Top Five Essential Oils: Citrus Oils

Ok, so Citrus Oils is more than just one oil- but for today let’s go with a category of oils!

And those would be Citrus Oils! Some of my favorite citrus oils are pictured below, but there are so many other ones!


One of my favorite ways to use Citrus Oils is to add a couple of drops into my water. Before ingesting oils, make sure 1) they are high quality oils (I only suggest Young Living Essential Oils), 2) You are using a glass cup or water bottle, citrus oils can eat through plastic and 3) Look at the labels on your Young Living Oils. If they can be consumed they will be labeled as dietary.

Here are some of my favorite water combinations:

– Grapefruit, with fresh mint leaves and some fruit
– Orange with fresh basil leaves (sounds weird, but it’s good! The basil leaves give the water a little zing)
– Here are some great recipes for “Spa Water” In the place of the fruit you can add in your oil! So for Grapefruit Basil Water add the basil and 1-2 drops of grapefruit to your glass!

I love using Lemon oil in place of lemon juice in recipes. Since the lemon oil very concentrated, i only need 1 or 2 drops of lemon oil!
