Years ago, when I first started using essential oils, florals were not my favorite. I usually opted for something spicy or refreshing, but left the florals aside — they didn’t come off as appealing at that time. However, over the last year, I’ve changed my tune. After finding a few oil blends — such as the Joy and White Angelica blends from Young Living — that I’ve absolutely fallen in love with, I’m ready to give florals another chance. The funny thing is, I felt the positive effects of using Joy and lemon oil together in the mornings that I truly began to ADORE the flowery scents! Our bodies really know what’s best for us — we just have to listen!

Since it’s feeling summery outside and I’m in the mood for flowers, let’s talk about geranium essential oil! Keep reading to learn about a few of the ways you can use this lovely oil!
