Neroli is an oil derived from the bitter orange tree. The tree originally grew in parts of India, Africa, and the Himalayas, but it’s best known as the product of an American state. Spanish explorers in the 1500s brought orange trees to St. Augustine, Florida—the oldest continually occupied European settlement in the U.S.—giving birth to Florida’s thriving citrus groves. In 17th century Europe, neroli oil gained popularity thanks to Anne Marie Orsini, the princess of Nerola, Italy. The princess used the oil to perfume her gloves and bath, and the term neroli has been used for the fragrance ever since.
This essential oil blend is a very good substitute for pure Neroli, giving you that nice floral fruity character without destroying your pocket book. Because it contains neroli along with other essential oils, the blend is not cheap but much more affordable than straight neroli.
Pure Essential Oils, Absolutes, and Resins
All our essential oils are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. They are 100% pure, and sourced only from the most reputable distributors. We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases. These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, even with natural materials. And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.
