|One of the most effective relaxant and restorative essential oils, Neroli calms the mind and the body. Neroli is made from the blossoms of Bitter Orange, and is beloved for its sweet intoxicating scent used historically for both seduction and tranquillity (which explains its popular use as a perfume and wedding flower). Neroli is right up there with Jasmine and Rose as one of the most highly valued essential oils - it’s expensive but a little goes a long way, only 1-2 drops are needed to release its benefits.
Nature/Essence – Tranquil & Harmonising
FOR THE SKIN
Neroli is a beautiful oil to condition all skin types and is particularly suited to sensitive, mature, dry or irritated skin. It is recommended for broken capillaries and redness, and helps stimulate skin regeneration and protect against or soften scars and stretch marks.
FOR THE BODY
The calming action of Neroli can be used to ease digestive spasms and irritability, especially when associated with nervous tension and worry. In fact any complaints brought on by nervous tension or highly emotional states are likely to be soothed by Neroli.
FOR THE MIND
A supreme oil for the mind and spirit, Neroli is extremely calming and brings about a sense of peace and tranquillity. Great to use for anxiousness and panic, low mood, nervous tension, sleeplessness and emotional trauma or hysteria. It is sometimes called the ‘Rescue Remedy’ of essential oils.
FOR THE HOME
Neroli is a nice oil for the bedroom – whether to encourage a tranquil night’s sleep, or as an aphrodisiac. Try it in a diffuser, bath oil or massage oil to encourage romance and a healthy libido.
