Origins of Clementine
Clementine essential oil comes from the fruit of the Citrus clementina tree. This tree is a hybrid of the mandarin orange and the sweet orange trees. It is believed that the first clementine tree grew spontaneously in an Algerian garden in the late 19th century. It was then introduced to California where several different varieties were cultivated.
Today, clementines are grown throughout the world, and are valued for their sweet taste in addition to the aromatic essential oil that comes from the rind.
What Makes Clementine Different?
Clementines are distinctive among the plants of the Citrus genus. Clementines are more tolerant of temperature variation and don’t need as high heat as other citrus plants.
This means they can grow in areas with more moderate temperatures.
Along with the unique harvesting factors of the tree, Clementine essential oil has a distinct aroma that is similar to Wild Orange, but with subtle Lemon notes. This is thanks to the volatile aromatic compounds that are cold pressed from the peel.
