Neroli Essential Oil Uses

Named after the princess of Nerola in Italy, who wore it as a perfume, Neroli oil (Citrus aurantium) comes from the flower of the bitter orange tree. The same tree that produces Petitgrain Bigarade oil. Neroli oil has a light, floral scent that has a slight tone of citrus. It's quite lovely.

Neroli is an excellent skin oil. Great for mature, sensitive, and dry skin. Just like with Rose oil, Neroli oil takes a lot of work to extract and so it is very expensive. To make it easier for you to get this amazing oil, we also sell Blend of Neroli, which is Neroli oil blended in the carrier oil F.C.O. All of the properties and benefits are still the same, it just provides you with a more affordable option.

Combines Well With

Virtually all oils. Roman Chamomile, Coriander, Geranium, Benzoin, Clary Sage, Jasmine, Lavender, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Lemon, other citrus oils.
