The sweet variety of Oranges we all like to have in our fruit bowl are actually a variety of the more common bitter orange that was already being imported to Italy from China in the 11th century. Now, we use the peels, leaves and flowers of the fruit for herbal remedies, flavours, perfumes and much more. We stock dried orange flowers wholesale for your distilling needs.
Steam distillation of the Dried Orange Flowers produces the essential oil Neroli. This oil is used in modern perfumes and colognes. Neroli emits a rich and citrus-like floral scent; as well as being a key ingredient for perfumes, it’s also found in body lotions, cosmetics and aromatherapy.
Neroli oil has been known to have a soothing effect on mood, due to this it is believed to benefit conditions like:
high blood pressure
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Bitter Orange Flowers were typically used as a diuretic or to counter too much “heat” in the body. Those who have too much heat in their body are said to either have a Yang excess (because Yang is Hot in nature) or a Yin deficiency (Yin is Cold in Nature). Depending on your condition bitter orange flowers can help restore a harmonious balance between Yin and Yang.
