where citrus essential oils come from?
Look very closely at this picture. I was sitting in the car peeling a tangerine one chilly winter day.
When, to my delight, and because the sun was hitting in just the right spot, I could clearly see all the lovely citrus-y oils, simply bursting out into the air.
And of course, those teeny, tiny oil drops above my fingertips, are just the ones released when I tore through the peel.
Look at the hundreds–perhaps thousands of drops left in the un-torn part of the strip. See them?
Imagine if you could capture all those misty little drops and save them in a container to use later. Wouldn’t that be incredible?
So, WHY hasn’t someone figured out how to capture all that Tangerine goodness and bottle it?! Hmmmmm?
Heh, heh, heh.
