There are many Orange Essential Oils, just as there are many varieties of oranges! We like Valencia Orange Essential Oil because of its distinctive scent, and we believe it can stick a little longer in Cold Processed Soap (3%). This said, all Orange Essential Oil is bright, but delicate (10 fold orange is a little different). There are few people who do not instantly recognise the bright, sweet and tangy aroma of freshly cut oranges.
Humans have been distilling Orange Essential Oil since the 1500's, and cold pressing Orange Essential Oil since the 1600's, so there is a good precedent for it’s consistent use throughout history!
