PORTRAIT

You can’t help but smile when you breathe in the bracing fresh citrus aroma of sweet orange essential oil. Known for its antidepressant properties, it works to encourage your own optimism and openness to conquer life’s challenges. Sweet orange normalizes the intestines, so it can be good for diarrhea, constipation, and other digestive issues. Inshanti also carries the tart blood orange oil.
