Joy is an essential oil blend that combines ten different essential oils, creating a lovely floral scent that is both relaxing and uplifting. Joy is composed of Lemon, Mandarin, Rose, Roman Chamomile, Palmarosa, Jasmine, Rosewood, Geranium, Ylang Ylang, and Bergamot. Together they harmonize and emit a scent sweeter than any of the essential oils give off on their own.
This blend is powerful, and it lives up to its name! I think of it as literal joy in a bottle.
Here are just some of the many ways to use it:
Uplifting Bath: Add 2-3 drops of Joy essential oil blend to 1/2 cup epsom salts and add to your bath for an instant mood boost.
Freshen Floors: Add a few drops of Joy essential oil blend to a rag, and rub down your hardwood floors. For carpet, try dabbing a few drops on a cotton ball and placing it inside the canister of your vacuum.
Ease Anxiety: Feeling tense? Rub a drop of Joy essential oil blend on your wrists, neck, heart area, or feet.
Rejuvenating Body Lotion: Add a few drops of Joy essential oil blend to an everyday lotion for a lovely additional scent.
Soothe Lower Back Pain: Daily application of Joy essential oil can help alleviate lower back pain.
DIY Car Air Freshener: This one is a must for me (my car usually smells like my dog!). Just put one drop on a cotton ball and stick it in the air vents of your car for a sweet scent. Or you can add it to a spray bottle with water and spritz away!
DIY Scented Stationery: Add a drop of Joy essential oil to give any stationery a luxurious scent and a nice personal touch.
Give a Romantic Massage: Add 10-12 drops of Joy essential oil to 2 oz. of massage oil.
Naturally Great-Smelling Laundry: Place a few drops of Joy essential oil on a cloth and throw it in with the rest of the laundry.
Alleviate Menstrual Cramps: A few drops of Joy essential oil rubbed directly onto the abdomen can help ease cramps.
Brighten your Day: Diffuse Joy essential oil in the house to give everyone a nice boost. If you’re alone, dab a few drops on your palm, heart area or the tip of your nose. Sometimes I even wear this as a perfume! Just a dab on the wrists and back of the neck. (Insider tip: If you're not typically a fan of floral scents, this blend may not be your favorite, but it can be combined in the diffuser with Citrus Fresh to create a more balanced scent that freshens the air and appeals to everyone!)
I like to diffuse and share joy essential oils with my yoga clients to help lift our spirits as we practice backbending sequences and open our hearts!
