Neroli essential oil uses and properties include being one of the safest to use on skin. The neroli oil skin benefits extend to include mental and physical therapeutic abilities. This is one of the semi-expensive essential oils, so probably not cost efficient for making soap, but perfect for direct skin care. This neroli oil is created from the flowers of the orange blossom and very versatile. The flowers are from the bitter orange tree, and to get one pound, or 16 ounces, of essential oil, approximately 1000 lbs of orange blossoms are needed and processed by steam distillation extraction methods.

One of the safest essential oils and known for being non-toxic, non-sensitizing, non-irritating and non-photo-toxic. Yet, the neroli essential oil uses include being well known for being relaxing, and can relieve anxiety, depression,fear, shock and stress. It’s calming benefits can include soothing the digestive tract, intestinal spasms, colitis and diarrhea.
Other therapeutic benefits include alleviating insomnia, treating heart palpitations, headaches, neuralgia and vertigo. Reported to also have the ability to act as a bactericidal, deodorant and emollient.
This essential oil is kind to your skin as well. By regenerating skin cells and useful in preventing scar tissue, promoting a smoother skin texture, lessening stretch marks and broken capillaries.
It’s smell is often described as being exquisite, and although it is one of the more expensive essential oils, a little of it can go a long way. When buying, because of this oils natural scent being strong, many suppliers dilute this oil. Even diluted, it still gives off a nice strong smell. Check around at prices, I see it selling from $20 on ounce (diluted) to over $100 an ounce. Some essential oils are still strong when diluted, like 10% Rose, yet 10% Sandalwood is one that you can barely smell.
Here is a recipe for a facial blend known to help combat aging skin:
- 1 T of coconut oil
- 1 tsp of seabuckthorn oil
- 1/8 tsp of neroli essential oil
- 1/8 tsp of rose essential oil – diluted versions good too
If you don’t have seabuckthorn or rose, still give this recipe a try. One of my favorite facial oils is rose hip oil or jojoba. A lesser expensive option to neroli essential oil, is another essential oil that is derived from the leaves and twigs of the very same tree. This oil is called Petitgrain, and it carries some, if not all, of the same wonderful healing qualities as Neroli.
