Orange Essential Oil smells fresh, sweet, and just plain happy. Orange Essential Oil is cold-pressed versus steam distilled. Because of this, it is important that you buy an organic Orange Essential Oil. Pesticides are typically oil-soluble and will find their way into essential oils that are cold-pressed. At Pink Apothecary, we like to use Orange Essential Oil mixed with Cinnamon (press link to read more about Cinnamon) as a variation of our All-Purpose Cleaner Recipe.

*** As a company, we have chosen not to sell essential oil singles. We believe a properly formulated synergy amplifies the sum of all its parts. While each essential oil is fantastic on its own, it's as a team they become mighty; we like the science of blending. Because of this, I am often asked which retail essential oil company I trust for singles. Ancient Apothecary is a brand I trust: Orange.
