The sweet orange blossom scent has since been used extensively in the perfume and cosmetics industry. Known in some cultures as a symbol of good fortune, Neroli is a traditional wedding flower. It is said to have antidepressant, antiseptic, digestive and tonic qualities. It has been used by natural health practitioners to treat anxiety, fear and shock.
