Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil (fraction)
Fraction of Citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel oil. Oranges (Citrus x aurantium) are a species of citrus tree grown around the world for their fruit. There are many varieties of bitter and sweet oranges, and they are commonly used in herbal medicine, fragrances and cooking. Orange essential oil is often produced as a by-product from the juice industry by cold-pressing the rind of the discarded fruit. Further distillation can then be undertaken to produce pure D-limonene.
