Citrus aurantium dulcis
Dried orange slices make beautiful decorations in the bath and give a sweet citrus scent. The vitamin-rich fruit helps to clean and clear the skin, while the feel-good fragrance restores energy and rejuvenates the body and mind.
The orange tree (Citrus aurantium dulcis) has glossy, evergreen leaves, thorny branches and fragrant, white flowers. It’s widely grown in tropical and sub-tropical climates for its sweet fruit, which can be eaten whole, or processed for its juice or sweetly fragrant peel.
Oranges are a rich source of vitamin C, which helps the skin to stay smooth, firm and bright. In addition, orange oil and juice have antibacterial and astringent properties to control excess oil and keep spots at bay.
