Neroli (Orange Blossom)
Neroli essential oil, botanical name Citrus aurantium, is the highly fragrant, steam distilled oil of orange blossoms whose rejuvenating aroma has become indispensable to aromatherapy and perfumery. It's wonderfully floral, exotic, citrusy and earthy. Therapeutically, neroli is credited in aromatherapy to reduce anxiety, improve sleep quality, and decrease high blood pressure.
The citrusy essential oil has antimicrobial properties. Neroli is effective for improving the appearance of acne-prone skin and improving the appearance of other skin irritations.
Aside from the anti-microbial properties, neroli also has anti-aging effects. It can soften the appearance of wrinkles and scars.
