Orange Vitality

Orange essential oil is extracted from the rind of the fruit. This method is the cold process method.

 

Citrus Sinensis Vitae

 

Orange trees are native to Asia, but you can find them all over the world, including in France, Germany, and the United States. The fragrant orange tree is an evergreen, flowering tree that grows to approximately 33 feet and has sweet-smelling blossoms. Orange essential oil is cold pressed from the rinds of the fresh, juicy fruit.

Orange Vitality essential oil is labeled for internal use as a dietary supplement which makes it a wonderful addition to the kitchen in culinary uses as well.

Essential Oil-Infused Wine

Did you know that you could enhance the experience and flavor of a good glass of wine simply by adding essential oil to the moment? Have I peaked your interest? Well then let me share with you what I have learned…

When selecting a wine, I learned that there are a few categories and terms to choose from. Terms such as woodsy, warm, crisp, fruity, floral, etc… You can do the same with essential oils and pair them accordingly. Let me show you how:

Riesling, for example, would pair well with a fruity essential oil such as mandarine, tangerine, lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, jade lemon, or a fruity blend such as Citrus Fresh.

A woodsy wine would pair well with cedarwood, juniper, spruce, or fir.

A more floral based wine could pair lavender, rose, geranium, etc…

When talking about pairing essential oils with wine, there are two ways to enjoy this combination. One is simply inhaling the paired essential oil by running a diffuser in the desired room. The other would be to add to your glass, bottle, or recipe of the chosen drink of choice. Here are a few fun recipes to try.

 

 

The wonderful thing about adding essential oils to the evening is that they don’t interfere with the wine, they enhance it. May you take delight in trying something new with your next glass of wine.
