DESCRIPTION

The blood orange is a variety of orange with crimson, almost-blood-colored flesh. The fruit is smaller than an average orange; its skin is usually pitted, but can be smooth. The distinctive dark flesh color is due to the presence of anthocyanins, a family of antioxidant pigments common to many flowers and fruit, but uncommon in citrus fruits. It is used in skin care for dull and oily complexions.  It is traditionally used in the treatment of colds and flu.  It may calm nervous tension and stress related conditions. It is thought to have an uplifting effect on you mood.

Lavender, Lemon, Clary Sage, Myrrh, Nutmeg and Clove Bud.
