Citrus oils are so fantastic! Just smelling the aroma opens your mind and awakens your spirit, and it just so happens it is great for mood elevation and can also help alleviate stress.
This oil is really great if you have small children. If they are having one of their ‘meltdowns’, you can use one drop to soothe them and I have found that it really helps (especially when you are in the middle of the grocery store!).
So many studies have been done on the different reactions people have to different smells by measuring vital signs and mental stimulation. When people were exposed to citrus oils, the participants showed immediate signs of eased anxious feelings and stress and had more relaxing readings.
Some other incredible benefits of citrus oils include improved digestion and reduced nausea. It is also great to add citrus oils to your cleaning materials or make your own cleaning materials with citrus oils. Citrus oils have a disinfecting quality and help your home smell great.
When you are trying to lift your mood or just brighten your mind and day, use citrus oil directly on your skin, diffused into the air, or put them into a relaxing bath.
