Neroli itself is pure spirit, representing the purity in all things. It is always loving and peaceful. Neroli essential oil brings light into any day, but is especially useful whenever mistrust has overtaken reason, or during dark periods of deep depression.
Neroli essential oil has another purpose to bring self-recognition and relief. Out pain and sorrow is sometimes brought about because we have not seen how we might have affected our relations with the others in perception. Neroli allows the reflection that can throw light on the wounds that tie us to old patterns of relating. As truth is revealed, the self emerges into wholeness and all encompassing love, stirring the spirit in ways that can be both unexpected and liberating. Then, the spirit can really soar.

Allow one drop of neroli essential oil to fall on the middle fingertip of either hand, touch both middle fingertips together briefly, then place the middle fingers lightly at the corresponding temples so that you can feel the temporal pulse just beneath the fingertips. Practice long deep breathing for 30 seconds to 3 minutes while focusing on the rhythm of the pulse at the temples.
