Neroli - France Essential Oil
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.
Our Neroli essential oil from France is a suitable Neroli oil for many applications, while the Neroli Extra is premium Neroli and suitable for fine perfume making.
- A little goes a long way! Review by Golden Potion
- This is a glorious, rich, floral. It makes a beautiful middle note and is full of complexity. It has a dry, bitter orange quality to it--typical of neroli. Just a drop of this can lend depth to any citrus-rich scent. This is my go-to scent when I've created something that is too top-note heavy. (Posted on 5/3/13)
