Travelling traders from Persia introduced oranges to the Roman Empires in 100 BC, and orange trees found a happy new home in the warm Mediterranean climate of southern Europe. Living Libations Sweet Orange is organically grown in Sicily where the oil-rich peel is cold pressed to extract the purest, sweetest essence.
This sublime Sweet Orange Essential Oil is rich in lively limonene that is a robust free radical scavenger. High levels of limonene also contribute to the oil’s lively scent that refreshes and brightens the skin and brings sweet smiles to sullen faces. When combined with Sweet Basil, Sweet Thyme, Rosemary, or Blue Tansy it shines as a serum for acne-prone skin.
This GRAS oil can be added to by the drop to your favorite culinary dishes or confections, and it brings a dash of brightness to household cleaning solutions.
“The essential oil of orange is sweet, warm, sensuous, radiant, and alive. The oil is wonderful when we take things to seriously and forget how to laugh… it conveys warmth, happiness, and refreshing light-heartedness. As a nerve tonic the oil helps to calm, relax, and regenerate.” - Susanne Fischer-Rizzi, Complete Aromatherapy Handbook
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.
