A diy blend to use essential oils for a good mood

Feeling blue? Try this DIY essential oil blend for emotions

Have you ever felt more positive and peaceful after spending time in nature?

Around trees and flowers and plants? 

It’s an almost magical ability that nature has to inspire a good mood! 

Essential oils concentrate this effect, so we can experience nature’s emotional support in just a few drops.

Let’s talk about 3 essential oils for a good mood, why they work, and how you can use them in a convenient, easy-to-make DIY blend for emotions.


3 Essential Oils for a Good Mood

  • Cypress essential oil (Cupressus sempervirens)
  • Fragonia™ essential oil (Agonis fragrans)
  • Neroli essential oil (Citrus aurantium var. amara)

Cypress essential oil offers security and emotional support through transitions and change. 

You’ll love it if you’re moving houses, changing jobs, or have experienced loss. Cypress knows how to comfort us, while helping our minds and hearts focus on inspired new directions. 

Fragonia™ essential oil comes from Australia, and has a sweet, spicy, citrusy scent that’s sooo intoxicating! (The aroma alone can put you in a good mood!)

It contains some of the same components as Lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia), and has an impressive ability to soothe the nervous system and stir up stagnant, blocked emotional energy. 

Neroli essential oil is steam distilled from the beautiful, white, aromatic flowers of orange trees. 

It’s intensely relaxing for a peaceful, good mood—a great essential oil for when worries or overthinking are interrupting your good night’s sleep. If you find yourself struggling with hot emotions (such as anger or anxiety), Neroli could be a very helpful essential oil for you.

Now you know about 3 essential oils for a good mood, and why they’re helpful.
