4. Citrus Essential Oils
Using citrus essential oils can cause you to have sensitivity to sunlight. These are the essential oils that you should not use on your homemade body scrub that you are going to use for summer skin care. It is best to use any of the citrus oils on your body scrub when you are likely to have less exposure to sunlight, like in the fall and winter months. Citrus oils are commonly used because of the fresh and light aroma it gives. Citrus essential oils include sweet orange, bitter orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit, mandarin, bergamot, petitgrain, tangerine and neroli.
