Frequently Asked Questions about Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Blend
How do you properly store Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Blend?
To store your essential oils, make sure they are in a dark colored bottle. Citrus Fresh comes in a dark amber bottle, so you don't need to worry about changing the bottle.
Keep your oils in a cool, dry place. We keep ours in a linen closet in our hallway.
For more info, check out our post: How To Care For and Store Essential Oils
Can you ingest Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Blend?
Yes. Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Blend contains essential oils that are deemed safe for internal use. HOWEVER, make sure you're being safe in how you decide to ingest.
DO NOT just add essential oil to water and drink. That is NOT a safe method of ingesting. Using the oil as a flavoring agent diluted in honey or cooking oil is ideal. Check out our Can You Ingest Essential Oils Safely post for more information.
What are your favorite Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Perfumes?
I personally love using it by itself. Sometimes I'll add a drop of peppermint to a few drops of Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Blend. Sometimes adding a drop of lavender is lovely. Sometimes we combine it with Abundance Essential Oil Blend or Thieves Essential Oil Blend for a fun change.
I usually wear these mixes in a diffusing necklace.
Can you diffuse Citrus Fresh Vitality?
Yes, you may.
What is the difference between Citrus Fresh and Citrus Fresh Vitality?
There is no difference between Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Blend and Citrus Fresh Vitality Essential Oil Blend. They are the exact same oil, placed in bottles with different labels.
Why? Because of FDA requirements for labeling supplements. The FDA does recognizes essential oils as a supplement and states that you cannot legally label a supplement for topical use AND oral use. So Young Living created a second label line, called Vitality, to differentiate between oils to use on your skin and in your diffuser and oils that you may use in culinary dishes, recipes, and drinks.
