Aromatherapist notes: I love using sweet orange essential oil. The Blood Orange essential oil is very similar to Sweet Orange in aroma, but distinctly more vibrant. So much so that when I ordered "Sweet Orange" from my distiller this year in Italy (that is what they call it in Southern Italy) and found out it was Blood Orange, I HAD to keep it. It is one I will never again be without.
