Neroli oil has been around for thousands of years, traveled from ancient China to India, Africa, Arabia, Italy, Morocco and Spain.
The name Neroli is said to have come from an Italian princess in the mid-1600’s, Anna-Marie de la Tremoille, the Countess of Neroli. She is said to have bathed in the orange blossom oil, worn it as a perfume, and even scented her gloves with her favorite fragrance.
Today, Neroli essential oil is produced in many countries in Europe, Egypt, and in Haiti. Our neroli essential oil is sourced from France. It takes 1000 lbs. of orange blossom buds, picked at the exact time they begin to open, to make just 1 lb. of Neroli essential oil. It’s precious, and the aroma is amazing!
