Orange essential oil, cold-pressed from the rinds of oranges, has a juicy aroma reminiscent of the fresh fruit. Orange oil offers a sweet, peaceful aroma that can fill a room with a sense of peace, harmony, and creativity.
Orange is delightful on its own, or you can combine it with complementary oils such as Lemon, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Cinnamon, Neroli, or Patchouli.
Since Orange Vitality combines well with other fruity flavors, it is the perfect addition to smoothies, drinks, and NingXia Red. Or hydrate and experience the burst of flavor by adding a few drops of Orange Vitality oil to your water.
You can also use Orange Vitality in sweet or savory dishes for added flavor and zest. Orange provides the perfect acidic contrast to sweet baked goods.
