So essential oils can help with so many different things and health concerns, such as cough, yeast infections and allergies. But what if you just want oils to lift you up. Well do not fear. There are oils for just uplifting your mood, and making you happy. Sometimes you are just not feeling happy. Or maybe you are feeling a little bit down. Maybe you are just feeling overwhelmed with being a mom, and also working your job. Or maybe the kiddos have been behaving a little bad, and you just feel down about this. I can help because I know of uplifting essential oils that will make you feel better, and maybe change your mindset a little bit!
Lemon or Wild Orange Essential Oils
Let’s start with talking about come very simple citrus oils! These oils smell exactly like what they are named. They smell just like lemon or orange. And they are both really uplifting. They can be used in lots of ways. You can put a couple drops in the diffuser of just one of these oils or, you can get brave and put a drop of each into the diffuser together (Here is a great diffuser to try!)
You can also put your wrist or the back of the neck so you can smell the uplifting essential oil. These two oils can also be mixed with a lot of different oils to get that uplifting effect along with some sort of other effect. Such as, either one of these oils could be put with peppermint. The peppermint will wake you up while the lemon or wild orange will lift your mood. So two birds with one stone!
Grapefruit Essential Oil
Grapefruit is another uplifting essential oil. It is just such a yummy smell when you either put in the diffuser or put on your wrist. It just puts you in a better mood every time you smell it. Plus, it is great with helping with weight control. So when you smell grapefruit, you will get your mood uplifted, and you will help get your food cravings under control. How cool is that?
This is one of the things I love about essential oils, not only are there many different oils for a particular thing, such as uplifting your mood. But each essential oil has many different uses. This means you can find out for yourself which essential oil works best for you for each concern you have.
Bergamot Essential Oil
Now, I know you have all heard of lemon, wild orange and grapefruit. But have you ever heard of bergamot? This is actually also a citrus essential oil, and is eaten as a fruit in Europe. I have never seen this fruit at our grocery store. But I have used the essential oil, and it is amazing. It is a unique essential oil because of its capability to be uplifting and calming at the same time! I have no idea how this oil does that, but it does.
So if you are feeling like you need to uplift your mood but are also feeling like you need to relax. This is your go to oil. It smells great and can be put on the inside of your wrists or in the diffuser. It is the perfect oil for a mama that is worn out, but also stressed out by her kids.
Tangerine Essential Oil
If you like the smell of wild orange, but want something a little more sweet and a little more tangy. But still has that power to uplift your mood. Then tangerine is the oil you want. You can use it in the same way as wild orange and lemon. But it just has a little different smell. The aroma of the oil just automatically lifts your mood because it is so sweet smelling.
This blend is a great uplifting essential oil because it has many citrus oils all blended together. If one citrus oil is good at lifting your mood, then many of them blended together is better. It has all the oils mentioned above, lemon, wild orange, grapefruit, bergamot, and tangerine. With a little hint of vanilla to give the oil a little extra kick. Stick this blend in the diffuser. Or you can massage into your hands. This way your hands get a massage, and you can continue to be uplifting by the oil rubbed on your hands as you smell them throughout the day.
Seriously there is an oil called uplifting blend. This is a must have for anyone who needs to easily be able to pick an oil to uplift their mood. This essential oil blend does have the citrus oils lemon and wild orange. But it also has clove and cinnamon, oils that I would not think of being uplifting. But when you blend them all together you just get this great cozy, warm oil. So you feel uplifted and cozy when you use this oil. Not a bad way to feel. So when you are feeling down, uplifting blend is a perfect one to reach for.
This is the last essential oil I am going to talk about for uplifting your mood. And it is a really good one. It does have lemon and wild orange in it for citrus oils. But is also has some different essential oils like sandalwood and ylang ylang in it. This oil also has clary sage in it, which if you don’t know, balances hormones for us women. I know that when my hormones are more balanced, my mood is more uplifted. Which is why I think this essential oil was added to this blend.
These are just a few essential oils (well eight oils) that you could reach for if you need to uplift your mood. They can all be added to the diffuser, or if you do not have a diffuser. You can definitely put on the inside of your wrist or on your hands. This way you can smell the uplifting essential oils throughout the day.
