Neroli Absolute oil is a versatile oil which has many potential aromatherapy benefits.
It's good to blend in a base cream or lotion thanks to its capability in stimulating cell growth which can help to regenerate and rejuvenate the skin. It can help to fight stretch marks and broken capillaries and can also help to prevent scarring.
When blended in a carrier oil for massage it is again a good skin booster and may also be useful for indigestion, diarrhea, insomnia, headaches and nervous tension. You can also add a few drops to a hot bath for similar results.
