2Citrus Essential Oils

 Lemon, lime, grapefruit and other citrus oils are packed with antidepressant and antianxiety effects plus they smell amazing. But they can cause phytophotodermatitis. This means that they can cause skin irritation and other reactions when they are left on your skin when you’re out in the sun. If you use these oils, be sure to remove them when you plan to be out in the sun for a long time, as they react in the sunlight and may cause blisters, redness and even permanent scarring. Be sure to use distilled oils as they carry much less risk.
