The tiniest member of the citrus family, Kumquats may be small in size but are definitely big on flavour and personality! Yes, they may look like miniature oranges but unlike other citrus fruits, it is the skinny peel that is sweet and edible. The juicy flesh itself is on the tart side and can only be described as wincingly sour.
Kumquat essential oil contains up to 94% Limonene which gives it a distinct citrusy aroma. This refreshing scent makes it a great addition to DIY air fresheners and household cleaning products!
Feel like you could use a pep talk? Diffuse or add to your personal inhaler to help boost your mood, stimulate your mind, get a new perspective on things, and invigorate your senses!

Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
