Citrus Essential Oils prevent cancer and more!

    Citrus essential oils have been used for centuries for relief from colds and flu. These oils have also been used for cleansing, purification, digestion, skin complaints, disinfecting and so on.

    Citrus essential oils contain an interesting array of natural phytochemicals that have anti-cancer properties. Scientists have been studying the phytochemicals found in citrus essential oils for decades.

    At first it was thought that the anti-cancer activity of citrus essential oil was mainly due to the high levels of antioxidants they contained. Closer inspection found that it had mainly to do with one special phytochemical found in citrus known as limonene. There are now over 200 research studies on limonene discussing its anti-cancer benefits.

Limonene Content in Citrus Essential Oils

Grapefruit essential oil: 88-95% limonene
Lemon essential oil: 59-73% limonene
Lime essential oil: 50-60% limonene
Orange essential oil: 85-96% limonene
Tangerine essential oil: 85-93% limonene

Lime is helpful for apathy, anxiety, nervousness, depression, Lemon Essential Oilslistlessness and refreshes tired mind. Orange helps to balance the emotions, either relaxing or stimulating as needed. Tangerine refreshes and brings clarity of thought.

    My son carried around a bottle of lemon essential oil in his pocket when he was in junior high school. It was a great way for him to treat himself using something that he wouldn’t get in trouble for bringing to school. I’m sure other kids benefited every time he took it out to smell it.

Orange Essenital Oil    A breast cancer coach recommends: To improve breast health I recommend massaging the breasts daily using a combination of a favorite citrus essential oil with either frankincense, lavender, or sandalwood. A few drops of each mixed with a carrier oil is sufficient.*

Citrus Essential Oils are very affordable and easy to use. They are my favorites of any of the oils and have many more properties besides the ones we have talked about here. If you haven’t used essential oils yet, order a few to try. It won’t take long for you to get hooked on these amazing natural healing oils.
