We love all essential oils, because each oil is unique and has its own distinct and beneficial properties for mind, body and spirit.However, there is a specific group of oils we tend to turn to when we’re feeling blue and in need of cheering up, because citrus essential oils lift our spirits and put the spring back in our step.
The most popular citrus oils are orange, lemon, grapefruit, mandarin, bergamot and lime. All of My Pure Earth’s citrus oils are cold-pressed from the rind of the fruit. Just one whiff and your senses will be transported to hot summer days spent soaking up the rays and dipping your toes in sparkling, clear waters.

They will lift your spirit and give you a boost
Remember the last time you peeled an orange and how the fresh aroma instantly lifted your spirits? The same probably happens when you get a sniff of lemon or grapefruit doesn’t it? Well that’s no surprise since citrus essential oils have incredibly powerful properties that stimulate the senses and invigorate the body and mind to invoke feelings of positivity, happiness, and hope.
This is the number one reason we love citrus oils; they help to turn your day into a brighter and happier one! These oils work on the brain’s chemicals and hormones to not only improve your mood, but to also provide emotional balance. Even if you’re feeling a bit anxious and irritable, these oils have been known to reduce these feelings when diffused.
They kill germs and naturally disinfect your home
If you’re looking for a natural way to clean your home, than look no further! When added to your DIY cleaning products, they add an amazing scent, work well with soaps to lift dirt and have strong antibacterial qualities. Plus, you won’t need those chemical filled air fresheners anymore. Citrus oils don’t just cover up indoor odours, they clarify the air when diffused with the kind of pure scent that can only be derived from nature. We love a combination of lemon, lime and orange, but you can create your own air cleansing citrus oil blend as they all smell amazing together.
Improves the immune system
Keeping your immune system in working order is vital if you don’t want to get sick. When you use essential oils as part of your preventative measures (in addition to, for example; a healthy diet and exercise) to help keep your immune system healthy, then your body will naturally be able to defend itself better. Diffuse any combination of citrus oils to enjoy this boost.
