Neroli Essential Oil Profile
Neroli essential oil touches the realms of the angels, and anyone who uses it is brushed with the light of angels wings. Neroli is one of the most precious essential oils, its vibration being one of the highest among them. It may be that Neroli essential oil resonates with energy form another light-time in the universe, perhaps taking its light from another sun in the vast cosmos. Wherever its subtle and luminescent quality comes from, it is omnipresent.
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.

Practice long deep breathing for 30 seconds to 3 minutes while focusing on the rhythm of the pulse at the temples.
