Orange Blossom Oil, also known as Neroli, is distilled from flowers of the Bitter Orange Tree, Citrus aurantium. The name comes from Nerola, a princess from Italy who used the oil as a perfume. Unlike many other steam distilled essential oils, the oil from the orange blossom flower, when properly distilled, has a very similar aroma to the untouched blooming flower.

Neroli Oil is distilled from the flowers of the bitter orange tree, from which we also get petitgrain and bitter orange oil.  The aroma is fresh and floral with a strong citrus nuance. Neroli is a classic floral note that blends exceptionally well with other fine florals and citrus oils. In flavors, it is an essential part of the cola profile, and also finds use in herbal liqueurs.
