Both lemon and sweet orange oils are affordable essential oils thought to lower depression and anxiety. They can also help with insomnia. While bitter orange essential oil will probably irritate skin, irritation is less likely with sweet orange oil. Test a watered down droplet on the inside of your wrist if you have concerns. Lemon oil has the added bonus of treating acne.
