Refreshing and uplifting
Sweet orange oil comes from the peel of the sweet oranges (Citrus sinensis). Its refreshing aroma is used by aromatherapists to boost the spirit and to help boost the immune system. We use it for its cheerful, sweet scent that immediately lifts your mood, and for its toning qualities.
We use Brazilian sweet orange oil and West Indian wild sweet orange oil, extracting the oil through cold pressing. The sweet orange is a flowering tree with glossy, evergreen leaves and thorny branches, and it is probably native to China and the Far East. They now grow all over the world and some of the main producers are Brazil, United States (predominantly Florida and California), Spain and Italy. It produces beautifully fragrant white flowers and juicy, orange-coloured fruits, a type of berry called hesperidium. Both oranges and orange blossom are seen as symbols of good luck, prosperity and fertility.
