Otherwise known as Orange Blossom, this is a very precious oil.
The bitter orange tree blossoms are very delicate and its aroma volatile. Steam distillation requires alot of skill to obtain a yield that honours the true magical fragrance of the Orange Blossom. It is indeed laborious work, but most definitely worth it, the result is a powerful scent that is simultaneously delicate and elegant.
In many cultures it is custom to have Orange Blossom in the bride’s bouquet as a symbol of virginity, however this could also be for another lesser-known reason - Neroli has an impact on states of shock, it boosts confidence, and gives strength to a weak will.
Neroli is the king of oils when it comes to regeneration, such as improving healthy cell turnover and improving circulation, thus giving the whole body a boost.
Some say Neroli is so powerful it also regenerates the soul!
