What is Neroli Oil?
Neroli oil is actually derived from orange blossom oil. The oil itself is made from the delicate flowers that can be found on orange trees, Citrus Aurantium or Seville orange trees, which are so delicate, that slight bruising can release their oil.
The delicate white blossoms are gathered, usually by hand, in late April to early May and the oil is extracted by steam distillation.
Why does Saltee use Neroli Oil in our Saltee hands sanitising hand gel?
Regenerative – neroli oil stimulates skin cells to regenerate, giving it anti-scarring properties. This makes neroli a fantastic ingredient to even out skin tone.
Natural anti-bacterial – Neroli oil also has natural anti-septic and anti-bacterial properties making it the perfect ingredient to use within our sanitising hand gel.
Intense moisturiser – Neroli Essential Oil is a hydration powerhouse, with an incredible ability to soften, replenish and lock in moisture. Applied topically, this Bitter Orange Oil will provide your skin with a protective barrier to ensure that your complexion remains radiant and dewy all day long.
Reduces anxiety and stress – Neroli oil is known for its calming effects which also help the brain release serotonin. Studies suggest that neroli essential oil may help ease anxiety. In a 2014 study published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine. neroli essential oil was found to reduce anxiety and alleviate sleep problems in a group of coronary angioplasty patients in an intensive care unit.
Beautiful, delicate scent – Neroli oil is an essential oil produced from the blossom of the bitter orange tree. Its scent is sweet, honeyed and somewhat metallic with green and spicy facets. Orange blossom is also extracted from the same blossom and both extracts are extensively used in perfumery. A scent just as dreamy as your favourite parfum.
