Orange (5-Fold) Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil
Botanical Name: Citrus sinensis
Plant Part: Fruit Peel
Extraction Method: Cold Pressed
Color: Dark orange to golden brown liquid
Strength of Aroma: Medium
Aromatic Scent: Orange Five Fold Essential Oil has a sweet, citrus smell much like the orange peels it is derived from, only more intense and concentrated.
Orange is derived from an evergreen tree. It is smaller than the bitter orange tree, and less hardy with fewer or no spines. The fruit itself has a sweet pulp with no bitter membrane. Orange Five Fold Oil is more concentrated than the regular citrus essential oils. Through extended distillation, terpenes are removed from the oil, rendering them more suitable for cosmetic applications.
Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants. The oils capture the plant's scent and flavor, or “essence.” Unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence. Essential oils are obtained through distillation (via steam and/or water) or mechanical methods, such as cold pressing.
