Skincare and Anti-aging...Neroli is a prized ingredient in anti-aging and skincare. It is highly emollient, thus encouraging skin to attain and maintain the correct moisture balance. The result is smooth, glowing skin that is free from infections. Neroli Essential Oil is highly cicatrisant, and is known as one of the most effective medicines on earth for increasing the skin's elasticity and causing wrinkles, stretch marks, and scars left by acne, boils and pox to fade away. It is used by aromatherapists to promote the generation of new cells and stimulates the health of those already present. This makes the skin grow stronger, healthier and encourages the reduction of lines and wrinkles. Neroli is bactericidal, which means it can kill harmful bacteria and keep the skin free from microbial infections. This makes it useful for helping with bacterial skin conditions and rashes of all kinds.
Neat: Place a drop or two directly onto clean and intact skin. A couple drops on the wrists, shoulders, temples or neck imparts a beautiful aroma and is an effective remedy for stress and nervous depression. Note: May be too concentrated to be used undiluted on facial skin.
Blended with Carrier: Use 15 drops per 1 TBL of carrier oil such as argan, rose hip, raspberry seed or hazelnut oils, and massage over any area where you would like for healing to occur.
Bath: Place 8 drops into 3 handfuls of bath salt and disperse, or add 8 drops to vodka or whole milk
Diffusor: Follow diffusor manufacturers instructions, but typically add about 8 drops.
Room Deodorizer: Add 15 drops per 2oz distilled water and spray as desired.
Ritual for Inviting Radiance and Joy:

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.
