Botanical Name: Citrus sinensis

Main Constituents:
Limonene: 98%

Plant Part: Fruit Peel

Origin: Italy

Processing Method: Cold Pressed

Description / Color / Consistency: A light, oily orange to reddish-orange liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: Blood Orange (Sicily) essential oil has a warm, fresh citrus scent that is tangy. It is a middle note of medium aroma.

Blends With: Lavender, Lemon, Clary Sage, Myrrh and Nutmeg and Clove Bud.

Product Abstract: Citrus sinensis is a middle-sized evergreen tree, covered with bark of a greenish-brown color, having auxiliary spines on the branches. The leaves are alternate, ovate-oblong, acute, shining green, the stalk more or less winged. 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 three which are widely cultivated today are the Moro, Toracco, and Sanguinello.

Cautions: Blood Orange Essential Oil has phototoxic properties and exposure to the sun must be avoided after application to the skin. Due to the presence of bergaptene in this oil, please consult a physician prior to using it. Dilute well before use; May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Just received mine! Really really like it! It has a little something different and special compared to the regular orange oils.

Unlike some reviewers I can detect a raspberry-esque top note and I find this most certainly distinguishable from the other orange EOs.

This blood orange smells basically indistinguishable from the Sweet Orange and Sweet Orange Dark. I purchased 500mL in all 3. I was hoping for a richer more complex fragrance. It's delightful and uplifting and smells gorgeous... but so do the other 2 oranges at cheaper price points.

I find this pretty interested. Used it in a bath salt which most of my customers loved.

I have no preference for this one over the Orange 5 Fold, other than I like the "uniqueness" of this being Blood Orange EO... Works really nice in lotions though, and in CP. I don't find it accelerates, but does almost lend a bit of an orange look... I would say it lightly discolours.

Doesn't smell the same as regular Citrus or Orange EO. Much more 'mature' smelling and stronger. Mixes well with Clove or Cinnamon Bud May accelerate trace in CP soaps

A warm, soft scent that I prefer over the orange sweet EO. It makes a distinct top note for my diffusers. Uplifting and cheerful.

Love the smell of a hot blood orange and it looks great colour as long as you don't stain something. Blood oranges themselves are rather expensive and this is a good way of getting that aroma

I love it but maybe someone can tell me, in CP soaps it's hard to fix it ? As I see in the reviews it seems it's not a problem for most of you so I wonder why.... But for the smell of this EO I just fall in love with it, that's why I'm sad that I can't use it in my soaps...

Blood Orange is nice mixed with other oils in diffusers and soaps. Only a few drops is needed.

Blood Orange EO has a very warm, softer scent than the other orange scents. Reminds me of marmalade jam and the colour of the oil is intense orange, gives soaps a nice golden tone. Wish I had bought the larger size! Great job ND on providing so many selections.

This citrus oil is very similar to sweet orange essential oil, which most of us are familiar with. However it is sweeter and feels a bit darker or warmer than the popular sweet orange. It's definately worth a try!

Beautiful Blood Orange! Another one of my favorites used in so many blends/synergies. A bit warmer than the typical sweet orange but really wonderful! You can't help but smile when enjoying the aroma.
