History: Although Neroli owes its name to the 17th Century princess of Nerola in Italy (who famously used it to perfume her bath and gloves), it had been used for hundreds of years prior to this. The Ancient Chinese used the fragrance as a symbol of purity and innocence, so was traditionally used in bridal bouquets. Ancient Egyptians also favoured Neroli for its spiritual and physical benefits, burning it as incense. In the 10th Century, it was brought into Spain by the Arabs, becoming the emblematic tree of Seville. But it was the princess of Nerola that launched Neroli into the limelight and its wider use in the perfume industry.

How Does Neroli Boost Skin Health?
This is one of Neroli’s main actions – known for its ability to regenerate skin cells and improve elasticity of skin, as well as its low toxicity, it benefits dry or mature skin. Because it can revive skin at a cellular level, Neroli can help in treating scars and stretch marks. It also helps maintain the right oil balance and helps stimulate the elimination of skin cells.

Can Neroli Help the Nervous System?
One of the most effective oils for low moods, Neroli is a tonic for the nervous system. It helps promote sleep, clear the mind and lift the spirits, benefitting those suffering from exhaustion, anxiety and depression. This, as a result reduces the stress hormone, cortisol, which in turn helps to lower blood pressure. It is also a helpful first-aid treatment for hysteria and shock.
Does Neroli Soothe Inflammation?
The relaxing action of Neroli extends to lowering inflammation, reducing discomfort and swelling in joints, muscles and tissues. This means it can also be useful in treating digestive cramps, particularly those from a nervous origin. Studies have found that Neroli has the ability to reduce sensitivity to pain, helping the body to function better and useful for a variety of conditions.
