About the Plant
The popular fruit, Orange, is one of the most cultivated fruits in the world. The bright cheerful oranges grow 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 fruit has a sweet pulp and non-bitter membranes that is enjoyed for breakfast, snacks, and used as flavoring all around the world. It takes around 1,000 peels of oranges to make about 20 ounces of this essential oil. Imagine how much orange juice you could squeeze with that many oranges!
Where it Grows
Sweet Orange Essential Oil is native to China. It is cultivated especially in America and the Mediterranean region.
The Sweet Orange that we know and love today arrived in Europe from China in the 16th-century (other books say different dates) with Arabian travelers and later to the Americas and West Indies by Christopher Columbus. The Chinese doctors used orange peels for coughs, colds, and anorexia. In the rest of the world, the Sweet 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, Orange Essential Oil is one of the least expensive oils on the market and used for many different emotional and physical conditions!
