Uses For Neroli Essential Oil

Apr 27, 2008
The Neroli essential oil has a sweet floral scent and is extracted by steam distillation or enfleurage from the aromatic blossom petals of the orange tree. Neroli essential oil has been used for centuries and is considered to be very user friendly. It will make a great addition to your essential oil collection.

It is very likely (almost guaranteed) that if you decide to try neroli essential oil you will find it "cut" with another essential oil, this is very acceptable and does not reduce the benefits that this special oil will provide. Manufacturers do not generally supply 100% pure neroli essential oil because the cost would make it impossible for most consumers to purchase. It requires approximately 1000 pounds of orange blossoms to produce one pound of neroli essential oil.

Interest in neroli essential oil has increased in recent years as the anti aging arena has gained popularity. Neroli essential oil is very effective in improving skin health and improving its over all structure. Many users believe this exceptional oil is the answer to not only ward off wrinkles but to banish the ones that are already in place. This confidence is do to its skin cell regeneration properties that strengthen the elasticity of the skin and reverse existing damage. The uses for the skin are numerous and include the following:

1. To clear up acne simply put a few drops of neroli essential oil on a cotton ball and apply directly to affected area.

2. Neroli essential oil is well known for its ability to promote skin cell regeneration therefore for maturing skin, add two or three drops to your favorite non scented facial cream and apply as usual.

3. To diminish scars and stretch marks massage affected area with a mixture of three or four drops of neroli essential oil and a carrier (lanolin is recommended).

Neroli essential oil is also prized for its antispasmodic properties and effectiveness as a natural tranquillizer. Following are some of the other applications of neroli essential oil:

1. If you are feeling low, depressed, anxious, stressed or are simply drained of energy give your self a boost. Try adding ten drops of essential oil to your bath water or a few drops in a diffuser.
