Neroli Essential Oil comes from the flower of the same tree that we get Wild Orange Essential Oil. If you’ve ever walked down the street and smelled orange blossoms, that is what Neroli Essential Oil smells like.
Neroli is a great choice to use if you are a person who tends to overthink things. It has a way of stopping that craziness and is very relaxing.
Neroli essential oil is the rarest of citrus oils. Its evocative aroma has citrus and floral notes. Helpful during times of stress, anxiousness, or discouragement, Neroli offers emotionally calming benefits.
Neroli is known as The Oil of Shared Purpose and Partnership.* It is a unifying and stabilizing oil and is particularly helpful for calming troubled hearts in relationship conflict.
Neroli can help with the negative emotions of feeling conflicted, restless, impatient, bitter, frustrated, unsympathetic, disloyal, dispassionate, sexual inhibition, aloof, unkind, stagnant, or blaming.
Neroli can help turn those negative emotions into the positive properties of feeling patient, empathetic, kind, tolerant, fidelity, calm, intimate, sexual desire, resilient, cooperative, and committed.*

Like Rose, Jasmine, and Melissa, Neroli oil is a highly precious floral oil due to high labor and low yield. Each tiny white neroli blossom must be hand-picked at the correct time in its flowering cycle and quickly steam distilled to extract the essential oil. It takes 40 pounds of freshly picked blossoms to create one 15 mL bottle of pure Neroli essential oil—or over 200 pounds of blossoms to distill five bottles of the oil!
Neroli can be worn as a perfume to encourage creativity and self-expression. It also encourages feelings of love and romance. Like Rose, Neroli is considered a complete and well-balanced fragrance by itself. It also blends well with other oils, including floral, wood, and citrus oils.
