Citrus Essential Oils Collection
Our Citrus Essential Oil Collection contains six different citrus essential oils, 5ml each: Pink Grapefruit, Lemon, Key Lime, Mandarin, Blood Orange and Tangerine. The difference in the aromas of these varieties of citrus oils can be subtle yet distinctive. Each of the six oils is 5ml with the kit being value priced providing a significant savings over buying each oil individually in their regular sizes (15ml to 4oz).
Please see below for a brief description of each essential oil plus links (under “Common Name”) to their individual pages if you’d like to read more or purchase individually in our offerings of 15ml – 4oz sizes.
Like all of our Artisan Aromatics essential oils, enfleurage oils, absolutes and blends, this oil has been carefully selected for its therapeutic quality. Then, to ensure maximum freshness and potency, it is bottled by hand in USA only after orders are received.

Note that most expressed citrus oils are phototoxic, which means that they can cause severe sunburn if applied to the skin prior to exposure to ultraviolet light; therefore, they should not be used on the skin (even if properly diluted) or in applications where steam may deposit it on the skin for 12 hours prior to exposure to sunlight or tanning lamps.
Essential oils should be applied to the skin undiluted
