Citrus Essential Oils

**You will want to use caution with citrus essential oils as they have been widely considered a photosensitive oil meaning you should use extreme care with the sun using this oil. Dilute with a carrier oil such as jojoba or coconut oil before applying to skin and either avoid the sun or use sunscreen and reapply often.

Fresh Flower Blend

  • 3 drops lavender
  • 3 drops lemon
  • 3 drops geranium

Tangerine Essential Oil

Zesty and sweet tangerine is part of the citrus family. The essential oil is derived from cold-pressing the rind of the fruit. As with most citrus essential oils, tangerine has numerous benefits but is also considered a photosensitive oil meaning you should use extreme care with the sun using this oil. Dilute with a carrier oil such as jojoba or coconut oil before applying to skin.

Benefits of using tangerine essential oil:

  • Relieves muscle spasms
  • Eases anxiety, depression, and other mild mood disorders
  • Promotes healthy sleep
  • Fights cellulite when applied topically
  • Speeds up metabolism when taken internally

Bergamot Essential Oil

Another fabulous essential oil to include in your aromatherapy diffuser is bergamot. This citrus scent has a lovely floral under scent to it. Those who enjoy Earl Grey tea will be very familiar with this scent as bergamot is used to flavor that tea.

Aside from its lovely scent, bergamot may help with:

  • Easing anxiety and depression
  • Calming skin disorders such as acne and oily skin
  • Lowering blood sugar levels
  • Eliminating odors
  • Killing germs
  • Soothing muscle spasms

Lemon Essential Oil

With its tangy scent, lemon is a wonderful scent associated with the warming weather. When used in aromatherapy, lemon has been shown to improve mood and anxiety.

Among its other benefits, lemon essential oil:

  • Eases anxiety and depression

  • Do not drip directly into ears
  • Discuss essential oils with your doctor if you:
    • are pregnant
    • have epilepsy, seizures or asthma
    • have a skin condition

    I love this post! I think it’d be really cool if you made a post on how to use these. I’m super interested in oils that help with my skin, that helps me relax or be energized. I know though that generally oils directly on the skin could be too irritating.

  • Bushra's Lifestyle

    I LOVE my grapefuit essential oil – I put a few drops on my diffuser bracelet. Do you use a car diffuser? I’ve been searching for one and can’t find one that seems to have fantastic reviews!
