There are ten oils specifically that have the largest impact on the growers, distillers, and communities from which they are sourced – Wild Orange is one of those ten oils.

About Wild Orange

The fresh, citrusy aroma of Wild Orange is invigorating, crisp, and brings an energizing vibrancy to your day. This top-selling oil is cold-pressed from the peels of meticulously sourced oranges to obtain the cleansing and uplifting properties so distinct to doTERRA’s beloved Wild Orange.

Wild Orange essential oil is packed with antioxidants and purifying properties, making it ideal for supporting a healthy immune system and providing the body with a revitalizing boost. Which is why it’s a key ingredient in many of doTERRA’s most popular blends, including the On Guard Protective Blend and the Citrus Bliss Invigorating Blend. 
Much of the widespread appeal for Wild Orange comes from its nearly limitless variety of uses. You can add a few drops of Wild Orange Essential Oil to your water in the morning to give you an energizing burst of fresh citrus to brighten up your day. Wild Orange is also a popular favorite for diffusion because of the energetic atmosphere it creates with its uplifting and crisp aroma that will be a subtle dose of sunshine for any home, office, or car.

doTERRA Wild Orange essential oil can be used as a multipurpose surface cleaner because of its purifying and cleansing properties. Dilute several drops with water in a spray bottle and then spritz it to freshen up stuffy closets, a basket of towels, freshly laundered sheets, stale bathrooms, playrooms, and anywhere else in your home that could benefit from the clean, refreshing citrus aroma of Wild Orange.
When you combine the power of Wild Orange with other essential oils, such as Peppermint and Frankincense, you can create an invigorating and mentally stimulating combination that will boost your mind and body for whatever challenges life throws your way. Begin every day with a Wild Orange sunrise and feel how the light will power you through the day with energy and peace. 


My Experience with Wild Orange

Wild Orange was the first essential oil I was exposed to. A lady at an expo came up to me, placed a drop of Wild Orange and Peppermint in my hands, and told me to rub my hands together, cup my hands over my face, and take a deep breath in. I immediately felt myself relax and this goofy smile come across – this always happens when I smell citrus essential oils. The relaxation I felt in my body was something I had not felt in a very long time, and this peaked my interest and made me want to learn more. I was at a time in my life where I was stressed, overworked, and on the verge of a lot of health conditions. Just by inhaling the aroma of Wild Orange I started to have a little bit of hope which led me to researching the science behind essential oils, how they could support the body, and bring the body to homeostasis. Wild Orange was essentially a gateway oil for me that made me want to know what else was possible with essential oils.

A school in southern Brazil, attended by many children of doTERRA’s citrus farmers, was destroyed by a fire. The economic struggle of the 2020 pandemic put a strain on this community to raise fund to rebuild the school for their children to have a school to attend when the new school year started in January of 2021. The community was able to raise some funds of their own for the reconstruction of the school, doTERRA’s Healing Hands Foundation supported the community with the remaining funded needed to rebuild the school. Students were able to return to school beginning in January 2021. This is just one of many things doTERRA does for the communities of their producers.
