NATIONAL ORANGE BLOSSOM DAY | JUNE 27
National Orange Blossom Day on June 27th each year encourages us to enjoy orange blossoms for their aesthetic beauty. Orange blossoms have been used in culinary dishes, desserts, and teas worldwide. They add a slight citrus flavor to any dish!
Fragrant orange blossoms offer multiple health benefits, too. When prepared correctly, they make a delicious tea or orange blossom water. Some of the advantages may include improved sleep, reduced anxiety, and improved circulation.
Not surprisingly, the orange blossom is Florida’s state flower. Not only do the flowers result in the sweet as sunshine orange fruit, but thanks to the pollinating bees, we also get to enjoy unique honey with a faintly orange flavor a delightful treat. The blossom’s scent also goes into making perfumes and other fragrances for the home.
