    NOW Foods makes terrific natural oil products, and I have two that I particularly count on: the peppermint oil, which is great for repelling mice and spiders in winter, and this sweet orange oil, which is super for repelling all manner of summer bugs including mosquitoes, bees, ants etc. My method of application is to pour some of the orange oil onto a cotton ball or paper towel, and then rub liberally on the entrance door bottom baffle, up the sides of the entrance door, and and on bottom of window frames, and if you have any in-house bugs, to rub it around the bottom wall borders where you have seen the bugs. A second method of application is to pour the bottle’s contents into a small spray bottle (the type you find in a store’s dollar aisle) and spray it on instead of rubbing, using a paper towel to wipe any drip lines. This oil acts as a barrier to discourage bugs from entering your home, as they absolutely hate the smell of orange oil. There is a faint orange smell that dissipates after an hour or so, and just remember to reapply after a rain for the outdoor applications. A pleasant all natural bug repellent.

    Love this for skin! Shrinks your pores :), August 16, 2013

    I love this stuff. Absolutely love it. 5 stars are not enough, I’d give it much more if I could. :-) So far I have used it to make Thieves Oil (an anti-bacterial & anti-viral scent & medicinal oil blend – I use it in place of the cinnamon oil in the recipe since cinnamon is so expensive and it comes out great) and I’ve used it to help scent homemade body oils (diluted in a carrier oil). I find it smells great mixed with several other essential oils (clove and orange smell really good to me :)) and I love the scent by itself as well.

    But my absolute FAVORITE thing about this oil is that it is making my pores shrink and my blackheads disappear. I just mix about 13 drops of the orange oil with about an ounce of carrier oil (I use extra virgin olive oil) in a small bottle, shake, and then apply a layer of it every night before I go to sleep. I started this about a week ago -and I don’t know what it is in the orange oil that’s doing this to my skin- but my skin is looking awesome with it. It also seems to help cut down on inflammation as well and keeps my face from looking ‘puffy.’ (Which, I found out that orange oil is also anti-inflammatory so it makes sense).

    This Orange Oil is quickly becoming one of my favorites in my essential oil arsenal! I have bought a lot of products over the years claiming to shrink my pores and get rid of my blackheads and NONE of them have worked on me (not even a little bit). Wish I had known about this stuff back then. It would have saved me a lot of time, money, and wasted effort. I should’ve known that God had already created something perfect for my skin. :-)

    UPDATE/EDIT: (11/30/13) Because I have had such success with this orange oil I have (slowly) switched all my face products to orange related products. While I’ve loved some orange products I’ve tried and not really loved others, I absolutely HAVE to recommend Burt’s Bees Orange Essence facial cleanser. It’s absolutely wonderful! And it has not broken out my sensitive skin at all and actually seems to be working in conjunction with my nighttime routine of using this orange oil (the mixture I make with it) each night to further the skin benefits. I also use Now’s Rose Hip Seed Oil around my eyes (straight, not diluted; some say to dilute, others say you don’t have to, but I personally have been able to use it straight just fine) and occasionally I put on a bit of vitamin e oil on top of my orange oil mixture. And once a week I use Burt’s Bees Orange scrub (it comes in a little jar and it’s a “dry” scrub -you scoop a little bit out and add a bit of water to it to make it into a scrub) and I’m telling you the truth -my pores have NEVER looked better and I wake up each morning with the best skin I’ve ever had in my life. (UPDATE: the Burt’s Bees reference ONLY applies to the old Burt’s Bees Orange Essence cleanser formula. I’ve heard they’ve sold out/been bought out by Clorox and for some reason they changed the formula (adding in some non natural ingredients) and the new formula makes my face get reddish and does NOT help in minimizing pores whatsoever. :( SO, sad to say, but I don’t recommend it anymore unless you can find it in the old yellow bottle with the old formula, which a lot of stores, like Walgreens, still have. The new formula in the new white bottle doesn’t work as well, sadly. End update).

    Maybe it’s all the vitamin C or maybe it’s just all the pure orange, but I am NOT stopping what I’m doing anytime soon. Honestly, at one point a while back (before I learned about natural face and bodycare vs. conventional chemical filled & then decided to go natural) I was using Estee Lauder’s Perfectionist CP+ serum -which, out of all the Estee Lauder products I personally tried was their very, VERY best. It made my skin look A-MAZING and I mean, IMMEDIATLEY amazing. As soon as you apply it your skin immediately looks awesome. HOWEVER, I found that when I would run out for a few days or longer my skin not only immediately reverted to its former state, but it also seemed to look WORSE than it had before. And I knew that it could have just been the drastic difference between using that product and then suddenly not and my skin looking “normal” again, but I honestly believed (and still do) that that product was NOT helping my actual skin at all and made it look worse in the long run. I believe those companies formulate their products specifically so that you HAVE to keep using them for the benefits their products give your skin. At one point I was using Estee Lauder’s Night Repair formula for eyes, Night Repair formula (general; used all over my face) and Perfectionist CP+ serum under my makeup in the morning in addition to some other little things I tried here and there. I was spending about $100 a month to maintain this. I ended up stopping both because I did NOT want to keep spending that much money AND because I felt that in the long run the products weren’t actually correcting or…

    LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT. I’m very satisfied with the purchase. The dropper was never an issue. I used a straw, dipped one end in the oil, seal the other end with my finger and VOILA! an instant dropper.
