Skin Care

One of the ultimate oils for skin care. It has a powerfully rejuvenating and regenerative effect on the skin.

It tones the skin and helps to reduce wrinkles. Use in all creams, lotions and gels for moisturising, even for sensitive skin.

Helps with scars and stretch marks so ideal in body butters for use during pregnancy or for people who have lost weight and have lost some of their skin tone.

Excellent in face masks as it will not irritate when left on the face near the nose and eyes. Smoothes the skin and helps to reduce thread veins.

Neroli balances sebum production so is a great choice for oily skin as well as dry skin.

It helps with atrophying muscles and nervous spasms so ideal for massage lotions and pre sports oils or for muscles affected by debility or fatigue.

It is intensely relaxing and is said to relieve chronic anxiety and depression as well as stress. Whilst we cannot confirm these as medical claims, from a cosmetic standpoint, we would agree that in a night cream, these are very desirable factors for beauty.

It is fungicidal and although it might seem a little excessive, would make a beautifully luxurious foot cream that is so different to the usual type.

 

Hair Care

It balances sebum production in the scalp so will help to normalise greasy hair.

 

Other

As an antispasmodic and relaxant, it is ideal to use in calming massage blends.

Used in a diffuser, it will scent the air in a room and calm everyone down.

 

Suggested Blends

Blend with a small amount of Geranium to balance sebum production in oily and dry skin.

Combine with Helichrysum for repairing skin damage and reducing wrinkles.

Use with Pumpkin Seed Oil for a lifting effect on sagging skin.

With Fragonia in an oil burner to relax and have healing meditation.

 

Cautions/Contraindications

None. However, it is so intensely relaxing, that it should not be used if you need to keep a very clear head.

Traditional Aromatherapy Uses

Traditionally used by qualified aromatherapists for any situation where there is a strong emotional aspect to the ailment.

Blend with Roman Chamomile and Melissa to “reconnect” the head and body when feeling separated like after illness or shock. The blend realigns the chakras.

Use with Rosemary after a stroke with medical approval if needed. This will also help later on when massaged into atrophying muscles.

Adding it to Walnut vegetable oil to assist with dyslexia.

    

Historical Information

The naming of Neroli Oil is attributed to an Italian Princess (the Countess of Nerola), who used it in her bathwater and soaked her gloves in it overnight. The elbow length leather gloves would be worn at an evening event and as they dried on the skin, the leather would tighten up and emphasise the princess’s elegant arms. As a narcotic, the fragrance given off as she moved her arms around and danced would have been hard to anyone nearby not be affected by.

Neroli used to be worn by prostitutes in Spain and its haunting fragrance would enable their customers to find them. As a contrast, it is now quite usual to have orange flowers in a bridal headdress and bouquet to symbolize purity.

It is still used in traditional Eau de Cologne formulations.
