INCI: Citrus sinensis (Orange) Oil
Blood oranges are amazing! They are beautiful to look at, and they are yummy to eat. I once took a drive to get blood oranges because they were not in our local market. That drive was 100 miles!
Blood oranges can have hints of color on the peel or lots of color. Some blood oranges have hints of red inside, and others mostly red flesh. Blood oranges do have a different odor and taste versus Valencia or Navel oranges what we tend to get from the markets. You should try this oil! It smells so wonderful! The aroma is fresh, uplifting, and certainly a benefit to anyone suffering from the winter doldrums.
Oil is cold-pressed.
Lip Balm Use
We find Blood Orange to be a yummy lip balm flavor.
Use 0.3 to 1.5% in lip balm. For a batch of lip balm that makes 50 tubes (.15 ounces each) or 25 jars (.25 ounces each) use from 1 to 4 grams. This converts to approximately 1 to 4.5 milliliters if you would rather use a pipette. We generally like about 2 to 2.5 mL.
