Sanatio Naturalis Award-Winning Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis) is a pure therapeutic-quality aromatherapy essential oil, and is cold-pressed from the rind of the Italian sun-ripened oranges.
Our Sweet Orange, grown in Calabria and Sicily, in southern Italy, boasts a unique and sunny quality. Fruits are harvested between November and February, when the oils are at their best. Every orange is expertly harvested by hand, cut at the stalk using special hand-secateurs, ensuring the optimum condition. We worked directly with the producer, a family business, founded in 1926, the traditions, skills, expertise and cultivation techniques have been handed down from generation to generation, now at the fourth generation.
