Have these cold winter months been draining on you as much as they have on me? I long to see the sunshine and warmth that it brings, but these long winter months seem to only bring cold weather and (where I live), a lot of fog. Everyone is getting sick with something or another and I am seriously done with it all. Time to bring back summer! Cue in Wild Orange Essential Oil.
This little guy has changed my sad attitude over the past few weeks. I created a smoothie which I call my “Wild Orange Smoothie” every morning and it is like drinking a cup of sunshine and happiness.
This smoothie has yogurt, milk, oranges, vanilla and a couple drops of the Wild Orange Essential Oil. It tastes like a creamsicle…so good! I love the way this smoothie tastes, but even more I love the health benefits that I get. It is the best way to start my morning. Here’s why:
The Wild Orange Essential oil is
Very effective against fighting colds and the flu, and is highly recommended for use during their early stages.
Great for your digestive system. It supports the elimination of toxins from the body, while stimulating the lymphatic system.
It is both energizing and uplifting yet it also gives feelings of peace.
It relieves stress and is a natural anti-depressant.
What are you waiting for? Time to get rid of the winter blues and make up this wild orange smoothie for yourself. It has been a great way to start my morning and a way that I can see the sunshine even in this winter weather.
