Bitter Orange oil is a citrus oil extracted from the fruit peel of the bitter orange tree (Citrus Aurantium Amara) through cold pressing. Originally from Egypt, the tree is now cultivated in various regions including North Africa, the Middle East and parts of Europe. The fruit of the tree is used in cooking and for making marmalade, and the oil is commonly used in perfumes and flavorings for food and beverages. Bitter Orange Essential Oil is believed to have several health benefits and is used in traditional medicine for various purposes due to its bitter taste and medicinal properties.

The extraction of Bitter Orange Essential Oil is accomplished through a process known as cold-pressing. This method involves mechanically pressing the peel of the bitter orange fruit to release the essential oil contained within the citrus peel. In the cold-pressing method, the peels are placed in a specialized pressing machine. The machine exerts pressure on the peels, effectively breaking open the oil glands and releasing the oil. The released oil is collected and separated from any residual solids or liquids. The resulting Orange Essential Oil obtained is typically rich in aroma and retains the natural properties of the bitter orange peel. The oil is then carefully stored in suitable containers to preserve its freshness, potency and quality.
