Orange trees, medicinal plants
Orange trees have been grown in Asia for 4500 years, first by the Sumerians, then by the Egyptians. This shrub can reach a height of 10 metres. Sweet oranges have been eaten since the earliest times. It was only later that we discovered the use of its extracts, such as neroli and orange blossom. What a wonderful discovery.
How orange essential oil is made
Extracts of their flowers, leaves and fruit are used in phytotherapy, and essential oils distilled from the flowers (Neroli essential oil), leaves and young twigs (petitgrain essential oil) and fruit peel (orange essential oil) are used in aromatherapy.
Sweet orange essential oil is obtained by cold pressing the zest of the sweet orange fruit.
An essential oil for your immune system
Sweet orange, which is very rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, is a real ally in boosting the immune system. Derived from the skin of the fruit, it is bursting with antioxidants, and is also renowned for regulating sebum in cosmetics. Sweet orange gives a pleasant, subtle, fruity fragrance.
