There’s nothing like waking up to the scent of citrus oils…they are so energizing, fresh, and perky, you just can’t help but smile when you inhale their burst of sunshine. I have so many favorite essential oils, but I really couldn’t live without my citrus oils, they truly are my sunshine in a bottle!
