Neroli essential oil is very expensive and so we offer it diluted at 3% in jojoba oil. This oil is extracted by steam distillation of the fresh blossoms. It needs to be distilled as soon as picked to avoid decomposition. Also produced in the process of distillation is orange blossom hydrosol (also available from Warbotanicals). This hydrosol contains a high proportion of essential oils making it also very useful.
Neroli oil is particularly useful in the treatment of nervous disorders. It helps to soothe and calm an overactive mind and body, making it useful in the treatment of heart palpitations, hypertension and anxiety, (particularly associated with PMS or menopause). Also useful in the treatment of post natal depression. Additionally, neroli helps to calm an overactive stressed digestive system. Blends well with jasmine, clary sage, lemon, rose, cedarwood and lavender.
