Essential Oil Spotlight: Neroli

November 15, 2017

 

 With such an exotic name, you would never guess that Neroli essential oil comes from the small white flower of the bitter orange tree. It's related to Wild Orange (from the peel) and Petitgrain (from the leaves and twigs). The bitter orange tree grows in Egypt, which is where doterra's Neroli is steam distilled.

 

Neroli has a sweet, floral scent with a hint of citrus. According to research, Neroli instills relaxation, uplifts mood, reduces feelings of anxiousness, and promotes overall well-being. Applied topically, Neroli can be used to soothe skin and reduce the appearance of blemishes. 

 

I love using the Neroli Touch on blemishes to help sooth my skin. I also apply it topically to my chest and throat to help me feel less anxious. It's part of my "first aid kit" and I have it with me at all times.

 

Neroli was given its name after the Countess of Nerola, an Italian Princess from the 17th century who used it to perfume her gloves and bathwater. Today it's used in expensive colognes and perfumes, it is costly to produce since the flowers need to be harvested and distilled carefully and quickly. 

 

 

Uses

  • Apply topically to help soothe the skin.

  • Combine Neroli, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, and Marjoram essential oils with fractionated coconut oil for a relaxing and aromatic massage experience.

  • Apply to pulse points throughout the day to uplift mood.

  • Use when experiencing anxious feelings.

Directions for Use

Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area.

 

Cautions

Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
