Citrus Essential Oil Set
Citrus oils promote bright sunny energy and help lift the spirits when diffused. They are our top choice for a clean healthy home. Citruses all have high amounts of d-limonene, making them natural airborne deodorizers, immune system supporters, and natural degreasers for cleaning use. Because of citrus oil's small molecule size and structure, they can be added to blends to help the blend absorb into the skin faster (helpful for pain blends), however they also have a short shelf life. Use within 2 years and store away from heat.
Contents: Five 15 ml bottles, one each: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon, Sweet Orange, and Lime.
Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) oil is cold pressed from the citrus peel and has a sharp peppery citrus aroma. It is the aroma most prominent in earl grey tea. Like many citruses, it is uplifting to the mood. It stands apart from other citruses due to the linalol and linalyl acetate content. This gives it the additional property of being calming, especially for issues of anxiety, overthinking, and sleep difficulties.
Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi) oil helps to deodorize and add positive energy to any room. Grapefruit can also help reduce fluids when applied topically to swollen areas of the skin and helps with acne and oily skin issues due to the astringency properties.
Lemon (Citrus limon) essential oil has an authentic tart and fresh aroma. It is a natural airborne deodorizer when diffused and can support the immune system when inhaled regularly. Topically, it is a naturally astringent to the skin and may be helpful in areas of swelling or water retention. Lemon in laundry can help whiten and brighten without the use of chemicals. It is also a natural degreaser, making it ideal in homemade cleaning products.
Lime (Citrus aurantifolia) oil is astringent, making it useful for oily skin types. It is also emotionally uplifting and a natural airborne deodorizer. Our Lime oil is steam distilled, therefore it is not phototoxic.
Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis)oil is a great choice for digestive issues such as gas, bloating, nausea, vomiting and constipation when applied topically and rubbed in a counter clockwise direction. It is especially effective with ginger or cardamom. Many of our regular customers have praised this oil for its fresh aroma. Sweet Orange is also emotionally uplifting when applied to any diffuser blend.
