Therapeutically, Neroli essential oil is used for skin care, and as an anti-depressant, an immuno-stimulant, and as a digestive, cardiac, and circulatory tonic. It is said to instill peace, promote confidence, and aid in connecting with the Higher Self.
At the end of the 17th century, the oil from bitter orange flowers was used as a perfume by an Italian royal, the Princess Nerola, to scent her gloves and bath water. Ever since, Neroli essential oil has been considered a very precious oil. It has been traditionally used to uplift the spirit, relieve depression, and soothe hysteria and shock by imparting a sense of peace.
Neroli is a valued ingredient in many natural perfumes and blends well with a wide variety of essential oils. Its sweet, floral aroma adds a wonderful top note to aromatic creations. Some perfumers say that Neroli essential oil can be used in most perfume blends to impart its unique character.
Neroli has been described as being so volatile as to be fragile; quick to dissipate, it is best preserved with the least possible exposure to heat and air, and with gentle, minimal movement.
Neroli Extra essential oil possesses a beauty unlike any other Neroli we've ever tried. With its high energetic vibration, it practically takes flight from the bottle. This Neroli is not to be missed if you are looking for an uplifting essence and vibrant top note. A must for every natural perfumer!
- Arabian nights, HOT! Review by Dave
The Neroli Extra, is probably the sweetest oil I have used. It is great in diffusers to set a romantic mood. Makes me think of what life might have been like long ago on some warm Arabian night.... And also, I enjoy it in my nighttime bath mix, and my cotton “pillow-puffs.” Lovely oil, Eden!
