Essential Oil Introduction

The environment near the Mediterranean region of Egypt is characterized by unique soil formed by volcanic eruptions, rich in minerals, which is suitable for plant growth. Ample sunlight enhances the quality of the flowers and highlights their efficacy. The Mediterranean region is often characterized by gravelly soil with high alkalinity, giving the Neroli a slight bitterness but with a more balanced effect.

The orange tree, from which essential oils can be extracted, is mainly divided into Bitter Orange and Sweet Orange. Essential oils produced from Bitter Orange trees, whether from the fruit, leaves, or flowers, are of higher quality and have superior efficacy. Bitter Orange flower essential oil, with its slight bitterness and spicy characteristics, is an excellent choice for perfumes.
