Citrus Oils: Why Use Them Internally

Citrus Oils: Why Use Them Internally

If you’ve been following along with Symphony of the Cells™ and Boyd Truman, you’ve heard citrus oils mentioned once or a hundred times. So, why do they matter? Why should you use doTERRA pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils in your daily routine? Pure citrus oils, including everything from Lemon, Lime, Wild Orange, Grapefruit, to Tangerine and Bergamot, come from the rind of the fruit. This means they are not acidic, and instead, help balance pH, and act as powerful antioxidants.
