ORANGE Citrus sinensis
Oranges are the feminine counterpart to Lemons. Their sunny aroma spreads a warm glow. Orange is the most popular flavour in the food industry and likewise, one of the most popular scents in aromatherapy. It is especially favoured among beginners, since it is uncomplicated and accessible to all. Orange lifts the energy and spreads radiant joyfulness. It is an excellent room aroma. It spreads a scent of welcoming cheer at home, and could also do much to harmonize the ambiance at any place of work, making the work seem to flow easy and improve relations among colleagues. Children also love this happy aroma and mothers should utilize it to their advantage. Especially during the grim winter months the scent of Orange oil, perhaps mixed with a spice such as Cinnamon, dispels dreary winter blues and replaces it with a sense of cosy warmth. Sweet Oranges were late to arrive in Europe from China. Some sources believe that they came with Italian traders in the 16th century. In China, Oranges were used as food and medicine and regarded as a symbol of peace, happiness and prosperity.
Orange is one of the best oils to dispel listlessness, fatigue, depression and dreariness. It lifts the spirit and may inspire creativity, happiness and peace. In aromatherapy skin care it can be used for all skin types, though it is particularly useful for dry and sensitive skin. It may moisturize and refresh dull skin and help to tone and tighten aged skin. It is a good decongestant and can be used to stimulate circulation and combat cellulites. It helps to clear blockages e.g. in the lymphatic system as well as stuffiness in the head or blockages in the digestive system. It 'moves chi' as the Chinese would say.
MAGICAL Orange can be used in amulets and talisman for peace and happiness. It banishes negative thought forms, jealousy and insecurities. It can also be used in spells to harmonize relationships and may help in working through hurt feelings and lingering resentment. Orange opens the heart chakra and clears stagnant energies, latent fears and mistrust. It may stimulate the creative spirit and attract good fortune.
