Description of Orange Essence Oil
Unlike all other types of orange oil, Orange Essence Oil is distilled from the juices of sweet oranges, rather than their peels. This process creates an incredibly intense sweetness, with a zesty tang that heavily resembles the fruit’s own flesh. This juicy oil is used for a variety of orange-flavored products, from soft drinks to sherbet to hard candies. Its intense citrusy odor also makes it a staple of old-fashioned colognes and male perfumes, as the fruity nuance of its sweetness pairs exceptionally well with more aldehydic ingredients.
