Citrus Oil Uses


Who's ready for Spring?
I think most of are.
It's like getting ready for a race and waiting for the gun to shoot!
At least for me :)
Nothing celebrates Spring better than fresh citrus scents.

Have you ever walked into a room when someone is pealing an orange and detected the familiar orange aroma wafting through the air? What you are smelling is the natural essential oil that is housed within the rind of the orange. It is the rinds of citrus fruits that gives them their highly aromatic and familiar aroma.
 The next time that you eat an orange or a grapefruit, take a portion of the peel and squeeze it in half ensuring that the colorful side of the peel is on the outside. If the fruit is fresh and healthy, you should notice that the rind squirts a tiny quantity of an aromatic fluid. That fluid is the essential oil.
