Essential Oil Spotlight: Wild Orange


Wild Orange oil is one of dōTERRA’s most popular oils—and with good reason! Not only does Wild Orange oil have a variety of uses, but its invigorating, energizing aroma is hard to resist.

One of my favorite ways to use Wild Orange is in the diffuser. If you need a lift (or, maybe even a PUSH…), this Citrus Slush diffuser recipe will get you moving (Wild Orange is one of the main oils in doTERRA’s Citrus Bliss blend.)!


Another energizing combo is Wild Orange and Peppermint.  Simply add a couple of drops of each oil to the palm of your hand, rub your palms together, cup your hands over your nose, and inhale.  Better than a cup of coffee (and I LOVE coffee, so that’s saying a lot!)!

Combining a few drops of Wild Orange oil with water in a glass spray bottle also makes a wonderful all-purpose spray, that both cleans AND smells good! As a citrus oil, Wild Orange has cleansing properties that make it useful for purifying surfaces like countertops and tables throughout your home.

Another fun way to use Wild Orange essential oil is in cooking!  I’ve heard rave reviews about this Orange Blossom Panna Cotta with Orange Gelee!


It only takes 20 minutes to make, and serves 8.  I pinned it to my recipe board on Pinterest.  You know, along with the 50 bajillion other fabulous recipes I haven’t quite gotten around to making yet!  There is always hope, though.  And, progress, not perfection is my motto.  Simply the fact that I pinned it shows that I’m making progress, right?!
