Citrus aurantium dulcis peel oil is an essential oil derived from the peels of the sweet orange (Citrus aurantium dulcis), the same fruit that you get your orange juice from.
It is commonly used as a fragrance for cosmetic products because of its pleasant, citrusy scent. The main constituent of the essential oil is limonene (up to 96%). The oil is frequently used in aromatherapy because it can induce an energetic, invigorating mood.
Application of this fragrant essential oil to the skin may cause an allergic reaction, especially when combined with sun exposure.
