10 Benefits Of Citrus Essential Oils

Do you use citrus essential oils daily? If you aren’t, you should be, and in this article, I’ll go over ten advantages of using citrus essential oils.

1. Naturally Uplifting (Increases Serotonin Levels)

Consider yourself sitting on the beach, sipping a fancy drink, listening to the ocean, with sand beneath your toes and the warm sun on your face. Citrus plants thrive in the warm and tropical environments you’re picturing right now, and it’s from those citrus plants that we get citrus essential oils. Citrus oils can naturally improve our mood by increasing the serotonin levels in our brains. When citrus essential oils are used aromatically, they stimulate serotonin, which naturally leads to feelings of happiness and an improved mood.

2. Energizing and Enlivening

Citrus essential oils can energize you as they can improve your mood. Citrus essential oils stimulate the brain, promoting happiness and an uplifting, motivating feeling. For example, when I’m feeling down in the afternoon, I like to drop each of Orange Essential Oil and Peppermint in my hands, rub them together, cup them over my nose and mouth, and take deep breaths. This is like coffee; it wakes me up and gives me more energy.

3. Relieves Nervousness

Citrus oils are used in many emotional therapy blends. However, because they have a beautiful effect of calming anxious feelings, some essential oils will work better for you than others. The best way to determine which citrus oils will be most beneficial to you is to open the lids of your citrus oils and start smelling them. Some will pique your interest more than others. To begin diffusing a citrus oil blend, use the diffuser recipes below, or start by combining some of your favorite oils in your diffuser and deciding what you like.

4. Toxic-Free Cleaning

Citrus essential oils can be used to make DIY cleaning products. When you think about it, the same oils that make you feel better and give you energy can also be used to clean your countertops.

The citrus essential oil will provide the most traditional clean aroma, but don’t be afraid to experiment with other citrus essential oils in your household cleaners. Different essential oils such as Tea Tree, Lemon, Peppermint, or Rosemary can be added to enhance the cleaning benefits, but make sure to include some citrus essential oils as well.

5. Gets Rid of Sticky Substances (Labels, Stickers, Gum, Sharpie, Crayons)

Citrus essential oils remove labels, stickers, and other sticky residues from glass surfaces. Picking labels off glass jars can be difficult at times, but citrus oils, in my experience, make it much easier. Before using citrus oil to remove stickers from wood surfaces, perform a spot test. Citrus essential oils can also remove Sharpie Markers or Crayons from surfaces. Citrus oils can be used to remove gum from hair, which is possibly my favorite parenting hack. Simply apply the citrus oil directly to the gum to start unsticking it from the hair.

Another hack is to clean produce naturally with a mixture of water, white vinegar, and citrus oils.

6. Cleans and Detoxes The Body Gently

Citrus essential oils can naturally wake up the body’s cleansing systems and help eliminate toxins. Qualis Nutri works hard to ensure that our suggestions and research are the best they can be. We are working with medical clinics worldwide to advance research on essential oils in the medical field.

High amounts of limonene are found in citrus oils, and QN Orange Essential Oil, Grapefruit, and Tangerine all have 95% limonene or more. The body makes more glutathione when limonene is present. Glutathione helps maintain homeostasis in the body, which is one of its many benefits.

The latest research on taking citrus essential oils internally has shown that they clean the mucus membranes, improve digestion, boost receptor sites in the cell, and do a lot more. 

Check the website for each bottle of Qualis Nutri Essential Oils for more information to find out if the oil is safe to take by mouth.

7. Have A Lot Of Antioxidants

Antioxidants protect our cells and keep us from getting older faster than we should. Citrus essential oils are full of antioxidants, a great way to get more antioxidants into your body. You can take essential oils or put them on your skin to get the benefits of antioxidants.

8. Helps Keep Your Immune System Healthy

If you look at the ingredients in some recipes for blends that boost the immune system, you’ll see that most of them include Orange Essential Oil. This is because essential oils from citrus fruits help keep the immune system healthy.

Lemon – 10 drops 

Grapefruit – 10 drops 

Bergamot – 10 drops

Tea Tree – 10 drops

Directions: Put essential oils in your roller bottle, then fill it with a carrier oil. Put the roller top on the bottle and snap it into place.

9. Helps Keep Your Respiratory System In Good Shape

Essential oils from citrus fruits help to clean the air and get rid of pathogens that are in the air. Citrus oils also help keep our respiratory systems healthy by breaking up the gunk that can build up in our chests when we’re sick. To help with this, my favorite way to use a diffuser is to mix the essential oils, Orange Essential Oil, and Lime Essential Oil.

10. A Natural Way To Freshen The Air

Most people like the smell of citrus because it makes them think of cleanness. You don’t have to use dangerous aerosols or candles to make your home, car, or office smell clean and fresh. 

As I’ve said many times before, essential oils have many uses. They can make your home smell good and help your health.
