Aside from its fragrant smell, sweet orange oil, extracted from the peel of the fruit, offers many benefits for hair. It is an excellent moisturizer and is well suited for those with dry, damaged, and brittle hair. Sweet orange oil is also beneficial for those with oily scalp conditions. Other benefits for hair include:
Sweet orange oil has a sweet, citrus smell and blends well with other aromas particularly lavender, bergamot, lemon, clary sage, myrrh, sandalwood, nutmeg, cinnamon bark, and clove bud.
Note: Do not use without diluting as indicated in the directions.
Because of the volatile nature of essential oils, they should always be mixed with a carrier oil such as jojoba, castor, olive, grapeseed, sesame, coconut, or sweet almond to name a few. They should be mixed at a ratio of approximately 1 - 2% dilution, which equates to 5-10 drops per 30 ml. Essential oils can be mixed with your favourite carrier oil, or conditioner, shampoo, or styling product to take advantage of their numerous benefits.
Caution: Do not apply directly to the skin. If pregnant, suffering from medical conditions or taking any medication, consult a Health Care Professional. Keep in a cool place away from light and heat. Keep out of reach of children. May irritate skin. Avoid contact with eyes.
