There is even a touch of Rose Otto for emotional support. A couple drops added to carrier oil for abdominal massage is the ideal use for this blend.
Sunflower Citrus The name says it all: this synergy is bursting with energetic and sparkling citrus! We figured out a way to bottle sunshine, and now you can diffuse it or make it into a post-workout gym or yoga bag (or mat) spray.
Lemon, Grapefruit and Lime are detoxifying, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, so you could add 10 drops of Sunflower Citrus to a ½ cup of salt and soak your feet after an especially long hike or run. Cinnamon Leaf adds an extra boost of germ fighting, so this blend could also be helpful in a toilet scrub, countertop spray or as a grease-remover.
There are whispers of Cinnamon Leaf and Ylang Ylang to sweeten the deal and add some balance and depth to this blend. All you Ylang Ylang naysayers do not fear: the minute percentage of this essential oil just makes this blend smell like candy.
CONTRAINDICATIONS / SAFETY : Do not use on skin before exposure to sunlight, as citrus oils are phototoxic, and a burn might occur. Citrus oils are also potentially irritating (sensitizing) to the skin so ensure proper dilution if adding to a lotion or oil base.
Uplift For all those tiresome, anxious-filled times when your spirit needs some help along the way; inhale, massage or place a few drops of this blend in the bath to uplift your sagging soul. The bright citruses and grounding woods will put a bounce in your step, a smile on your face and give you the courage and confidence you need to carry on.
