Are you looking for some assistance managing your emotions, mood and your energy….NATURALLY? In today’s fast-paced environment, we often experience negative moods such as stress, discouragement, and fatigue. Just as being in a good mood gives you a sense of happiness and well-being, bad moods can also lead to negative feelings over time. When it comes to managing your mood, essential oils can help restore your emotional balance and improve your overall attitude in any situation. Essential oils are powerful, natural and effective at quickly balancing our moods and emotions.
Each essential oil group has specific constituent profiles known to elicit distinct emotional responses. Floral essential oils are composed primarily of monoterpene alcohols, which exhibit toning and calming properties. Tree, herb, and grass essential oils are rich in sesquiterpenes, esters, and oxides, which are grounding, soothing, and renewing. On the other end of the spectrum, mint, citrus, and spice essential oils provide powerfully uplifting benefits. Mint essential oils have high concentrations of ketones, which are energizing and uplifting. Citrus oils are generally composed of limonene and beta-pinene, monoterpenes with strong uplifting characteristics. Phenols, the primary chemical constituents of many spice essential oils, are recognized for their warming properties.
Why are our emotions so closely linked to our sense of smell? The answer is most likely brain anatomy. Our olfactory system (sense of smell) starts in the nose and runs all the way back along the bottom of the brain. It also has connections to two parts of the brain that have strong connections to our memory and emotions; the amygdala and hippocampus. This offers us a suggestion as to why smell can trigger so many memories and the emotions tied to those memories so quickly! For me, my dad is a builder and so the smell of pine sawdust immediately takes me back to cuddles with my dad when he got home from work and so Cypress is a real favourite of mine.
Let check out some kits doTERRA have that contain some amazing blends specifically designed to help your emotional wellbeing.
Mood Management Kit
These four intoxicating blends are simply divine. Definitely a MUST HAVE when it comes to essential oils having a profound impact on your mood, energy, emotions and just your life in general. This bundle of oils is a fabulous way to start expanding your collection. It’s not an enrolment kit so if you wanted to enrol with this kit you would need to purchase your enrolment separately for $35. I like to think of the four blends as two “CALMERS” and two “LIFTERS”.
Lavender Peace (USA call it Serenity) – The Calming Blend does just that, calm you down. Relax and unwind with this tranquil blend that combines oils renowned for their ability to lessen feelings of tension, calm emotions and support restful sleep. Diffuse or apply to your feet or wrists during the day to help reduce the worries of life’s stressors or at night to promote quiet sleep. Safe to use with children, diffuse in their room or spray on to their sheets to help them calm and wind down for sleep.
Lavender, Cedarwood, Ho Wood, Ylang Ylang, Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, Vetiver, Vanilla bean and Hawaiian Sandalwood
Balance – The Grounding blend, promotes tranquillity and harmony in the mind and body and balance to emotions. A warm, woody aroma, it creates a sense of calm and wellbeing. This blend contains the oils from big trees and you can imagine their great, big root systems burying deep in to the earth, grounding and anchoring them. Ease anxious feelings, bring harmony to your mind by rubbing this blend on the souls of your feet or diffuse.
Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy and Blue Chamomile in fractionated coconut oil
Citrus Bliss – Invigorating Blend, with seven citrus oils, this blend smells amazingly fruity and fresh that promotes a positive attitude and helps create a blissful and productive environment. Diffuse in the office, classroom or home to promote clarity and focus and boost mood. Safe to eat, this blend can add a wonderful citrus kick to slices or cakes and thanks to the cleansing and disinfecting properties of all citrus oils, this blend can also be used to clean your house!
Wild Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Bergamot, Tangerine, Clementine and Vanilla bean
Elevation – The Joyful Blend, happiness in a bottle! This euphoric scent helps to elevate your mood, promote feelings of confidence and increase energy. Wonderful for that “3:30itis” and you just need a pick-me-up, reach for this blend to help feel revitalised. The sweet, floral yet refreshingly citrus aroma invigorates your mind and lifts your spirits. Really, this blend could be used all day long…first thing in the morning to kick-start your day with some positive vibes, a quick pick-me-up after lunch and a wonderful addition to a bath to help soak away the stress and feel happy before bed.
Lavandin, Lavender, Melissa, Ylang Ylang, Osmanthus, Tangerine, Elemi, Hawaiian Sandalwood and Lemon Myrtle

Looking for really powerful emotional support with your oils? Look no further than these 6 little bottles of magic.

Cheer – The Uplifting Blend, Cheer can counteract negative emotions and provide a boost of happiness and positivity when you are feeling down. A sunny, optimistic aroma of citrus and spice essential oils provides a cheerful boost of happiness and positivity. What can I say but YUM! This is by far my favourite blend in this kit.
Wild Orange, Clove, Star Anise, Lemon Myrtle, Nutmeg, Vanilla Bean, Ginger, Cinnamon, Zdravetz
Passion – Have you lost your why, your mojo, your passion? This Inspiring Blend of spice and herb essential oils will help you rekindle excitement in your life.

Console – Losing something or someone you love can be deeply disorienting and painful. Words unspoken and questions unanswered may keep you worried and unsettled. Console, the Comforting Blend of floral and tree essential oils will help you close the door on sadness and take your first steps on a hopeful path toward emotional healing. Mend your broken heart with Console.
Frankincense, Patchouli, Ylang Ylang, Labdanum, Amyris, Sandalwood, Rose and Osmanthus
Forgive – Are you carrying a burden that grows heavier with time? Would you be better off just letting it go and facing a future unfettered by anger and guilt? When you are ready to move forward, Forgive the Renewing Blend of tree and herb essential oils will help you discover the liberating action of forgiving, forgetting, and moving on. Start each of your tomorrows relieved and contented.
Spruce, Bergamot, Juniper Berry, Myrrh, Arborvitae, Nootka Tree, Thyme and Citronella
Peace – This Reassuring Blend of floral and mint essential oils is a positive reminder you don’t have to be perfect to find peace. Slow down, take a deep breath, and reconnect with the composed, collected you. Everything turning out fine begins with believing it will. I personally find this quite a musky oil as the Vetiver is quite strong but the application definitely makes a difference as when it is diffused it is much lighter than straight out of the bottle.
Vetiver, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, Clary Sage, Marjoram, Labdanum and Spearmint
