First method about making homemade orange oil is that it’s SO easy!
You’ll only need a few things to make your own orange oil:
- A carrier oil, such as olive or coconut.
- An essential oil, like sweet orange.
And that’s it! To make the oil, all you have to do is mix equal parts of both ingredients in a bottle before shaking vigorously for about 2 minutes (you can also use an electric mixer for this step). Once your mixture is thoroughly combined, let it sit for about 24 hours before straining out any solids and storing it in a dark glass container with a tight-fitting lid until ready for use.
The best part about making homemade orange oil is that it’s SO easy! The most difficult part of this process would be finding one of those tiny strainers—otherwise known as coffee filters—but I’m sure if you ask around on Twitter and Facebook someone will have one lying around their kitchen somewhere (or maybe even be willing to lend theirs out?).
If you’re looking to buy some already-made oils instead though? You’re not alone; there are plenty of different types available online right now! Just remember: always read the directions included with whatever product you purchase before using it so that everything goes smoothly when mixing up your next batch at home.”
If you’re feeling like getting a little more creative in the kitchen, then this method is for you. Instead of buying pre-made oils, this one requires that you make your own from scratch at home.
- Orange peel – Fresh oranges are the best, but you can also use dried peel from a store-bought orange.
- Olive oil – Use extra virgin olive oil for this recipe to ensure the highest quality.
- Lemon juice – You’ll need about 1/2 cup of lemon juice total for both recipes.
- Add half a cup of oil to a small saucepan.
- Heat the oil on low heat until it is warm, but not boiling.
- Remove from heat and add the orange peel.
- Cover the pan with a lid and allow to steep for several hours (at least 4 hours).
- After several hours, strain the orange peel out of the oil using cheesecloth or another type of strainer. Your orange oil is now complete and ready to use! Store in a dark, cool place; orange oil should last up to 6 months when stored this way!
