|Orange Essential Oil is a yellow to orange liquid. The sweet orange tree is an evergreen native to Asia that can grow up to a height of 35 feet. It produces abundant, fragrant white flowers that are followed by the familiar round orange fruit. However, since it can take up to a year for the fruit to fully form, there are often blossoms and fruits on the tree simultaneously.
The name is possibly derived from the Arabic word narandj, which means "orange." According to Greek mythology, oranges were the "golden apples" that were brought into the Garden of Hesperides.
In China, the orange is a traditional symbol of prosperity and good luck. It has been widely used for centuries in both foods and perfumes.
