Orange Sweet Oil 5X (5 fold) essential oil is a sweet concentrated essential oil cold pressed from the peel of Citrus sinensis var.Dulcis and then vacuum distilled to concentrate the aromatic compounds. The difference in fragrance, from the standard oil, is significant. Orange Sweet 5X Essential Oil is much sweeter than the traditional pressed orange essential oil which is sweet and sightly tart. This 5X essential oil is, essentially, five times stronger in the Orange fragrance so a little goes a long way.
Orange Sweet 5X oil, like the other citrus essential oils, is a great choice for oily and congested skin conditions where it will assist in drying the excess oil without over drying and causing the skin to create more oil in an attempt to re-balance the skin. It will also have an astringent effect on the skin making it suitable for hair care applications.
Orange Sweet 5X oil is a great choice for cleansing products as everyone finds this oil pleasant. Blends nicely with all other citrus essential oils, most of the wood essential oils and it will lend a nice lift to florals. When blending with this oil it is best to keep it at under 1% of the total blend for bath and body care. This is fantastic combined with Vanilla CO2 and is one of the most popular scrub fragrances.
