All About Orange Single Oil

Orange essential oil can work wonders. Whether you’re using it to just make a room smell better or as a way to maintain your good health, this oil may be able to help you.


If you love eating oranges, but don’t love how sticky they can be, this might be a good option for you.

And if you don’t like eating oranges, you can still benefit from using this oil in other ways. Discover more about how pure orange essential oil may be able to help you by exploring our top recommendations for our Orange single essential oil below:

How To Use Orange Essential Oil At Home, At Work and On The Go

Use it in a Diffuser

Mix a few drops of this oil with water and let that scent diffuse into the air. If you have a bad scent lingering in the air—we’re looking at you, Brussels sprouts or burnt popcorn—try using orange. If you’re worried about harmful pollutants, using orange also may help clear the air.

Mood Benefits

Like most citrus scents, orange essential oils have an invigorating scent that helps to put a bit of pep in your step when you need it most. Dab a drop on each wrist (mixed with a carrier oil) for a natural perfume replacement or add 3-5 drops into your diffuser at home or in the office.

Make a Body Scrub

Our Holiday Sugar Scrub is fantastic for winter aromas, but if you want a more tropical scent to use all year round, an Orange sugar scrub works wonders. You can follow the same directions as the Holiday Sugar Scrub but use a few drops of Orange essential oil instead of Peppermint to make your entire home smell of citrus. Plus, this is a great way to use this oil topically and slough off dead skin while you’re at it.

Use it on Your Skin

Orange single oil is a wonderful essential oil to use topically. Using a carrier oil, we recommend that you mix 1-2 drops on the desired area of your body (around your temples, wrists, and behind your ears are great) and rub gently to release the benefits of Orange into the air and your body.


Orange oil doesn’t just have personal benefits — you also can add it to a natural wood cleanser. It’s free of harmful chemicals and can make your furniture smell great without diminishing its appearance. Mix olive oil, vinegar and orange essential oil together in a spray bottle and get to work. Try it on other surfaces as well to see if this gentle cleanser is right for your home.

Incorporate Orange Into Your Diet

When used as a dietary supplement, Miracle Essential Oils’ single Orange oil doesn’t just provide a great taste in your morning smoothie or glass of water (although it certainly does that). Its refreshing taste enhances your palate with just a drop or two required, so we recommend that you try adding it to sparkling water, lemonade, and even cocktails.
