Botanical Name: Citrus sinensis

Main Constituents:
Limonene: 98%

Plant Part: Fruit Peel

Origin: Italy

Processing Method: Cold Pressed

Description / Color / Consistency: A light, oily orange to reddish-orange liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: Blood Orange (Sicily) essential oil has a warm, fresh citrus scent that is tangy. It is a middle note of medium aroma.

Blends With: Lavender, Lemon, Clary Sage, Myrrh and Nutmeg and Clove Bud.

Product Abstract: Citrus sinensis is a middle-sized evergreen tree, covered with bark of a greenish-brown color, having auxiliary spines on the branches. The leaves are alternate, ovate-oblong, acute, shining green, the stalk more or less winged. The blood orange has streaks of red in the fruit, and when squeezed the juice is often reddish. Its red pigment, anthocyanin, is an antioxidant that is rare in the rest of the citrus family. A recently hybridized orange, it was cultivated in China and the southern Mediterranean in the early 18th century. The three which are widely cultivated today are the Moro, Toracco, and Sanguinello.

Cautions: Blood Orange Essential Oil has phototoxic properties and exposure to the sun must be avoided after application to the skin. Due to the presence of bergaptene in this oil, please consult a physician prior to using it. Dilute well before use; 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.

I love this EO. All the refreshing uplifting aroma of fresh orange but with a deeper tartness that makes it less generic and more exotic. I use this EO for my dish soap....making it the only good thing about doing the dishes. :)

Blood Orange EO is exactly as advertised. Smells like the inside of a freshly peeled orange rind. It's a very nice citrus note that everyone can recognize but doesn't overpower, like Lemongrass or Citronella. It also lacks the saccharine sweetness of Mandarin. Makes for a great go-to citrus note.

This blood orange blew me away compared to a different brand of orange oil I had purchased at my local health food store. I use my oils for aromatherapy and diffusing and wish I had bought a bigger bottle of this one.

Out of the bottle it smells great, like fresh blood orange rind, tangy with a bit of sweetness. I happened to use this essential oil in a lip balm recipe with chocolate, and the smell is amazingly delicious! I will be placing an order for a larger bottle soon, can't wait to try this in my scrubs, lotions & soaps :)

Some would say this oil smells very similar to that of sweet orange; i thought that to myself upon opening the bottle. However, the blood orange variety is much more intense and balanced in my opinion, worth the extra because it works better in blends than sweet orange.

Deep well rounded citrus. True to the name, you know when you smell a blood orange it has that subtle something different lingering around the edges? Well this oil has that too. It's again, subtle but seems to come out more in blends rather than the bottle. This is a really nice EO. I will buy again.

Powerful,tart orange juice smell. Vivid orange liquid. Unfortunately, I didn't detect the warmth or richness I have come to expect from Blood Orange essential oil. Regardless of expectations, a very bright and true orange with a light consistency that makes it easy to dispense drop by drop.

I use blood orange EO in lotions, creams and lip balms and I LOVE it! The scent is mesmerizing, and has that wonderfully fruity citrus smell with just a bite of something indescribably awesome and sweet. Sweet orange EO has nothing on this blood orange EO in my opinion.

Blood orange has a subtle warm orange scent that differentiates it from Sweet Orange. The oil also has a reddish-orange tint to it, so it can stain if you use it as a perfume--it's also photo-toxic (makes skin extremely sensitive to sun exposure after application), so be-careful if you do use it as a perfume or in lotion. It's probably more ideal to use in cold process soaps.

WOW!!! I didn't even know that I was particularly fond of the scent of oranges until I smelled this!! It definitely smells like oranges, only it's sweeter and softer than the usual orange to me. I got the sample size and can't believe how quickly I ran out of it because of putting it in everything! Mixed with the chocolate FO, it's especially yummy!!

Very nice citrus oil. I used it with the sweet orange eo and some vanilla oleoresin and it smells like a sophisticated creamsicle. I combined it once again with the sweet orange eo, some labdanum eo, and some ginger eo and it smells sooo good in my cp soap.

I love this product. I must say, when I first got it I was skeptical when the package arrived however, the smell was so intoxicating I could not stop from smiling. This sent can be smelled through the bottle. I did not even have to open it up before I fell in love with it. I used this with the lemongrass eo in the ND body butter and I could not get enough. My daughter had me make some for her and her friends. I would have to say that this will definitely be a favorite of mine.

What a delicious oil! I have never been disappointed with any oils I've ordered from ND, and this is no exception. Opening the bottle was like zesting the orange myself! I added this to lavender for a sweet smelling deodorant blend, and also with valerian and chamomile for a sleep blend that I drop on my pillow each night.

This is an amazing EO. The scent is so uplifting and fresh. It smells like a bottle of fresh squeezed blood oranges (peel and all). I used this EO (along with clove and benzoin oils) in my first ever batch of soap, and it adds a very warm/sweet tone to the overall frangrance. This was my first order with NDA, and it certainly won't be my last. I'm super impressed with the products, packaging, and service.

As soon as I opened this bottle, I couldn't stop smelling it. I haven't even had a chance to use it in anything yet and I can hardly wait to do so. I tried to describe the smell to a family member and was stumped. It reminds me strongly of clementines but also tangerines and every variety of orange out there. And that still doesn't even begin to describe it. It's sweet and tangy and fresh and fruity and you can all take my word for it being an effective anti-depressant. And I'm still shocked by the rock-bottom price of this oil. If you even remotely like the smell of oranges, do not even bother with a small tester size of this one. :o)

WOW! I know the description lists the strength of this oil as "medium", but it's really strong! So strong that some of the most potent oils I purchased either can't stand up to it, or compete so strongly that they can't be blended. However, this is a good thing - given how far a single drop of this oil will take you, the price is even more amazing. Also, this works even better than clary sage EO as an antidepressant! (Fresh clary sage is still the best, but this oil really gives it a run for its money)! Very, very impressed with this oil, which is richer than sweet orange, but still incredibly bright!
