Neroli actually comes from a bitter orange tree called Citrus Aurantium. It is steam-distilled from the small, waxy, white flowers of the tree, not from the actual orange fruit itself. The retrieval of Neroli oil is time sensitive, as the flowers quickly lose their oil after they’re plucked from the tree. The blossom must be hand picked, carefully and without bruising.
The bitter orange tree is native to eastern Africa and tropical Asia, but today it’s also grown throughout the Mediterranean region and in the states of Florida and California.
Neroli is extremely beneficial in aromatherapy with the ability to lower stress, sooth the mind and lower cortisol levels.
