How to Use Essential Oils for Uplifting
Essential oils are known for helping with a variety of ailments, from insomnia to anxiety to muscle aches and pains. They are one of the most popular natural remedies to include in your daily routine because they are easy to use, and they have a rather pleasant scent.

In fact, numerous cultures, including the ancient Egyptians, Chinese, Indians and Greeks, have used essential oil for their medicinal and spiritual properties.
So if you feel lethargic or down in the dumps, give aromatherapy a try. Let essential oils encourage positive feelings and uplift the spirit.
Best Essential Oils for Mood
Oils are good for your mood! Essential oils, that is. Did you know that a study has shown that the scent of peppermint oil helps improve memory? Or that lavender is a natural stress reliever?
While many are familiar with the more common essential oils such as lavender and peppermint, there are many types of oils that can be incorporated into your daily life. Each essential oil has its own benefits, though their scents tend to overlap. If you want to use essential oils to improve your mental health, there are a few options worth trying.
There are plenty of oils that can help lift your spirits. For example, you can use rose oil to brighten your day, citrus oil to perk you up, and lavender oil to relax you. In addition, you can try blends of these oils to find the right combination for you.
Using Essential Oils Topically
Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts that have powerful healing and therapeutic benefits. They can be applied to the skin but it is best to first dilute the essential oils with a carrier oil before putting onto your skin. Essential oils are fat soluble by nature so they are able to pass through the fats and tissues of the body.
For this recipe, we are using a 10 ml glass roller bottle. For the carrier oil I like to use jojoba oil in my roller blends but you can choice your base oil of choice.
