Citrus aurantium var amara (Neroli)

Citrus aurantium var. amara

A precious 'Jewel of Aromatherapy', Neroli is one of the richest, most exquisite and most expensive essential oils in the world. It's namesake is credited to a princess of Nerola in Italy, who delighted in wearing the oil as a perfume.

Neroli is associated with innocence and purity and in the 18th century the essential oil, which is responsible for the wonderful scent of the orange flower, was used as a primary ingredient in the first Eau de Cologne.

Neroli essential oil is obtained by steam distilling the flower blossoms of the bergamot (Citrus aurantium var amara, syn. Citrus bigardia) tree. It takes one ton of flowers to produce just one kilogram of oil - hence it's expensiveness.

Neroli is slightly hypnotic and wonderfully nurturing before a stressful event or after a traumatic experience. It is the best choice for treating anxiety and related psychological issues. Its calming, soothing, sleep-inducing qualities can benefit overwrought bodies and and bring welcome relief to insomnia.

Neroli is a non-toxic, non-irritant, non-sensitizing and non-photo-toxic essential oil, making it an invaluable treatment for dry, sensitive or mature skin, which blossoms under its gentle care.

Excellent for all skin types, but particularly valuable in the care of mature, dry and sensitive skin, Neroli helps with regeneration of healthy new skin tissue and has a noticeable rejuvenating effect on mature skin.
