Tips & Testimonials: Orange Essential Oil

orange

Precaution: Do not use it in Styrofoam cups or plastic because it eats them since it is a citrus oil and the plastic breakdown is not good to ingest if you do use a plastic cup with orange oil. Only drink orange oil with water, in glass or metal containers. Also do not apply any citrus oil such as orange oil on the skin and go out in the sun without waiting at least 12 hours because the UV rays can react more with the skin and may cause more intense sun burn.
