100% natural cosmetic grade Citrus aurantium
Various parts of the bitter orange tree are used to make different essential oils.
The peel becomes bitter orange essential oil; the leaves petitgrain essential oil, and the flowers become neroli or orange blossom essential oil, depending on the extraction process.
Neroli has a sweet, honey, floral fragrance and is highly prized in the perfume industry.
The essential oil is very expensive, so we have bought in the cosmetic version to enjoy.
