Fresh, invigorating, cleansing. These are all words to describe citrus smells. doTERRA has created two citrus blends that smell wonderful and have some wonderful benefits.
Citrus Bliss Benefits
This is a wonderful blend of Wild Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Bergamot, Red Mandarin, Green Mandarin, Lime, with touches of Litsea, Tonka Bean, and Vanilla Absolutes.

Citrus Bloom contains Wild Orange, Grapefruit, Lavender, Roman Chamomile, and Magnolia essential oils. Citrus Bloom is one of the calming scents that can promote feelings of focus.
