Orange Organic Essential Oil
Botanical name: Citrus sinensis
Country of Origin: Italy
Method of Cultivation: Certified organic
Method of Extraction: Cold pressed
Part extracted: Peel of the fruit
Color: Orange
Perfumery Note: Middle/top

Aroma:  Warm, fresh citrus scent, radiant, fruity and tangy. This oil smells just like fresh orange peel, very satisfying. A regular strength, non-concentrated Orange oil made from conventionally grown fruits.

Consistency: Liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Refreshing and rejuvenating. Its aroma inspires and brings fresh energy, clears the mind. Citrus oils help to eliminate emotional confusion and increase ones sense of humor and well-being. Very comforting.

In moderation, Orange is an effective skin care ingredient, but avoid large concentrations.

Orange rind and aroma is a popular ingredient in the kitchen. Orange Essential Oil can be a great alternative, but use very sparingly and from certified organic farming.

It is also a popular ingredient in household cleaners because it smells clean and aids the cleaning. Orange Essential Oil is the main ingredient in certain products like Goo-gone, and great to remove stickers from windows etc.

Please be aware that Orange Essential Oil may affect plastic and synthetic surfaces.

How to use it:  
- Use a few drops in a diffuser to freshen the aroma climate of your home.

- Add a few drops to the water when washing dishes or cleaning the house.

- Add very sparingly to food that you would otherwise prepare with Orange rind – desserts, salads, and pastries.

- Add 5 drops of AromaLand's Buddha or Calming blend to 1 oz. of unscented body care for a soothing experience.

- Citrus Essential Oils are among the few Essential Oils with a limited shelf life. Keep your citrus oils away from heat and direct sunlight and in tightly closed containers. Your fridge would be great. Try using them in 6 months after purchase. Older oils may not be appropriate for medicinal or skincare purposes, but can still add citrus-power to a diffuser blend.

- Try making your own Gingerbread honey or syrup and adding it to tea or desserts. This is not only delicious but helps to soothe the stomach as well.

The following is also a wonderful recipe for such a honey, great also for a homemade gift:

To 2 oz. of maple syrup or 2 oz. of honey add:
3 drops of Ginger Essential Oil
1 drop Cardamom
1 drop Cinnamon bark
3 drops Vanilla Essential Oil, pure
8 drops of certified organic Orange or Mandarin Orange oil

 

Blends well with: Citrus Essential Oils blend well with a lot of different oils, "lifting" a blend to make it appear more energetic and lively. Lavender, Neroli, Ylang Ylang, Rose, Sandalwood, Frankincense, Geranium, Fennel, Tea Tree, resinous Essential Oils and many others.

History: When peeling a citrus fruit, you may experience the Essential Oil freely spraying from the peel when applying pressure. Squirting the Essential Oil into a candle flame is a nice winter activity that fascinates children, and those young at heart.

Before the juice of citrus fruits is processed, the peel of the fruits is carefully removed and the Essential Oil extracted from the glands that are located in the outer layer of the peel. This is the process behind the term "cold pressed" and it is obvious that any chemical deposits applied to the skin of the fruit during conventional farming may leech into the oil. If you are using citrus Essential Oil for skin care or cooking, we strongly recommend our certified organic citrus Essential Oils.

Rose Bulgarian Essential Oil Information
Botanical name: Rosa damascena (Rose otto)
Country of Origin: Bulgaria
Method of Cultivation: Grown under certified organic conditions
Method of Extraction: Steam distilled
Part extracted: Flowers
Color: Slightly pale yellow
Perfumery Note: Middle/Base

Aroma:  "Rosy": Floral, rich and sweet, graceful and delicious. Bulgarian Rose is finer in character than Moroccan Rose, and more tender. It is the most valued Rose oil today.

Once you have smelled the genuine Rose Essential Oil you will never again be willing to accept a synthetic rose fragrance as replacement. Whereas the Rose plant has produced an aroma out of many hundred components, synthetic scent merely reproduces the most dominant ingredients, missing out on the subtle refinement of genuine Rose oil.

The potency and incredible fragrancing power of Rose Essential Oil make it a great investment, even though it is one of the pricier oils. If you find it hard to dose the pure oil correctly (it is incredibly strong and intense!), or shy away from the cost, start with Essential Oils blended with Jojoba oil, classified as "i/J" ("in Jojoba").

Consistency: Slightly viscous liquid, more solid if cold.

Aromatherapy properties: Balancing, relaxing, inspiring, comforting. Rose symbolizes passion,  romance, sympathy and luxury. Great skincare properties, refining the structure of the skin and balancing its functions. Its mildness, as well as its cooling and astringent properties makes it great for nurturing the sensitive skin surrounding the eyes (as always, properly diluted!)

Rose opens the heart, and has brought calming comfort to many births. It is a very feminine aroma that is frequently used in Aromatherapy to improve a woman's well-being.

How to use it: Add a few drops to a diffuser for a relaxing, feminine aroma climate.

- Add 5 drops to a hot bath for a blissful retreat.

- If scenting AromaFree body care or plant oils, use 3-4 drops per 1 oz. of product. Alternatively, use up to 10 drops of Cherry Blossom, Dry Skin, Mature Skin or Sensitive Skin blends from the AromaLand line of therapeutic blends.

- You can also create your own Rosewater by adding 3 drops of 100% Rose Essential Oil to a spoon of honey and blending it with 1 oz. distilled water. Keep refrigerated. This is superior to the rosewater you can buy in the stores, since those are frequently made with synthetic rose fragrance and contain large amounts of preservatives. Remember to use it soon, since it will eventually spoil. Rosewater is great in desserts and pastries. When you want to use it as a natural skin toner, make sure you don't use too much honey or leave it out altogether, fill the rose water in a mister and shake a few times before using.

- If you are purchasing this Essential Oil blended with Jojoba, increase the number of drops you add to your bodycare or bath according to your liking. You can use oils blended with Jojoba in a diffuser, but it is not recommended in diffusers that work with cotton pads – Car diffuser, Scent ball, Spa Scenter – or nebulizers. If using an aromalamp or AromaLand's Aromashell it will leave an oily residue that can be washed away – but do not overheat the lamp dish..

 

Blends well with: Most oils. Very suitable to make an aroma more round and complete.

To create a romantic mood, try blending it with the other great aphrodisiacs - Sandalwood, Patchouli, Vetiver, etc

History:  It takes 60,000 rose blossoms, picked in the early hours of dawn as they are unfolding, to gain 1 oz. of Rose Essential Oil. The harvest is rushed to the distiller and the oil crafted immediately.

The origin of the Rose can be found in ancient Persian gardens, and Persians were the first to distill Rose water from the petals. According to legend, the Rose Essential Oil was discovered when Nour-Djihan, a Persian princess, married Mogul Emperor Dhihanguyr.

The canals around the wedding party had been filled with rose water (imagine!!), and as her and her lover enjoyed the waters in a small boat she noticed a thin film on its surface – Rose Essential Oil.

Its aroma has been interlaced with human history ever since, lending its radiance and grace to perfumes and inspiring poets and lovers.

Other related AromaLand oils:
Rose, Moroccan – Not steam distilled but solvent extracted, this Rose absolute was harvested from Rose centifolia ("hundred petal"), and has a less royal, yet very beautiful scent.
Rose Geranium – With a distinct rose-like note, Rose Geranium is frequently used to simulate or support the Rose aroma in a blend. Just like Rose, it is a great skin care ingredient.
Palmarosa - Another plant from the Cymbopogon family. However, the scent of Palmarosa is more reminiscent of Rose Geranium, and it is sometimes called "Indian geranium". It can be used to support the Rose aroma.

Rose Moroccan Essential Oil Information
Botanical name: Rosa centifolia (Rose absolute)
Country of Origin: Morocco
Method of Cultivation: Conventionally grown
Method of Extraction: Solvent extracted
Part extracted: Flowers
Color: Orange to dark orange
Perfumery Note: Middle/Base

Aroma:  "Rosy": Floral, rich and sweet, well-rounded and delicious. Moroccan Rose is extracted via a solvent, which yields approx. 6-7 times more oil and results in a lower price. Some aromatherapists are concerned that the solvent extraction may compromise certain components of the oil. Since the solvents are completely removed after extraction, and produce a very beautiful, esthetic oil, many do not think that Rose absolute is inferior to steam distilled oils.

To the contrary, the absolute contains additional aromatic components that are not present in a distilled oil.

Once you have smelled the genuine Rose Essential Oil you will never again be willing to accept a synthetic rose fragrance as replacement. Whereas the Rose plant has produced an aroma out of many hundred components, synthetic scent merely reproduces the most dominant ingredients, missing out on the subtle refinement of genuine Rose oil.

Method of Cultivation: Conventionally grown
Method of Extraction: Cold pressed
Part extracted: Peel of the fruit
Color: Yellow-Orange
Perfumery Note: Middle/top

Aroma:  Warm, fresh citrus scent, radiant, fruity and tangy. This oil smells just like Mandarin Orange, an aroma that is reminiscent, yet lighter than Orange. However, Tangerine is more candy-like and energetic.

Consistency: Liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Refreshing and rejuvenating. Its aroma inspires and brings fresh energy, clears the mind. Citrus oils help to eliminate emotional confusion and increase ones sense of humor and well-being. Very comforting/soothing and warming..

In moderation, Tangerine is an effective skin care ingredient, but avoid large concentrations due to phototoxic reactions.

Tangerine Essential Oil can be a great discovery in the kitchen. Use very sparingly in sauces, dressings, pastries and desserts. We recommend certified organic Mandarin orange.

How to use it:  
Use a few drops in a diffuser to freshen the aroma climate of your home.

Add a few drops to the water when washing dishes or cleaning the house.

History: Sometimes Tangerine is listed as a synonym for Mandarin Orange. The aromas however are distinctly different, with Tangerine being more candy-like and temperamental. As a fruit, Tangerine is larger than Mandarin Orange and rounder, with a yellower skin.

When peeling a citrus fruit, you may experience the Essential Oil freely spraying from the peel when applying pressure. Squirting the Essential Oil into a candle flame is a nice winter activity that fascinates children, and those young at heart.

Before the juice of citrus fruits is processed, the peel of the fruits is carefully removed and the Essential Oil extracted from the glands that are located in the outer layer of the peel. This is the process behind the term "cold pressed" and it is obvious that any chemical deposits applied to the skin of the fruit during conventional farming may leech into the oil.

Part extracted: Flowers
Color: Dark orange
Perfumery Note: Middle/Base

Aroma:Very floral, rich, sweet and warm, exquisitely exotic. Similar to Jasmine, yet more intoxicating.

The potency and incredible fragrancing power of this Essential Oil make it a great investment, even though it is one of the pricier oils.

Color: Yellow-Orange
Perfumery Note: Middle/top

Aroma:Vanilla-like. Rich, sweet, balsamic, comforting and yummy.

Vanilla Essential Oil can be a great discovery in the kitchen. Use very sparingly in sauces, dressings, pastries and desserts.

- Add sparingly to food for an exciting, authentic Vanilla flavor – desserts, salads, and pastries.

- Add a few drops to a jar of sugar… Vanilla sugar adds finesse and aroma to pastries and is great to be sprinkled on fruit etc.

- "Vanillarize" honey, syrup, black tea or coffee!

 

Blends well with: Its comforting aroma adds warmth and softness to any blend. Very delicious with citrus oils, spices, but blends well with most anything.

History: After a few years of reduced harvests, the price of Vanilla Essential Oil has sky-rocketed, and is now comparable to the precious oils. This of course has caused most vanilla products to now contain synthetic vanillin instead of the real thing. However, the difference in quality is stunning, and you will grave the complexity and roundness of real Vanilla, once you experienced it. We can only hope that a sound harvest will end this dilemma for all of us vanilla addicts.

History: Wintergreen and Sweet Birch oil, both nearly identical in chemical composition and aroma are both traditional folk remedies. This tradition has led to the discovery of Methyl Salicylate, its main ingredient, as a pain reliever. Methyl Salicylate is now commercially produced and known under the name Aspirin et. al.  However, the use of both Wintergreen and Birch is potentially toxic, and recommended for professional use only. Because of the familiar, candy-like aroma there have been cases of children ingesting this oil. Commonly used in chewing gum, toothpaste, root beer, coca-cola and candy.
