About this Essential Oil
Blood Orange oil offers a juicy, fresh, orange aroma that is much sweeter than Sweet Orange oil. Blood Orange is considered a variety of Sweet Orange and shares the same botanical name, Citrus sinensis. The dark, flesh ‘blood’ color is due to the presence of anthocyanins, a type of antioxidant pigments common to many flowers and fruits, but rare in citrus fruits.
Orange trees are the most cultivated trees in the entire world. The sweet orange as we know it today isn't a wild creation, but rather a cross between a mandarin orange and a pomelo. However, according to Greek myth, for Zeus’s wedding, Juno had orange trees in her dowry. Zeus kept them in a secret garden, that only Hercules was able to reach and it was his son brought this unknown fruit to humans. Orange is loved for both its juicy flavor and citrus scent. It is said to help boost the immune system, rejuvenate the skin with vitamin C & antioxidants, and kill pathogens. This popular fruit is also known to reduce stress and enhance your mood.
