Today I’m sharing with you one of my favorite oils *Joy*
You can apply joy to the skin, diffuse or smell it and ingest it as a dietary supplement.
JOY is a blend of bergamot, ylang ylang, geranium, rosewood, lemon, mandarin, jasmine, roman chamomile, palmarosa and rose.
Bergamot is refreshing and uplifting. It helps aid your digestive system, emotional balance and health and is good for your skin and hair.
Ylang Ylang is good for your cardio system, increases relaxation, balances male and female energies and hormones. It also restores confidence and supports emotional health.
Geranium Its aroma lifts the spirit and releases negative emotions. It is also good for your hair and skin.
Rosewood It is emotionally stabilizing.
Lemon is immune stimulating, It aids the digestive system, immune system and respiratory system. It is purifying and up-lifting.
Mandarin is uplifting to the mind and body & brings happiness and peace. It helps reduces stress, irritability and sleeplessness. Good for your skin and hair as well.
Jasmine It is emotionally up-lifting. Aids your hormonal system.
Roman Chamomile It is calming and relaxing.
Palmarosa It helps reduce nervous tension and occasional anxiety for emotional balance. Aids the cardio system and is good for hair and skin.
Rose It is stimulating to the mind and creates a sense of well being.
I’ve read many testimonials about JOY helping mood and feeling down and occasional anxiety, nervousness, stress and tension. I use JOY for emotional support. I tend to freak out and go off the deep end about nothing… right? What woman doesn’t… wait they don’t??? Well I do! So it helps me calm anxiety and stress before it ever starts.
I seriously love this stuff. I’m not kidding. —–> GET SOME JOY HERE
I use it every morning and so does my Livy. She’s my oily bug. We put *joy* over our hearts every morning. With a face like this and those eyelashes… how could I say no? Why would I want to either? She is our sensitive one and *joy* has helped with her whining and hurt feeling all of the time. Those feelings aren’t completely gone but *joy* is helping to get them that way.
*Joy* is photosensitive. Direct exposure to sunlight after use can cause severe dermatitis. Avoid exposing affected area of skin to direct sunlight for 12 hours.
Here are ways to use *joy*:
Rub Joy over the heart to start the day.
Use it as a Perfume by applying on wrists.
Put a drop of JOY behind and around each ear to help reduce irritability. (Could I just bathe in it? Why yes you could.)
Put 4 drops of joy into a 1/2 cup of Epsom salts and then take a warm bath using the salts. =)
Place a few drops on abdomen for monthly discomfort
Diffuse JOY to lift your spirits.
Apply JOY to help the baby blues.
Diffuse it in the car by putting a couple of drops on a cotton ball and place in air vent.
Help stabilize mood swings by using JOY consistently.
Put a few drops in lotion or oil for a relaxing massage.
Diffuse in the bedroom to encourage a little romance.
Scent your laundry by placing a couple drops on a washcloth and throw into the dryer with the rest of the clothes.
Use to manage the feelings of anger. I am known to get a little angry.
It can even help your Dog be happier! Place 2 drops of Joy on the crown on his/her head and watch them start to become a happy puppy!
Feet and hands cold? Try applying 2 drops to the area in need to aid circulation.
It can keep calm down children or yourself. Apply over heart or diffuse.
Can assist in those teenage hormonal years. (It will be my best friend in a couple of years when the girls become teens.)
Can be used in deodorants, shower gels, perfumes
Apply during disappointing times to uplift spirits (think to use on the kids in times like this)
Apply topically or diffuse at bedtime
and counting …
