What is Neroli Essential Oil?
Neroli, a European Nobility Favorite
The name Neroli originated from an Italian princess – Nerola, in the 17th century. She was fascinated by the scent of neroli, and perfumed her bath and clothing with it; therefore, the use of Neroli became a fashionable icon in the European upper class realm. As a result, giving Neroli its fame as “the princess flower”.
Neroli essential oils can be sourced from the flowers of two different kinds of orange tree species: sweet orange trees and bitter orange trees. Neroli essential oils from bitter orange trees are nearly translucent with a light yellow shade and a bitter sweet intoxicating scent. Inna Organic chooses to utilize the bitter orange trees , it’s 2-5 times more expensive compared to its “sister oil” sweet orange oils mainly due to the extraction process, as 1000 pounds of bitter orange flower blossoms can only produce 1 pound of neroli essential oils that we use – truly an “oil for royalty”.
What Are The Benefits Of Neroli Essential Oil?
According to Patricia Davis, author of Aromatherapy: An A-Z, neroli oil stimulates skin cells to regenerate, giving it anti-scarring properties. This makes neroli a fantastic ingredient to rub on stretch marks, age spots and scars.

It can promote skin metabolism, prevent the deposition of melanin, and boost skin radiance; moreover, it has an amazing moisturizing effect, enhancing skin plumping and elasticity. It is the top ingredient of choice for brightening skincare.
2. Elegant aroma for better relaxation
Neroli essential oils smell distinctly sweet, its elegant scent is not only preferable for premium perfumes, but also great for stress alleviation. Because neroli oil brings balance and calmness, its aroma is able to bring “healing” through reducing anxiety and soothing emotions.
Enjoy All Three Orange Tree Scents at Once
Inna Organic uses “organic neroli essential oil blends”, which contains neroli essential oils mixed with its “sister” oils: bitter orange leaf essential oil and sweet orange essential oil.
These three essential oils all originate from orange trees: neroli oil extracted from its flowers, bitter orange leaf oil from the leaves, and sweet orange oil from the peels of sweet orange trees. Sweet orange oil smells fresh and sweet, with a cheerful vitality; the molecular structure of bitter orange leaf oils is similar to that of neroli oils; hence, they both have a bitter and tinted sweet flavor.
The oil blends of these three orange-sourced essential oils possess a unique floral and citrus aroma, with the elegant fragrance from orange blossoms, mature bitter tone from bitter orange leaves, and fresh scent from sweet orange. Inna’s neroli essential oil blends allow you to enjoy three kinds of citrus aroma at the same time, brightening the skin while softening its texture and bringing back its glow.
