Neroli is a type of essential oil that is derived from the bitter orange tree (Citrus aurantium). It is known for its sweet, floral aroma and is often used in perfumes, colognes, and other fragranced products. You can find neroli in our fragrances, including Iceland and Theo.
The history of neroli oil dates back to the 17th century, when it was first extracted from the flowers of the bitter orange tree by a Italian princess named Anna Maria de la Tremoille, who was known as Princess Nerola. The princess was said to have used neroli oil to scent her gloves, which became all the rage among fashionable society. The oil became known as "neroli" in her honor.
In addition to its use in the fragrance industry, neroli oil has also been used in traditional medicine for its calming and relaxing properties. It is believed to help reduce anxiety, stress, and insomnia, and is sometimes used as a natural remedy for skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. Neroli oil is also used in aromatherapy to help promote feelings of well-being and balance.
