Neroli Essential Oil, obtained by steam distilling the flowers of Citrus aurantium (bitter orange), is one of the 3 jewels for women of the many ALQVIMIA essential oils, together with Bulgarian Rose essential oil and Jasmine Absolute.
Neroli Essential Oil is obtained by steam distilling bitter orange floral water. Its quality, therapeutic properties and price are greater than Neroli absolute distilled with Hexane (Solvent). Bitter orange, also called the sour orange, was introduced to Europe, via Spain, by the Arabs in the 10th century. Bitter orange cultivation was mostly centred around the Seville area, where it is still grown in order to obtain Orange Blossom water, used in pharmaceutical, cosmetic and baking products.
Neroli Essential Oil owes its name to Anne Marie de la Tremoille, the princess of Nerola in the 17th century, who introduced the use of this essential oil to Italian high society. The Princess of Nerola used copious amounts of this particular essential oil for her skin, using it to perfume her body, gloves and hats.
Cosmetically, Neroli Essential Oil has stimulating, deodorising, invigorating and activating properties.
It is a highly effective moisturiser and reduces stress.
It is suitable for treating acne.
The delicate fragrance of Neroli flowers is associated with purity, and it is said that the essential oil helps people deal with trauma. Many different ancient cultures have applied it to highly emotional energy centres, such as the solar plexus and the heart chakra, to purify negative feelings and to overcome painful memories from the past.
