10 Uplifting Essential Oil Products to Boost Your Mood

Laura McQuarrie
By  | 

Essential oils are potent natural solutions for health that can be used in many ways to support the respiratory, cardiovascular, immune, digestive and nervous systems. As well as helping to relieve occasional muscle pain, headaches or inflammation, these natural extracts from seeds, roots, flowers and bark can also serve as powerful tools for mood management.
 
This is because our scent receptors are connected to the limbic system in the brain, which links different aromas to memories and emotions. When you encounter a new scent for the first time, this system instantly creates associations that tie it to a particular person, event or moment.

The next time you smell that same scent, the brain recalls those feelings. Since scent experiences are so deeply personal, this explains why one person might react to the same scent in an entirely different way from someone else.
 
Essential oils – which are naturally and beautifully fragrant – and other aromatherapy products can also help us to transform the experiences we have in the world through scent. Aromatherapy can have a big influence on our mood. The next time you’re needing a little boost, try these essential oil recommendations.
 

Here are 10 uplifting essential oil products for mood management:
