Background Information on Neroli Essential Oil
Neroli essential oil is one of the most important of the flower oils. Neroli was named in 1680 when the princess of Nerole perfumed her gloves and bathwater with the scent. Neroli is derived from the flower blossoms of the Bitter Orange tree, also called the Seville, or Bigarade Orange tree. The tree has an average height between 10 and 30 feet, with small white flowers and dull thorns that range from 1” to 3 1/8” in length. Although its natural habitat ranges through the Far East, India, and the Himalayas, man has carried its seed all over the world, planting it in almost all the subtropical regions where the tree flourishes.
Egyptian royalty used Neroli essential oil to heal the body, mind, and spirit. During the middle ages, it found use in combating the plague, diminishing fever, and calming the nerves due to its sedative properties.
