"Commercial orange oil from large-scale citrus plantations is almost invariably tainted with intolerably high concentrations of known and unknown pesticides... True organic orange oil of exquisite fullness is produced according to biodynamic agriculture in Europe."
~ Kurt Schnaubelt, Advanced Aromatherapy
"The oil is wonderful when we take everything too seriously and forget how to laugh – when we feel tense, nervous and withdrawn. Orange essential oil conveys warmth, happiness, and refreshinglightheartedness... Orange oil is a wonderful parfum d'ambiance, ideal for use in the house. Its influence on mood is positive and joyful; it harmonizes feelings and awakens creativity."
~ Suzanne Fischer-Rizzi, Complete Aromatherapy Handbook
"The young girl stood beside me. I saw not what her young eyes could see: A light, she said, not of the sky Lives somewhere in the Orange Tree."
~ John Shaw Neilson
How do we love thee, orange tree? Let us count the ways.
Our hearts and noses are filled with gratitude for the many aromatic gifts of the generous orange tree. The hypnotic floral fantasy of Neroli is produced by steam distilling the orange tree’s fragrant white flowers, and opulent Orange Blossom Absolute uses a solvent extraction method on those same fragrant flowers to capture a richer, thicker, and more viscous essence that has incredible tenacity in perfumery. Twiggy-tangy Petitgrain oil is a steam distillation of the orange tree’s leaves and stems, and it is perfectly poised to refresh the senses, revive the skin, and reinvigorate the spirit. Cold-pressed orange peels release bright and sunny Orange Essential Oil used as fresh, sparkling notes in perfumes and is nearly always used as a top note. Neroli Fleurs sur Petitgrain is a captivating co-distillation of Neroli blossoms with the twigs and leaves of Petitgrain to create an enchanting, super sensual scent.
