Start your day with some sunshine. After many dreary, dark, rainy days, we have decided to make the sun shine inside today. Citrus makes that happen. Lime, lemon, orange & tangerine fill our space with vibrant, uplifting vibes. Immune boosting & rich in vitamins & nutrients, citrus also affects the body by promoting clarity & increasing focus. Here's some ways we utilize citrus in our home.
Citrus diffuser blend (we prefer Doterra essential oils)
2 drops of orange
2 drops of lemon
2 drops of lime
2 drops of tangerine
Grab an ice cube tray, a bag of lemons & a bag of limes. Cut in half & squeeze juice into a bowl. Stir & fill ice cube tray. Freeze & enjoy by using as ice cubes in your drink of preference.
We utilize every part of the fruit & love creating our own seasonings.
Utilizing a grater, grate lemon & lime peels & place the zest on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Set oven to 200 degrees & bake until zest is dry. Depending on amount, this can range between 30-60 minutes. Remove from oven & use as desired. Get inspired. Lemon pepper, lime cilantro, the possibilities are limitless. We store them in little glass jars in our pantry.
Citrus has many benefits for your skin. Cleansing & removing excess oils, these little gems leave your skin bright & glowing. Add a little honey & you will have your skin hydrated & refreshed.
