Create your own synergistic essential oil blend by blending Orange essential oil with other similar oils such as Geranium, Chamomile, Marjoram or Lemon. If you like scents that are similar to Orange, try mixing other citrus essential oils into the blend. Grapefruit and Petitgrain makes a great choice.
