If Mama Ain’t Happy, Ain’t Nobody Happy!
by Ashley Knight
Our experiences on this earth include tough seasons in our lives. Whether it is death of a loved one, loss of a job, financial stress, marital trouble, etc., we will have a time in our lives where we could use a little more joy. However, it doesn’t have to be a life-altering tough season for us to need more joy. Sometimes we find our need for joy in the mundane, daily routine that can feel like we’re running a never ending marathon. As a mother, I feel like I am living in extremes. One moment I’m overcome by the sweet, innocence of a child and the next I’m so frustrated I could scream. It’s in these moments that I reach for…
It’s in these moments that I reach for…
Joy™ essential oil blend is a delicious blend of Bergamot peel oil, Ylang ylang flower oil, Geranium flower oil, Lemon peel oil, Coriander seed oil, Tangerine peel oil, Jasmine oil, Roman chamomile flower oil, Palmarosa oil, and Rose flower oil. These oils come together to form a sweet, citrusy and floral aroma that smells happy. Joy™ can be very uplifting to your mood and may help to bring joy into your heart. We love to diffuse Joy™ when we’re having guests over and want to lighten the mood and create a lively atmosphere.
Not only can Joy™ essential oil blend be uplifting, I’ve heard from a couple people that they’ve had success using it to alleviate menstrual cramps. Talk about bringing more joy into your life! If my menstrual cramps were alleviated then I would certainly be more joyful.
Here are a couple testimonies about using Joy to help with menstrual cramps:
“I was feeling over emotional and experiencing menstrual achiness in ovary areas and overall low energy then felt drawn to Joy™ oil blend. Simply put a few drops in palm and rubbed over ovaries and low back along spine and pain subsided within a few minutes. Spirits gradually lifting and pain has not returned thanks to Joy and intent to be present. This is easier than meditation for immediate relief.”
“I recently read that Joy™ essential oil blend might help monthly menstrual cramps. I tried it and was amazed as my cramps just melted away within minutes of applying a couple drops of Joy on my abdomen. I did not have to take any over-the-counter pain killers for the first time ever! I had to try it again the next month just to be sure and it still worked! I will never be without my Joy™ oil. I also use it on my lower back when the cramps are especially bad and might also layer Peppermint oil on top for even better relief.”
When we’re fighting to make it through the tough times, Joy™ essential oil can be a tool to help us counter the sadness that seeps in.
“Last year I experienced depression and it was so unlike me. I purchased the blend Joy™, put a drop in my palm to inhale it. Within 10 minutes I started to feel better. I continued to use Joy™ multiple times during the day, and within 2-3 days, I felt as though I could take action and move away from my depression. It was very powerful. I then started to use Valor every morning on my feet and added that to my routine of breathing in Joy™. After a week, I felt so much more balanced that I no longer felt depressed or needed to use Joy™ as much. Valor is now my go-to oil to start my day.”
In addition to lifting your emotions, Joy™ essential oil can also be worn as a perfume, used as an aftershave, it may increase circulation and it’s a great room freshener. Our family has also applied it directly to our armpits to use it as a natural deodorant. It smells so good it’s hard to not want to bathe in it.
I’m hoping that you stumble across this article right when you need it most. There is hope and this too shall pass. When we have a little more joy in our lives, then we can see beyond the problem at hand. Joy™ essential oil blend isn’t a miracle fix for these hard times, but it might uplift your spirits and help you see your situation with a little more joy.
