Orange flower absolute, also referred to as orange blossom absolute, is extracted from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree (Citrus aurantium amara) 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.Citrus aurantium is evergreen small treel, spiny and irregularly branched. Its small, elliptic to oblong leaves are pale green.The white flowers are small and produced in axillary clusters. The fruit is small, roundish and thin-skinned.The pulp is greenish and in sections of about ten. The juice is acid with a distinctive flavor.The fruit is used in much the same way as Lemon.Flowers smell sweet and they have five petals that are white and some kinds have purple staining in the outer surfaces.Orange Flower Absolute, also known as Neroli absolute has an exquisite and exotic scent. It is a wonderful ingredient in perfumery and a great addition to bath and body formulations. Orange Flower Absolute possesses the properties of being an antidepressant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, carminative, digestive, and tonic.

Citrus aurantium L. var. amara Engl, a member of genus Citrus (Rutaceae), widespread in China, is used as folk medicine for the treatment of helping digest, phlegm, enteritidis, stomachic and other deceases. In the present research, silica gel column, Sephadex LH-20, mass spectrometer (MS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) were used to separate and identify the chemical compounds from the flowers of C. aurantium var. amara, and several bioactivity assays were used to evaluate their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-virus and antitumour activities. Two major compounds, 5-hydroxy-6,7,3',4'-tetramethoxyflavone (HTF) and limonexic acid (LA), were isolated and identified from C. aurantium var. amara for the first time. The results of the bioactivity assays showed that HTF and LA displayed significant antioxidant activities and showed significant inhibition effects on the B16 cell lines at a concentration range from 6.25 to 50 μg/ml, and on the SMCC-7721 cell lines from 12.5 to 200 μg/ml. The antitumour effect, anti-inflammatory activity and the inhibiting expression of HBsAg and HBeAg of 2.2.15 cells displayed the tendency in a concentration-dependent manner. These two compounds from C. aurantium var. amara could potentially be used as a promising natural agent in the pharmaceutical industries.
