Blood Orange Essential Oil
For the invigorating benefits of citrus with a grounding tranquility, try Blood Orange Essential Oil. Cold pressed from the peel of the crimson-fleshed Blood Orange fruit, this essential oil offers a scent that’s very similar to classic orange yet richer, deeper, and less sweet.
Like all citrus oils, Blood Orange offers a burst of natural energy while helping you let go of stress and anxiety. It promotes mental clarity, relieves brain fog and burn out, enhances memory and concentration, and lifts depression. Try Blood Orange essential oil for seasonal affective disorder, jet lag, insomnia, and mood imbalances.
Blood Orange oil is also high in antioxidants like Vitamin C and limonene, which give it antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Blood Orange essential oil benefits include boosting the immune system, supporting gut health, and helping heal the body from injuries, small wounds, bug bites, and more.
When used topically with a carrier oil, Blood Orange is also anti-aging and helps give you more radiant skin. It’s also used for haircare products to de-tangle, de-frizz, and promote new hair growth. If you love making natural products, you’ll also enjoy Blood Orange as a chemical-free fragrance for DIY soaps, candles, perfumes and colognes, and more.

What is the difference between Orange oil and Blood Orange oil?
All citrus oils, including Orange and Blood Orange, are rich in antioxidants like Vitamin C and offer anti-inflammatory benefits for skin, hair, and overall wellness.

Both oils are bright and sweet, but Blood Orange oil has an aroma that is stronger, deeper, and slightly earthier compared to Orange oil.
Can I use Blood Orange essential oil for skin?
Yes! When diluted with a carrier oil or added to your regular skincare products, Blood Orange essential oil helps hydrate and heal skin for a more toned, youthful, glowing complexion. Blood Orange helps reduce acne, eczema, psoriasis, and other irritation while enhancing collagen production, exfoliating dead skin cells, and improving elasticity to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
However, please note that Blood Orange essential oil may temporarily increase your sensitivity to the sun. Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds when using this product topically.
What are some Blood Orange essential oil benefits for hair?
Blood Orange essential oil benefits for hair include reducing dandruff, slowing hair loss, and promoting new hair growth by stimulating follicles at the root. Blood Orange oil also freshens the scalp, cleanses bacteria and excess oil, de-tangles, and helps repair dry or damaged hair. You can also use Blood Orange to gently lighten your hair. Simply apply a few drops to the roots and comb outward, then spend a few minutes outdoors to add natural, sun-kissed highlights.
Is Blood Orange oil safe for dogs and cats?
