Using Lemon and Tangerine Essential Oils

Do you love that delicious smell of a fresh cut lemon or tangerine? Do you ever walk through the grocery store fruit aisles and you can smell nothing but sweet, citrus aromas? Citrus aromas are some of my favorite smells, and not only do they smell good, but they are chock full of health benefits for our bodies. And just think, when you are using your dōTERRA citrus essential oils, whether diffusing or mixing in blends for cleaning in your home, or for personal body care, you are getting much more bang for your buck, with the potency of that lemon and tangerine oil.

Did you know that there are around 45 lemons used to make one 15ml bottle of Lemon Essential Oil, and just as many for a bottle of tangerine, or lime or wild orange? So imagine the potency of the one drop of oil, from one of these bottles of citrus goodness? And with their bright, fresh, citrus and clean aroma, you can see how citrus oils could be a favorite to many.

Lemon oil, along with Tangerine oil and many other citrus oils, are often used to cleanse and purify the air and any hard surfaces. The citrus oils are great oils for using as a counter cleanser and disinfectant in bathrooms and the kitchen. These citrus oils are also perfect in a diffuser blend when you are looking to cleanse the air, to promote a positive mood and an uplifting and energizing feeling, and to assist in support of a healthy respiratory function. When taken internally, like a drop or 2 in a glass of water, citrus oils such as lemon and tangerine, have been shown to provide a refreshing and healthy boost in your energy, throughout the day, and these oils help to support a healthy immune system because of their powerful antioxidants.
