Neroli is the name of the essential oil distilled from the orange flowers. It is associated with purity, maybe because of the white colour of the flowers. Certainly the smell of Neroli as the smell of the fresh flowers is a heavenly perfume that brings to the mind a peace of heaven.
It brings peace to the heart and a joyful calmness. The Aroma of Neroli is comforting and heals emotive wounds. it brings us to the angelic realm and into contact with our better self. You can spray the Neroli over yourself when you want to purify your intention, and in the air in order to purify the place in which meditation or healing will take place.
The Neroli is associated to the Eighth Chakra, and facilitates any spiritual engagement. Some assert that it reinforces the creativity, especially in the cases of music and literature. (P. Davis)
The aphrodisiac reputation that has the oil of Neroli is not conflicting with this as it may seem at first. The traditional custom to crown the head of the spouses with orange flowers had the twofold scope to symbolise the virginity and to lighten the possible worry of the young spouse about the first night.
