In the wintertime, in the snow country, citrus fruit was so rare, and if you got one, it was better than ambrosia.

Is there any other scent that reminds you of sunshine more than the scent of citrus? It certainly brightens the atmosphere in the room and is most welcome in February in Indiana when the days are snowy and cold and sometimes dreary.
Young Living Essential Oils has a blend called Citrus Fresh and is one I love to have in my diffuser at this time of year. The oil is a blend of orange, tangerine, mandarin, grapefruit lemon and spearmint.
much year round now and are considered to be one of the healthiest foods around. The vitamins they contain are essential to your body as structural materials for healing and health.
The blend of the oils in Citrus Fresh come together to create uplifting freshness in your home when the scent is diffused.
When you are performing difficult tasks, consider diffusing it to increase your focus and alertness. It also helps cover odors that may be lingering in your home in this time when it is too cold to have your windows open.
Another use that I like is to put a drop in my drinking water. For me, drinking water is easier when it is ice cold and has a bit of flavoring. One drop is enough to create a citrus-y, minty freshness in my glass of water.
For a really refreshing change of pace for the children (and adults too!), make Citrus Fresh popsicles with water and a few drops of the oil. It tastes great and has no sugar or artificial coloring. You can also make ice cubes with it.
Citrus fruits have long been associated with well-being and I hope you consider adding Citrus Fresh Essential Oil to your home for well-being too. If you don't have this essential oil, use a small saucepan and simmer orange slices or other citrus over very low heat to fill you home with a wonderful scent.
I'm so glad you stopped by today. Tomorrow, I'll investigate different ways to prepare for a winter time power outage, specifically methods to use for backup lighting. A winter night will seem very long if you don't have some way to provide light. I hope to see you then.
Peace be with you,
