Therapeutic Properties:
Analgesic: Studies suggest that d-limonene has significant antinociceptive, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant actions. It’s possible that citrus oils with high d-limonene content, such as sweet orange,might also have these actions.

Anti-inflammatory: Inhibition of 5-LOX suggests anti-inflammatory potential.

Antidepressant: massage with sweet orange oil (unaccompaniedby olfactory stimulation) can be relaxing and inspire feelings of cheerfulness and vigor.
Antioxidant: Sweet Orange oil has good antioxidant activity.

Antiviral: Although there is no research to support that Orange oil is antiviral, many Aromatherapists feel citrus oils high in d-limonene can assist with overcoming a virus. This might be due to the ability of d-limonene to activate whiteblood cells and fight infection.

Astringent: Many citrus oils, including orange, can tone the skin and reduce secretions.

Digestive aid: The scent of orange can stimulate saliva and gastric secretions. Many people find that it can relieveconstipation, cramps, irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, and vomiting.

Diuretic: It has been observed that massage with sweet orange oil can increase diuresis.

Liver support/protector: d-Limonene can increase the rate of synthesis of glutathione S-transferase in the liver. This is an important enzyme in detoxification pathways. It has been noted that d-limonene had hepatoprotective action.

Sedative: Inhalation of d-limonene has anxiolytic action, suggesting it’s involved in the calming,anxiety-relieving effects of sweet orange.

Skin penetration enhancer: d-Limonene, the principal component, enhances skin penetration.

Tonic: Sweet Orange oil has demonstrated a range of actions that can strengthen and restore vitality.

Aroma: The aroma of sweet orange oil is fresh, fruity, and very similar to the fruit’s peel. Its top note is sweet, light, fresh, andcitrusy; the middle is citrus and aldehydic; the dry-out is faint. d-Limonene, the dominant component, is responsible forthe typical zesty citrus scent, but the aldehydes play a significant role in the aroma, too.
