About the Plant:

The bright and cheerful Blood Orange grows on evergreen trees in warm areas of America and other sub-tropical regions in the world. The orange evergreen trees grow to be about 30 feet tall and have shiny, smooth, and oblong leaves with beautiful white flowers. The redness in the pulp comes from a pigment called anthocyanin, which is an antioxidant, something rare for the citrus family. The fruit has sweet pulp and non-bitter membranes and is enjoyed for breakfast, snacks, and works as flavoring all around the world.

Where it Grows:

Blood Orange is native to Spain and Italy. Blood Orange thrive in Mediterranean climates such as Italy, Spain, and Malta. California, known for having Mediterranean-like climate, produces Blood Oranges as well. Amrita Aromatherapy is proud to have Blood Orange Essential Oil from Italy, from the island of Sicily.

Traditional Uses and Lore:

The Chinese doctors have used oranges for palpitation, scurvy, jaundice, bleedings, heartburn, relaxed throat, and indigestion for centuries.* In the rest of the world, the orange wasn’t commonly used therapeutically, because it was considered rare and expensive. However, around the 17th-century, people started using it medicinally.* These days, Blood Orange is used for food flavoring, fragrance in body care products, as a flavor in pharmaceuticals, and in liquors.*
