What is Neroli?
Our natural world is filled with botanicals with the potential to help our mind, body, and spirit. Using natural botanicals allows us to enjoy potential health benefits while avoiding the negative downside of man-made chemicals created in laboratories.
Neroli oil is the common name for the essential oil, Citrus aurantium and sometimes referred to as orange blossom oil. This essential oil is distilled from the bitter orange flower using a steam distillation process.
Its scent is rich and floral with lush, citrusy overtones. Because its aromatics alone seem to have a soothing effect on the mind and body, neroli oil is often used as an ingredient in body lotions and cosmetics, including many award-winning and best-selling products made by Eminence Organics.
Neroli oil doesn’t just smell amazing, it also provides a multitude of health benefits.
In 2014, a group of scientists published the results of an experiment conducted on multiple groups of postmenopausal women to measure neroli oil’s effects on menopausal symptoms, stress, and estrogen levels. The results were quite amazing.
As compared to the control group that did not use neroli oil, the women who used neroli oil showed significant improvements in all of these areas, as well as experiencing lower diastolic blood pressure and improved pulse rate. The study concluded, “Neroli oil may have potential as an effective intervention to reduce stress and improve the endocrine system.”
Neroli oil has many benefits for skincare, too. Citrus oils are considered a natural preservative because of their broad spectrum of biological activities including microbial and antioxidant effects. Chemical components of the botanical include terpenes, flavonoids, carotenes, and coumarins believed to be responsible for those effects. In short, neroli oil stimulates skin cells to regenerate and is antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and pain-relieving.
