We love the smell of anything citrusy and there is no exception to Neroli. Neroli originated from Italy, comes from the bitter orange tree, and is known by many other names such as orange oil and bitter orange oil. There is nothing bitter about this oil! It’s scent is very light, sweet, fresh, and reminds you of freshly sliced oranges. We have friends who have oily skin and they are always asking what is the best and most natural way to take care of oily skin. We gave them Neroli oil and they loved it and have been using it ever since!
Why is it great for oily skin?
There are a number of reasons why Neroli oil is great for oily skin. It promotes cell regeneration and it’s anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory which is great for oily skin. Neroli will help balance and tame oily skin, brighten your complexion, and help retain your natural moisture. It is also known for its aromatherapy benefits of calming and healing skin and the scent uplifts any mood. Neroli blends with any citrus oils and rosemary. You can use Neroli by itself, but we like to dilute it with our favorite carrier oil, Jojoba Oil. Fill a spray bottle with warm spring water and add a few drops of Neroli along with your other favorite essential oils for the perfect blend.
Here is the recipe you need:
4 tablespoons of Jojoba Oil
6 drops of Neroli Oil
5 drops of Carrot Seed Oil
Combine everything together and mix well before using.
