Neroli Essential Oil, blossom of the bitter orange

2010/06/09

Organic Neroli essential oil is my favorite at the moment and I just had to post this lovely old-world image courtesy of wikipedia.

I’m so in love with this oil — sweet but not fruity and although not “bitter” it does have a wonderful little bite to it.  Delicious!

Therapeutically, neroli works on the nervous system, has a calming effect and increases oxygen to the blood and brain.  In lower doses it has a sedative effect; in higher doses (more than 2 drops) it is a stimulant.  It is known to be a natural anti-depressant, as well as an aphrodisiac.  According to renowned aromatherapist, Valerie Ann Worwood, neroli can be used to treat cirrhosis of the liver.  It is also a cardiac tonic.
