Our organically crafted Neroli Hydrosol, also known as Orange Blossom Hydrosol, is steam distilled from the enticing, white blossoms of Citrus aurantium trees growing in sun-bathed Moroccan orchards. This delightful hydrosol has a lovely floral aroma balanced with citrus and green notes. It is a very mild version of its essential oil counterpart, making it a beautiful addition to formulations.

Neroli Hydrosol is very soothing and calming to the nervous system. Its delicate, herbaceous, citrusy, floral aroma makes Neroli Hydrosol a good choice for products intended for romantic and sensual occasions.


Neroli Hydrosol is a lovely choice for use as skin support, as it is nourishing and rejuvenating. This hydrosol can also help ease unwanted muscle spasms and reduce the presence of unwanted microbial activity. Used as a staple throughout the perfume industry, this astringent hydrosol also makes a wonderful toner and make-up remover. Its anti-bacterial properties lend it to be a good choice for acne prone skin.

Emotionally and energetically, Neroli Hydrosol relaxes and soothes. Suzanne Catty, author of Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy, mentions that Neroli Hydrosol is mildly sedative but doesn't cause drowsiness. She also mentions that it can help with ADHD and that it can help stop caffeine jitters and the effects of over indulgence in alcohol. It can also help manage situational anxiety and depression. Along with ushering balance and a greater sense of calm, Orange Blossom Hydrosol can help support healthy sleep patterns.
