We truly don't hear enough about Neroli Essential Oil, but don't worry! We have five major benefits that will definitely encourage you to purchase Neroli Oil.
What is Neroli Essential Oil?
Neroli Oil is distilled from the flowers of the Citrus aurantium, which is a bitter orange tree and if you inhale Neroli, you'll definitely smell the orange-blossom aroma. Since it has a citrus scent and comes from a flower, Neroli blends well with other floral and citrus essential oils like Orange, Grapefruit, Juniper, and Rose essential oil. Neroli oil is mild, refreshing and unlike other citrus oils, it won't cause photo toxicity in direct sunlight.
Benefits of Neroli
#1 Reduces Stress & Anxiety
Feeling anxious, irritated or stressed out? Neroli can help with that, as it is known for being sedative, tranquilizing and relaxing when inhaled or diffused. Because of these properties, Neroli oil can also help with depression, insomnia and high blood pressure.
#2 Treats Acne
There are several properties that make Neroli oil a savior to acne-prone skin, including antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. The anti-bacterial and antimicrobial agents kills bacteria, dirt and fungus which is sometimes the root cause of acne. The anti-inflammatory properties of Neroli oil calms the skin and reduces any redness, irritation, or swelling..
#3 Rejuvenates Skin
Neroli is often said to be cytophylactic, which means that it has properties to promote cell regeneration and improve elasticity of skin. This is perfect for acne-prone, irritated, oily, sensitive, environmentally damaged skin or mature skin. Also, it helps reduce the damage of stretch marks and scarring.
#4 Moisturizes Skin
We obviously wouldn't be recommending the use of Neroli Oil if it didn't moisturize the skin (I mean, we DO specialize in moisturizing products). However, Neroli goes a step further, and helps regulate the amount of sebum that our skin produces. Keep in mind that sebum is an oily substance that secretes from our pores and while it protects our skin and keeps it looking supple, too much sebum can lead to clogged pores and acne. So ladies with oily skin -- this essential oil is for you!
#5 Reduces Effects of PMS and Menopause
Ladies, that time of the month can be brutal, but instead of reaching for Midol, try mixing Neroli oil with a carrier oil and massaging your stomach or diffusing in your home. Because of its calming effects, Neroli oil can reduce cramps, mood swings, aches and more.
