Sweet orange is a beautiful uplifting and calming oil. It creates a happy, relaxed feeling and works as a mood lifter, which is perfect for people who suffer from depression or chronic anxiety.
It serves as a detoxifier, boosts immunity, treats constipation and dyspepsia, and is very good for maintaining healthy, smooth, and glamorous skin. It also helps cure acne and dermatitis. Being a carminative means being an agent that helps in the removal of excess gas from the intestines. Gas forms in the intestines and moves upwards and can result in chest pain, indigestion, and discomfort.
As always, with all citrus oils, be mindful of their skin sensitizing action -- always use in a carrier, and never with direct sun.
