In a cream or lotion
When used in a cream or lotion, Orange Sweet oil can assist the lymphatic system, helping to detoxify a congested skin. Although it is a good general skin tonic, it is great for older and more mature skin, dealing with dermatitis, acne and soothing a dry irritated skin. The general tonic action seems to stem from the action it has on supporting collagen formation in the skin, which is required for a healthy, young-looking skin.
