The fastest and easiest way to use essential oils for lifting your mood is to inhale them.

Rub a drop or two in the palms of your hands, cup them over your nose, and inhale deeply.

Essential oils have very small molecules, which, when inhaled, travel directly from the olfactory bulb to the amygdala (a cluster of neurons in your brain), which is intimately involved in feeling emotions.

Once there, they begin to harmonize and balance your emotions, thus making it easier to feel cheerful, happy and even joyful.

Rub a drop or two on the back of your neck – every nerve in your body goes through your neck.

Rub a drop on as perfume. Or rub it on your hair – you then become the ‘human diffuser’ – you may notice people around you smiling as they inhale the elevating aromas.

Read on for some ideas of uplifting scents. The single oils are listed first, followed by our beautiful blends.

Bergamot essential oil has a light citrus aroma, which makes it a great oil to help you get going in the morning.

The peel of the yellow-green, orange-shaped fruit is cold pressed to create this pure oil.

Bergamot’s aroma is tart yet sweet and uplifting yet relaxing.

We cold-press Grapefruit essential oil from the peels of the fresh fruit for a citrusy oil with the bright aroma of a grapefruit orchard.

It’s this sweet, invigorating aroma that members enjoy for its ability to encourage feelings of joy, satisfaction, and playfulness.

Jade Lemon™ has a unique lemon-lime scent that is pleasing and uplifting.

Diffuse Jade Lemon for a wonderful, zesty fragrance that is clean and inviting.

Lemon essential oil’s fresh aroma can help you feel like you are uplifted and revitalized.

Brighten your day with Lemon Verbena! With an aroma that purifies your environment and invigorates your senses, it sends you to sunlit fields of lemon bliss.

This fresh, uplifting, citrus-herbal oil comes from a fragrant shrub, not a citrus fruit. Use this zesty essential oil as a personal or home fragrance, or as a midday pick-me-up.

Young Living is proud to offer only true, 100 percent pure Lemon Verbena essential oil produced with our Seed to Seal® quality commitment. Because the plant yields very little oil, many essential oils marketed as Lemon Verbena are adulterated and blended with other oils or additives to increase the amount in a bottle. Not from us; we offer you only pure essential oils for your pure lifestyle.

With a bright and refreshing citrus scent, Lime essential oil smells just like freshly sliced limes. When diffused, this summery aroma can uplift your environment.

If you’re feeling uninspired, try diffusing Lime oil for a bright, refreshing aroma that may clear a path to greater creativity. This quality also makes Lime a great choice for diffusing in classrooms and children’s play areas.

Orange essential oil, cold-pressed from the rinds of oranges, has a juicy aroma reminiscent of the fresh fruit.

An important ingredient in popular blends such as Citrus Fresh™, Abundance™, Christmas Spirit™, and Peace & Calming®, Orange oil offers a sweet, peaceful aroma that can fill a room with a sense of peace, harmony, and creativity.

Diffuse orange while home schooling or in your childrens’ playroom to keep the little ones cheerful.

Petitgrain is refreshing and uplifting when used aromatically.

Petitgrain is distilled from the bitter orange tree, as is the gentle fragrance of neroli. However, petitgraino oil is distilled from the leaves and sometimes the twigs and branches of the tree, while neroli is distilled from the blossoms.

Tangerine essential oil (Citrus reticulata) is extracted by cold pressing the rind of the tangerine fruit.

I think of tangerine as the ‘zippiest’ of all the fresh citrus oils. One inhale and I’m feeling zippy again!

Tangerine oil is loved by children and adults alike, with its delightfully sweet aroma that can create a happy, contented mindset.
