Orange oil is considered to have antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and even antidepressant properties. Commonly orange oil is used in drinks and food as flavoring. Its light citrus fragrance also makes it a frequent air freshening ingredient. Orange oil is obtained by utilizing the peel in a process known as cold compression. This essential oil is also noted by Organic Facts to be a cholagogue, promoting glandular secretion while improving endocrine function. As an antiseptic agent, it is also said to alleviate septic infections caused by bacterial growth.
