Orange flower absolute is extracted from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree by means of solvent extraction. It is dark orange in colour and much thicker than neroli oil, which is extracted from orange blossoms by a different method.

Orange blossom is also referred to interchangeably as orange flower. There is no difference between the two.

It belongs to the Rutaceae plant family and is a hardy citrus plant. They are evergreen and grow up to 20 feet in the wild. In cultivation, they will only grow to half this height. The tree bears double leaves, which have a bulge at the base of the main leaf.

It has an intensely floral aroma, and although expensive, it is one of the most popular essential oils used in perfumery. It is believed that the tradition of bridal orange blossom garlands started because the fragrance soothed the nerves of the young brides before retiring to the marital bed!
