Neroli Essential Oil: The Pleasantly Fragrant Citrus Oil
During ancient times, neroli oil was essential in helping combat the plague, relieve fever and banish nervousness. The ancient Egyptian priests and priestesses also used this oil to heal their bodies, minds, and spirits.
Today, neroli oil is added to various fragrances and perfumes. Not only does it complement other citrusy notes, but it also acts as a natural fixative that helps maintain the original composition of the oils without losing its true fragrance. Neroli can be applied topically or diffused or inhaled. It helps improve skin health by regenerating and keeping your skin elastic, preventing the appearance of stretch marks, banishing acne, reducing the appearance of scars and helping heal broken capillaries.
In aromatherapy, neroli oil is valued for its calming and relaxing scent, which acts as a tranquilizer that can help alleviate anxiety and heart palpitations, relieve insomnia and even prevent or treat stress-related depression. Its fragrance can also help alleviate digestive issues, such as intestinal spasms, colitis, dyspepsia and diarrhea.
