Let’s talk self-care – we all know we need it but how often do we put this idea into practice? By incorporating self-care practices into your daily routine, like going for a walk or chatting with a friend, you can reduce the impact of stress. And we have one self-care gem you may not have considered before, Neroli essential oil. Keep reading to find out 8 Neroli self-care tips you’ve got to try!

Now, if you can’t get your hands on Neroli, keep in mind these self-care tips can be applied to a number of essential oils. We’d highly recommend Frankincense, Awaken, and Grounding to name a few!

Neroli oil comes from the bitter orange tree, Citrus Aurantium Amara. The oil is steam-distilled from the delicate orange blossoms, which need to be handled with great care to avoid crushing the petals.

From skincare to self-care, Neroli has your back. Check out these tips for how Neroli can be a secret weapon on a difficult day.

Peppermint Essential Oil

1. Be present

Mix 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and 1 drop of Neroli essential oil in your palm. Rub it on your chest or on your favourite pressure points. Neroli’s grounding aroma can help you feel more centered and aware.

2. Feel fresh

Slightly wet a cotton pad and add 2 drops of Neroli essential oil. Apply to your face morning and night after cleansing for a dreamy glow.

3. Chillout

Wet a cloth with cold water; wring it out so it is damp but not dripping. Add 2 drops each of Neroli, Marjoram, and Peppermint to the middle of the cloth. Apply the cold compress to the back of your neck or forehead for comfort.

4. Love your skin

Give yourself a steam facial at home! Heat 4 cups of water, pour into a bowl and add 3 drops each of Neroli and Geranium essential oils. Put your face over the bowl and drape a towel over your head and the bowl. Stay there for 5-10 minutes while the steam opens your pores.

5. Self-soothe

Take a moment for yourself—open a bottle of Neroli, and then inhale the complex aroma undiluted, straight from the bottle.

6. Treat your toes

Fill a basin with hot water, 1 teaspoon of V-6™ carrier oil, and 1 drop each of Neroli and Tea Tree essential oils. Soak your feet, sit back, and enjoy your at-home spa day!

7. Tame those tangles

Mix ½ cup of conditioner, 2 cups of warm water, 4 drops of Rosemary essential oil, 3 drops of Cedarwood essential oil, and 3 drops of Neroli essential oil in a spray bottle. Spray a little bit on damp hair to help get rid of tangles.

8. Brighten your space

Surround yourself with the bright scent of an orange grove. Neroli and Petitgrain bring the earthy smell of orange trees, while Orange and Tangerine add the sweetness of orange fruit to this blend.
