Neroli essential oil and all that it can do are only possible because of the gifts Mother Nature has given to us. Today and every day, we at Young Living are celebrating all that the planet provides for us. And just like you have to take care of earth, you also have to take care of yourself. Check out Neroli essential oil and how it can help you with everything from skin care to self-care.

Where does Neroli oil come from?

Neroli oil comes from the bitter orange tree, Citrus aurantium amara. The oil is steam-distilled from the delicate orange blossoms, which need to be handled with great care to avoid crushing the petals.

Fun fact: Petitgrain essential oil comes from the leaves and twigs of the bitter orange tree.

Is Neroli oil a citrus or a floral? 

Is it citrus? Is it floral? What does Neroli smell like, anyway? The complex aroma of Neroli essential oil may leave you puzzling over how to categorize it. Because the oil comes from the flowers of an orange tree, it has both citrus and floral notes. However, unlike Orange essential oil or other citrus oils, it is not photosensitive—so you can still get some sun and work on a tan after applying it.
