Freshen up your space with Oranges

Niki Nagy

Ways to use oranges

Place oranges in decorative bowls around the home, for freshness and vibrancy. Clear out the home by placing peels of one orange in a spray bottle, 20 drops of orange essential oils and water. Open the windows and doors for 15 minutes and walk around, spray the essence to rejuvenate you and your home. This is called “Changing the QI of the home” [1]. Start with the entrance and move around clockwise. Use this technique seasonally to clear your space.

Natural room spray

Create your own room freshener with one cup of water, two tbs of lemon juice, and 5 drops of orange essential oils which enhances the longevity of the spray.

Furniture polish

Mix 5 drops of orange essential oils and quarter cup of olive oil into a bowl, dab with a cloth onto the furniture and then take a clean cloth to wipe any residue.

There are many ways to freshen up your space, however I find this technique works the best as I feel a sense of freshness and vibrancy when I use oranges in the space. I have two display bowls of oranges in the kitchen which I always stock up on.
