Blood Orange Essential Oil comes from the Citrus Sinensis, a middle-sized evergreen tree with auxiliary spines on the branches. The blood orange has streaks of red in the fruit, and when squeezed the juice is often reddish. Its red pigment, anthocyanin, is an antioxidant that is rare in the rest of the citrus family. A recently hybridized orange, it was cultivated in China and the southern Mediterranean in the early 18th century. The tree varieties which are widely cultivated today are the Moro, Toracco, and Sanguinello. Blood Orange Essential oil has a warm tangy, fresh citrus scent. Glass bottle with tamper proof closure and removable dropper.
