Essential Oils – Month of April

In their book Daily Aromatherapy, Transforming the Seasons of Your Life with Essential Oils, Joni Keim and Ruah Bull discuss the month of April:

‘April is the second Spring month — a time to open your heart to the joy of being alive. It is the time to embrace optimism and hope for the present and the future. The essential oils for this month are Orange for joy, Mandarin for optimism, Petitgrain for harmonious relationships, and Bergamot for hope.’ (p. 27)

Orange – Joy. Uplifts. Eases minor depression. (p. 27)

Mandarin – Optimism. Relieves anxiety, tension, and stress. (p. 32)

Petitgrain – Harmonious relationships. Eases anger. Promotes mental clarity. (p. 37)

Bergamot – Hope. Brings in positive energy — light into dark times. (p. 42)
