NEROLI OIL

Posted by Elizebath Bijoy Sunday, July 31, 2011


Neroli is heady, sweet, and floral, and is made from the aromatic blossoms of the orange tree. It’s rare to find a pure 100% neroli oil, as it’s impossible for companies to be able to offer it for a low cost. It takes approximately 1,000 pounds of orange blossoms to make one pound of neroli oil. Therefore, it is not unusual to find it “cut” with another oil. This is perfectly acceptable, and does not reduce neroli’s benefits at all. Used for centuries to combat plague, fever, and nervousness, neroli is a one of the most user-friendly oils there is. It helps regenerate skin cells, improves skin elasticity, and even helps with acne, scarring, and stretch marks. Internally, neroli acts as a natural tranquilizer, and can relieve chronic anxiety, depression, and stress. Besides being a beloved oil by aromatherapists all over the globe, neroli is also often used in bridal bouquets, both as a symbol of purity, and for its ability to calm the bride’s nerves.
