Cheer up the wintertime lull with citrus oils

With the holidays behind you (and decorations neatly tucked away with fond memories), mid-winter is the perfect time to refresh and re-energize your environment — and your spirits. Here's how the clean, uplifting scents of citrus oils can help brighten your winter.

Tips to lighten your mood with citrus essential oils:

Sweet Orange Oil• Sprinkle 5 to 7 drops of sweet orange on shower floor in the morning.
• Use grapefruit and peppermint in a car diffuser.
• Keep a bottle of tangerine on your desk and inhale whenever you need to be uplifted.
• Diffuse a combination of lime, eucalyptus and tea tree to purify the air.
• Add lemon to household cleaning products.
• Use mandarin orange as a fresh, sexy personal essence.
• Diffuse bergamot and rosemary to inspire creativity.

ESSENTIAL OIL OF THE MONTH

GRAPEFRUIT

Grapefruit Essential OilEverybody appreciates the distinctive tangy, fresh aroma of grapefruit essential oil. Extracted from the fresh rind, the aroma is identical to what you get when you peel a fresh grapefruit. The aroma cheers and enlivens the spirit and tonifies and cleanses the skin. (Try it with pure water in a mist to tighten saggy skin and reduce puffiness.) In massage, grapefruit encourages circulation and the flow of vital energy throughout the body.

Grapefruit Lavender Sugar Scrub
This is a great wintertime treatment to remove dry dull skin and rejuvenate skin tone. Try it once weekly during the dry winter season.

24 drops lavender oil
24 drops grapefruit oil
¾ cup avocado oil
1 cup fine grain natural sugar

Mix essential oils with avocado oil, pour over sugar and stir. Apply to damp skin after using a gentle cleanser. Buff gently. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Grapefruit Tea Tree Foot Bath
Turn any down time in front of the TV or reading a book into a rejuvenating spa experience with this easy foot bath. A great purifying treatment, this will revitalize the whole body while softening calloused heals and toes. Follow up with a foot scrub.

1/3 cup sea salt
12 drops grapefruit oil
6 drops tea tree oil
basin of very warm water

Sprinkle sea salt with oils and mix. Dissolve into basin of water and soak feet for 15 to 20 minutes.
