Essential Oils: May 2015

Citrus, Citrus, Citrus! I'm sitting there looking at my books last night and I forgot how many citrus oils there are and how much I love them.
Lemon was historically used to fight food poisoning, malaria and typhoid epidemics The French use lemon oil as air disinfectant, asthma, cold and fever, gout, heartburn, varicose veins, water purification, and even red or white blood cell formation. I enjoy honey with lemon oil with I have a cough or sore throat. 
Lime may be useful for anxiety, blood pressure, dissolving cellulite, mental clarity, energy, gallstones, strengthening nails, sore throats, cleaning kids dirty skin, water and air purification, and promoting a sense of well being. It works well removing gum, wood stain, oil, and grease spots. It can also be used in guacamole and margaritas! Yummy!!
Grapefruit works as an anti-depressant, antiseptic, disinfectant, diuretic, stimulant and tonic. Aromatically is can help one from sinking into their negativity. It works to balance and uplift the mind and may help relieve anxiety. I'm currently taking 15 drops in a capsule once a day for a petro-chemical weight loss program.
Tangerine affects emotional balance, the immune system, and skin. It can be used to help dissolve cellulite, increase circulation, calm dizziness, ease insomnia, relieve tired and achy limbs, liver problems, and alleviate water retention. The list just keeps going with soothing emotions of grief, anger, and shock. I love tangerine in my water or diffusing it with rosemary for a zesty fresh scent.
Orange can be used to help appetite, complexion, lowering cholesterol, and water retention. It's aroma brings peace and happiness to the mind and body and joy to the heart, which overall provides emotional support to help one when they're feeling mentally down. I enjoy diffusing orange for a little pick me up.
Citrus Fresh is a blend that consists of orange, tangerine, mandarin, grapefruit, lemon and spearmint. This blend may help to enhance the feeling of well being in kids, and because many of the oils contained in this blend are antiseptics it may work well for killing airborne bacteria. This oil combined with Ledum is the second part of the petro-chemical weight loss program.
