History: Oranges originated in Asia, and their therapeutic value was first recognized there as a means to stimulate the digestive system.

"Sweet orange oil helps to move stagnant Qi and ease tension and frustration. Its warm, sunny, sweet aroma conveys joy and positivity, dispersing moodiness and irritability... More specifically, sweet orange oil is ideally suited to the efficient, hard-working individual who strives for perfection and achievement, but who has little tolerance for mishaps and mistakes... Sweet orange oil helps us take a more relaxed approach, encouraging adaptability and the smooth handling of events." Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit, by Gabriel Mojay, page 103
