It’s Day 6 of my blog series Young Living Essential Oils. If you’re just tuning in, welcome! Please have a look at the previous posts if you’d like to get caught up.

Today I want to talk about Joy. Literally and figuratively.

Yesterday was one of those days where, from the moment I rose from sleep I was consumed by work and life details and stress and admittedly…anxiety.  Don’t get me wrong, it was a very good and productive day. I taught three great RomneyRide classes. I completed task after task after task. I made more lists and lists of lists. I set goals, I wrapped up some old projects. But, I  ran myself ragged into a state of exhaustion and adrenal fatigue (more on that subject in a later blog post).

I had an epiphany by nightfall  that I had worked so hard all day at checking things off the list and making things ‘perfect’ that I forgot to enJOY even a granule of the fruits of my labors.

Instead of lamenting or telling myself that I would ‘do better tomorrow’, I remembered the little bottle of Joy Essential Oil blend that came in my Everyday Essential Oils pack. I pulled it out of my kit poured three drops in my palm and applied behind my ears and on my wrists. Immediately I felt transported to a new state of emotional balance. I remembered to breathe. I remembered to play some pretty music on the radio. I began thinking happy thoughts. I did not feel so tired. And there was my Joy!

Joy is a blend of Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Rosewood, Lemon, Mandarin, Jasmine, Roman Chamomile, Palmrosa, and Rose oils. Joy Oil can help to open the adrenal glands which is helpful when feeling overwhelmed and depleted.

Today is laundry day…well, everyday is laundry day… but today I am putting two drops of Joy oil onto a wet cloth and putting it in the dryer with my clothes. I want to carry the Joy with me in every way possible!

Several folks have contacted me  inquiring how and where to purchase the oils. If you’re interested in buying oils please see the post from Day 4: How To Purchase Young Living Essential Oils. You can also reach out to me via email at
