Citrus Essential Oil Blend - 15 ml FAQ
What blends well with citrus essential oils?
Thanks to their bright, uplifting, and sweet aromas, oils in the citrus family are a wonderful addition to any DIY essential oil blend. These essential oils can complement many other scents and help bring out more complex, subtle aromas. Our favorite oils to pair with citrus include Lavender, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Rosemary, Cinnamon Bark, and Eucalyptus.
Does citrus essential oil have Vitamin C?
Because citrus essential oils are created from peels, they contain lower levels of Vitamin C than citrus fruits or juices. However, Vitamin C and other antioxidants are still present in citrus oil. Additionally, research suggests that citrus oils like Lemon may help improve your body’s ability to absorb Vitamin C and other nutrients from food. If you’re looking to boost your immune system with Vitamin C, add citrus oils to your daily routine!
Will citrus oils stain my diffuser?
Occasionally, citrus essential oils may cause stains or minor discoloration in diffusers. To avoid this, empty and clean your diffuser after each use. Use white vinegar on a cotton swap or clean cloth to wipe away any residual citrus oils.
Do citrus essential oils lighten your hair?
Yes. Citrus oils, especially Lemon essential oil, are known to lighten hair when exposed to the sun. The natural acid in citrus oils opens hair follicles, which then release their color when heated by the sun’s rays. Although you won’t be able to achieve a platinum-blonde bleached look with citrus oils, you can use them for sun-kissed, natural highlights. Simply apply citrus oil to the hair and allow your head to be exposed to the sun for 30-60 minutes.
(Note: Be mindful to avoid the sun if using citrus oils on skin, as it may increase your risk of sunburn.)
