Folded Essential Oils: Through distillation, terpenes are partially removed from the oil thus giving it a slightly stronger scent. Some terpenes are more likely to oxidize thus removing some will help improve the shelf-life of the essential oil for soaps and candles.
Botanical Name:Citrus sinensis
Main Constituents: d-Limonene: 93.38%
Plant Part: Fruit Peel
Processing Method: Cold Pressed, then steam distilled
Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, dark orange to golden brown liquid.
Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A middle note with a medium aroma, Orange Five Fold has a sweet, citrus smell like the orange peels from which it is derived, but more intense and concentrated.
Product Abstract: 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. The increased concentration of the essential oil fragrance makes the oil perfect for soap and candle making. It is believed that sweet orange was brought to Europe by the Arabs in the First century along with the bitter orange.
Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. 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.

Rating: Just like smelling the fresh oranges at grocery store
By:Patrick, Quebec, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Jul-2019
Rating: The scent of this essential oil is mouthwatering and lasts quite well in cold process soap (anchors well with Patchouli EO) Smells wonderful in creams and body butters. I regularly purchase this essential oil.
Rating: I thought by buying the 5 fold I would be getting the strongest orange scent (and it is ) Its strong right away but it seems to quickly fade in my CP . I have yet to find a way to anchor it, unless by using a lot more of it! I wouldn't recommend for the CP soap but anywhere else it is great! Also its deep orange color can turn your soap yellow.

Rating: Can't go wrong for 100ml at this price. Smells great, like delicious free-squeezed and sweetened orange juice. But DON'T drink it lol.

Rating: i used this in my orange carrot soap and used very little, and i'm glad that i did, it has just a hint of orange scent to it, just what i was aiming for as i did not want the scent overpowering, a little really does go a long way. my kids love this one as they say it smells "Fresh Orange".
By:Janit, Souris, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-May-2013
Rating: The scent of this oil is pleasant and strong. Not as sweet as I imagined, but it's perfectly orange. It's the same scent that lingers on your fingers after peeling a fresh orange - but magnify that scent times 10! It's lovely.

Rating: I purchased the 3kg size a while ago and it's still going strong. Now i don't have to skimp on the scent. But with NDA, you don't have to skimp as most items are excellent quality and affordable. The scent is very fresh and mouth watering.

Rating: A fresh burst of citrus! Orange 5 fold is great in all b&b products. I like that the scent holds up in my soaps!

Rating: A fantasic orange scent! It's bright, sunshiney and juicy smelling. It's strong and long lasting in CP soap. This is a fabulous EO!
By:Kelli, Point Du Chene, New Brunswick Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 06-Dec-2005
Rating: I particularily like the Orange 5 fold because it is really stable in my formulations. I was able to decrease my emulsifier quantity by half because of the increased stability of Orange 5 fold compared to regular orange essential oils. Of course, it also has a fantastic scent that is exactly like the burst of scent you get when you open a fresh, ripe orange.
