Neroli essential oil is extracted from the fragrant white blossom of the Bitter Orange tree (Petitgrain essential oil comes from the same tree but is derived from the twigs and leaves). Neroli is also known as 'orange blossom' and its name is said to have originated from the Italian princess, Anne-Marie de la Tremoille who was the Countess of Nerola. The Countess used the exquisitely fragranced aromatherapy oil as a perfume and to scent her bathwater and gloves. Today, Neroli essential oil is still used as a key ingredient in the world-famous fragrance 'Eau de Cologne'.
Neroli is produced in many countries but the oils from France and Tunisia are considered by many to be of the highest quality.
Neroli essential oil is a warm, sweet oil which has been revered for centuries for its positive effect on the human psyche. It is an ideal essential oil to counteract nervous exhaustion and emotional stress and is also beneficial for all skin types.
