Orange Mood Enhancer- Using Essential Oils-
Some days we all need a boost. Think bright, happy oranges, soaking up the sunlight. When I feel down I reach for my d.i.y. Orange Mood Enhancer. You may already use essential oils in your life. Everyone is familiar with the lovely fresh scent of flowers and fruits. Did you know that these smells can also change your mood and support your immune system? Orange oil has been used medicinally for centuries. Orange Mood Enhancer is a super easy, economical, d.i.y. essential oil spray.
My lovely orange spray can both make you happy and enhance your health. Orange oil helps to calming the mind when one has anxiety, and can work as an anti-microbial in the air. This is a handy effect if you work with lots of people, such as in entertainment or in retail. Another benefit is it repels unwanted critters- such as bacteria, bugs or unwanted animals in the garden.
How to use Orange Mood Enhancer
For focused, relaxed work and rest time, spray on furniture where you will be sitting, and in study, or working areas. Orange Mood Enhancer can be spritzed on fences and along garden boarders to repel unwanted critters. It also works as bug repellent against mosquitoes, termites, ants and flies.
If you are using it as an insecticide use caution when spraying your body. It is better to spray around doorways, on screens, and on your clothes then directly on skin as it can be an irritant.
Qualities of Orange Mood Enhancer:
- Lifts depression
- Calms anxiety
- Eliminates odours
- Repels animals from the yard
- Repels insects
