Citrus oils are my favorite, as they are uplifting and energizing and help me to choose joy and spark creativity. doTERRA has a variety of citrus oils, including Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon, Lime, Tangerine, and Wild Orange. All citrus oils come from the rind of the fruit. Citrus essential oils are also all produced using cold expression (also known as cold-pressing).
We use them topically, internally, and aromatically. Diffusing citrus oils in your home is like opening a bottle of happiness.
To be able to enjoy these citrus oils topically through the bright sunshiny months, I apply where the sun doesn’t shine since you want to be sure and avoid direct exposure to sunlight for 12 hours.
The most notable similarity between these six citrus essential oils is their ability to affect the emotions. Most of these oils, including Grapefruit, Lemon, Lime, Tangerine, and Wild Orange can help uplift your mood or your energy levels. On the other hand, Bergamot is calming and soothing to the emotions. The best way to use citrus oils for mood or emotional balance is to use them topically on the back of your neck or the bottom of your feet, or aromatically in a diffuser. Lemon, Lime, and Wild Orange also are excellent at purifying the air as they are diffused.
