Neroli or Orange Blossom essential oil is a wonderfully rich and exotic addition to any aromatherapy blend. The rich fragrance, adds an element of luxury to homemade aromatherapy preparations, combining woody undertones with a delicious orange top note. Neroli essential oil is extracted from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree, native to Asia and warmer regions of Western Europe. Interestingly, the name Neroli interestingly is not related to the plant itself, but, instead, to a 17th Century Italian princess, famous for using orange blossom to fragrance her gloves and bath water. The versatile essential oil can be used in both uplifting blends when combined with citrus fragrances, such as Lime, Bergamot and Orange, and in blends designed to help you relax when combined with resin fragrances such as Sandalwood, Frankincense and Myrrh.
