Product Rating: 4.8/5 (As per 50 Customer Reviews)
Botanical Name:Citrus aurantium amara
Plant Part: Flowers
Extraction Method: Steam Distilled
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 therapeutic 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: Like other reviewers, I was skeptical about the 3%. I love neroli, and I want to smell it. But this is truly paradise in a bottle, and strong enough if I use a bit more than I'm used to. True, it is not as strong as some more expensive oils that claim to be 100% pure/uncut, but I suspect those are more like a 5-10% dilution, and I like that ND is honest about what we are getting. This will be a staple in my aromatherapy, massage oils, & lotions repertoire.
Rating: I absolutely LOVE this neroli/jojoba blend. I have an orange tree in my yard, and it smells just like the blossoms. I use it straight from the bottle as an evening moisturizer and in my leave-in conditioner. The scent is fantastic, and I was surprised by how strong it turned out to be.

Rating: For the affordable price of this 3.3 ounce bottle of 3% dilution Neroli, I decided to go for it, since I was getting low on the Neroli I got in India. Well, as soon as I smelled this on my hands, I was disappointed. It was definitely not at bright and sweet as I hoped it would be. It smelled to me like neroli hydrosol which I have gotten in the past, that has this chalky, stale (hard to describe!) after smell. Its not that its because of the dilution, its very strong smelling, its just not as good smelling as I hoped it would be. Maybe I will make some blends as gifts with it and try to use it up and give it away that way.

Rating: I was so worried that the fragrance would be weak, as it is only a 3% dilution. But oh my! This. Smells. WONDERFUL!!!!!
It smells (to my nose) like Magnolia and/or Gardenia. It's really really beautiful. I can't stop sniffing it. It can be a perfume, all on its own, it's THAT good. Definitely want to purchase the pure essential oil now. Very thankful New Directions offered this item, otherwise I'd never have known what a gorgeous fragrance Neroli has.

Rating: Glad newdirectionsaromatics used Jojoba as carrier oil for this 3% dilution, as Jojoba well compilments the great skin beneficial properties of Neroli.
... not to mention Neroli's amazingly therapeutic aromatic qualities.
Rating: What is NOT to love about Neroli 3% Dilution?
A fantastic EO at a fair and affordable price! A 3% dilution allows you to enjoy all the benefits this versatile, skin friendly EO has to offer - straight out of the bottle. Neroli 3% jojoba dilution is a perfect addition to any skin care formulation as jojoba mimics our own natural sebum. Perfect for all skin types. You will immediately identify the familiar scent of Neroli (a staple in any well rounded EO collection).
Buy with confidence.

Rating: just got a small size and will definitely be getting a larger size next time as this dilution smells even stronger than i imagined and so divine
By:Mary, Boulder, Colorado Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Nov-2012
Rating: Neroli has quickly become my favorite addition to almost everything. This dilution is a wonderful way to get a great oil at a reasonable price. Even though it's a dilution, it has a fragrant smell. I just ordered my second bottle of this oil and can't wait for it to arrive!

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
By:Rachel, Scarborough, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is a very economical way to experience neroli if you can't afford the EO. I use it as a perfume by itself and it is heavenly.
By:Stacey, Paris, Illinois Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Nov-2011
Rating: Wonderful oil! I didn't think that the dilution would be very strong, but the scent is perfect. It blends well with most of the EO I use, and leaves behind a wonderful fragrance on my skin.
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.
By:Jacqueline, Brockville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Absolutely wonderful! Neroli full strength can be very intimidating to use since it so strong. So having it in a 3 % dilution is much more user friendly not too mention economical. Wonderful quality too!
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!
By:Jeannette, Red Deer, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
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 .
By:Jill, Springfield, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is lovely... not over powering, but strong enough to know it's Neroli. I'm just about to order another large bottle.
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: 09-Nov-2005
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: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Very strong Neroli scent. Price is nice if you dont have the money to splurge on the essential oil.
By:Derek, Portsmouth, New Hampshire Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Jul-2011
Rating: I bought this dilution never having smelled neroli, and am so glad that I did! It is surprisingly strong, fresh and citrusy. It is wonderfully complex, with floral, fruit, and earthy aromas. I love the scent and I love the price!
By:Holly, Glendale, Arizona Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Dec-2008
Rating: I am a little surprised with this Neroli mixture. I have smelled orange blossoms in Florida & this oil smells nothing like the sweet, floral orange blossoms that I'm used to. It doesn't smell bad. It just has a strong, woody scent which reminds me of the Whole Foods grocery chain. Even a co-worker of mine said that it smells like you've just walked into Whole Foods. I've mixed it with lavender & I think it works well together. In all, I like it, but still am looking for that true Florida orange blossom.

Rating: I haven't smelled Neroli before this so I have nothing to compare it to but it's pretty nice!! Thanks for another great product!
Rating: I feel somewhat strange saying this, but I cannot tell the difference between the aroma of the 3% and pure Neroli oil. In all fairness, I'm not a huge fan of Neroli in he first place. I've always felt it was too overpowering to the point of giving me a headache. My husband is the one who loves it. That being said, this is a great product. My husband does not notice the difference either. To satisfy my husbands need for Neroli and my need for earthy/spicy aroma, I mix this with a bit of clove oil and we are both happy. Now that I have switched to the 3%, I can keep the Neroli flowing without spending as much. Maybe I will buy something for myself and not tell him. :)~ Thanks ND!
By:Michael, Chicago, Illinois Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Dec-2010
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: 09-Nov-2005
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:Gwen, Burnaby, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Delicate and lovely
By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I bought this dilution on a whim because the description sounded wonderful and the price was right. True to form, ND did not disappoint!! This is a lovely, strong, floral scent. Very fresh, and intoxicating. I've used it in lotions and mp soaps with excellent results.
By:Holly, Glendale, Arizona Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Dec-2008
Rating: All I could smell here is fruit loops. Was never the biggest fan of fruit loops. This is not my favorite variety of neroli.
By:Teju, Tukwila, Washington
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Mar-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: 09-Nov-2005
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: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I use this as a moisturizer and it works well. The jojoba oil is perfect for the skin and then I get the added bonus of smelling like neroli. It is a favorite of mine. I will buy more, I think I'm in love.
By:Adriana, Azusa, California
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 12-Feb-2010
Rating: This is a wonderful way to get true Neroli scent in an affordable way. The fragrance is as fresh and bright a smelling the flower. I use Neroli in several creams and sugar scrubs, and even though this is a 3% dilution, the scent comes through sweet and clear. Love it!
By:Joanne, New Brunswick, New Jersey Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Nov-2009
Rating: Love Neroli and the 3% dilution made it possible for me to experience the real thing instead of the fragrance oil (which I love to but wanted natural) I think I'm keeping this for myself though I don't like sharing.
By:Kristie, Portsmouth, New Hampshire Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Nov-2009
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: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is an amazing 3% dilution. Exceed my expectations!
By:Rachel, Virginia Beach, Virginia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Mar-2007
Rating: This is THE strongest scented dilution I have purchased, that I can't imagine what the full-bodied scent would be like! well worth it!
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.
By:Susanna, Scarborough, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: i love the smell of this so much that i just ordered the eo. i was hoping to use it for face products but i have adult acne and was unhappy to find that it is mixed with jojoba oil which can clog pores.
Rating: Wonderful woody scent. This one smells stronger than the other 3% dilutions I have tried.
A good buy.
By:Ivie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: For a 3% this is SO strong, I was really suprised. I will be ordering this again.
By:Chloe, Waterloo, Iowa Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Jun-2009
Rating: I'm extremely impressed with this dilution. It is *strong,* much stronger than I expected, and there's no question that it is a real, fine neroli. Great lasting power, too. I can't believe the price-per-aromatic-strength ratio of this dilution. It's incredible! And incredibly affordable. A great buy, and I suspect I'll soon be coming back to pick up a larger quantity.
Rating: I absolutly love this oil. I put it on the inside of my wrists and every time I smell it I forget the snow. I just wish it would last longer.
By:Kaja, Oakvile, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
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.
By:Simone, New Westminster, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: i can't afford the pure eo, so i am so glad nda provides the precious dilutions. i purchased a 100ml bottle and is very pleased with the product. i use it directly on my face at night and it gets absorbed really quickly. not greasy at all. golden jojoba is really a great carrier oil as well.
By:Julie, Rochester, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Jun-2008
Rating: I adore the 3% dilutions. They are much stronger than I had anticipated and reasonably priced. A great way to include otherwise unaffordable scents in my formulations. I would love to see a larger variety offered in the future.
By:Karen, Spring Hill, Florida Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Dec-2007
Rating: The price is amazing. I was surprised that the scent was stronger than I had thought before I purchased it. This is one fine product that I can't live without!
By:Maggie, North York, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
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!
By:Debra, Scarborough, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I love love love Neroli oil, and this 3% dilution of Neroli in Jojoba Oil is the Best!! In terms of price and quality it can't be beat. The fragrance of Neroli is out of this world, New Directions Aromatics have done this justice!! I use it in all of my applications from soaps, to body butters, to body scrubs and body oils. My customers love it too!! Thank you New Directions Aromatics for doing such a wonderful job!
By:Maryam, New York, New York

Rating: I never could afford Neroli oil before I saw this product. Because it was only a 3% dilution and very reasonably priced, I had my doubts about how strong the scent would be when I ordered, and was VERY pleased with the product. I use it in my "making natural perfumes" class and when a recipe calls for neroli, i just use the dilution and it works very well. Neroli has always been one of my favorite oils, but due to the cost I've always admired it from afar, but not anymore. Thanks new directions for these wonderful dilutions of expensive oils at amazing prices. ! All your 3% dilutions that I've ordered (jasmine - both kinds, chamomile, sandalwood, rose, etc.) have all been fantastic and I recommend you to all my students!
