About The Plant
Citrus aurantium var. amara is an evergreen tree with long but not sharp spine and blossoms that are small, white and very fragrant.
Native to southeast Asia, this varietal serves enormous importance to the essential oil industry: the twigs and leaves are distilled into Petitgrain oil, and Bitter Orange oil is achieved by pressing the rind.
About The Hydrosol
Our Neroli hydrosol is obtained through water-steam distillation of fresh Neroli.
The bitter orange was first cultivated in the Mediterranean by Arabs in the 10th and 11th centuries and the essential oil first distilled in the early 16th century.
Neroli was first introduced as a fashionable scent near the end of the 17th century by Anna Maria de La Tremoille, princess of Nerola. It was said that she used it to perfume her gloves and in the water used for bathing, and this beautiful oil has been known as Neroli ever since.
Being one of the key essential oils in the classic Eau de Cologne (with Lavender, Bergamot, Lemon and Rosemary), it has a long history in aromatherapy use as a tonic to gently calm the nervous system.
Today, Neroli is widely used in the perfumery, skin care, and in blends to help promote relaxation and relieve stress.
