Using essential oils to boost your mood

Don’t skip one of the most important parts of natural stress relief: cultivating joy!

The more you can keep your mood up, the less room stress has to settle into your mind and body. But for many people who struggle with stress, the question is . . . how do you keep your mood up?

Bringing more happiness into your life is going to look different for everyone. That said, there are a few tried-and-true ways to practice the art of joy.

Countless studies have shown that exercise releases endorphins that make us less susceptible to feeling pain and more open to joy. If you need a little support sticking to an exercise routine, essential oils can help. Discover our top 10 essential oils for exercise and how to use them!

Other studies have found that simply laughing with friends can increase the flow of endorphins through your body!

Aromatherapy also brings a lot of happiness! Schedule some regular time to work with essential oils. Making blends for yourself and others is a joy unto itself, and your blends can bring a big smile to someone’s face—which can brighten your own smile as well!

More ways to cultivate joy include taking the time to get a massage, listening to beautiful music, playing with children or pets, spending quality time with people you love, eating delicious and healthy food, and having fun with your hobbies.
