Another great product from BA. I have used and liked BA's sweet orange oil, but I think I like the bitter orange better. A somewhat sharper smell, and somehow reminds me more of oranges. And I think the stronger scent will work well in bath soaps. Looking forward to trying mixing this with things like myrrh or frankincense where it will hold its own a little better than sweet orange oil. A really good one.

Third company I tried.. Stopped here, no need to search further.
Best strong and longest lingering fragrances.

I am looking forward to using this in creams, body lotions, soaps, butter bars & aromatherapy lamp. I'm sure I shall discover other ways to use this as well. I love the clean citrus smell of this & I think it will work well for a body mist too. the possibilities are totally endless. my imagination is always in high gear when I purchase a new essential oil that I haven't used before.

Great for flea control on small dogs. Apply, rub in, fleas run. Using daily seems to keep fleas and mosquitoes away. Highly recommend. Fragrance-wonderful.

This oil is perfect for every use I've applied it to, and has such a wonderful, complex orange fragrance with a hint of grapefruity astringency, just as described. Now I absolutely need to try the sweet and blood orange oils!
