Neroli essential oil is extracted from the soft, white blossoms of the Bitter Orange tree which are usually gathered by hand between April and May. It takes approximately 1000 pounds of Bitter Orange blossoms to make just one pound of Neroli oil. The tree is native to eastern Africa and tropical Asia but is now grown throughout the Mediterranean region as well as California and Florida.

History of Neroli
Today, neroli oil is one of the most widely used floral oils in perfumery and highly regarded as an aromatherapy favorite. However, this delightful oil has been praised for centuries for its qualities, including instilling a sense of tranquility. In the 17th century, Anne Marie Orsini, princess of Nerola, Italy, popularized this elegant aroma when it became a favorite of her own. The name “neroli” was adopted and has since been used to describe this essence.
