Over the past few years, natural oils have been thrust upon into the skincare spotlight and deservedly so.
With a huge range of natural oils from fruit and plants that can help your skincare routine, no matter what your skin type and skin concern there is a natural oil that will be able to help.
In this article, we’re going to look at the wonderful benefits of Neroli Oil, an oil that hasn’t hit the spotlight as hard as Tea Tree Oil, Coconut Oil and Argan Oil.
It was back in the 17th century when the Italian aristocrats discovered Neroli oil and it’s wonderful rejuvenating properties.
Neroli Oil is produced from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree, which is native to Africa and Asia, but is grown throughout the Mediterranean. It takes up to a thousand pounds of orange blossoms to make just one pound of the oil and do so by placing the blossoms into a low-pressure, water-steam distillation to obtain the oil.
Skin benefits of Neroli Oil
Well, where do we start? Neroli Oil has so many wonderful skin benefits for everyone of all ages.
From soothing and regenerating skin to improving the flexibility of the skin and helping to combat acne. If that isn’t enough, it is also packed full of antioxidants, has plenty of Vitamin C within it and has antibacterial and antiseptic properties. What’s not to love?
As we age, our skin loses its ability to regenerate itself as quickly as it did when we were younger, but thanks to this clever, natural oil, it can help not only repair skin but rejuvenate it too, by improving the skin’s elasticity. It works to regenerate skin cells at their cellular level, meaning it can help in the fight against not only wrinkles but stretch marks and scars too.
If your skin suffers the daily stresses of life, including pollution, Neroli Oil will be your very best friend at helping to calm and soothe your skin as well as fighting off those free radicals it accumulates throughout the day thanks to its antioxidant properties.
Improve symptoms of the Menopause
A relaxing scent that can help to reduce stress, and ease menopause symptoms, a study in 2014 showed results of lower blood pressure and improved levels of estrogen concentrations when inhaled twice a day, helping to overall improve the endocrine system.
Neroli Oil can be applied directly to a wound when diluted, to prevent infection and tetanus from settling in. It is a great natural antiseptic too and works wonders when you can’t get to a doctor straight away.
Oily or Acne-prone skin?
If you suffer from oily or acne prone skin then you would probably prefer to stay away from applying an oil to your face, but you’d actually be wrong.
