Other benefits includes improving mood, improving dental hygiene, removing toxins from the body, preventing excess water from accumulating in the body, improving skin appearance, protecting the heart from thrombotic illness, promoting healthy hair and promoting digestion.
Orange oil does not only have a zesty, fresh, tangy scent Orange (Citrus sinensis) essential oil is a time-tested remedy going back thousands of years. The people of China, India, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean have used orange for easing coughs and colds and for cleansing and purification rituals.
Immune enhancer – Limonene, which is a monocyclic monoterpene that’s present in orange peel oil, is a powerful defender against oxidative stress that can negatively affect our immune systems. Orange oil even has cancer-fighting abilities, since monoterpenes have been shown to be very effective chemo-preventive agents against tumor growth.
Antibacterial – Essential oils made from citrus fruits offer the potential for all-natural antimicrobials for use in improving the safety of foods. Orange oil was found to prevent the proliferation of E. coli bacteria in one 2009 study published in the International Journal of Food and Science Technology.
Anti – fungal – A research study reported in 1996 investigated ten different essential oils against 12 fungal strains. Orange was one of the oils tested. Researchers found orange to be effective against all 12 fungal strains.
Skin care – Because orange oil is such a wonderful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial, it is especially good for the skin. From teenagers with acne to dry, aging skin, orange has a role to play. It helps to eradicate bacteria, boosts collagen, decreases skin wrinkles
Anti depressant – A small Japanese study reported in 1995 on 12 depressed human patients had impressive results. The researchers noted the citrus aromatherapy was quite effective, and stated “…the doses of antidepressants necessary for the treatment of depression could be markedly reduced. The treatment with citrus fragrance normalized neuroendocrine hormone levels and immune function and was rather more effective than antidepressants.”
Anti anxiety – Orange oil has also been proven to be uplifting and tranquilizing. Aromatherapists and natural health practitioners have used orange oil as a mild tranquilizer and natural antidepressant for centuries.According to Advanced Biomedical Research on 30 children they found that the children had reduced cortisol levels and pulse rates when receiving the aromatherapy, and this led to decreased anxiety.
Cancer fighting – D-limonene, which comprises over 90 percent of orange peel oil, is a monoterpene that has strong chemo-preventive activity as it’s been shown to reduce tumor growth in many animal studies. Research suggests that monoterpenes block mammary, skin, liver, lung, pancreas and stomach cancers.
