The orange oil is normally safe but again, you should avoid sunlight after applying as it may cause phototoxicity. If it is consumed in large amounts, the oil may result in vomiting and nausea. Consult with a professional before using the oil if you’re pregnant, epileptic or have other medical problems. If you are using the orange oil for therapeutic needs, be sure to dilute it with a base oil or lotion and do not use the essential oil in high concentrations as it may cause dermatitis or skin inflammation.
