Essential Oil Treatments for Fresh Uplifting Mood
Low mood is a temporary period of sadness or despondency. Lavender, rosemary and St John’s Wort are natural mood lifters; St John’s Wort is particularly effective in treating mood disorders, as it boosts serotonin production, but does not cause sedation.
The recommended dosage is 300mg, taken up to three times a day, though it cannot be taken in conjunction with some medications.
The olfactory properties of lavender and rosemary have been shown to have clear subjective effects on mood and contentment. In aromatherapy, citrus oils are also great for lifting the mood. Traditional Greek Medicine considered certain fragrances to be harmonizing and balancing, and so these were used therapeutically to promote and restore good temperament.
Select 20-30 drops of your preferred essential oils for uplifting mood and mix with 2 ounces of a carrier oil (grapeseed oil is a good option). You can apply the mixture throughout the body or simply apply on the neck and bottom of the feet before going to bed.
Take 15-20 drops of your preferred essential oils for uplifting mood and mix with 2 ounces of carrier oil of your choosing. Apply the mixture into the water only after the water has stopped flowing. Add the mixture while the water is running to evaporate the mixture and reduce the potency.
Select 8-10 drops of your preferred essential oils for uplifting mood and pour into diffuser. Take deep breaths and inhale the essential oil aroma.
Apply 2-4 drops of preferred essential oil for uplifting mood onto cloth/tissue. Hold cloth or tissue in the palms of your hand and take 2-3 deep breaths through the nose.
