Neroli Essential Oil

Neroli Essential Oil is steam distilled from the fragrant flowering blossoms of the orange tree, Citrus aurantium.
Neroli Essential Oil is intensely floral, citrusy, sweet and exotic. It blends well with many other essential oils and aromatics including floral, citrus, wood, spice and herb families.
