So while we are cleaning, sweet orange is lifting our spirits and cleaning our home. Sweet orange is also a wonderful insect deterrent. Put on a cotton ball and place in the corners of your pantry or terrace doorways. A few drops in a spray bottle with water and disperse amongst your plants. Orange works wonders on our health as it helps with anxiety, fear, hysteria, insomnia, panic and palpitations.
