essential orange oil

>> 1.20.2010

i love the smell of a freshly peeled orange!
i also ♥ that orange oil is so versatile + can be used for the body, the mind and the home. speaking of the home, did you know how easy it is to make essential orange yourself? learn how after the jump...

step 1:
dry orange rinds + once dried, run them though your coffee grinder until super fine.
step 2:
completely fill a small dark colored bottle with orange flakes.
step 3:
slowly add carrier oil until it reaches the top {i use olive oil}.
step 4:
cap + let it set for 2 weeks.
step 5:
strain using a coffee filter.

use a capful in your wash to help clean + deodorize your clothes... add a couple drops to a pot of water + steam your anxieties away... mix with water + spray around your kitchen counters to keep those pesky ants away!
