Uplifting Essential Oils

The therapeutic benefits of Essential Oils are vast and broad. Their incredible ability to enhance your mood is one of the best advantages of using Aromatherapy.

It is a quick and easy way to help encourage positive emotions and a better outlook on life. Simply inhaling some of these uplifting oils or blends can help turn that frown upside down.

REVIVE has some amazing blends that are created to help evoke happy thoughts and boost your spirits. These are expertly crafted synergies that contain a variety of Essential Oils known to combat gloominess.

Can Essential Oils Really Contribute To An Uplifting Mood?

You might be a bit skeptical about using essential oil for an uplifting mood. Is it really possible that these little extractions can change your mindset and alter your state?

Yes – it is not just entirely possible, but one of the most natural, holistic ways you can uplift your mood and feel better mentally. There are some specific essential oils families we recommend using – which we will cover shortly. Let’s first look at some specific blends you can give a try if you find yourself constantly down in the dumps.

Citrus Delight is a refreshing blend that lifts your mood and even offers some energy to aid in getting you through the day. As the name implies, it has many mood-improving citrus oils, but also comes through with a warm sweetness of Vanilla, which is great for fighting stress.

Fantastic Blend is a bright, floral scent that promotes feelings of happiness and makes you feel, well… Fantastic! There are also specific essential oils that offer incredible mood uplifting effects, including clary sage essential oil and peppermint essential oil.

As you can see, certain essential oil blends are fully capable of boosting your mood. Let’s look at some specific essential oil families that you can always turn to when you need a little boost.

What Are The Most Uplifting Essential Oils To Put Me In A Better Mood?

There are a few specific types of essential oil that are well known for their mood uplifting properties. Each of these “types” or “families” has a multitude of essential oils that fall under them and can be used in your efforts to uplift your mood.

Let’s start off with the citrus family – as these particular essential oils have some of the most powerful mood-boosting properties.

Citrus Essential Oils

Essential Oils that come from citrus fruits have an uncanny ability to make you smile. Breathing in these fresh, tangy scents can actually increase your serotonin levels (the happy chemical).

They are also known to help reduce stress levels, thus helping you feel better emotionally. Lemon Essential Oil is known to aid in increasing mental alertness and promoting a positive outlook.

Grapefruit Oil is an amazingly cheerful scent that brightens your day with just one sniff. And the lesser-known Yuzu Essential Oil that comes from the zesty Asian fruit, is great for soothing the nerves while supporting a joyful heart.

Floral Essential Oils

You know the phrase, “Stop and smell the roses?” Well, this can actually be really great advice when you are not in the best mood. Some flowers are very beneficial for helping you improve your mood.

Jasmine is an exotic flower that is well-loved in many parts of the world because it smells amazing. But it also has the ability to positively impact your mood. Studies have shown Jasmine Oil to be effective in helping relieve depression symptoms.

Geranium Essential Oil is a highly scented oil that has shown to be effective in reducing anxiety (even during labor), and promotes emotional balance. And, of course, Lavender. This popular Essential Oil is great for calming and soothing of all kinds.

When used to help stabilize emotions, Lavender Essential Oil can aid in ridding stress, helping you feel uplifted and not so down.

Evergreen Essential Oils

You may have noticed that when you hike through the woods, you come out feeling great. It’s not just the exercise and fresh air (of course, those are amazing too), but it is also from inhaling those incredible evergreens.

These large, fragrant trees are exceptionally good for boosting your spirits. Fir oils, including Balsam, Douglas, and Siberian, can really help soothe anxious feelings and encourage a sense of emotional steadiness.

Black Spruce Essential Oil is refreshing and elevating. This stimulating scent calms frazzled nerves and can help you to get out of your afternoon slump. Finally, Pine Oil is wonderful for fighting fatigue and can even help eliminate grief.

The Best DIY Diffuser Blend Recipes For An Uplifted Mood

Essential oils are not a cure and do not replace proper medical care when needed for extreme cases of depression.

But, they can be beneficial when you are feeling low and need a little boost. If you’re struggling to motivate yourself to start the day, or get out and meet up with some friends – diffusing the right essential oil blend can prove incredibly helpful.

Here are a few diffuser blends to try next time you need a little emotional pick me up. As always, we recommend shopping for your essential oil at Revive to ensure you get 100% therapeutic-grade essential oil.
