Neroli Essential Oil

Also known as Orange Blossom Essential Oil.

Neroli Essential Oil is steam distilled from the fragrant flowering blossoms of the orange tree, Citrus aurantium.

Neroli Blossoms

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.

It is highly concentrated, and a little goes a long way. The complexity of Neroli Essential Oil is best explored and appreciated when enjoyed in very low dilutions.
