doTERRA Citrus Bliss

Ingredients: Wild Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Bergamot, Tangerine, Clementine, Vanilla Bean Absolute.

·  Phototoxicity is the biggest issue here. This would be AWESOME for diffusing, but I would dilute heavily before applying to the skin. How much dilution is hard to say as we don’t know the % of EOs in this blend.

Note: I would like to point out that although the consultant tools website does indicate to avoid for “up to 12 hours” on their product information page link on this page their main website where a consumer would purchase only shows how to use it and includes “For aromatic or topical, use.”

In reality, sun should be avoided for up to 48 hours after applying leave-on phototoxic EOs (in wash-off products it is fine).
