Orange is an excellent remedy to raise the spirits and encourage a festive atmosphere! It brings a light-hearted sense of well being. According to aromatherapy practitioners, inhaling essential oil molecules (or absorbing essential oils through the skin), transmits messages to the limbic system (a brain region responsible for controlling emotions and influencing the nervous system). Sweet orange essential oil is shown to promote the production of collagen as well as increase the blood flow to the skin. It is helpful at soothing dry, irritated skin as well as acne-prone skin. It is an anti-septic and inhibits microbial growth. As an anti-inflammatory, it provides relief from both internal and external inflammation caused by infections. It is also helpful in treating swollen tissue by stimulating blood circulation.
Regular use of these soaps provide amazing benefits to all skin related issues such as, sensitive, troubled or normal skin, fungal infections, acne, oily, congested, bites, stings, softens and hydrates.
