Essential oils improve mood when used on certain areas on the skin or in a diffuser. So look no further than essential oils to uplift your mood.
Essential Oils can be used for many things and I’ve already mentioned the top 3 reasons to use essential oils. But, did you know that essential oils improve mood too? It’s true! Certain essential oils can can also help uplift your mood or emotional state.
Essential oils can play a big role when it comes to your mood! They can help to promote relaxation, boost/uplift your mood, help you focus, and even help with managing anger! Essential oils on their own will help but for best results it is encouraged that you also lead a healthy lifestyle including healthy eating, having a restful sleep and getting regular exercise.
Which Essential Oils Improve Mood?
There are a number of essential oils that can assist with uplifting your mood. When using essential oils for this purpose, people often add the essential oil into their diffuser so that it can be smelt throughout the home.
Another fantastic way to benefit from uplifting essential oils is to add a few drops into a diffusing necklace. If you do not have a diffuser or diffusing jewelry, add a few drops to the palms of your hands, rub your hands together and cup them over your nose. Slowly inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth.
If you prefer, you can also apply these oils to your throat, over your heart or to the soles of your feet. If applying citrus essential oils, remember to make sure that they aren’t exposed to direct sunlight as discussed in this post.
