Bitter orange essential oil has a citrusy and fruity aroma as you can imagine, however it smells sweeter than its name alludes to. Similar to sweet orange, its properties include: antidepressant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, aphrodisiac, carminative, cordial, deodorant, digestive, nervous stimulant, cardiac and circulatory tonic. It has been applied to combat colds, constipation, dull skin, flatulence, the flu, gums, slow digestion, and stress. Caution: considered photo-toxic, exposure to sunlight should be avoided.
I really loved this scent in my Nebulizer, it's been very refreshing , clears the air and lifts the spirits.
