Are you a regular essential oil user? If so, you know there are many different scents and even more blends you can use. When the springtime arrives, why not switch out the winter ones for some that are better for this season? This includes a variety of floral, citrus, and fresh oil scents.
If you have used essential oils for any length of time, no matter the time of year, you probably have used lavender. This is one of the most well-known and popular essential oils and for good reason.
It comes from the lavender plant, which is beautiful, fragrant, and provides a lot of excellent health benefits.
Lavender essential oil can help with relaxing and reducing stress, reducing anxiety and depression, and helping with headaches and other types of chronic pain. It also happens to be an amazing floral oil for the springtime.
Spring is the perfect time for fruity and citrus scents, which is why lemon is a recommended essential oil for this time of year. Lemon is going to provide that citrus, fresh scent you want for things like turning on your diffuser in the evening, or making your own DIY skincare or home cleaning products.
It also has some health benefits of its own, including improving your mood, reducing respiratory issues, and simply making you feel better during the day. This is a happy, bright, fresh scent to use for many different purposes.
Tea Tree Oil
This may not seem like a spring scent, but it is absolutely perfect. If you have never tried tea tree oil, you are in for a real treat. It is wonderful for your skin, so if you are making DIY products for your skin or scalp, adding some tea tree oil and a carrier oil is really going to help with softening and reducing irritation.
It is great in the spring because it has a fresh scent, but also because it helps with those springtime allergies that tend to run rampant.
It doesn’t sound like it, but bergamot is actually a citrus scent. This comes from the bergamot plant, which looks very similar to an orange plant. Its scent is also similar to oranges and other similar citrus fruits. You can use bergamot oil with other citrus or fruity scents, or make your very own blend with it. It is also sweet enough to use on its own.
