Blood Orange Essential Oil

(Citrus aurantium dulcis)


Our Blood Orange Essential Oil (Citrus aurantium var. dulcis) from Italy has a fresh, revitalizing citrus scent that we find richer and deeper than regular sweet orange essential oil. Blood Orange is a wonderful addition to many all-natural perfume compositions and it blends well aromatically with many other essential oils; especially cardamom, clove and rose.  Just like Sweet Orange, Blood Orange offers anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and mood lifting benefits.

Blood Orange Essential Oil

The beautiful and exotic Blood Orange from Italy is a special variety of Sweet Orange that produces a distinctively colored fruit with crimson-tinged flesh. The essential oil that is extracted from the Blood Orange peel has similar properties and uses to regular Sweet Orange Essential Oil but its fresh, citrus aroma is often described as deeper and richer than that of “regular” Sweet Orange Essential Oil.

The distinctive color of the fruit of the Blood Orange is said to be due to the presence of anthocyanins, which are antioxidant pigments common to many flowers and fruit, but uncommon in citrus fruits. In order for the fruit to develop its striking color, the nighttime temperatures must be fairly low. In some cases, the rind, as well as the flesh, will exhibit the dark coloring and in general, the rind of the blood orange is tougher and harder to peel than that of other oranges. Blood oranges have a unique flavor compared to other oranges, being distinctly raspberry-like in addition to having the familiar orange taste.

The Blood Orange tree is loved not only for its fruit and the intensely aromatic essential oil produced from the fruit rinds, but also for its attractive appearance in warm-climate landscapes where it’s notable for its verdant green foliage and stunningly scented white flowers that have a long season of bloom.
