Use The Scent Of Citrus To Brighten & Energize Your Day

When I first learned of the benefits of citrus oils, I was a bit astonished.  I read in a book that a drop of orange oil in a bath could produce spontaneous joy.  That caught me interest.

I noticed when I peel oranges and grapefruit and cut lemons, the air felt somehow more dazzling.

Citrust aromatherapy is the most brightening, cheer-inducing and freshening of all the oils I have seen.

The simplest way to “harvest” the oil is to get some organic citrus and start peeling! Twist the peels to explode the oils out of the rind, spraying the air with “fresh” aromatherapy.  You can literally twist peels in the corners of your room for a boost of happiness.  You can try a grapefruit to help alleviate a headache.  You can also pile your peels into a water pitcher and let it steep all day to enjoy a next-level elixir.

Citrus is potent, so just a bit can be your insta-freshening bliss cure.  Off I go to peel some clementines and get excited…!
