1.  Wild Orange is known in the Emotions and Essential Oils book by Daniel McDonald as the Oil of Abundance, paired with a citrine crystal above (the crystal of abundance) it creates a powerful manifestation combo. Try putting a drop or two of Wild Orange in your purse or hand bag, add Ginger to the combo to enhance abundance and prosperity even more.

“At its core, Wild Orange teaches the true meaning of abundance. It encourages individuals to let go of scarcity mindsets with all of their manifestations, including: fear, nervousness, inflexibility, workaholism, lack of humour and the belief that there is not enough. Wild Orange reminds the soul of the limitless supply found in nature. Fruit trees, like orange, give freely to all in need. Wild Oranges teaches individuals to give without thought of compensation. In nature, there is always enough to go around. Wild Orange encourages individuals to let go of their need to hoard, which is the epitome of scarcity.

Wild Orange also assists an individual’s natural creative sense. It inspires limitless solutions for problems and issues. one never needs to fear. Wild Orange invites the individual to completely let go as a child does and to live from their authentic Self. In our authenticity, we are abundance. Sharing, playing, relaxing and enjoying the bounties of life- these are the gifts bestowed by Wild Orange essential oil.”
