Lemon essential oil is uplifting and invigorating.

How to Blend These Oils

Make your own roller ball blend. Add 4 drops Patchouli, 4 drops Orange, 4 drops Sandalwood, and 1 drop Lemon to a 10-ml roller bottle and top with your favorite carrier oil such as Young Living’s V-6. Take caution applying this blend, due to the citrus oils, on the skin where the sun will come in contact. Citrus oils can cause photosensitivity. Apply a good 12-18 hours before going into the sun or apply it under clothing. I like to apply this to my wrists, back of neck or bottom of feet. These are my favorite roller ball bottles and they have a stainless steel ball from amazon. (ad).

This blend is also terrific for your favorite diffuser. I have 3 of the 4 that come in the premium starter kit.
