Description: Neroli Essential Oil is derived from the blossoms of either the sweet orange tree or the bitter orange tree. Our variety comes from the bitter orange tree which is viewed within the aromatherapy world as being of higher quality.
Color: Dark greenish yellow liquid.
Common Uses: Any type of skin can benefit from this oil, although it is particularly appreciated in creams for dry, irritated or sensitive skin. It is also used in toners and minimizes the appearance of pores. It is one of the most popular floral essences use in fine perfumery, a few drops of which will make any unscented cream more sophisticated and elegant.
Aromatic Scent: Neroli Essential Oil has a sweet, floral citrus aroma. Many aromatherapists refer to Neroli as an exotic and exquisite essential oil.
History: Though Bitter Orange Essential Oil from the peel of the fruit has been around for centuries, Neroli Essential Oil, which was distilled from the blossoms, wasn’t discovered until the seventeenth century. It was named after Anna Maria de la Tremoille, princess of Nerola. The oil’s properties were extremely valued by the people of Venice whose reputation was enhanced by Neroli’s perfume industry.
Cautions: This oil is non-toxic and non-sensitizing. Avoid use during pregnancy.

Rating: Love, love, love this! Can't get enough of the beautiful & sensual deep floral, citrus aroma. I've used it in homemade bath powder, facial tonics, moisturizing cream, and simply as a lovely fragrance. It's a must-try.
Rating: Been using the Neroli 3% each night after a shower as a body oil and within 2 weeks of using the dark spots and marks are fading. Beautifully scented oil with many healing benefits. Love Neroli so much that I just had to order the 1000 ml to so that I don't run out. Thanks NDA!

Rating: This is very fragrant for 3%. Beautiful scent. Love it! Will buy again!
Rating: This one gave me a very hard time and I have lost some of the oil in the process... So hard to get a drop. I removed the dropper and tried to pour into a smaller bottle but leaked... I finally got better results by using a glass dropper from another oil. Just hope this oil will give me the awaited properties saids for the skin...

Rating: I ordered a bottle last year and it was A+, as all the reviewers have noted. I bought another this year (spring 2019), counting on the quality to be the same for myself and my customers. It wasn't. the jojoba smell overpowered the neroli (and jojoba shouldnt smell). i had to buy an expensive biottle of neroli not from ND to try to fix the product.
I explained 5 times to customer service and they kept repeating that the lab says it's fine. It's not; it's awful. After badgering ND, they finally relented to give me a 3% off coupon code, which is a slap in the face.
Worst customer service ever experienced. I have to rethink my dependence on their product, and my expectation that it will be good and that they will stand behind the customer when it's not. So utterly disappointed in the whole exchange. i've been a customer over a decade and this is how I'm reated when their product is off?
Rating: I can't say enough about this amazing scent! OMGOODNESS!!!

Rating: This is a beautiful neroli and very potent for a 3% dilution. I was very happily surprised, sweet honeyed and a hint of green just as a neroli should be. Only a few drops makes me feel uplifted and happy. A must for my facial oil recipe and works wonders in anxiety/depression blends. As another reviewer said "I can't stop smelling it"! Thank you ND.
Rating: This is an absolutely wonderful oil. The scent is strong for a 3% dilution but that is what makes it so great, you need only a very little. Love mixing this with ylang-ylang for a dreamy perfume and works well in a diffuser.
By:Elvira, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Feb-2012
Rating: This Neroli 3% is wonderful! very delightfully strong aroma for a 3% dilution. You will not be disappointed. I add to skin creams, or with carrier. Uplifting, I cannot stop smelling it!

Rating: I bought the Neroli dilution after the rave reviews it got. I must admit I didn't like it at first, but it has grown on me. I love it mixed with citrus', melissa, and ginger. Still finding uses for it as it is strong and floral, but the potential is there. And it's definitely an uplifing and happy oil!

Rating: I can't stop smelling this! It's a stunning scent. I was worried that at 3% dilution it would be a bit weak, but not at all. It works beautifully in my lotions.
Rating: I don't typically like flowery scents, but decided to try this as a supplement to some skin products I was making. I still find it a bit flowery/heady, but I actually love it best in a sweet dark orange EO based diffuser blend I made.
By:A., Dawson Creek, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Jul-2013
Rating: I have only recently discovered the scent of Neroli, and I must say, it's love at first sniff! The essential oil is quite expensive, so I decided to try the 3% Dilution. I will admit, it's still decently strong for only 3%, and at the sample price, you really couldn't go wrong! I would only wish for maybe a 10% Dilution instead of 3%... perhaps if there's enough demand they might consider!
By:Jennifer, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Sep-2012
Rating: I purchased the Neroli dilution based on other reviews and was not disappointed. I never knew what Neroli smelled like but now can not do without it. I have added it to my lotions and creams
Rating: Not being able to afford pure Neroli EO, I was thrilled to find this dilution. I never got what all the fuss was about until I cracked open the cap...and then I understood completely. What a beautiful green floral scent, so fresh! Very happy with it.
Rating: This was the first product that I have purchased from ND that I won't get again. I was expecting a fragrant and robust neroli like the one I am familiar with. 3% with this variety just doesn't cut it. Maybe ND could find a 10% Indian neroli?

Rating: This Neroli Dilution is the first and the last solution for any skin issues from acne to psoriasis. It is very soothing , warming and calming at the same time.
I was ready to give this Neroli dilution the highest praise every until it went out of stock . It has now come back at twice the price which makes it non competitive even with pure Neroli oil which is very pricy.
It seems to me that the price increase is mainly due to Jojoba carrier oil price skyrocketing in recent months which makes me question if maybe switching to another more affordable carrier oil would be more suited. I've tried Neroli with other carrier oils like grapeseed and sweet almond and they work just as well. Certainly if the point of dilution is to make it affordable to try , then the barrier shouldn't be the carrier oil. For someone like me who wanted to continue using this dilution for the skin health, this price increase makes in unaffordable in the long term. I thought I found a solution for my lingering skin problems and now I am not sure what to do.

Rating: I bought this forgetting I had a 5mL of 20% in Jojoba oil from a different company, but for the price of the 15mL bottle whatever right. Well smelling the 2 there is a significant difference! The ND 3% is much nicer, lighter and cleaner smelling than the 20%! I paid 4x the price for 1/3 the quantity and the quality overall definitely favors ND's oil. I find that even tho there 20% in the other oil it's the Jojoba you smell more. I am very pleased with my mistake and have found a new Neroli oil for my cabinet! I would love to smell what a 20% ND Neroli would smell like!

Rating: I am new to aromatherapy and have bought quite a few oils so far. I went with this dilution to start to see if I liked the scent. Well.... I didn't go wrong...aahhhhh heaven .
Rating: Beautiful, heavenly, uplifting neroli scent - mixes well with a variety of oils and gives me an overall feeling of calm & happiness.
By:Tusha, Brampton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Mar-2011
Rating: The scent is strong despite being diluted. I use a bit in some product and people can smell it between the other oils I use. Very good.
By:Michele, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 02-Jun-2011
Rating: This dilution is absolutely wonderful! I love the smell, it's neroli at it's finest!
By:Jackie, Porter's Lake, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 21-Jan-2009
Rating: This dilution has a nice strength. I don't like the scent so much on it's own but find it great to add some depth to my citrus blends.

By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Jan-2010
Rating: Truly stunning scent! Neroli has been described as the light at the end of the tunnel. It certainly lifts the spirits, and it smells heavenly. The dilution is still quite strong enough to scent with. Wonderful!
By:Sharon, Yarker, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Sep-2007
Rating: Fantastic oil with a true neroli fragrance. The scent is so strong I can hardly believe it's a 3% dilution.
By:Jenn, Vancouver, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Mar-2010
Rating: I was surprised at such a great essential oil in a 3% dilution I didn't think it would be that good. And it was great.
By:Shirleen, Penetanguishene, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Jul-2006
Rating: I love this oil! Fresh, clean and oh so fragrant. Nothing like it. It really picks you up. I was not expecting such a concentrated aroma. It's just fantastic. Great price and well worth having it. You will find yourself reaching for it time and time again.
Rating: I'm so impressed! I can't believe this is so inexpensive, yet the smell is still strong. Excellent when mixing with Rose EO as night serum.

Rating: I was surprised at how clean the scent is. There is no other scent like neroli, and now I know why this oil helps people see the light at the end of the tunnel. I can't wait to try the pure essential oil!
