In the ups and downs of life, the downs are not fun. Being unhappy and having unhealthy feelings can interfere with so many things in a person’s life. These unhealthy feelings and symptoms can sometimes be difficult to escape, but essential oils can help. Essential oils have an ability to bring your body towards a state of homeostasis, and are able to effect changes to moods resulting in greater balance, happiness and positivity in your life.
I used essential oils for a while with limited results, but recently was introduced to a whole new class of essential oils. The essential oils made by doTERRA are some of the purest oils in the world. They are certified to be 100% pure with no fillers or pesticides and are grown and harvested in a way to ensure they remain as pure as possible, and I can attest that they are truly in a class of their own. I have absolutely fallen in love with these oils and use them daily for myself, my family, and my home. I have found them to be one of the most powerful ways to keep a happy home, and the beautiful thing is, they are so simple to use.
Aroma is very powerful. When an aroma comes into contact with our olfactory receptors it is more than simply a pleasant or unpleasant smell. There is a reaction at the cellular level and it affects our brain, our nervous system, and our chemistry. doTERRA oils are so pure, and their aroma is so clean and pleasant, that they very quickly and automatically solicit a positive response throughout our body.
Below are the primary oil blends recommended for managing moods.
Serenity - This relaxing blend contains essential oils that are used to calm and soothe feelings of stress, excitement, and anxiety in order to help the body maintain its natural state of health. I use this oil every night with my daughters to help them have a restful sleep. It can be applied to the bottom of the feet, back of neck and/or across forehead. You can also diffuse the oil. For myself it helps me to go into a peaceful state, and is very useful after a stressful day when you want to unwind.
Citrus Bliss – this is a happy, invigorating blend. It is a very pleasing smell and one of my favorites. You can use this one internally – just add a drop or two to your water. Diffuse for a happy home. This oil is Invigorating, Stimulating, Rejuvenating.
Elevation - the joyful oil. This wonderful blend is very cheering and creates an energetic aroma that can help stimulate the body’s chemistry when a person is feeling lethargic or sad. Perfect for someone struggling with anxiety and depression. It is very quick acting.
Balance - this is a grounding blend and part of the daily regime. It can aid in harmonizing the various physiological systems of the body and promote tranquility and a sense of balance. Tree oils are very grounding, and it is recommended to use this daily since you always want to stay grounded, with the ability to bend and sway, and adapt with the flow, but not be easily uprooted.
You can also blend some of the oils above together in a bottle:
If you can’t settle down at night- blend Balance and Serenity together.
If you need to wake-up, get excited, be invigorated- blend Citrus Bliss and Elevation together.
A single oil that is great to have on hand is Wild orange. Rubbing a drop or two on your wrists is a great way to bring about more positivity and happiness!
Finally, if you have a child who struggles to settle down, especially in the classroom. Applying Lavender and Vetiver oil daily on the bottom of their feet has been shown to have great results at helping them to calm down and focus.
