Bitter Orange Essential Oil
Our organically crafted Bitter Orange Essential Oil is cold pressed from the beautiful rinds of Citrus aurantium var. amara, grown in beautiful, sun-kissed orchards in India. Our Bitter Orange Oil has a citrus, fresh orange aroma with soft green and mild bitter
dry notes and woody undertones; it adds an interesting note to natural perfumery formulations.
Also known as Seville Orange and Bigarade, Citrus aurantium var. amara is a hybrid of Citrus maxima (Pomelo) and Citrus reticulata (Mandarin), indigenous to India but now widely cultivated in Spain, Sicily, Morocco, the southern US States and the Caribbean - diverse regions with similar climatic conditions.
