AQ Essential Oil - NEROLI
Neroli (Citrus officinale aurantium) - India. Our Neroli oil is steam distilled from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree (oil extracted from the leaves and twigs is known as Petitgrain oil).
Neroli has a delicate, bitter-sweet floral fragrance, and is considered one of the most effective sedative and anti-depressant essential oils. It is useful for treating depression, or used as a natural tranquiliser for anxiety or shock. Neroli is well-known for its ability to relieve muscle spasm of the smooth muscles, especially the intestines, and so is extremely useful for chronic diarrhoea, especially when related to nervous tension. It has been shown to be an effective and therapeutic choice for the management of pain and inflammation (acute and chronic).
A study published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine concluded that the inhalation of neroli essential oil can have immediate and continuous positive effects on blood pressure, stress reduction and reduced cortisol levels. The oil has also been shown to exhibit antimicrobial, antifungal and antioxidant activities.
In skincare, neroli is suitable for all skin types; it's non-irritant, so is one of the few oils suitable for the care and treatment of sensitive skin. Useful in treatment of broken capillaries, and also stimulates cellular activity and growth.
AROMA QUEEN PREMIUM ESSENTIAL OILS
Our very special Premium Range is for anyone who appreciates quality: top grade oil & plant species, sought after country of origin, as well as many unusual, exotic and hard to find oils. We have searched far and wide to find the best quality oils - all are 100% pure undiluted plant based oils with no additives, synthetics or preservatives. We do NOT stock 'nature identical' or 'nature blend' oils - these are chemical concoctions of ingredients similar to what is usually found in a plant oil, and as such do not contain the same therapeutic qualities as pure oils.
Our 10ml Premium Essential Oils are packaged in Aromatherapy-safe cobalt blue glass with silver cap, complete with top ID label - a necessity for anyone with more than a couple of bottles in their collection. 4ml precious oils are supplied in a small dropper vial. 50 and 100ml bulk sizes are available for some oils, and are supplied in an amber glass bottle - if you require a bulk size and it isn't listed just send us an email and we'd be happy to give you a quote - contact us at [email protected]
If you're new to aromatherapy, or want to stock up on a few different oils, please take a look in our PACKS & KITS section for discounted Starter and Advanced packs.
SAFETY & USAGE
As with all essential oils, our oils must be diluted before application to skin, must NEVER be administered internally, and must always be kept out of the reach of children. Some must be avoided when pregnant (see individual listings), and others should not be applied to the skin before exposure to sunlight. Read the top section of each individual oil listing for warnings and contra-indications on that oil, and also head to our 'LEARN MORE' section for a quick introduction to aromatherapy if you are unfamiliar with essential oils. For anyone starting out we'd recommend even a basic introductory booklet on the subject (see our BOOKS section for a selection of booklets and textbooks).
Always remember, Aromatherapy is intended to complement, not replace traditional medicine.
