Citrus Essential Oils are important foundations natural fragrance oil product development, and top ingredients include orange, lemon, grapefruit, clementine, and lime.
Natural Citrus Fragrance Oils
Lime Oil (Citrus Aurantiifolia), a pure essential oil that is characterized as fresh, citrus, and sweet, is often called Key Lime, Mexican Lime or Mexican Thornless Key Lime. A small, shrubby evergreen with dense, dark green leaves and yellow-white flowers, it is native to tropical Asia, and is smaller, thinner-skinned, and more aromatic than its cousin, Persian Lime. Several parts are used medicinally for astringents, colds, headaches, dandruff itch, and more. Lime’s crushed leaves and oils bloom with fragrance. The juicy, fragrant oil is sweeter, lighter than lemon, yet more intense, juicy, tart.
Lemon Oil (Citrus Limon), another top selling essential oil, has powerful cleansing properties that purify both air and surface. On surface, it is acts as a natural deodorizer and disinfectant that eliminates mold and bacteria. In the air, the scent of Lemon Oil has energizing and uplifting effects. Its aroma is often described as is fresh, bright, tangy-sweet, rind-like, and zesty, among others. When added to Patented Mood-Enhancing Fragrance Technologies, it can add innovation and positivity to your products.
Clementine Oil (Citrus Noblis) is characterized as sweet, juicy, orange, floral. It is the floral facets that add extra dimension to this natural hybrid of sweet orange and mandarin. Clementine are the smallest of the mandarin orange category. Top notes of refreshing sweet rind, make clementine sweeter and zestier than most citrus oils. Clementine has the strong cleansing compound, Limonene, and it is often used in acne, antifungal, and antiseptic products.
Orange Oil (Citrus Aurantium Dulcis) is derived from the “sweet” orange (dulcis) not to be confused with the bitter orange! Topically this oil is famous for its AHAs and exfoliating and skin brightening properties. Olfactively, perfumers adore Aurantium Dulcis for its fresh, juicy, sweet, mouthwatering scent. With a range of 83-97% limonene, this fragrant compound makes everything smell nice but needs perfumery talent (to balance it so that the fragrance is not too sticky, sweet, or caustic (like most citrus notes for that matter!).
Grapefruit Oil (Citrus Paradisi) rounds out the EOs citrus palette and is considered refreshing and bitter pith – that spongy white substance between a citrus fruit and its peel. In grapefruit this pith is particularly bitter and gives extra pitch and brightness to its scent. Like other citrus, the oil is extracted by “cold-pressing” the glands in the peel, and it claims health benefits including balancing mood and relieving anxiety. Topically it is known for antibacterial and antimicrobial effects – particularly important in natural “New Normal” products centered around hygiene.
