INCI Name: Citrus sinensis (Blood Orange) Oil
The distinctive dark flesh color of Blood Oranges is due to the plentiful presence of a certain kind of healthful antioxidant pigments called anthocyanins. These antioxidant pigments, though common to many flowers and fruits, are almost exclusively found in just Blood Oranges amongst all citrus fruits. Anthocyanins, however, are odorless, water-soluble flavonoids that do not appear in the essential oil.
Owing to its potent anti-oxidant properties, Blood Orange Essential Oil is an excellent aid for the skin as it can help fight the signs of ageing such as wrinkles and fine lines, and reduces the appearance of scars and spots. Blood Orange Oil can also help cleanse away germs and support a happy, healthy immune system. Its antibacterial, antiviral, and antiseptic properties make it a popular choice for hand soaps, body and face washes, and DIY household cleaners.
Blood Orange Oil is valued by aromatherapists for its invigorating and yet calming aroma. The essential oil of Blood Orange exhilarates the senses and inspires a positive outlook. It is a very uplifting essential oil that may help with combating situational depression and anxiety.
