Neroli Essential Oil is derived from the pretty, delicate blossoms of the bitter Seville orange. The cheerful, captivating floral scent is uplifting and calming and is said to bring inner peace and well-being.
Neroli flowers have long been a a symbol of purity, fertility and everlasting love, with their use dating back to Ancient China where they were used in wedding ceremonies and celebrations. The blossoms represented the wish for a marriage to produce abundant offspring, just as the orange was a prosperous fruit bearing tree. Brides would attach the flowers as a headpiece to the bridal veil or add sprigs to their bouquets. Over the years the link between orange blossom and weddings became so firmly entrenched that to say "to gather orange blossom" meant to "seek a wife".
