What essential oils in aromatherapy are mood enhancers?

Lisa Marie Rosati

Essential Oils have the ability to shift your mood. I use essential oils in a diffuser to set different moods or create a desired atmosphere in the space where I am working. I change the essential oils to produce different effects. Here are some examples:

  • For Focus and Centering- Rosemary, Petitgrain, Lavender or Frankincense
  • To Sooth and Relax- Sandalwood, Orange, Rose or Cedar
  • To Become Energized- Pine, Peppermint, Lemon or Grapefruit
  • For Devotional or Meditation Practice- Neroli, Myrrh, Frankincense or Sandalwood
