Neroli Essential Oil
Spark more joy and indulge the senses with the uplifting aroma of Neroli Essential Oil. Also known as Bitter Orange, Orange Blossom, or Sour Orange, Neroli oil is steam distilled from the delicate flowers of the Bitter Orange Tree. It offers a delicate citrusy aroma that’s floral and herbal.
Rich in antioxidants like limonene and Vitamin C, Neroli essential oil benefits include natural skincare, haircare, and wound healing. It helps stimulate collagen production and elasticity, which plumps and tightens skin, while fading scars and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also nourishes the scalp, strengthens hair follicles, prevents infections, and decreases the healing time of small cuts and abrasions.
Try diffusing this essential oil to release anxiety and tension. Studies suggest that inhaling Neroli helps create more serotonin in the brain, which reduces stress while promoting feelings of happiness and safety. This essential oil is also used in home remedies to treat PMS and hormonal imbalances, stimulate libido, lower blood pressure, and help treat insomnia.
Neroli blends well with other citrus oils as well as floral oils and earthy, woody aromas like Sandalwood and Cedarwood. It also makes a wonderful diffuser scent all on its own! Fill your home with the bright yet gentle scent of Neroli to feel more grounded while promoting clarity, tranquility, and good cheer.
