The Origin of Neroli Essential Oil

Neroli essential oil is produced from the flowers of the bitter orange tree, also known as the Seville orange. The oil is also known as orange blossom. Orange Blossom flowers are steam-distilled to produce the wonderful scent of neroli. It takes an immense amount of the flowers to produce the essential oil.

The tree is native to China but has been cultivated for hundreds of years in the countries bordering the Mediterranean. Neroli is used as a key ingredient in the world-famous fragrance 'Eau de Cologne' and many other perfumes. It is a pale yellow liquid that has an exquisite, floral, sweet smell which is powerful yet also light and refreshing.

How Neroli Essential Oil Can Help Promote Healthy Skin

Neroli essential oil is known for its ability to promote healthy, glowing skin. It has natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can help to treat acne-causing bacteria and reduce redness and swelling. This makes it an excellent choice for those with oily or acne-prone skin.

In addition to its cleansing properties, neroli essential oil possesses several properties which make it ideal for treating dry, mature skin, wrinkles and broken capillaries. It is also rich in antioxidants and these powerful compounds help protect the skin from free radicals, which can cause premature ageing and damage to the skin cells. It can help to stimulate the elimination of dead skin cells, thus imparting a glowing, fresh complexion. By incorporating neroli essential oil into your vegan skincare routine, you can help keep your skin looking youthful and radiant.
