Tangerine, Spearmint, and Lime...Oh My!
These three oils are so much fun to have on hand!!! (See that diffuser in the picture? That is the LUMO diffuser, and it's my new favorite.)
Did you know that you can use all three of these oils in cooking! I love to put a drop of tangerine or lime into my water (ONLY glass or stainless steel bottles or glasses, please...Thankyouverymuch).
And, adding a drop of Spearmint to your lemonade will give you a minty Pick-me-up and cool you down.
Perfect for a summer day.
**Diffuse all three together for a clean, fresh, and uplifting scent!!!**
So, why ELSE are these oils great???
Spearmint: Spearmint is widely used in gums, candies, and dental products for its minty taste, and to promote fresh breath. Spearmint has been used throughout history for its digestive benefits*. Its sweet flavor and aroma are both cleansing and uplifting, making it ideal to help with focus and evoking a positive mood. Spearmint is milder than Peppermint, making it a more widely used option in homes with young children and those with sensitive skin. In cooking, Spearmint is often used in salads, drinks, and desserts, and it can also be used in homemade salad dressings.

Lime: doTERRA Lime essential oil is refreshing and energizing in both aroma and taste. Limes are frequently used in entrées and beverages for their fresh, citrus flavor. Due to its high limonene content, Lime provides internal cleansing benefits* and can be diffused to help purify the air. It’s also an effective and natural surface cleaner.
