Wild orange oil is the oil of abundance. Abundance is an overflowing fullness. In this case, we’re not necessarily talking about material things, we’re talking about fulfilling emotions. Imagine if everyone around us had a heart overflowing with fullness?!
Not only does wild orange provide abundance, it inspires creativity, boosts physical energy, and creates a positive mood.
Take a moment and think back to when you were a wee little child. The smallest things excited you! How did you feel when your parents took you to play at the park? How did you feel when you saw the pretty colors of a Monarch butterfly? How did you feel when you showed your parents your first crayon-colored masterpiece? Or even something as far back as when you discovered your toes for the first time? Whatever it may be, wild orange has the ability to bring you back to that state of mind. It encourages a youthful, child-like state. In yoga, we call this the Beginner’s Mind. Looking at everything without prejudgment. Try viewing things without drawing from past experiences, simply look at the situation, concept, or object for what it is. Wild orange helps us do just this. It brings us the sensations of joy and playfulness, without referencing previous life experiences. It’s time to take a break from 24/7 “Adulting” and bring youthfulness and freedom back into your life!
“At its core, Wild Orange teaches the true meaning of abundance. It encourages individuals to let go of a scarcity mindset with all of its manifestations, including: fear, nervousness, inflexibility, workaholism, lack of humor, and the belief that there is not enough. Wild Orange reminds the soul of the limitless supply found in nature. Fruit trees, like wild orange, give freely to all in need. Wild Orange teaches us to give without thought of compensations. In nature, there is always enough to go around. Wild Orange encourages individuals to let go of their need to hoard, which is the epitome of scarcity.” (Macdonald, 41).
So as the book Emotional Healing with Essential Oils mentions above, wild orange has a great way of taking us back to our natural state aka our authentic self. In our natural state, when we are in our truest form, we have a sense of personal creativity. We can use this creativity to help us deal with all that life has to throw at us by problem solving from a place of abundance and joy rather than from a place of fear and nervousness. Wild orange teaches us to enjoy life, to widen our perspective, to see the world through an untarnished lens, and to release patterns of scarcity. Come back to your true self, start living, know that you have everything that you need, and that you are enough.

Taking it to a personal level…
Wild orange also helps us though transitional periods in our life. My roommate has Mermaid Cards, also known as Angel Cards. If you haven’t used them before, the concept is pretty simple. You sit with the person you are drawing a card for or you can draw a card for yourself. All you do is focus on the cards as you shuffle them and eventually one card will flip over or fall out of the deck. That’s your card. Your card holds the message that you need to hear in that moment. In addition to the card, there is a handy little book that provides deeper explanation of whichever card chooses you. One card in particular has popped out for me the past 2 times titled, Blessed Change. “A major life change brings you great blessings.” The card talks about welcoming change and letting go of that which no longer serves you. My spiritual purpose with past situations is now complete and I need to remind myself to stay centered in the eye of a hurricane as change and transition spiral within and around me. Whatever new opportunities and experiences arise, I know that I am qualified to handle them. Transition and change are very similar so I think I’ll start applying some wild orange, EVERYWHERE (lol). Let’s see what the universe has in store…
Does this Angel Card apply to your current life situation? If you can relate, take a moment to manifest your desired purpose in life. Let this manifestation be led by abundance rather than by fear. Try doing this after inhaling or while diffusing wild orange.
If you’ve never heard of or tried Angel Cards, I know the concept can sound a bit far out. Think of them as a version of your horoscope, but more specific to the present moment. You don’t necessarily have to agree, but it’s fun reading something that’s meant just for you in that moment of your beautiful life. 😉
Side-tracked a bit from wild orange there BUT come back and visit next week because I’ll have some fun food, health, & beauty recipes for you to try!

Read the label of the oil brand you are using and make sure you follow its guidelines because not all oils are created equal. For example, if your bottle says “do not take internally” then do not take it internally, no matter what I’ve written here. If you would like to purchase dōTERRA’s Wild Orange, click here!
