Orange oil is an essential oil extracted from orange seeds. This oil is high in vitamin C and antioxidants such as palmitic acid and carotenoids. The carotenoids in orange oil protect the skin and fight inflammation. You can use the oil in homemade skin care products, such as face masks and anti-aging creams.
You can use sweet orange essential oil:
- Against bags under your eyes. Massage a few drops of orange oil under the skin of your eyes.
- To exfoliate dead skin cells and hydrate your skin, make a body scrub with epsom salts as your base. Then add five to six drops of sweet orange essential oil.
