Oranjebloesem-infusie (Citrus aurantium dulcis)
Citrus aurantium dulcis
We make this infusion by simmering orange blossoms into boiled water. After a while, this is then strained and added to our fresh, handmade cosmetics
The bitter orange tree (Citrus aurantium amara) is an evergreen member of the Rutaceae plant family. Many parts of the tree are used for perfuming and culinary purposes: the fruits flavour food and drinks, the flowers are distilled to produce neroli oil and orange flower absolute and, finally, petitgrain oil is obtained from the leaves and twigs of the tree.
