Sourced from the Bitter Orange Tree Flowers, Neroli is often used in perfumes for its pleasant scent. It has also found a home in aromatherapy where it has been studied for its calming effects. But it also has circulatory stimulation properties, anti-microbial effects and anti-oxidant. Used as part of a daily skin care routine, neroli improves elasticity, stimulates new cell growth, reduces fine veins and dilated capillary beds while , softening wrinkles and scars. Stable in sun exposed situations, Neroli is the perfect base for other skin actives because it increases blood flow and does not degrade with heat or UV exposure. It is also helps relieve under eye circles, balances oil production, cleans dirt, bacteria, and unclogs pores.
