Wild Orange Essential Oil

Wild Orange

This oil is cold pressed from the rind (peel), it is sourced in the Dominican Republic. It has a sweet, fresh citrus aroma. I love diffusing this with Peppermint in the morning and it is what I always diffuse during my classes. Everyone loves Wild Orange, it is a great essential oil to share with others.

How we use Wild Orange

Not only do we diffuse it a lot. I love dropping it in the toilet and drains after cleaning. It smells so good after sitting there all day. My kids love coming home to a uplifting smell after a long day at school. This morning I used it on my oven, it is a great de-greaser and also gets stickers or sticky stuff off. I love to diffuse wild orange and enjoy a couple of drops in my water. I always have this oil with me. We have used for  anxious feelings, stomach issues, calming and relaxing before bed, and foot rubs. I have made several DYI projects, it is great in your morning smoothing, vanilla or chocolate. A fun family project was making homemade ice cream with wild orange.

One of my favorite things to do with the kids is to make homemade soda's with a variety of essential oils. 2-3 drops of Essential Oils in Sparkling water with honey or agave to sweeten. You can also make tea with any essential oils of choice, just make sure they are okay to take internally. We also love a drop of citrus oil of any kind in our fruit salad
Wild Orange

Cooking and Baking with Wild Orange
So many recipes to add this oil too, from fruit salads, chocolate drops, chocolate wild orange truffles, cranberry dressing, a drop in your water, french toast, breads, salad dressings, smoothies, stuffing, anything you would put orange in. I love being creative with the oils in the kitchen. It is rather refreshing to drop a few drops in just a glass of water for healthy immune support.

Other great oils for cooking are cinnamon, thyme, oregano, cumin, cardamom, Ginger, Lemongrass, Basil, Lemon, Marjoram, Rosemary, Lavender, Fennel, On Guard, Rosemary, Cilantro, Coriander, Bergamot, Cassia, Clove, Grapefruit and black pepper.

Diffuse, Diffuse, Diffuse
Wild Orange is also recommended to diffuse well with Clary Sage, peppermint, Cinnamon, Frankincense, Geranium and Lavender. I must say I have not tried the Clary Sage yet, but I am going to. Putting a few drops of Wild Orange in your diffuser to purify the air and feeling of energy.

We all struggle with sleep at times. I hear too often from other people, they can't get the mind to stop thinking. I saw this recipe and had to share it and I am making this blend today for a friend. Happy Sleep everyone. I got this recipe from doTERRA Platinum Oils.

A few drops of wild orange with Fractionated coconut oil, topically for a soothing massage. We use with the unscented hand and body lotion when we volunteer at the Abbington
Senior living to give the residence hand massages.

Wild Orange has the ability to purify and refresh. As well as supporting a healthy immune system function. This is a great oil for digestive support, feeling anxious, withdrawal, fear.


Wild Orange is the oil of Abundance. It inspires abundance, creativity and supports a positive mood. It also reconnects you with your inner child and brings, fun, joy and playfulness into one's life. It reminds our soul of the limitless supply found in nature. There is always enough to go around. So apply or diffuse some wild orange, start sharing, playing, relaxing and enjoying the bounties of life. This is the true gift of this essential oil.
