The unique aroma of doTERRA Touch® Neroli can be described as sweet, floral, citrusy, and fresh. That’s because it comes from the blossoms of a plant similar to the trees which yield Wild Orange essential oil! This precious petal essential oil is known for being soothing to the skin and for its beautiful, uplifting fragrance. Because doTERRA Touch Neroli is diluted in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil, it is primarily meant to be used topically or aromatically.

Neroli gets its name from a 17th century princess named Marie Anne de La Trémoille of Nerola, Italy. She is said to have loved the fragrance of the bitter orange flower and famously used it to perfume her gloves and baths. When she introduced the trend to her homeland, it was called ‘Neroli’ in her honor.
Neroli essential oil is derived from the flowers of the bitter orange tree; in fact, there are three oils derived from this same tree—Orange is derived from the orange peels, Petitgrain from the leaves and twigs, and Neroli from the delicate white flowers. As with most floral oils, timing is important when working with the blossoms. Orange blossoms will quickly lose their oil after they’ve been picked, so they must be steam distilled as soon as possible to produce the highest quality and quantity of oil.
Because Neroli comes from the blossom of the citrus plant, it is not a photosensitive oil! It is fine to wear topically when outdoors.
For an essential oil perfume or topical application, the aroma of Neroli pairs well with the following essential oils: Bergamot oil, Cedarwood oil, Frankincense oil, Geranium oil, Lavender oil, Magnolia oil, Wild Orange oil, and Ylang Ylang oil.
