Orange Blossom Organic Extract
Our Orange Blossom Organic Extract is extracted via organic solvents, with no hexane. This makes the oil appropriate for perfumery, skincare and also flavoring applications. It has the wonderful aroma of orange blossoms accompanied by a unique earthiness.
The blossoms come from the bitter orange tree, a resilient evergreen which belongs to the Rutaceae family, and are the same flowers that are used to distill Neroli essential oil and extract absolutes. The essential oil, absolutes and organic extracts are all produced using different processes, thus rendering oils with somewhat different aromas and textures.
The scent of orange blossoms has been revered for centuries and is very popular for use in fine natural perfumery as a fixative and for the way it beautifully complements other citrus notes, florals, spices and woods. Although a little lighter in aroma, this specialty oil can be used in place of Orange Blossom Absolute whenever the need for an organic and hexane-free alternative is desired.

- The queen of the orange blossoms Review by BEAJ
- I sampled a few of the Eden Neroli and Orange Blossoms. I would say without a doubt that this is the best, the most fragrant and flowery with the real scent of fresh orange flowers. Gorgeous worn as a perfume on its own. (Posted on 10/20/13)
- beautiful with no harsh tones Review by Bernadette
I too have been searching for the best neroli and orange blossom without the harsh notes, and this extract is really beautiful. Light at first but with great tenacity in blends. Soft, sweet, and more like the blossoms I've smelled than any other orange flower eo or ab I've tried.

- Very Lovely! Review by Annette
Good Orange Blossom oils are very hard to find, especially the absolutes do often have a harsh and pungent aspect.
Neroli does mostly project the fresh but not the more carnal aspects of the blossoms.
Actually I was looking for years for something that covers the complete spectrum of true Orange Blossoms and I was pleasantly surprised with this wonderful extract.
It has a lovely sumptuous and soft aroma and good tenacity that makes it definitely worth it to spend the $$$. Highly recommended! (Posted on 3/27/13)
