Sharing the same botanical name, Citrus sinensis, Organic Blood Orange is by all accounts similar to Sweet Orange. However, this one has a distinguishing blood-red pigment caused by flavonoids called anthocyanins. It's a naturally occurring pigment compound found in apples, cherries, raspberries, and other red or purple fruits and vegetables.
In addition to the splotches of red, some people find Blood Orange to have a more appetising and tart aroma, preferring it out of all the orange scents. Imagine walking into an orange grove and devouring oranges right off the tree. The smell you get from this experience is comparable to that of Blood Orange!
Therapeutically, it contains the same properties as the other orange variants. It can bring you out of a pensive mood, make your house smell amazing, enhance your skincare routine, keep mosquitoes and flies at bay, and so much more!

Organic Orange Blood Essential oil is KidSafe when diluted. Caution: Do not use undiluted on the skin. Keep out of reach of children. If pregnant or under a doctor's care, consult your physician. External use only.
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
