Neroli/ Naiouli

I was looking on the site for essential oils and see Neroli talked about on the 'serious terps' page recipies (Tea tree, Cardemom, Naroli) , but when I got to purchase it, the only thing I see is Naiouli, so I got some. Are these the same thing?

I looked briefly online and saw a statement saying they are very different, but no other information.

Thanks!

Not the same thing at all, but...

Neroli is crazy expensive. Expensive to the point that you won't see many places carry it, and to the point that I wouldn't consider using it in my paste. Kinda like Jasmine... could be a heck of a terp, but I'd never know because at $500 an ounce I can find much better things to do with it than to toss it into my henna!

Niaouli is a great terp though. The scent is kind of like cajeput but with a mellower, sort of nutty scent. It does great work for paste.

Okay, yeah, I'll stick with Naiouli!  Was looking for something to make a darker stain...for now the best I've found was the mix of cajeput & cardemom and then adding lavendar mostly for scent.

I'm just testing out some new Raj with different oils so we'll see. If you have any better suggestions for a darker stain, I'll take em!

Thanks for the info!

 Caj is my goto work horse, I always use it, at least a bit. Sometimes I cut with lavender, which is also a good terp! Not just for scent! Tea tree is a good one, but I hate the smell. Geranium too.

I love Naiouli, smells like the middle of lemon lockets (UK cough / throat sweet). Smells great mixed with Lavender or geranium. It is a great terp, a bit fresher smelling than Tea tree, IMO.
