Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, yellowish orange to golden brown liquid.
Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A middle note with a medium aroma, Orange Essential Oil has a sweet, citrus smell like the orange peels from which it is derived, but more intense and concentrated.
Product Abstract: Orange is derived from an evergreen tree. It is smaller than the bitter orange tree, and less hardy with fewer or no spines. The fruit itself has a sweet pulp with no bitter membrane. It is believed that sweet orange was brought to Europe by the Arabs in the First century along with the bitter orange.
Cautions: This essential oil may contain phototoxic properties and it is suggested to avoid exposure to the sun after application to the skin. Dilute well before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Rating: This is the best Sweet Orange ever....very cost-effective with such an invigorating fragrance that I use for perfumes and healing products. It's outstanding!
By:J.alexandra, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Jun-2006
Rating: I previously bought the 5 folds version, a good one however it is steam distilled at the end of the process which destroy most of the vitamin C. So, I decided to go with the "Natural Blend" as it is only Cold Pressed and therefore should preserve the vitamin C potency. Just by the smell and the color I can already say it is more like the orange fruit I'm used to and I beleive I will stick with this one from now on and it is also cheaper than the 5 folds so I can buy a larger container to fulfill my needs !
Highly recommended !

Rating: Uplifting, clean and fresh this oil blends with so many others to make a wonderful scent in cp soap. My favourite combination is sweet orange, and grapefruit with a bit of patchouli to anchor it.
By:Rose, Haileybury, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Mar-2014
Rating: I love the smell of this essential oil. I use it in cleaners, laundry detergent, soap etc. Just wondering if it is phototoxic. I would love to use it in mineral sunscreen.
Great product!! I love ordering from new directions

Rating: Beautiful scent, it is crisp, airy, slightly floral, and fresh. There is not a single sweet orange essential oil that exceeds this one. I use it in my bath bombs and customers go crazy! I have experienced no acceleration in my CP soap, however, it does not have the staying power as some other essential oils do, again this is difficult to achieve with citrus essential oils because they are so volatile. Overall, I strongly recommend this product for its diverse capabilities and the wonderful smell.
By:Ilina, Pembroke, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Jul-2017
Rating: Very nice, sweet and fresh. Got the 500 ml and do not regret it. Fills up a whole room with sunshine and thirst for orange juice.
By:Luc, Gatineau, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Aug-2017
Rating: To me, this is the best orange scent ever. Even when I mix it with other EO or FO, you can recognize this amazing orange scent. Works great in CP soap and foaming bath butter.
By:Julie, St-Paul-De-L'île-Aux-Noix, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Aug-2014
Rating: This by far is the most juicy-orange smelling oil I have tried. Little goes a long way and using too much makes it smell too sickly sweet, but when used right, it's definitely a fantastic oil! It's not too thick out of the bottle, has an orange tint, and smells delicious with cocoa butter. Like orange chocolates!

Rating: All my customers love this oil............. and I do too.
By:Tim, Canfield, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-Mar-2016
Rating: I am updating this to 5* after a few months of use. My 500ml bottle perhaps just needed to be shaken, as that seems to have resolved the dilution issue. The price is unbeatable, and this oil blends well with EVERYTHING. I have used it to tone down the scents of other EOs I am using for therapeutic value but dislike the scent - frankincense, roman chamomile, sweet marjoram, clary sage... etc. The aroma of this is not that much different from the sweet orange dark or the blood orange, and the price can't be beat.
By:Stephanie, Lethbridge, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Sep-2015
Rating: I purchased this and the Sweet Orange Dark to compare. This one has a light orange pulp scent to me. More dilute and not as sharp as the dark orange. I have been using it in my scentball, and it is an uplifting fragrance, but more dilute and not as pungent or punchy as I was expecting or wishing. I prefer the dark orange sweet. Am also going to give the blood orange a try next order.
By:Stephanie, Lethbridge, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Sep-2015
Rating: you cant beat the price! smells like fresh juicy oranges :)
By:Victoria, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-May-2013
Rating: Great value! This is a fantastic oil, smells amazing! I use it in all of my cleaning products and it works well with patchouli to sweeten the deal. :)
By:Zachary, Chalk River, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Jul-2014
Rating: This product smells amazing! I use it in my hand soaps and foams! I also use it sometimes in my coconut oil to massage with! Great product!
Rating: Smells just like you have started to peel a large orange. Fresh and energizing scent. Previously purchased a 100mL bottle and now placing in an order for 1L. Has the color of Orange Juice (not very shocking). I use small amounts in liquid soap and find that the scent carries really well. As others have said, it is a softer scent so you need to use more of it than other EO's when combining so that it is not over powered.
By:Taylor, Calgary, Alberta
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Feb-2013
Rating: Smells so yummy, just like fresh orange peel. You really can't go wrong with the price. I bought the 500 ml bottle and use it in everything. I mix it with lavender and use it in my linen spray. The scent is super relaxing and it is also great in cleaners. It tends to float on top of water, even when I add a lot of vodka to the mix, but you can always shake well before using it. I don't think that the scent is super strong though, you need add more than other EOs to get the same effect. Still an amazing product.
By:Sylvia, Surrey, British Columbia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Sep-2014
Rating: This was part of my first purchase at NDA, and i'm so so so satisfied wit this EO, it smells like a super juicy orange, it literally made me drool. Can't wait to use it (in probably everything haha!)
Rating: Used this EO for 9LB batch of Cold Process. We made a swirl bar using titanium dioxide for the white and liquid orange for the orange part. The EO is a very nice orange color so you can't get "white" but more of a cream color which worked well. About 4 hours under insulation we checked on the bars and they were super heating so we pulled off all the insulation which cooled them down nicely after about an hour. It was VERY close to a volcano under the surface. Today we cut the bars and they smell and look AMAZING! Hoping the scent sticks around after a few weeks. I will update this review at that time.
Rating: This is an amazing price for value. It is best when blended with other citrus smells, as I find it tickled my nose a bit when I first purchased it, however it has aged so well, and now smells like peeling a fresh orange on it's own.
By:Stephanie, Coquitlam, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-Nov-2013
Rating: This is 1 of my new favorite
This os oil smells out of this world (good job guys)
Rating: The smell is great but I think it's not as concentrate as other essential oils I tried before. I had to put the whole bottle (15ml) to have the results that I want.
By:Julie, St-Hubert, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Aug-2014
Rating: One of my absolute favourites. Love its smell and together with a few drops patchouli dark and some more drops of the frangipani FO, water and witch hazel makes an awesome air freshener - I absolutely LOVE it!
Rating: A great citrus aroma that adds such vibrance to a mix. Candy like at first but once that fades a crisp effect that smells like a freshly peeled orange sparks.
By:Catalin, Salmon Arm, British Columbia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 02-Aug-2012
Rating: LOVE this EO! Very fresh and citrusy smelling! It's my best selling scent! Have used it in body butter, scrubs, hand creme etc. Mix really well with other citrus EOs. Great product and amazing price!
Rating: Wow what a steal!! I love this EO as I use it in my body butters to make them smell like chocolate orange! The price shocked me as this was so cheap for the amount I purchased....I bought the 1000 ml bottle! Love the smell of orange...will be using this in my diffuser for sure at this price! And coming back for more!
By:Noreen, Witless Bay, Newfoundland
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Apr-2014
Rating: Bright, lively, and sweet but not overwhelmingly so. I find this oil very refreshing and uplifting. Love it in the diffuser, or I use a drop or two in my body butters and lip balms (I use orange wax and just add a bit to the orange scent, as the orange EO adds a sweeter note).
Makes a great stronger top note that softens quickly, blending beautifully with oils like neroli, cedarwood, frankincense, patchouli, to name a few. Will buy a much larger bottle next time and look forward to trying other citrus oils like Bitter Orange.
By:Virginia, Borden, Saskatchewan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Jan-2014
Rating: Smells delicious! Wonderful in my lotion bars and citrus sugar scrub :)
Rating: So in love with this oil ! It is so sweet, fragrant, smells exactly like oranges too, think os sweet fresh squeezd oranges, warm soothing and comforting, i use this in my CP soaps, and it holds up perfectly, i thought it was going to get lost after CPOP but it holds up awesome, i add a bit of NDA's cinnamon bark essential oil and it smells incredible!!!!! This is a stmaple in my house and the price is incredible !!
Rating: Love it Love it smells amazing I use it for cleaners and sometimes my soaps too!
By:Danielle, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Jan-2013
Rating: For the last 40 years my household has always contained a 500-1000ml bottle of EO Oil of Orange. It is the BEST solvent there is for paint, all kinds of acrylic and silicone glues, ANYthing sticky that repels soap and water. I'm very satisfied with the product I just received. It has a good clean citrus scent and is pure enough to have all the solvent qualities we want. Just be cautious: it will also dissolve many acrylic, vinyl, and other man-made materials. If you want to replace your old kitchen counter top, just spill some of this on it. You'll NEVER be able to repair it, and your husband will have to agree to replace it. :)
By:Maryann, Nanoose Bay, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Aug-2013
Rating: I love adding Orange EO to natural cleaning products that I make for its cleaning power and smell of course. As far as aromatherapy goes, this is very versatile for adding a citrus complexity to the final product. The price is awesome. Affordable for diffusers too.
By:Susan, Whitby, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 17-Feb-2010
Rating: The price certainly dropped since I bought my small bottle last year. I'll happily buy a bigger bottle now, it makes my house smell delicious. Very juicy and very fresh - like eating a ripe orange
By:Elisabeth, Caledon East, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 21-Nov-2012
Rating: Smells like true box of oranges from a supermarket but it disappears quickly like most citruses. Still you have to take it just for a price
By:Vladimir, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 29-Apr-2011

By:Evelyn, Vancouver, British Columbia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Jan-2013
Rating: Love this EO! Very clean and uplifting scent. I use it in my body butter and with cocoa butter it smells like a Terry's Chocolate Orange! I love to put a drop on my dishcloth and the whole kitchen smells so fresh. I will definitely buy this again!
Rating: The smell of this is luxurious and uplifting. So far I've used this in making lip balms, cleaning products, sharing with friends, homemade fabric softener & homemade fabric sheets.
A few drops go a long way in scenting our home and friends & family have noticed when walking in and are amazed that it carries throughout the house.
The price is certainly right, glad I stocked up with the deal NDA has now.
Five stars just doesn't seem enough!!

Rating: Smells amazing, will purchase again, Thanks New Directions :)
Rating: I have been using this oil since starting my business 5 years ago. I use it in my nebulizer just before a client arrives. I never have had a client complain of any kind of negative reaction because of allergies and anyone walking past my studio has always commented on how lovely it always smells. The yoga studio in the same building also started using it and the feedback is very positive. I also use it in products I make such as body creams, lip balms, soap, massage oils.
Rating: This is one of my favs...I could drink the stuff, it smells so real. Definitely will be keeping it on hand.

By:Leeann, Grand Valley, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-May-2008
Rating: This oil smells really good. The only problem I have is that you have to use a lot in order for the fragrance to come through. But it is great otherwise.

Rating: This is a "must-have' - A glorious oil which I use for so many diverse purposes. Vitamin C ++++ all the way, a very tender oil which I use in my special skin tonic & several other products.
Memories immediately flood my mind of riding in a carriage through the King's Orange groves in Marrakesh...on that warm August evening under a starry sky!
By:Jefa, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Jun-2006
Rating: I mix this oil with bergamont for a home fregrence. It is so refreshing and adds just the right amount of scent to the room. Great oil!!
Rating: I made 8 lbs of soap using 75mL of this sweet orange oil WITH added orange extract powder. I was disappointed really. The scent doesn't seem that strong at all. I should have ordered Tangerine or something.
By:Wanita, Nanaimo, British Columbia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Feb-2009

Very fresh scent, will go well with many other essential oils or fragrances.
A winning scent with most people!

By:Heather, Ottawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Dec-2005
Rating: This scent is very useful. This would go wonderfully in lip balm, or perhaps some kind of lotion. When used in perfumery however, it is very overpowering, which can be a good thing or a bad thing.
