Not everyone likes to wear scents or fill their home with a diffused essential oil, but the fact remains that a good quality essential oil can help elevate your mood, shift you emotionally and just plain make you feel good. One of my favorite ways to enjoy the oils I use is to put a couple of drops in the corner of my shower in the morning. The steam from the shower lifts the scent up and I lavish in the smell and good feelings without having to douse myself or my home.
Just this morning my husband was in a cranky mood and dumping his negativity on me. I used A Peaceful Path‘s “Clearing” blend and by the time my shower was over I was feeling great. This is actually my favorite for starting the day clean and clear even if everyone is in a great mood. Here are a few more of my favorites and why:
- I love Lavender for a general pick-me-up
- Eucalyptus is great if I feel a cold coming on
- Lemon or Citrus is a great dose of morning sunshine when it’s not so sun-shiney out
- A Peaceful Path’s Opening to Love is another of my favorites — especially on date night!
