Christmas is fast approaching and it's been a pretty bumpy year for us all. I have been more thankful than ever for my wonderful oily world this year... being part of a supportive and loving community, meeting some gorgeous new people and using essential oils to help support my emotions and my wellbeing. So I wanted to share with you my favourite oily ways to spread some happiness this Christmas.
1. Uplifting Aromas
If you have not discovered the power of aromatherapy then this is the time to start. Aside from it being a world of incredible aromas that have the power to lift your mood, aromatherapy has a host of other benefits. If you would like to find out more about aromatherapy and diffusing oils to enjoy their beautiful aromas then do have a read of this blog
The top oils that never fail to lift my mood are:
There are many different citrus oils and to be honest, they all smell incredible, however, Wild Orange is just so irresistible. It has such a joyful smell that lifts my mood and I find it also gives me an often needed boost of energy. This is a great CAN DO oil to have to hand.
This is a special blend of oils created by doTerra, especially designed to lift emotions. It combines the power of both citrus and spice oils, and I just love its incredible aroma - it's just like having a dose of sunshine in a bottle - and we all have days where we need an extra bit of sunshine to lift our spirits!
I have to mention this wonderful blend, it’s like Christmas in a bottle and I can’t help but feel happy when I smell it. I particularly love diffusing this when we have get-togethers and family time over the holidays...it is just such a welcoming aroma.

All too often we forget just how important it is to take a bit of time out to care for ourselves. To be happy we need to nourish our soul and a wonderful way to do this is to take time out of our busy schedules and practise Yoga. It combines posture, meditation, breathing and deep relaxation. Regularly practising yoga will help you to focus on the present moment, lower your stress levels and at the same time improve your muscle strength. Combine your yoga with diffusing essential oils to bring extra joy and peace into your day.
3. Delicious Flavours
One of my favourite discoveries when I first came across doTerra is that their essential oils are so pure that many of them can be taken internally. Now, you do have to be careful and check before you get creative as some oils just can’t be used this way; however I just love the pop of flavour the oils ad
d to my favourite drinks. I have put below my top drinks and different oil combinations for you to try. Just remember that you only need a smidge of a drop as essential oils do pack a lot of flavour.
Coffee: Wild Orange
Hot Chocolate: Peppermint
Lemonade: Lavender or Lemon
Mulled Wine: Cinnamon, Clove, Wild Orange or OnGuard
Gin and Tonic: Lemon or Lime
Cocktails and Mocktails: Lemon, Wild Orange, Lime, Tangerine or Grapefruit
The added bonus; you also get to enjoy the many other incredible benefits these oils offer when you take them internally.
4. Treat Yourself
Don’t we all feel happy when we look and feel fabulous? When our skin glows and our hair shines and we smell amazing?. I am a huge advocate for natural beauty, and with essential oils, there honestly is a solution for everything. Beauty products are very personal to our own preferences so below are some articles I have put together to help you find the right oils to suit you….there are so many to try!
