Strolling through a sun-kissed orange orchard on a clear morning, the air is infused with the refreshing citrus aroma from the ripe oranges hanging on the trees. Each orange beckons with the temptation to be plucked and savoured. My deep admiration for oranges, particularly their aromatic essence, is no secret. Beyond being a source of nutritious vitamins, their delectable taste has always been a source of delight. Hence, when formulating my shampoo, the choice was clear: I opted for the pure goodness of natural orange essential oil.
Orange shampoo is becoming popular as a natural alternative to chemically manufactured perfume. We will discuss why oranges and shampoo are the perfect match for keeping healthier, vibrant hair and are incredibly kind to your scalp.
But first, let's introduce you more to oranges and the general benefits they provide to us.
Oranges, believed to have originated in Southeast Asia, have traversed the globe to become one of the most beloved fruits. Bursting with Vitamin C, antioxidants, and a delightful flavour, oranges contribute to our overall health and well-being.
The orange peel, often discarded, contains essential oils that can be extracted. Orange essential oil has a wealth of benefits to our hair and skin, with its mood-lifting properties and immune-boosting capabilities. The zest of oranges is transformed into a fragrant oil that finds its way into various wellness practices.
While oranges enhance our internal health, our external well-being calls for the use of shampoo. Shampoo is crucial in cleansing the scalp, removing dirt and excess oils, and maintaining a healthy environment for hair growth. The right shampoo keeps our hair healthy, strong and vibrant while keeping our scalp healthy and balanced.
So, what else does orange essential oil do for the hair and scalp?
It helps remove excess oil, dirt and product buildup from both your hair and scalp. Orange essential oil also has antibacterial properties, which can help maintain a clean and bacteria-free scalp, reducing any scalp issues.
The main benefit I have personally experienced since using my own Orange shampoo is the antimicrobial properties of orange essential oil. I have noticed that my dandruff is completely gone, and I no longer have an itchy scalp.
Lastly, enjoy the refreshing, uplifting aroma of oranges, every time you wash your hair.
Where to find Orange shampoo?
Nowadays, we are overwhelmed with the choices we have in our local shops and supermarkets. However, finding an Orange shampoo is a lot harder than it sounds. There are only a few brands that do orange shampoo.
Fewer brands choose to incorporate Orange essential oil into their products, often opting for synthetic fragrances to achieve a more intense orange aroma. While synthetic fragrances may be suitable for those seeking a stronger scent, individuals with skin sensitivities or allergies may find it safer to avoid chemically manufactured perfumes.
In my experience, finding an orange shampoo that is scented only with essential oil, is best to search online for. You will find some amazing local and small business that specialise in more natural shampoo.
The alternative is to try to make your own! I have written how you can make your very own shampoo bar here.
On that note, let's take a moment to talk about shampoo bars. If you have yet to experience them, shampoo bars are a solid form of liquid shampoo, minus the water content. They rival traditional liquid shampoos in effectiveness and are often more effective in delivering essential vitamins, nutrients, and moisture to your hair, given that the shampoo hasn't been diluted.
