Mmmmm Orange!

OrangeHave you fallen in love with Orange essential oil yet? If you haven’t tried it yet you will be surprised how much flavor it adds to your water, your cooking and treats!

Orange Essential Oil helps with skin complexion and wrinkles, boosts your immune system, helps with indigestion, detoxify and balances your body, it helps lift your spirits and it also helps cleanse your colon!!

My husband and I both start our mornings with a *glass of orange water, if you have not tried this it is so incredibly good! It’s really easy just add two or three drops to a glass of water and enjoy! {*This is based on the pure therapeutic quality of Young Living Essential Oils ONLY.  Other oils may not be 100% pure making them unsafe to ingest!}

I love to add a drop or two to my face cream in the morning, it smells glorious and makes my skin glow!

We also love to diffuse it because of its fresh and uplifting smell! I also just recently read that it helps with SAD (seasonal affective disorder) so we will be sure to always have orange through the winter months!

Our whole family enjoys this oil and one of our favorite treats to add this essential oil to is Orange Creamsicle Smoothies…seriously YUM! These will especially delicious in July when our Pacific Northwest weather realizes it’s summer and it gets HOT! I’ve always loved creamsicles. They are my moms favorite cold treat so I grew up with them always in the freezer, but I’ll be honest until this Orange Creamsicle smoothie recipe it had been a really long time since I had anything Creamsicle. Why? Have you read the ingredients on those packages in the store? Do you understand what you are reading? Yeah, me either! So we never buy them…oh if only we could make them!

Hello Orange Creamsicle Smoothy! This a super easy recipe with only six ingredients!

  • Greek Yogurt – 1 cup (plain) * This is very greek yogurt tasting so if you don’t like Greek yogurt which I know a lot of people don’t you can add regular yogurt or even Almond milk or Coconut milk
  • Orange Juice – 2 cups (organic or fresh squeezed)
  • Vanilla extract – 1 teaspoon
  • Honey – 2 or 3 tablespoons
  • Ice – 3 or 4 cups (depending on the consistency you want you can always add more or less)
  • And the star Orange essential oil! {please note that I’m ONLY recommending Young Living}

Add everything to your blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Add to your favorite glass and enjoy {let sit for a minute or two} You could even add some whipped cream on top!
*Fun tip – leave out the ice and make yummy homemade frozen Orange Creamsicles!

I have multiple oily smoothie recipes but this is one of favorites!

Don’t forget to add it to your next order!

Already love Orange essential oil? How do you use it I would love to hear!
