The bitter orange is believed to be a hybrid between a pomelo and mandarin. It originates from Southeast Asia and has a variety of different names - sour orange, mamalade orange and seville orange to name a few.
The bitter orange tree gives us more than one type of essential oil - its flowers produce neroli, its leaves produce petitgrain, and its fruit produces this essential oil.
Bitter orange essential oil is known for its energising properties, making it a favourite for those seeking an energy boost, especially after recovering from mild illnesses (such as the cold & flu). It contains antiseptic and antibacterial properties, and may help with digestive and gut health. It has been use in traditional Chinese medicine for millenia.

Like many citrus essential oils, bitter sweet essential oil is phototoxic, so best avoid direct sunlight if using topically.
