Bitter Orange Essential Oil Extraction

Bitter Orange Oil is extracted from the peel of Citrus aurantium amara.  It's a "cold" process.  A thin layer is scraped from the peel in the extractor.  The extractor is like a rotating cheese grater.  The oil is separated from the peel,waxes and water in a centrifuge.
