Hello Friends.

Thanks for tuning in to Twelve Minute Health Bits. This is your host, Christen Hull. Our goal is to daily stay “Above the Wellness Line.” In this podcast I will be giving you tips and tricks on how to daily make small changes to your life in order to keep your body well. 

Episode 09 - All Things Fresh with a Citrus Fresh Blend

Citrus fresh essential oil comes in the Young Living starter kit. Grab this oil and give it a big smell, put 5-6 drops in your diffuser, add water to the fill line, and get that diffuser running by pressing the power button. This will wake you up, get you alert, and make your room smell incredibly fresh without synthetic chemicals. If you do not have a blend like this, then pick an individual citrus oil you do have and put that in your diffuser

Diffuse to Freshen your Air

Young Living essential oils are NOT little plugins that you put in your room to make it smell pretty. They are so much more. Citrus fresh is an oil blend that comes in the Young Living starter kit because of the amazing benefits this little oil can do, such as, clean, uplift your mood, and make your house an oasis for anyone who walks in.

Citrus essential oils are incredibly beneficial for everyone internally and aromatically (to breathe in). Please check out my fourth podcast called, For the Love of Lemon to find out more information about why lemon essential oil is so incredibly important in your daily life. If you need a little more kick than just lemon, citrus fresh would be your go-to.

Here are some Fabulous uses for this little Oil Blend:

  • Remove sharpie marker from just about any surface.

  • Clean windows with an 8-ounce spray bottle, 1 tablespoon of vinegar, 15 drops citrus fresh, and ½ capful of Thieves Household Cleaner.

  • Make a hand and foot scrub with 1 cup of epsom salts, 30 drops of citrus fresh, and almond oil to cover the epsom salts.

  • Diffuse when you are trying to work and be productive to help provide focus and on task behavior. Do you know any kids who could benefit from this?

  • Add to your favorite moisturizer for skin that looks fantastic, has blended tones, and keeps you looking youthful.

  • Studies have shown that citrus oils can help turn a down day into a positive one.

  • Diffusingcan kill nastiness in the air and clean up the space you live and breathe in.

  • Adding to water can help the lymphatic system, liver, provide glutathione, support detoxification, and make water much more refreshing! Make sure the oil blend is labeled for consumption. Young Living vitality oils are safe for consumption.

  • This oil, along with the Cel-Lite Magic Massage Oil, goes great on a mom’s tummy after having a baby. Add 30 drops of citrus fresh in the bottle of Cel-Lite Magic Massage Oil and rub on the mom’s tummy twice a day. The benefits may include disappearing stretch marks and lines, and diminishing cellulite bumps.

Powerhouse Blend

There are so many more ways to use citrus fresh! Citrus fresh is made up of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, mandarin, and spearmint. Each one of these oils individually are amazing, but together they are a powerhouse for your health. Please look up in your desk reference guide all the benefits of each individual oil. Citrus Fresh can also help you get rid of any synthetic chemicals you might have lurking in your home causing harm to your body. 

Fabric Softeners

Speaking of synthetic chemicals, have you gotten rid of your fabric softeners yet? Fabric softeners are incredibly toxic, may contain formaldehyde, and  be hormone disruptors that can be detrimental to your health in the long run (Trimmer, 2018).Instead of using a fabric softener try wool dryer balls in your dryer. Let the clothes go through almost the entire cycle, and then when the dryer is in it’s last 5-10 minutes put about 5-10 drops of citrus fresh  on the dryer balls and run the dryer till the end of its cycle Your laundry will smell better than you imagined without any chemical residue that will off-gas on your clothes while you wear them.

Stinky Shoes

Before I go I am going to leave you with 0ne more little tip for your citrus fresh oil. Those stinky shoes your family leave in the entryway can easily be refreshed with a citrus fresh by putting a couple drops on a cotton ball and putting the cotton in the shoe. Diffusing the oil in your entryway would help also.


Seriously friends, using essential oils is easy, fun, and is so much better for your health than any wax warmer, wax candle, plug in, aerosol room spray, or other toxic, synthetic chemical that will weaken your immune system and disrupt your hormones.

Hopefully you are enjoying the aromatic benefits of smelling your citrus fresh in your diffuser right now. Friends, we have a duty to take care of our bodies. We cannot leave it up to anyone else. That is why it is so important to do our own research, eat nutritious foods, take supplements, use pure therapeutic grade essential oils, exercise properly, and pray. Philippians 4:7 says, “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” You can really truly rest in God’s peace if you take care of your body properly, knowing that He has blessed us with these amazing gifts in plants to support our health. The positive affirmation for this week is, “I am strong in the Lord’s strength and might.” Be strong to take care of your body, my friends and stay well.
