This Stuff Is Orange Oil with Wax
on February 21, 2014
Don't get it. I buy alot of oils. I buy real essential oils, as well as the cheaper fragrances. This oil is cut real bad with some kind of waxy substance, and who knows what. If you warm this oil to use as aromatherapy and make the house smell nice, it will do that for a short while, then after the initial scent breaks down, you end up with a rotten orange smell. The worse part is the mess it leaves behind in the warming dish.
The oil has alot of wax or some other type of substance that gets left behind. Whatever they use to cut this with is very nasty and not what I want to be breathing. Now, I can't explain all these positive reviews on this, but there is a reason this big bottle sells for so little. It's not real, and not even close. If you want real orange oil, uncut, look elsewhere. If people are not warming this, then they have no idea what other unknown substances are added to this. For those that have left a good review on this product, I would say, you either work for this company, or you have not put this in a warming dish. Try heating this and then let us know what you think. You will find a heavy waxy buildup in the dish, and that is not what we need in our lungs.
This company used to sell decent oils, but has now taken the fast path to making their money, and they are now not worth dealing with. This is about the 5th time they have sold me an oil that either smelled nothing like it should or an oil that just smelled rotten. If you want great fragrances, get them from Eternal Essence oils. Their Orange/Cream oil is great! And it's only $3.00 for 10mm. And, if you want real essential oils, try Ananda Apothocary or the Perfumers Apprentice. Now is adding nasty stuff to their oils and I will not buy any of their stuff again. I do not work for any oil company and all my suggestions are my own based on my own experience.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Last night I added just 3 drops of this oil to my 7 year old granddaughters bath water. She instantly had a very bad skin reaction and jumped out of the water crying. Her legs were red and itching and burning from this oil. I had to run cold water and wash this off her and apply skin cream to cool it down. It was terrible, and I caught he-- from her mom. I have used many fragrance oils in my bathes, and never had this happen. Do not use this in any soap or creams for your skin and/or any bath water and do not apply this to the skin directly. It's possible I got a bad batch, but why chance it, and especially with the kids? I give up on this company NOW completely! Whatever they are cutting this oil with is now more then just nasty, but dangerous!
