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 12, 2018

    Unfortunately, the market is currently under a lot of pressure. 2018 saw an overall decrease in neroli oil production even as the demand for this oil continued to increase. Prior to this year’s harvest, quantities were booked in advance, ultimately leading to a constrained supply. For 2018, there is very little carryover stock, and there will be immediate pressure on whatever is available. Prices are expected to rise in the near future.
