ESSENTIAL OILS CAN BE VERY EFFECTIVE AT CHANGING THE MOOD WHEN USED AROMATICALLY.  LET’S TALK ABOUT 5 ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER BLENDS FOR MOOD SUPPORT. 

If you come to my house 99% of the time you will find a diffuser going, if not 5 diffusers going!  I love the fresh aroma of citrus oils all the way to the warm, spicy smell of cinnamon in the air.  Not only do essential oils make a home smell nice, but they also can be used to support the mood.

Certain essential oils can help to brighten the mood, uplift the spirts, and even promote natural energy!  I am excited to share my favorite 5 essential oil diffuser blends for mood support.

HOW DO ESSENTIAL OILS WORK WITH THE BRAIN?

The science behind how essential oils work aromatically is rather fascinating. I’ll be honest, when I first started using essential oils I thought diffusers were mainly for smell and a good replacer for candles. The more I research the more I learned how amazing they could be for immune support, respiratory issues, and mood support.

Your scene of smell, also known as the olfactory system, is the part of the sensory system that allows you to smell. As you inhale molecules out of the air it goes through the nasal cavity and directly connects with the limbic system.  The limbic system is known as the emotional brain.  It is the part of the brain that effects emotions, stimulation, memory, and stress levels.  It also plays a role in registering pleasure, pain, fear, and comfort.   Has a certain smell ever brought back a memory?  This is why!

Essential oil diffusers disperse tiny molecules of essential oils into the air.  As you breathe the air the oils are easily absorbs by the body. Every essential oil has a different chemical make up and each one has a very specific thing it can do for your body and mood. When diffusing essential oils you can use one oil or a blend of oils.

HAPPY/UPLIFTING/BRIGHT
When I think about essential oils for mood support my first thought is citrus oils.  Cirtus oils help cells return to their normal state and interrupt unhealthy stress responses.  They natural uplift the mood, give energy, and promote feelings of positivity.

When diffusing essential oils to make the mood happy, uplifted, and bright you can choose a few of your favorite citrus essential oils!

3 drops lemon essential oil
2 drops lime essential oil
1 drop wild orange essential oil

STRESS/ANXIOUSNESS/OVERWHELMED
Because the limbic system is the part of the brain that controls stress levels and stimulation, inhaling essential oils can be very effective for relieving stress and anxiousness.

There are several essential oils that can be helpful for stress and anxious feelings, but again just choose a few of your favorites. Change it up and see what works best for you.  Learn more about essential oils for stress and anxiousness here.

SAD/LONELINESS
Feelings of sadness can come about for many different reasons.  A tragedy, feeling inadequate, or a sudden change. Sadness and depressed feelings can cause fatigue, loss of appetite, and loneliness.  Essential oils can be inhaled to help combat these feelings.
