of expertise, testing, research and sourcing to find our ingredients. We want to share! We want to sing out in celebration of the wonderful plants that fill our bottles. And we want you to feel confident that we will gladly offer any and all information we have on our ingredients with you.

         

         UNITY - our bodies are ecosystems.

        We believe that health and beauty are one system, one whole. We work with Mother Nature, not against her.

        After all, our ideas of beauty come from nature's infinite perfection. For the ancients, beauty was imagined as a refection of health and wellbeing. It was the external articulation of internal peace, prosperity, and physical equilibrium. Following industrialization, technological advancement, and the spread of mass media, beauty has become increasingly synthetic and artificial. BECOME aims to support the reuniting and reintegration of health and beauty. We honor the magnificence of the human body and support self-healing. Natural radiance will always be the outcome of true nourishment.

         

        Naming our Products

        The concept for naming the LifeGive Become products using positive words was largely influenced by Dr. Emoto's research on the effects of communication on water molecules. 

        Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered that crystals formed in water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts and words, forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors.
