Pick of the week 3!

Episode 3

Protagonist: Orange essential oil

Boom booom bombastic!✨✨✨✨

Going back to the essential oils I wrote few months ago, I would like to introduce you to this MUST HAVE esential oil.

Anxiety is a common problem for parents with children when going to the dentist. This feeling is often associated with an uncertain psychological distress. What the dentist its going to do or not? ..Will they hurt me? ..

It seems that the use of orange essential oil could reduce salivary cortisol ( body’s main stress hormone) and pulse rate in children,

Can I use this oil for myself? ( as above says is for children..)

yes, yes, yes. In despite that most of the researchs have been done in kids, this powerful oil can also be used by adults, and it is one of my favourites.

Effects?

Lift your mood, reduces stress and anxiety

Since what age is useful the use of orange essential oil?

from 24 months old onwards

How can be used?

  • Difussion/spray: you’d like lift you child mood prior her/his dental appointment? or perhaps to add the refreshing scent of orange to a room? Diffusion can help you do that! A diffuser allows an essential oil to evaporate. As evaporation occurs, the scent of the essential oil spreads throughout the room. NOTE: make sure the space you are in is ventilated well!
  • Massage oil: consider making your own massage oil. To do this, you’ll need to dilute orange essential oil in a carrier oil, like coconut oil or jojoba oil. The NAHA suggests using 20 drops of essential oil per ounce of carrier oil to make a massage oil with a 3 percent solution.

What should i never do with a orange essential oil?

Avoid swallowed, spilled onto the skin or splashed into the eyes.

IMPORTANT: If you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking prescription medications, speak to your doctor before using orange essential oil.

What to look for?

  • Check the label for the scientific name: Citrus sinensis. Bitter orange essential oil is another oil with a very similar name: Citrus aurantium. Don’t confuse the two.
  • Verify product purity. You should be buying 100 percent orange essential oil. If this isn’t the case, it should be indicated on the label.
  • Choose dark bottles.
  • Smell the oil before you buy, if possible. If it doesn’t smell like orange, don’t buy it.
  • Stay away from any product that claims on its label or through advertising that it can treat a specific health conditions. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t regulate essential oil like it does medications.
