ORANGE ESSENTIAL OIL/HYDROSOL PROFILE
By Jeanne Rose ~ July 2019
ORANGE. LATIN BINOMIAL AND NAMING ~
Citrus x aurantium. Up to now it was referred to as Citrus aurantium, C.
aurantium var. sinensis, C. sinensis and C. x sinensis with the ‘C’ at all times which means Citrus. We’re discussing
the candy Orange and Blood Orange and never the Bitter Orange that was coated in
the blog-post on Neroli. The orange is a hybrid between pomelo (Citrus
maxima) as the feminine father or mother and mandarin (Citrus reticulata).
Sure, I do know that that is
the identical actual title as is used for Clementine and Grapefruit and Bitter Orange-Neroli.
However there are strict guidelines on naming and citrus has been examined and analyzed
for parentage for fairly a while.
Citrus taxonomy is
complicated and sometimes inconsistent. They’re all named with Latin and customary names. They
typically have the identical parentage however have completely different
physiologic types or formae typically based mostly on terroir (akin to Mandarin in
Italy and Tangerine within the USA) or scent chemistry akin to (limonene which has
a chiral distinction — each a left turning molecule, (S) for sinistral with the bitter odor of Lemon or Bitter
Orange and a proper turning molecule, (R) for proper hand or clockwise, the candy
odor of Oranges). That is the rationale all of us as lovers of important oils
and aromatherapy must study some chemistry together with good taxonomy.

I’ve at all times
questioned whether or not the colour was named after the fruit or was the fruit named
after the colour? As we speak I
came upon that the colour orange was named after the fruit, not the opposite
manner round. Earlier than then, the English-speaking world referred to the orange
colour as geoluhread, which accurately interprets to “yellow-red.”
