Get Up & Go Essential Oil Blend Lemon Lime Lemongrass to Uplift, Inspire, and Motivate your Mood


Lemon, lime, and lemongrass essential oils can help to restore a zest for life by uplifting a low mood. Each of these essential oils can be used to clear mental fog helping you to focus more clearly and pursue the day with purpose. When using this in the diffuser it’s as if a ray of sunshine is spread in the room encouraging a positive outlook.

I like to play with mixing different essential oils in the diffuser and first discovered this blend because I wanted to use one of my favorite oils, lemongrass, and thought it would be nice to add an equal amount of lemon and lime for their cleansing scent. I used to be a big-time lover of anything with the perfume fragrance lime; I would stock up on sale days from the bath supplies store in the mall. Over time, I developed a sensitivity towards these perfumes, and even though I couldn’t use it I still held on to my last bottle of lime body spray – just in case I would spontaneously be able to tolerate it again.

While this bottle sat unused under my bathroom sink, I discovered the beautiful essential oils of doTERRA. It felt freeing to use them as I had perfumes before because I didn’t have sensitivity issues with the essential oils. I felt comfortable using them throughout my home and with hygiene to finally smell pretty! As crunchy as I can be by foregoing unsafe detergents and chemical based cleansers, I still want things to smell pretty. With essential oils, now everything in my home doesn’t have to smell like vinegar after I’ve cleaned it, and I certainly don’t have to go scent free anymore! I can finally pick and choose a scent to compliment my mood for the day. On days that I want to feel upbeat and sunny, I pick citrus essential oils. A blend that I come back to over and over is equal parts of lemon, lime, and lemongrass.

Some of my friends know that I can be the very definition of frugal. Even I get on my own nerves with how cost conscious I can be, which makes it even more delightful that these three bottles combined cost $33 with my doTERRA membership. This is far less than I would spend in the mall store and these essential oils can be used for a large variety of purposes making more bang for my buck. It is very easy to have your own doTERRA membership that will automatically save you 25% off retail price with every purchase. Just follow this link to sign-up and start using essential oils.

The diffuser is how I first discovered the mental benefits of this blend and is my top favorite way to use this essential oils blend. Using the Petal water diffuser (pictured above) fill with water to red line, add:

  • 4 drops of each lemon, lime, and lemongrass essential oils



Citrus oils are beneficial for liver health and can be used topically over the abdomen. I mainly use this blend during cooler temperatures like fall and winter, almost never during spring or summer to avoid accidental sun exposure. Never use citrus oils topically on skin that will be exposed to sun light. 

Using a 5mL roller bottle, add:

  • 2 drops of each lemon, lime, and lemongrass essential oil
  • Finish filling bottle with avocado oil as carrier

How to Use:

Pet Safety:

  • When using these essential oils around pets, use caution and do so at your own choice. The safety of essential oils with pets has not been studied well. I have a dog who I use essentials around and with, she has never shown an adverse reaction to any of the essential oils.
  • Homes with cats should omit lemongrass if the cat will be in direct contact with the oil when using these recipes.
  • All oils in this blend are generally regarded as safe for dogs.
  • All oils in this blend are generally regarded as safe for birds, though shouldn’t be used in close proximity to them.
