Spring is in the air! Memories of the cold are finally starting to slip away and are being replaced by afternoons in the warm sunshine and an abundance of beautiful flowers all around. Spring is a time of renewed energy, it's the perfect time to revitalise and energize, leaving winter behind and embracing the fresh new season.

Citrus oils in particular are very refreshing and uplifting, with lots of benefits for the mind, body and household. Here are some of our favourite essential oils to detox, energize and cleanse this Spring.

Lemon: light and refreshing, lemon essential oil has detoxifying and energizing properties. It is great for increasing circulation, getting energy moving and revitalizing and uplifting mind and body. Lemon is also stimulating and great for mental alertness, it clears the mind and aids in decision making.

Grapefruit:this fresh, sweet and citrus scent is highly uplifting to the mood. It has balancing, clearing and detoxifying properties, helping to clear the mind of negative emotions. Grapefruit is also very detoxifying to the digestive system, helping to get things moving and releasing trapped fluid, the perfect kick your body might need after Winter! 

Peppermint: with a sharp, refreshing menthol scent, peppermint is stimulating, energizing and awakening. The strong and sharp scent helps to cut through negativity and mental clutter and reduces lethargy and tiredness. Peppermint refreshes the spirit, stimulates mental agility and improves concentration, bringing you into the present moment and giving you a boost of energy.

Lime: with a fresh, citrus scent, lime is very stimulating and great for refreshing a tired mind.
