Let’s face it…all days may be created equal, but it sure doesn’t feel like that sometimes! 😉 If there is one thing I’ve learned though, it is all about perspective and attitude! With a little focus and keeping the right perspective, regardless of what comes my way, it can really make a difference in the outcome of my day.
I’m also thankful to have found some awesome oils to help support a happy mood throughout the day. Did you know why essential oils are so effective in boosting healthy emotions? Nope, it’s not just all in our heads – there is science behind it!
Each of us has an olfactory system which is the sensory system that used for our sense of smell. Have you ever experienced a smell that instantly brings you back to a moment in time from your past or evokes a specific emotion? That is because our sense of smell is directly connected to the limbic system of the brain which is responsible for emotional responses. Pretty neat huh?
One of the topics that friends as me about most often is how to use Essential Oils for an emotional boost, so I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my favorites that I use daily for mood support!
Joy: Joy is included in the Young Living Premium Starter kit, so it is one of the first oils that I tried. To be honest the first couple of times I opened it I didn’t really care for the smell, but I know that just because something doesn’t smell to my liking that doesn’t mean that I don’t need it! So, I put it on the bottom of my feet – one drop on each any time that I needed an emotional boost. Joy is still not an oil that I diffuse often (although many do), but I have warmed up to it some – now I wear a drop over my heart each morning and afternoon!
Orange: Orange essential oil is good for so many different purposes! It has a rich, fruity scent that lifts the spirit while providing a calming influence on the body. I love diffusing it in the spring and summer in it’s own and in the fall and winter I mix it with Cinnamon Bark oil – it’s divine! 🙂
Harmony: Harmony is an oil blend that promotes physical and emotional well-being by bringing harmonic balance to the body. The balancing and calming essential oils in this blend contribute to an overall feeling of well-being.
I love diffusing Harmony…especially on stressful days!
Highest Potential: Highest Potential is my go-to blend when I need to focus and be productive. I love diffusing it and also wearing it in my diffuser necklace!
Highest Potential is an exotic blend designed to increase your capacity to achieve your highest potential. It combines the uplifting and inspirational qualities of Australian Blue with the power of Gathering to help bring greater unity of purpose. Jasmine is added to enhance self-confidence, while ylang ylang calms, soothes, and harmonizes.
Tangerine: Mmmmmmm Tangerine!! I really love this oil! It’s quite inexpensive (as with all of the citrus oils) and I absolutely love diffusing it in the summer time!
Tangerine is a calming essential oil with a sweet, tangy aroma, similar to orange. It helps with occasional nervous irritability and is great for helping to uplift the spirit and bring about a sense of security. Tangerine is also rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene and can be used to enhance the flavor of food.
Hope: Last but not least, there is Hope! We can all use a little extra hope in our lives, right?! 😉 Hope is usually what I wear in my diffuser bracelet and I also wear it on my wrists most days.
Hope helps to reconnect with feelings of strength and grounding, restoring hope for tomorrow and making you more open to the joys that lie ahead.
So there you have it – those are a few of my very favorite “Happy Day” oils! I’d love to hear what your favorites are in the comments below!
