Neroli (Orange Blossom) essential oil is one of the most expensive of all oils, which makes its hydrosol an affordable alternative. Neroli hydrosol is an antibacterial and anti-fungal astringent that makes a wonderful treatment for sensitive, delicate, or oily skin to reduce irritation and clear acne. It is such a good astringent that one should avoid use directly on very dry skin, or use it in combination with lavender, rose, or geranium. Use it after exercising to cool down and relax, close pores without clogging them, relieve sweaty skin, and prevent breakouts or athlete's foot. There are anecdotal reports that neroli has been effective in reducing thread veins. Neroliâ€s calming properties make it an important anti-stress agent. It is the hydrolat of choice to quell hysterics in children, babies, and adults. It can be used to relieve the effects of a sudden shock. Parents find it helpful to moderate hyperactivity in children with ADHD. Use on a dampened cloth to wipe the face of babies and toddlers in the throes of a tantrum. Spray an inflamed baby bottom for almost instant relief of diaper rash pain. This hydrosol is mildly sedative to the central nervous system without causing sleepiness, and can quiet caffeine jitters.
