What the world needs now is love, yes, more love.. but also.. more light.

Maybe they’re one and the same.

Most of us know how to express love whether that’s to the people we are closest to, or strangers on the street. But do you know how to give more light?

It starts with first recognising it within your self and then as if by magic, or more likely by divine grace, your light inspires someone else to shine too.


Have you noticed a change in the energy of people these days?

Truly, the last few years have knocked us all for a six.

Even for those who are usually pretty good at keeping their vibe high. It’s been hard hearing all the stories of people who have been hurt and lost so much. But there’s been a lot of growth too. A lot of reaching out and community spirit resurfacing. And that’s a good thing!

So what can you do to help boost your own mood?


I know there are a lot of things you can do, and I talk more about that here but this post is supposed to be about how to boost your mood with essential oils, so that’s what we’ll talk about today.

First of all, essential oils by their very nature have a profound effect on our mental and emotional health.

Simply by inhaling them you immediately activate the limbic part of the brain which is where we process emotions and house memories.

You can’t really go wrong with choosing an essential oil to try, however there are some that are especially helpful to boost the mood.


Any of the citrus oils, hands down, will do the job.

Lemon, orange, bergamot, lime etc. They’re just so vibrant, smell so fresh and are super high in d-limonene. You can’t help but smile when you breathe these babies in.


  • Clary Sage (floral)
  • Lavender (floral)
  • Frankincense (balsamic/resin)
  • Geranium (floral)
  • Ylang Ylang (floral)
  • Eucalyptus (wood)
  • Ginger (spice)
  • Rosemary (herb)

All of these oils will help to boost the mood either by awakening the senses, reducing stress or both!

You don’t need to use all of them all at once, just intuitively choose one or two to work with and switch it up from time to time. Inhale straight from the bottle, diffuse or dilute and apply topically as needed.


I have a free Essential Oils Course that goes through the basics of essential oils, how to use them safely, how to save money and everyday uses for your home, beauty, health and more!

I also have a discount code for you if you’d like to try the same top notch oils that I use.
