Essential Oils to Boost Mood: Happy Joy Blend

On days when I’m letting stress get the best of me, Lee always tells me, “Katie, everything is great.” This gentle reminder helps pull me out of the glass case of emotion I’ve built for myself and back to the reality that life is good. 

There are days when happiness seems to flow out like bubbles. Other days, the choice to enjoy life and bring joy to others is tough.  Lee is my number one encourager, but when he’s not around and I need the extra reminder that “Katie, everything is great.” I start to diffuse our Happy Joy Blend. This blend is specifically infused with essential oils to boost mood.

A roll-on is a diluted essential oil put into a container with a rollerball. This makes it super easy to take with you wherever you go, plus having it prediluted makes it safe to use on your skin.

You can make your own with these 10 ml roll-on bottles, or you can buy a Happy Joy Roll-on already made.


Have you ever made your own soap? Foaming hand soap and melt-and-pour soap are both simple to make. Using essential oils makes your recipes natural, and Happy Joy is one of my favorite blends to use in soap making. Try it in one of the following recipes:

Things to Remember When Using This Blend

Always dilute essential oil before using it topically. Failing to do so can cause irritation. Check out this handy dilution chart we created for topical use. We recommend using a 1-3% dilution rate with this blend.

Sweet Orange and Grapefruit Essential Oils can be phototoxic. This means they can make you more prone to sunburn. So don’t use it on the skin before spending time in the sun. 

This oil is considered safe to use with individuals 10+.

Breastfeeding and pregnant women should stay away from Basil Essential Oil.

Happy Joy Essential Oil Blend is not safe to diffuse and use topically (when highly diluted) on cats and dogs.

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is best in small quantities, as it is in this blend. Overuse can cause headaches and nausea. As with every essential oil, some people are more sensitive to this oil than others.

Never ingest an essential oil even if it is generally regarded as safe unless under the supervision of a doctor certified in aromatherapy. 

This blend is not meant to treat or diagnose depression or any illness or disease. We do not recommend replacing any medications with this blend. If you are struggling with mental health, please talk to a doctor.

 Please note: This post is a compilation of suggestions made by those that have extensively used essential oils and has not been verified scientifically with clinical tests nor reviewed by medical experts.
