Orange is derived from an evergreen tree. It is smaller than the bitter orange tree, and less hardy with fewer or no spines. The fruit itself has a sweet pulp with no bitter membrane. Orange Five Fold Oil is more concentrated than the regular citrus essential oils. The increased concentration of the essential oil fragrance makes the oil perfect for soap and candle making. It is believed that sweet orange was brought to Europe by the Arabs in the First century along with the bitter orange.
