Can essential oils cause hair color to change?

I've been adding tangerine EO to the water I use to mist my second day hair. Today I noticed that the water is actually light orange from the EO. I have dark brown hair. Will it cause any color changes or weird orange highlights?

    I don't know about Tangerine EO, but I've read several times and places that EO of Rosemary does darken hair.

    Maybe I should use EO of Rosemary to darken my hair when the summer is over instead of getting it dyed my natural color.

    I was thinking I might try using rosemary EO to hide my gray roots so that I can dye my hair less often. Not sure about the smell though...
