Metaphysical properties and history of Neroli

The scent of Neroli is sweet and fresh, and could be easily described as  a blend of sharp citrus and exotic, spicy tones; airy and floral. This magical scent gets extracted by steam distillation from the blossoms of the bitter Seville orange tree. Light, refreshing, and adaptable, the Neroli’s gorgeous, uni-sexy scent makes the  perfect fragrance for summer.


Neroli’s fresh, citrus scent can be traced back for centuries, finding it  in most ancient and modern cultures around the globe.

Ancient Egyptian priests and priestesses used Neroli oil in houses of worship, the same way that incense is used in churches today. 

In Ancient China, the bitter orange blossom was a symbol of purity, innocence, and fertility, and brides would use orange blossoms in their bridal bouquets. Because of this tradition, the expression “to gather orange blossoms” would eventually come to mean “to seek a wife.”

The name “Neroli” is widely believed to come from a small Italian city near Rome, during the 17th century  the Princess Anna Maria de la Tremoille of Nerola, Italy fell in love with the fragrance, which perfumed the air in spring. Princess Anna Maria loved the scent so much, that she began to  distill the bitter orange blossoms to make Neroli Essential Oil, which she used to perfume her clothes, gloves, and baths. She became known as “Princess Nerola,” introducing the scent to her homeland and starting a craze for the scent.

The uplifting scent has been used for centuries as a natural antidepressant, helping to combat negative emotions, insomnia and exhaustion and improve overall well-being. Widely used today in aromatherapy, Neroli eases tension and stress, helping to relax the mind, body, and spirit.

In skincare, Neroli has been proven to aid in acne and scarring, as the oil helps to stimulate cell regeneration. Also contains natural antioxidant properties that keep the complexion smooth, balanced, and glowing by improving circulation, protecting from free-radicals, and helping skin to maintain a healthy oil and moisture balance
