Mend Your Mood With Essential Oils
Jennifer Tanner, Esthetician


Essential oils are great not only as scent boosters for products but also to help soothe, heal, energize or relax. Plants are very powerful and essential oils are literally the strongest part: the essence. Since they are so powerful they should be used sparingly, especially for use on the face. Start with 1-3 drops mixed with 1 oz carrier oil of your choice.

Feeling irritable, sad, pre-menstrual? Try any of these oils separately or together to mend your mood!
Mood Mender:
Geranium
Rose
Sandalwood
Jasmine
Orange
Ylang Ylang (warning!! Very strong! Use one drop only!)
Neroli
Frankincense
Lavender
Clary Sage (do not use if pregnant)

Feeling tired or have lack of energy when you need it? Try any of these oils separately or together as a quick pick-me up!
Energy Booster:
Peppermint
Basil (good for headaches)
Bergamot (good if you are feeling anxious)
Grapfruit
Lemon
Lime
Rosemary

Having a hard time sleeping or relaxing after a long day? Try one or more of these to calm and soothe.
Sleepytime:
Chamomile
Lavender
Clary Sage
Frankincense
Neroli

Having a hard time saying goodbye to summer and hello to fall? Try these oils as a blend to get you in the pre-holiday mood!
Warming Blend:
Cinnamon
Clove
Orange
