Scientifically known as Citrus Sinensis, this fruit grows on a beautiful evergreen tree that can reach heights between 9 and 10 meters (30 to 33 feet).

Along with grapefruits, lemons, mandarins, and limes, oranges belong to the citrus family of fruits and have been widely propagated in countries with tropical and sub-tropical climates. One of the most renowned cultivators of oranges is Citrusmade, a sunny orchard located on the Italian island of Sicily. This region boasts the perfect climate for cultivating oranges, but it also has an advantage that sets it apart: Citrusmade is situated near the largest active volcano in Europe, Mt. Etna, which has been enriching the soil with ash minerals for thousands of years. This ash has contributed to the soil's nutrient content, making it the ideal environment for the orange trees to thrive. The combination of favorable conditions has resulted in oranges from Citrusmade that are prized for their tangy, sweet, and intense aroma.
Harvesting and Processing
Oranges have thick, leathery rinds that are green when unripe and orange when ripe. This fruit requires special care to reach its full potential. Unlike most other fruits, oranges do not continue to ripen off the tree. which makes timing the harvest crucial for obtaining the best essential oil yield. Luckily, Citrusmade has over 20 years of experience in properly picking oranges at their peak ripeness.
Orange Essential Oil is a fragrant and natural oil that is made from the peels of freshly picked oranges. The process of creating this oil involves separating the rind from the fruit and pressing it until a liquid emerges. This liquid then goes through centrifugation to create the highly sought-after Orange Essential Oil. This process is known as cold-pressing, an preserves the oil's antioxidants and active ingredients by protecting them from heat damage. Whether you're using Orange Essential Oil for its bright, refreshing scent or for its numerous health benefits, you can trust that cold-pressed Citrusmade is the way to go
