Neroli oil is extracted from the Citrus aurantium L. blossoms, commonly named bitter orange, a tree belonging to the Rutaceae family. It is an evergreen shrub or tree,2-3 to 7-8 meters tall, with short and sharp spines producing ovoid or rounded greenish-yellow fruits with bitter, acidic pulp. It is widely cultivated in the tropics and subtropics. The orange tree originally came from China, but Neroli essential oil is generally obtained from France, Morocco, Portugal & Italy.

Neroli Bigarade is from the white petals of the bitter Seville orange; the sweet orange is known as Neroli of Portugal. Some Neroli oil is made from Lemon & Mandarin blossom.
