Sweet Orange oil is one of my favorite oils to use in the winter time. It is very clarifying & uplifting to my overall mood. Living in the Bay Area means being subjected to rainy days and foggy mornings. If you are sensitive to cold and lack of sunshine, this oil helps clear the mental cobwebs gently and slowly, which I appreciate. I often use it in the morning when I am more prone to heavy thinking and a bit sluggish. It immediately brightens my overall outlook without taking me away from what's present.
On top of bringing harmony and energy up, essential oils in the Citrus family hav been proven in countless experiments to help disperse anxiety, tension and assist with attention management. Sweet Orange is in my top 5 travel oils that I use by either mist or topical application. Diluted of course!
