I have been in a citrus mood lately!
Citrus scents are cheerful and fresh. Perhaps that is why I used to LOVE Clinique Happy when I was in my twenties. No need to resort to synthetic fragrances when there are so many healthier options!
Let's take a look of my favorites:
3 Girls Holistic has a citrus vanilla fragrance blend that I absolutely adore! First of all, it is in a very generously-sized roll on bottle. Do not laugh, but the fragrance I am enjoying so much is from their 3 Little Girls line and it is called Citrus Parfait Perfume. It is 100% natural in a grape seed oil base and the fragrance components are vanilla absolute, sweet orange and tangerine essential oils, and bergamot oil. It is fresh, fun, and smells a bit like a creamsicle.
$13 (1 ounce)
100% Pure Blood Orange Body Wash is also all-natural and lathers up all nice and sudsy without harmful sulfates. It smells SO good and it wakes me up in my morning shower.
$17 (for 17 ounces)
Who says you cannot find budget friendly NATURAL shampoo? This one is lovely. It is NOW Foods Citrus Moisture Shampoo. And it is only 6 bucks for a 16 ounce bottle. No sulfates or parabens and it smells lovely! With ingredients such as strengthening biotin and reparative niacin, your hair will also be treated as it is cleansed.
$6.11 (16 ounces)
You know I am devoted to the Fragrance Free Hand Cream, but as my love of citrus scents is returning, this one is a must-have in my collection. It is (seed) Healthy Hand Cream in Invigorating Citrus. This 100% natural, gluten-free, vegan hand cream contains shea butter, grape seed oil, aloe vera, sunflower seed oil, jojoba oil, and essential oils of tangering, grapefruit, and lime.
$8 (3.5 ounces)
Antho Beauty Purists has a fantabulously (I know, not a word!) cheerful body cream called Citrus Grove Organic Body Butter. This organic butter contains Fair Trade Raw Shea Butter, non-GMO vitamin E, lemongrass, bergamot, orange, and more.
$15.95 (4 ounces)
It is nearly impossible to find a natural deodorant that works all day long. They all seem to eventually stop working after a few months. I am using Weleda Natural Citrus Deodorant right now. Be forewarned--if you have freshly shaved armpits, this will sting like the dickens.
However, I don't need to shave under there much anymore since I've been using the Silk'n Flash & Go Home IPL Hair Removal System (like a laser). This is a spray. The fragrance comes from natural essential oils and it really does work--even when you are working out. No aluminum, no parabens-- and no B.O.!
