Orange is a joyful and uplifting scent - used often in fragrance and cosmetics to lift the spirit and soothe anxiety.
Its diuretic and digestive properties make it popular as a digestive tonic. Used in a massage blend, orange improves digestive functions and enhances the body's ability to digest high-fat foods, which makes it an essential oil to support slimming goals.
Sniffing the familiar scent of orange can also help to curb hunger pangs and prevent over-eating.
