Essential Oils 101: Joy

joy

The last oil in the Young Living Everyday Oils Collection is a blend called “Joy.” This oil blend is a mixture of Bergamot, Ylang ylang, Geranium, Lemon, Coriander, Tangerine, Jasmine, Roman chamomile, Palmarosa, and Rose. Joy is calming, uplifting, and can be used on children. This is also a great blend to have on hand for any woman when it’s near or during “that time” of the month because Joy can not only relieve menstrual cramps, but also balances emotions. One caution with this oil is that it can cause photo sensitivity, so avoid large amounts of direct sunlight within 12 hours of using. Joy is also an interesting blend because it works well when applied over the heart area. A good way to remember this is that we all want to bring “joy to our heart!”
