Neroli Essential Oils Recipes

The essential oil of Neroli is distilled from the fresh-picked flowers of the orange tree, making it a citrus family member. Neroli is one of the most expensive and precious of the essential oils. One ton of hand-picked blossoms produces only one quart of essential oil. The best quality neroli oil comes from the bitter orange tree, which is cultivated for its perfume.


Neroli has powerful psychological properties. It helps relieve the strain of long-term tension, and it is a wonderful natural aid for insomnia. Neroli also helps to regulate heart rhythm and lowers blood pressure.
