Neroli Oil Egypt Citrus aurantium

  • Description

    Neroli comes from the bitter orange trees, whose blossoms are picked and must immediately be put to distillation to avoid decay due to the delicacy of the flowers. Typically the blossoms are distilled first, producing Neroli essential oil. Egyptian Neroli obtained through steam distillation, from fresh flowers of Citrus aurantium, member of Rutaceae family, pale yellow in colour, having characteristic floral, fresh, green notes. Neroli, widely used in perfumery, is also known to have soothing aromatherapeutic properties.

    The bitter orange tree is relatively small, standing four to seven meters high, with bright-green foliage that, come springtime, is interspersed with a plethora of white, waxy flowers containing the intoxicating essence of orange blossom.

    It has beautiful floral notes that soothes, relaxes and uplifts the spirits and helps maintain confidence. It has an exquisite aroma, perfect for skin care oil, mature and sensitive skin. It also works wonders on scars and stretch marks. It is also believed to relieve tension, stress and anxiety. Neroli Morocco oil also helps in cases of insomnia and depression. Their antispasmodic action promotes a calming effect on the intestines and can be helpful with colitis and diarrhoea. It blends well with Citrus oils, Jasmine, Rose, and Sandalwood oil.

  • Latest Market Information December 26, 2019

    Over the years, neroli has grown to attain stability and garnered sustained attention for planting and marketing. With more weather stability, concerted efforts and better pricing strategy, Egypt has gained an edge over other neroli-producing nations. Egypt has been encouraging planting of trees for several years now. These are flowering early and as they grow so neroli production is also reasonably good. This year Egypt delivered around 1.7 MT out of which around 1.3 MT was contributed by one of the renowned players in the business. However, though the quantity of oil produced went up, the quality was somewhat compromised. Once brought to the notice of some renowned distillers, systems were put into place for better control over the quality of blossoms accepted for oil extraction. There was also an influx of some inferior quality carryover oil, which was suspected to be adulterated. This was being marketed at significantly lower prices; so here is a word of caution not be tempted by cheaper rates. In 2019, the market witnessed a rise in demand for neroli and estimated production of 2 MT of oil. However, weather played spoilsport and the resultant yield of oil from flowers was very low. Even with this low yield we still produced more oil than the previous year. The estimated production is around 1.6 MT. There is a boom expected in production in the upcoming 2020 season and the years ahead, while prices will be on the low side for the coming years.
