Citrus aurantium dulcis is a tropical evergreen tree belonging to the Rutaceae family. The orange tree can grow up to 5-10 metres in height and has greyish-brown barks. Native to China, the orange tree is now widely cultivated all over the world for use in food, medicine, and cosmetics. The tree bears oval-shaped, glossy, dark-green leaves and profoundly fragrant, small, white flowers.
Sweet orange oil has been historically used for promoting beauty and health. In traditional and folk medicines, it was used to enhance immunity and for treating common complaints like stress, acne, skin infections, indigestion, etc. In Chinese culture, oranges are believed to bring good fortune, and its essential oil is used at merry gatherings and weddings to improve the general mood.
Ecodrop’s Organic Sweet Orange essential oil is extracted from the fruit peel of organically grown oranges, sourced from Brazil, certified organic by the UK Soil Association. Manually harvested oranges are cold-pressed to squeeze the essential oil and the juice, which are then separated and collected through centrifugation. The cold pressing method ensures minimal loss of antioxidants and other active ingredients of the oil.
