Oil of the Week: Joy
by Jennifer Triassi, WT yoga instructor and Young Living independent consultant
Joy is an essential oil blend that is a combination of ten different essential oils, and some of the best smelling ones too! All together, Joy is composed of: Lemon, Mandarin, Rose, Roman Chamomile, Palmarosa, Jasmine, Rosewood, Geranium, Ylang Ylang, and Bergamot. Together they combine to create a scent sweeter than any essential oils give off on their own.
This blend is powerful, and it lives up to its name! It's uplifting, acts as an aphrodisiac, and fights infections and bacteria, among other things!
Here are some ways to use it!
Uplifting Bath: Add 2-3 drops of Joy essential oil blend to 1/2 cup epsom salts and dump into 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. Try dabbing a few drops on a cotton ball and place 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.
