We all have those days that suck! You know the ones, you wake up late, miss your bus, kids are annoying you, haven’t had enough sleep, have a to-do list longer than your arm or you spill your coffee all over you in the car on your drive to work.

Any of these things can put you in a bad mood and it is easy to stay feeling that way for the whole day. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are many things you can do to pull yourself out of your funk and get a smile back on your dial. Put on some good tunes and sing your heart out {or do a dance like no one is watching}, call a friend to have a chat, do some exercise, pay attention to your breathing {meditate if that is your thing} or simply inhale some of the oils I like to call the happy oils. I often turn to these to pick me up when I am suffering from 3:30itis or when I feel like I am getting nowhere with the things I have to do, or when my kids are driving me insane {mummas, I know you hear me on this one}.

I know we can all do with something to pick us up every now and then so I wanted to share the top 5 oils I use to put a smile on my face:


Cheer is one of doTERRA’s emotional aromatherapy blends and has a sunshiny, optimistic aroma. It can counteract negative emotions and provide a boost of happiness and positivity when you are feeling down.

Everyone knows a bright disposition and cheerful attitude can smooth over many of the bumps and challenges of life, right? But, sometimes no amount of positive self-talk is enough to avoid the blues. dōTERRA Cheer Uplifting Blend of citrus and spice essential oils provides a cheerful boost of happiness and positivity when you are feeling down. Its sunshiny, fresh, optimistic aroma will brighten any moment of your day.


One of doTERRA’s mood management oils, Elevation is the Joyful blend. As the name suggests, Elevation is an invigorating combination of essential oils that blends euphoric scents to elevate your mood, promote feelings of confidence, and increase your energy.

Elevation is the perfect blend for those moments when you need to be revitalized. This exciting blend provides an invigorating combination of essential oils that can elevate your mood and increase your energy. Elevation combines the uplifting and euphoric floral scents of Lavandin, Lavender, Melissa, Ylang Ylang, and Osmanthus with Tangerine, Elemi, Hawaiian Sandalwood, and Lemon Myrtle to create a unique blend that promotes a positive mood and feelings of confidence.

Wild Orange

If you are feeling down or sad but also need a boost of energy this powerhouse oil is for you. With multiple health benefits and an energizing aroma that can uplift the mind and body, Wild Orange is one of doTERRA’s top selling essential oils. Wild orange has been shown to increase positivity and having this oil around can definitely help to put a smile on your dial.

As well as this, Wild Orange is high in monoterpenes and possesses stimulating and purifying qualities, making it ideal to support healthy immune system function. Diffusing Wild Orange will energize and uplift the mind and body while purifying the air. Wild Orange enhances any essential oil blend with a fresh, sweet, refreshing aroma.


With both calming and uplifting abilities, Bergamot can dissipate anxious feelings while simultaneously providing cleansing and purifying benefits.

Bergamot is the most delicate of the citrus plants, requiring special climate and soil in order to thrive. Italians have used Bergamot for years to reduce feelings of stress and to soothe and rejuvenate skin. In Greece, the unripe fruits are used as sweetmeats, eaten by the spoonful as a dessert or with coffee. Bergamot is unique among citrus oils due to its ability to be both uplifting and calming, making it ideal to help with anxious and sad feelings.

Citrus Bliss

Merging the major benefits of citrus essential oils, Citrus Bliss is the invigorating blend  and holds energising and refreshing properties that can uplift mood and reduce stress {we all need this from time to time}.

Citrus Bliss merges the benefits of citrus essential oils. doTERRA combines the powerful essences of Wild Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Bergamot, Tangerine, and Clementine with a hint of Vanilla Absolute to form this unique and harmonious blend. Citrus Bliss has natural, potent compounds with cleansing properties. Mixed with water, Citrus Bliss is a perfect solution for wiping down countertops and other surfaces while producing a fresh, sweet scent.




You can probably see a theme here – all of the above oils and blends are citrus oils or have citrus oils in them. Citrus oils help you to feel joyful and happy. They have uplifting and energising properties that can help you get out of the funk you are in. Lemon didn’t make it into the top 5 {it comes in at number 6 for me} but I often refer to it as liquid sunshine for its ability to uplift mood much like spending time in the sunshine does.
