Sweet Orange is one of the most valuable essences to use for digestive complaints including nausea and vomiting, especially of biliary-type; constipation, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and possibly weight loss through its effect on fats.
Sweet Orange also has an affinity for the lymphatic system, bringing it into balance, which explains its success as a natural diuretic.
