Neroli Essential Oil is derived from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree. True Neroli Essential Oil requires one ton of flower blossoms to make one quart of oil. Its high cost is due to the labor intensive process of retrieving the fresh blossoms and distilling the precious oil. BE CAREFUL! Neroli is one of the most adultered essential oils in aromatherapy. There are many less costly imitations that smell nice but do not have the therapeutic benefits of true Neroli. In order to create quality Neroli Essential Oil, Neroli blossoms must first be harvested and distilled immediately thereafter. Tunisia, Spain, Italy, and France are currently the leading producing countries of Neroli Essential Oil in terms of quality and volume. Neroli has a powerful and refreshing aroma with sweet, floral and citrusy notes; and is appealing to both men and women. In perfumery, Neroli Essential Oil is highly sought after for its high floral notes.
