The interesting thing about the bitter orange tree (Citrus aurantium) is that it actually produces three distinctly different essential oils. The peel of the nearly ripe fruit yields bitter orange oil while the leaves are the source of petitgrain essential oil. Last but certainly not least, neroli essential oil is steam-distilled from the small, white, waxy flowers of the tree.
The bitter orange tree is native to eastern Africa and tropical Asia, but today it’s also grown throughout the Mediterranean region and in the states of Florida and California. The trees bloom heavily in May, and under optimal growing conditions, a large bitter orange tree can produce up to 60 pounds of fresh flowers.
- Clear your head and reduce stress: Take a sniff of neroli essential oil while commuting to or from work. It’s sure to make rush hour a bit more bearable and your outlook a little brighter.
- Sweet dreams: Put a drop of the essential oil on a cotton ball and tuck it inside your pillowcase to help you relax into a great night’s slumber.
- Acne treatment: Since neroli essential oil has powerful antibacterial properties, it’s a great home remedy for acne to treat breakouts. Wet a cotton ball with water (to provide some dilution to the essential oil), and then add a few drops of neroli essential oil. Dab the cotton ball on the problem area gently once a day until the blemish clears up.
- Purify the air: Diffuse neroli essential oil in your home or office to clean the air and breathe in its anti-germ properties.
- Soak away stress: To naturally remedy anxiety, depression, hysteria, panic, shock and stress, use 3–4 drops of neroli essential oil in your next bath or foot bath.
- Alleviate headaches: Apply a few drops to a hot or cold compress to soothe a headache, especially one caused by tension.
- Lower blood pressure: By using neroli essential oil in a diffuser or just taking a few sniffs of it right out of the bottle, studies have shown blood pressure as well as cortisol levels can be lowered.
- Regenerate skin: Mix a drop or two of neroli essential oil with an application of an unscented face cream or oil (like jojoba or argan), and apply as normal.
- PMS relief: For a natural remedy for PMS cramps, mix a few drops of neroli into your bathwater.
- Natural antispasmodic: Use 2–3 drops in a diffuser or 4–5 drops in a blended massage oil and rub it over the lower abdomen to improve colon problems, diarrhea and nervous dyspepsia.
- Ease labor: Childbirth is certainly far from easy, but the essential oil of neroli can be used to help with fear and anxiety during labor. Diffuse it in the air, or include it in a massage oil for the lower back.
- Decrease stretch marks: Add a few drops of neroli essential oil to a cream, lotion or oil to reduce stretch marks and broken capillaries on the skin.
As always, you should never use neroli essential oil undiluted, in your eyes or in other mucus membranes. Do not take neroli essential oil internally unless you’re working with a qualified practitioner. As with all essential oils, keep neroli essential oil out of the reach of children.
Before applying neroli essential oil to your skin, always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (like your forearm) to make sure you don’t experience any negative reactions. Neroli is a nontoxic, non-sensitizing, nonirritant and non-phototoxic essential oil, but a patch test should always be performed to be on the safe side.
If you find that you fail the patch test and neroli irritates your skin, unfortunately you should discontinue use of neroli essential oill. If you do pass the patch test, then you can use neroli essential oil more widespread after diluting it with a carrier oil.
