Neroli (Citrus aurantium var. amara)
Want to come on a little mental journey with me?
I would ask you to close your eyes, but you couldn’t close them and keep reading . . . so just imagine it with me!
Imagine it’s nighttime, and you’re in a beautiful grove of orange trees in blossom. A cool, refreshing breeze is rustling through the leaves, surrounding you with the aromatic perfume of the blossoms. It’s such a tranquil place, and you feel peaceful and serene.
Now find a hammock under one of the trees and sleep like a baby.
Neroli essential oil comes from orange blossoms, and this is a great example of the feeling it can offer.
Okay, time to wake up! I want to share some ways to use Neroli essential oil for . . .
- Calming kids' anxiety
- Skin care
- Emotional balance
- Soothing tension
- Natural perfume
There is something very enchanting about Neroli essential oil. It may just become one of your favorites! Like many floral essential oils, Neroli has a strong scent. A few drops of it go a long way, which is great because the essential oil is very "precious." Producing the oil is very labor intensive, and it takes a lot of plant material to make a single drop.
