Spring has officially arrived! With warm balmy weather and beautiful flowers in bloom, spring is the perfect time to refresh your home, revitalize your health and uplift your energy.
We love using essential oils during spring to help combat hay fever, support a healthy immune system, and boost our mood and energy levels. If you’re ready to enjoy this vibrant season, keep reading as we share the best essential oils for spring below!
Spring is a beautiful time of year, but it can also cause havoc for hay fever and allergy sufferers. Lavender oil may help to reduce your hay fever and allergy symptoms, thanks to its ability to calm and soothe inflammation. Try diffusing lavender oil throughout your home, or breathing it in directly from the bottle when your allergy symptoms strike!
The fresh, citrus scent of lemon oil is the perfect uplifting fragrance for spring. This powerful oil can boost your mood, improve focus and concentration, increase circulation and revitalise your body. Lemon oil is also thought to have detoxifying properties, so try adding a drop to your morning glass of water.
If the winter months have left you with dry, dehydrated skin, consider incorporating some geranium oil into your skincare routine! This beautiful floral oil is thought to nourish and brighten your skin, and can even assist with reducing acne. Try adding 1-2 drops of geranium oil to your daily moisturizer.
Tea tree oil
Ready to give your home a good spring clean? Tea tree oil is perfect for household cleaning, thanks to its antibacterial and antiviral properties. You can make a powerful deep cleaning scrub by mixing one cup of baking soda, ¼ cup of liquid soap, and 10 drops of Tea Tree oil.
Sweet orange oil
Sweet orange oil is another fragrance we adore for the spring season! This fresh, zesty oil is a natural mood booster with anti-depressive properties. Diffuse this uplifting oil first thing in the morning to start the day on a positive note!
