Benefits of Citrus Essential Oils

During the summer time we love citrus scents! We diffuse citrus blends in our office. One of our favorites is Citrus Bliss and Balance. Some of the benefits of this blend include cleansing and purifying the air, promoting a sense of relaxation, easing anxious feelings, reducing stress, and uplifting mood.

Citrus oils come from the rind of different fruits. You can take them internally (as long as it is labeled for internal use), add a blend to a roller ball to use topically, or put them in your diffuser! If used topically make sure the area is not exposed to sunlight for 12 hours due to sensitivities.

The top 5 benefits of Citrus oils are:

Uplift moods: When oils are diffused they work on the chemical balance in the brain which helps to enhance your mood and better control emotions.
