Sweet orange has a wonderful citrus aroma and blends well with many other oils. For instance, mixing it with cinnamon bark essential oil can extend the efficiency without sacrificing therapeutic value. Since the concentration needed for health benefits is very tiny, using a high quality but less expensive oil to stretch the cinnamon or cloves is practical. On its own, sweet orange is carminative and bactericidal. It blends well with others citrus oils as well as members of ginger family and nutmeg.
Sweet Orange blends well with spices such as Cinnamon Bark, Clove Bud, and Nutmeg as well as with other citrus oils such as Bergamot, Lemon, and Lime. It is also often mixed with floral and fruit oils like Geranium and May Chang.
