Neroli oil is one of the most captivating essential oils you could ever come across. Because of its exceptional benefits Neroli is a key ingredient in Rajeunir (Rejuvenating) Night Cream which produces remarkable results for your skin - rejuvenating and renewing your complexion, improving your skin texture, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and reducing the appearance of broken capillaries.
It is believed that Neroli is named for Anne Marie de la Trémoille, the 17th century Italian Princess of Nerola and wife of Prince Flavio of Orsini. She is said to have worn Neroli as a perfume and used it in baths and on everything from linens to scarves and gloves for its wonderful fragrance.
This amazing essential oil is steam distilled from the carefully winnowed blossoms of the bitter orange tree, but its heavenly fragrance is anything but bitter. Rather, it has an exquisite, subtle floral and slightly sweet citrus scent with hints of honey blossom.
Neroli is used in aromatherapy to invoke feelings of joy, alleviate anxiety and distress, promote calm and rejuvenate the spirit. Because of its tranquilizing effect on the sympathetic nervous system Neroli is used as a natural treatment for insomnia. The natural chemical constituents of Neroli include alpha pinene, geraniol, linalool and nerolidol which play a role in the excellent skin benefits Neroli provides.
Neroli is a superb emollient which makes the skin smooth, retain moisture and glow with health. According to Salvatore Battaglia in The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy, Neroli is useful for soothing irritated skin and has the ability to stimulate the growth of new and healthy cells.
Neroli is highly valued for its superb benefits, though costly (over $200 an ounce), it is truly worth it.
