Blood Orange oil offers a juicy, fresh, orange aroma that is much sweeter than Sweet Orange oil. Blood Orange is considered a variety of Sweet Orange and shares the same botanical name, Citrus sinensis. The dark, flesh ‘blood’ color is due to the presence of anthocyanins, a type of antioxidant pigments common to many flowers and fruits, but rare in citrus fruits.
