Our newest addition from Australia is the sweet essential oil of Nerolina. Botanically related to Niaouli (Melaleuca quinquenervia ct cineole), Nerolina is drastically different in both aroma and constituents. Nerolina is high in nerolidol and linalool, yet much lower in 1-8,cineole. The high linalool and nerolidol gives Nerolina a sweet lavender-ish Neroli type aroma that is completely the opposite of camphoreous Niaouli.
Nerolina offers aromatic benefits, as well as a few unique abilities not often found in other botanical extracts. One, it can lift up top notes in natural perfumes for a sparkling, effervescent fragrance effect. Two, Nerolina can be used as a dermal penetration enhancer, which will assist the skin’s uptake of therapeutic applications — such as cosmeceutical uses and topical drug delivery systems. Nerolina is considered a gentle oil used for sensitive skin, which makes it ideal to use in any skincare formulation. The 47.98% content of nerolidol (also found in Neroli and Jasmine oils) accounts for Nerolina's floral notes as well as 35.65% linalool (found also in Lavender) for its sweetness. Lastly, Nerolina is a calming essential oil that is noted to therapeutically assist with adrenal fatigue and instances of stress.
