Who can think of summer without thinking about a nice, refreshing glass of lemonade? In fact, pretty much any citrus fruit is a refreshing way to beat summer heat. What might surprise you is that there are far more many ways that citrus can be a part of your summer. Citrus essential oils from Young Living Essential Oils have a wide variety of uses that are sure to make this your best summer ever.
While most essential oils on the market today have not been approved for dietary uses, Young Living’s Vitality™ line of essential oils has been, and there is quite a lineup of citrus choices and unlimited ways to incorporate them into recipes for dishes and drinks. Citrus Fresh™ Vitality™ is a great option when you want a little bit of everything. It is a blend of lemon, orange, mandarin, tangerine, and spearmint essential oils. It makes a great addition to your water or sangria. It can also be used in marinades for chicken and fish, as well as add a unique, zesty flavor to your homemade salad dressings. Not only does it taste great, but you also gain the cleansing and antioxidant benefits. Other citrus options include grapefruit, jade lemon, lemon, lime, orange, and tangerine.
You are not limited to using citrus essential oils just in the kitchen. Add a few drops to raw sugar or sea salt for a fragrant DIY exfoliator. Make up two jars: one for yourself and the other as a thoughtful present. There are so many other DIY skin care products you can make using citrus oils, as well. The uplifting scent of citrus essential oils makes them ideal for diffusing in your home, too. For example, diffused grapefruit is associated with joyful feelings and a bit of playfulness.
As is the case with using any essential oil, it is important to learn about the proper use of citrus oils. In the case of citrus essential oils, they can cause photosensitivity, so take care not to apply to exposed skin when you will be outdoors.
