Sweet orange essential oil botanical name is Citrus Sinensis and is cold pressed from orange peel from Canada. It has a thin consistency with a medium aromatic scent that is sweet and citrus. That smells as much like the orange peels it is derived from, but only in a more intense and concentrated form. Some aromatherapists have reported that a small percentage of people have experienced dermatitis from the limonene content of sweet orange. Orange Essential Oil is considered photo-toxic and exposure to sunlight should be avoided.
