The essential oil from the blossom of the bitter orange is one of the most luxurious oils on Earth. Around one ton of orange blossoms are required to produce one litre of neroli. The Princess of Nerola could not get enough of the intoxicating scent of the oil. The oil now bears the name of the italian town which the princess lived in. The legend says that she soaked her ribbons and even her stationary in neroli. This made her a trendsetter because the entire Italian nobility quickly began using the wonderful scent of the bitter orange oil.
Neroli is mentioned in many herbal books due to its versatility. Its scent is not only pleasant and intoxicating, but it also has a positive effect on various ailments. For example, it can lift your mood and can help with depression. Furthermore, it is invigorating, an aphrodisiac and has a relaxing effect.
