There’s nothing quite like the first sign of spring poking through after a dark and chilly winter. Fresh greens and new blossoms have a way of lightening our spirits and making us feel good about all the new opportunities life is going to throw our way! So to bottle that sense of delight, our Certified Aromatherapists beautifully blended together some of the most gorgeous, juicy, springtime scents and called it, of course, Delight. Because really, is it anything less than a delight to experience?
Let’s get to know what makes up this lovely blend a little better, shall we?
Bergamot: Widely known for its wonderfully vibrant, citrusy, and floral aroma, Bergamot helps to uplift the mind and ease your worries, especially during times of sadness and grief. Plant Therapy’s Bergamot is Bergaptine-Free, which means it is safe for use in the sun.
Orange Essence: With its intense, fresh citrus aroma, Orange Essence uplifts and energizes, while also easing worry and tension. As a co-product of the production of orange juice, Orange Essence differs from Orange Sweet due to its strong effervescent, fruity top note and additional aldehydes (approximately 0.5%). The chemical makeup is otherwise nearly identical to Orange Sweet and offers the same uplifting benefits.
Kumquat: Known to brighten the senses, boost household cleaning products, and support a healthy immune system, Kumquat is high in Limonene, which gives the oil its fresh, citrusy aroma and uplifting abilities. This scent is very energizing and can help give you the boost you need to get going!
Steam Distilled Lime: Unlike Cold Pressed Lime Oil, Steam Distilled Lime is not phototoxic. It has a beautifully clean, bright citrus scent that can help clear and energize the mind. This oil can also help support a healthy immune system!
Rose Absolute: Highly prized for its rich floral scent, Rose Absolute is known for its calming properties, helping to soothe emotions and bring calm in the midst of fresh grief. It can also promote relaxation before sleep and add a gorgeous floral note to any blend.
Delight’s cheerful and uplifting scent is a wonderful way to bring springtime inside your home! Diffuse this KidSafe blend during the day to encourage a joyful and peaceful atmosphere. You can also add it to your personal aromatherapy necklace or personal inhaler to keep the sweet, citrus scent with you all day long. To enjoy it in a lotion or carrier oil, just dilute to 2-4% and apply topically.
Delight was formulated with spring in mind! It is reminiscent of a freshly blooming springtime garden. With calming Bergamot, vibrant Orange, energizing Kumquat, fresh Lime, and soft Rose, this blend evokes positive feelings of acceptance and love.
