The many dynamic uses of orange make it one of the most popular essences in aromatherapy. This is due in part to it’s enlivening, uplifting aroma and versatile yet affordable accessibility. The trees serve as highly attractive foliage year-round, working as ornaments as well as fruit bearing trees. Though they take many months to mature, they have a long season of bloom with colorfully striking fruit and scented white flowers which attract helpful pollinating insects. The exact origin of the citrus species Citrus × sinensis in the Rutaceae family is difficult to pinpoint, as oranges are revered as culturally significant all over the world. In lore of antiquity, oranges are steeped in symbolism of immortality, such as the Greeks telling of legendary golden apples from the garden of Hesperides in one of the 12 labors of Hercules, which were the modern equivalent of oranges. The fruit was sacred to Venus the goddess of love who’s fruit was the golden apples, the Orange, because the experience of love is both bitter and sweet. For centuries, oranges were not eaten but rather used as medicine, most notable as a cure for cases of scurvy. It was the wealthy emperors and kings which had rare and exotic oranges appearing on banquet tables for only the most important guests, served at the table as a luxury item to display one’s wealth. Medicine workers used all parts from the water within to the dried peels in curing ailments. Sweet orange oil contains about 90% limonene, which is in many household cleaners. Because of this sweet orange oil is used as a earth friendly alternative to many common household cleaners.
