Cooking with Wild Orange Essential Oil

dōTERRA’s Wild Orange Essential Oil (Citrus sinensis) has always been a dōTERRA favorite due to its wonderful citrusy aroma and its ability to uplift mood, but it is also great when added to foods and liquids as a natural flavoring.

Our wild orange essential oil is cold pressed from orange peel.

Orange essential oil can be added as a flavoring to smoothies, dessert recipes such as orange rolls, frosting, or ice cream, sauces like salad dressing or orange chicken. Wild orange essential oil can be substituted in any recipe that calls for orange juice or orange extract. Simply substitute one drop of wild orange essential oil for one teaspoon orange extract or orange juice.

Enjoy all the benefits of wild orange essential oil plus the great taste in the following summer recipe:

Orange Peach Smoothie
• 3 ripe peaches peeled and pitted
• 1 cup plain yogurt
• 1 T Honey
• 4 ice cubes
• 1-2 drops Wild Orange Essential Oil

Mix in blender and enjoy!

  1. We loved making the Orange Peach Smoothie. As always, if you don’t have the called-for ingredients, it is interesting to modify. In our case, we had only two peaches at the time, so used a frozen banana in lieu of the third peach. We also added our own home-made kefir in place of the yogurt, and left the skins on the peaches. It also was delicious and very refreshing. Thanks for great ideas!

  2. Hi!
    I like your peach smoothie and I would like to include it in a cooking tear sheet…do you happen to have a picture and may I use your blog as a reference?

    let me know either way,

  3. When I was a child my mom used to make a fruit salad of bananas and oranges. In honor of that wonderful flavor combination, I experimented with the Wild Orange oil and a slightly over-ripe banana and made a breakfast shake that I love! Here are the amounts I used which of course could be adjusted to taste:

    8 oz. Blue Diamond Almond Breeze® (or Regular Milk, Lactaid or SoyMilk)
    1 scoop vanilla Slim & Sassy ® Trim Shake powder
    1 ripe banana
    1-2 d. doTERRA® Wild Orange Oil

    Blend all ingredients at high speed in a covered blender. For a colder, summer variation you might experiment with chopped ice in the blend as well.
