This wonderful essential oil is processed locally from Tulare County Valencia Orange trees. This is a little more refreshing than the regular "Sweet Orange" essential oil available in stores, but works the same. Valencia oranges are harvested in the summertime around here - there is nothing more refreshing than biting into a Valencia orange on a hot, valley day. Orange essential oil is a great addition to your essential oil collection. Because it is so refreshing, it is often used in bath products (see bath product section for shampoo and shower gel). Some of our customers just love the scent and use it in potpourri, candles and household cleaning products. Orange essential oil can be safely used on the skin at 10 drops per ounce of carrier oil. Never apply any essential oil to your skin unless it is properly diluted. Just because they're natural, doesn't mean they are safe: DO NOT INGEST ANY ESSENTIAL OIL!! FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY AT SAFE DILUTIONS!!
