This essential oil is cold-pressed from the peels of bitter oranges, capturing the fruit's vibrant, tangy essence while preserving its full spectrum of aromatic compounds. Renowned for its invigorating scent and versatile properties, Bitter Orange Oil has been a cherished ingredient in traditional medicine, culinary arts, and perfumery.
