Product Description



Bitter orange, Seville orange, sour orange, bigarade orange, or marmalade orange refers to a citrus tree (Citrus aurantium) and its fruit. It is native to Southeast Asia, and has been spread by humans to many parts of the world.

Wild trees are found near small streams in generally secluded and wooded parts of Florida and The Bahamas after it was introduced to the area from Spain where it had been introduced and cultivated heavily at the beginning in the 10th century.

It is a hybrid between Citrus maxima (pomelo) and Citrus reticulata (mandarin). Many varieties of bitter orange are used for their essential oil, and are found in perfume, used as flavouring or as a solvent. The Seville orange variety is used in the production of marmalade.


Medicinal Action and Uses

Anorectic - As a weight loss supplement, Citrus aurantium is marketed as an anorectic [appetite suppressant], purporting to increase weight and fat loss.

Digestive - Bitter orange is well known in traditional Chinese medicine as a digestive aid. The flower as well as oil of the plant are suggested with regards to dealing with gastrointestinal problems. This includes health conditions like diarrhea, constipation, intestinal gas, ulcers within the intestine, or blood in feces.

Skin Complaints – Can be used to treat fungal skin infections, such as ringworm, athlete’s foot, and jock itch. Also it has an astringent capability. It soaks up excessive sebum helping balance the creation of oil in the skin, calming over-active oily as well as acne-proneskin types.
