Neroli is one of the most widely used floral oils in perfumery. Neroli’s exquisite scent isn’t immediately apparent in the undiluted oil (when smelled in the bottle, it can be quite unappealing), but when added to a carrier oil or other base, the true aroma appears. Neroli essential oil is extracted from the flowers of the Seville (bitter) orange tree by either steam distillation or the consuming and labour-intensive method known as enfleurage. This is unusual expensive oil, mainly because it takes a ton of orange blossoms to produce a signals pound of oil.
For therapeutic purposes, substituting for neroli with equal parts mandarin and petitgrain will give you almost the same effect, but if making a top-quality perfume, there is no substitute.

Neroli is an excellent skincare oil. It has a reputation for regenerating skin cells and maintaining or restoring elasticity, particularly in dry, mature, prematurely aged, irritated and sensitive skin. It helps to prevent wrinkles, remove scars and stretch marks. Neroli oil increases circulation and stimulates new cell growth. It is useful in treating skin conditions linked to emotions or stress, as it calms the emotions as well as the skin. It regulates oiliness and minimizes enlarged pores. Neroli oil helps to clear acne and blemished skin, especially if the skin lacks moisture. With regular application, it can reduce the appearance of fragile or broken capillaries and varicose veins.
The scent is a sweet, full-bodied citrus aroma with a slightly spicy, slightly bitter undertone. It is calming and relaxing to the body and spirit. It may also help to strengthen and stabilize the emotions and bring relief to seemingly hopeless situations

Is Neroli from the orange blossom? I started buying some Neroli soap from a little mall type store . I fell in love with the smell. That one bar of soap was huge and kept the bathroom smelling wonderful for months till I couldnt resist using it anymore. They stopped making it and I was a little upset, but then I found out there was Neroli oil. So I got that for my laundry soap I make myself. Wondered what the base for the oil was.
Yes, Neroli is orange blossom, produced from the blossom of the bitter orange tree.
