Essential oils

Essential oils are natural compounds of very valuable plant origin, with antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties.

Different parts of the fruit are used to extract the oils and thanks to the cold extraction treatment no organoleptic characteristics of the raw material are lost.

For more than 18 years Canditfrucht has been using exclusively American-made machinery, called BOE (Brown Oil Extractor), for the cold extraction of citrus essential oils.
The extraction process starts with the washing and careful selection of the citrus fruits which will then be conveyed on conveyor belts that will transport them to the BOE.
BOE is a machine which contains over 3 million razor sharp steel points placed on shafts that rotate one clockwise and the other counterclockwise and which are soaked in water.
This mechanism allows the citrus fruit to rotate around its entire circumference, remaining in place for a variable period and where the tips gently pierce the citrus peels and the essential oil that comes out is mixed with water.

The citrus fruits are then pushed forward by other citrus fruits which will then go to the extractors for the juices. The essential oil mixed with water is then sent through steel channels to the centrifuges that separate the water, which will be sent back into circulation in the BOE, from the essential oil which will instead be drummed.

Since our oils are particularly qualitative, after a work of refining, bleaching and fixing, they are used in all the most important perfume industries.
A very important fact is also the fact that this type of extraction allows us to save over 5 million liters of water for every 100,000 tons. of processed citrus fruits

How can you use essential oils?

They are perfect if used for aromatherapy, thanks to the help of an environmental diffuser of aromas oils stimulate our brain realando emotions and sensations. Fill the diffuser tray with water and add 5-10 drops of oil of your choice. Light the candle below and in a few moments a delicious citrus scent will spread in your environment. Never put the essential oils directly on the flame because they are easily flammable.
