Citrus Oils tend to be refreshing, uplifting and energising oils. They are often used to lift the spirits, or even revive exhausted bodies or minds. Citrus oils, on their own or in a blend, are great 'room' oils to create an uplifting environment or even make a bathroom feel fresh (as a scent, or used in cleaning products). Most are also great for assisting with focus and concentration, making them pleasant oils to burn at work or in the home office. Most of the oils included in our Citrus Lovers Pack blend beautifully together, meaning that you can create your own signature blend, or experiment with different variations.
CLEANING: When used in CHEMICAL-FREE CLEANING (Click for more info) citrus oils make excellent anti-viral oils for disinfecting - Lemon and Orange are two of the most commonly used oils in natural cleaning, with beautiful clean, fresh scents. They are also natural stain removers, great for breaking up grease or sticky residue when added to your cleaning products (try using a few drops of Lemon oil on a tissue or cloth to remove stickers or glue from glass; take care using on plastic etc as Lemon can be a solvent). Lemon is also known as a spider & insect repellent. Citrus oils are also the perfect choice for deodorising, or adding a fresh clean scent to your cleaning which the whole family will love.
*For application to skin, do be aware that many Citrus oils cause photosensitisation, or sensitivity to UV light, and should not be applied to skin before exposure to the sun. Photosensitising oils include: Angelica, Bergamot (unless 'Bergaptene Free'), Cumin, Lemon, Lime (unless 'Distilled' rather than 'Cold Pressed'), Orange & Verbena - so do take this into account before applying any of those oils to the skin. As always, no essential oil should be applied directly to the skin unless diluted in a carrier oil or base cream first.
4 x Oils included in the CITRUS LOVERS pack:
* Lime Distilled (Citrus aurantifolia) - Mexico. Distilled Lime oil is steam distilled from the whole ripe fruit of the Citrus aurantifolia tree. Distilled Lime differs from Cold Pressed Lime in that it is NOT phototoxic and so is suitable for use in skincare (phototoxic oils should be avoided before exposure to sun or UV light). Distilled Lime also has a sweeter, fresh fragrance, reminiscent of lime beverages. The scent of lime is refreshing and uplifting, ideal for fatigue or a tired mind. Lime is also a known digestive stimulant, disinfectant and detoxifier. In skincare Lime Oil is astringent and toning and can assist clearing oily, congested skin.
* Lemon (Citrus limonium) - Italy, cold pressed. Lemon Essential Oil has a familiar fresh, sharp citrusy aroma; it is produced from cold pressing the rind of the fruit. The scent is refreshing and widely used to assist concentration, lift the spirits and aid decision making. Lemon oil is highly prized as an antiseptic, and counteracts acidity in the body so is useful in treating conditions such as gout, arthritis and cellulite. In skincare, Lemon oil is astringent and can be used in cleansers for oily skin. It is non-toxic, though may cause dermal irritation in some sensitive skins. Is also phototoxic so avoid using on skin before exposure to sun. Lemon oil is also a valuable oil for use in cleaning products.
* Mandarin (Citrus madurensis) - Australia. Mandarin oil is a yellowish-orange coloured oil cold pressed from the peel of the fruit. It has an intense, sweet citrus scent that has an uplifting quality, often used to eliminate depression and anxiety. It has similar properties to Tangerine and Orange - tonic, stomachic and a mild sedative for the nervous system, and may be helpful in treating insomnia. It has long been used for babies suffering from colic or hiccups. Also useful for calming the intestines and relieving flatulence.
* Orange Sweet (Citrus sinensis) - Australia. Sweet Orange Essential Oil is cold pressed from the fresh ripe outer peel, and has a zesty, refreshing citrus fragrance. It is known as a 'cheerful' oil that conveys warmth, happiness and joy, assisting to relax and unwind. Children love the smell of orange, and it can be used to help them sleep. Recommended for the treatment of constipation or swollen tissue. Beneficial and soothing to dry, irritated or acne prone skin, and also very helpful in natural cleaning products.
