Neroli, True 15% in Jojoba 5 ml


Citrus aurantium - Tunisia

Monara’s extraordinary True Neroli essential oil from Tunisia starts with a very etheric, uplifting, fresh, intense, lush white flowery aroma, then combines woody undertones with a delicious orange top note.

Highly sought after for its delightful high notes, Neroli (sometimes referred to as Orange Flower oil) has a magnificent sweet aroma. Interestingly, Neroli is derived from the same tree as Petitgrain. The flowers of the tree are cultivated to produce Neroli while the leaves and twigs are used to make Petitgrain.

Quick fact: Neroli oil was named in the 1680s when the princess of Nerole perfumed her gloves, stationery, shawls, and bathwater with the scent. For centuries, Neroli has been added to cosmetic products, colognes, and perfumes.


Neroli essential oil comes from the lovely white “orange blossom” flowers of the bitter orange tree: Citrus aurantium var. amara, or Citrus bigaradia. This evergreen tree grows up to 10 meters (32 feet) high with glossy dark green leaves and fragrant white flowers with fleshy petals, which typically bloom in May.

Neroli essential oil can help to clear excess heat arising from the body, mind or emotions. In so doing it is excellent for insomnia, restlessness, heart palpitations and is also indicated for high blood pressure. Neroli, as a potent regulator of the nervous system, is particularly helpful with tense conditions of the mind and emotions. Studies have shown that farnesol, which naturally occurs in Neroli essential oil (approx. 9 % of the complete oil) inhibits tumor growth, and promotes death of cancer cells. It is anti-inflammatory and relieves muscle cramps, muscle spasm, and menstrual cramps. Neroli is used successfully to treat menopausal symptoms simply by inhalation. It decreases blood pressure and cortisol levels supporting the cardiovascular system and acts as a natural antimicrobial.

Eases states of stress, anxiety, insomnia, anger, grief, depression, irritability and frigidity. Aids in resolving repressed emotions particularly as they may relate to guilt and shame. Helps release deep body armoring patterns especially due to entrenched tension born from lack of safety or outright abuse in family of origin. Promotes sensual comfort and joy. Encourages lightness of being.

Generally non-toxic, non-irritant, non-sensitizing, to the skin although Neroli - Citrus aurantium can be photosensitizing if used undiluted.
