Neroli: Citrus aurantium (L.) var. amara
Why neroli? Did you know that orange flowers have an historic association with weddings (and fertility!)? It's no surprise. Neroli essential oil and weddings have a lot in common: they both offer an uplifting, sweet, and refreshing infusion of life. Neroli is a common addition to perfumes and makes a lovely bouquet garnish.
Quality Assured: Our certified organic neroli essential oil is responsibly sourced from Egypt. The essential oil is steam distilled from the flowers. Every batch of oil is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for use and entirely free of adulterants.
The Apothecary Shoppe's "Neroli" was featured in a widely popular lifestyle magazine. Check it out here!
Independent third-party lab reports including GC/MS and pesticide testing results are available upon request. Please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the essential oil Latin name and lot number; results include a comparative analysis with ISO and the Pharmacopeia when available.

Benefits: Neroli aromatherapy essential oil’s uplifting aroma makes it a wonderful oil to promote rest and relaxation. It's also touted as a natural "love potion!"
Regulatory Status: Neroli essential oil is listed on the FDA Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) list.
How to Store Your Oil: Keep your essential oils stored in a cool dark place. Neroli (and all citrus oils), pine, and juniper should all be stored in the fridge to prevent oxidation. If an oil spoils from heat and oxidizes, it can cause skin irritation.
