25 Days of Essential Oils – Day 13
Day 13 is here with Neroli where a little goes a long way!
Neroli essential oil has an amazing scent if you like florals. There are other essential oils that smell floral, but this one to me truly smells like flowers from nature. Besides the scent, it is very uplifting, and great to use when dealing with grief and stress. You can also add neroli to your favorite hand cream for sore hands or add it to your current face cream for its skincare benefits. This oil is on the expensive side, but a little goes a long way with this essential oil.
