Essential Oils for fighting sadness

Sadness can come from many different avenues into our lives.  Sadness can stem from loss of a loved one, financial loss, job disappointment, or even from stress or worry.  Sadness cuts into the soul and causes our bodies to become ill.  It can cause your body to increase hormones which can adversely affect your immune systems making it weak and inefficient.  To keep sadness away or help with current issues, essential oils in aromatherapy can help you fight away the emotional roots of sadness.

Another complication with sadness is that it can ultimately lead to deep depression.  Depression is a scary place for anyone who has suffered with the disease.  Depression can lead to emotional ups and downs making it hard to stay calm at work, deal with stress, and live a fulfilling life.  Sadness that leads to depression can be helped and maintained with essential oils in aromatherapy.

You can burn aromatherapy in your office or at home to help with sadness.  Burning essential oils in your office especially if you are depressed will greatly increase your mood and help you fight off bad emotions.  Keeping you calm and balanced, essential oils will help you become more productive and even create a better work environment for you.  It can also help you better communicate with coworkers, your bosses, and even help you provide better customer service.

You can also burn essential oils in aromatherapy in your home.  Burning a tiny few drops can greatly enhance your mood and overall health.  Beating sadness is hard to do alone especially if you are a stay at home mom or housewife who spends many hours alone.  By using essential oils you can help cheer your mood and keep calm even during those times when the kids are acting up or taking care of the home becomes difficult during a specific day.  Being on an emotional roller coaster makes the whole day become ruined and your down spiral can show in your face even if you try not to let your kids notice.

The below list of essential oils can greatly help you fight sadness and rid yourself from depression.  It is important to use them when you feel emotions becoming negative.  Even better, use the oils several times a week to help prevent sadness from developing and balancing your emotions throughout the day.  Bergamot and Neroli can greatly enhance your mood and keep you uplifted throughout the day.  You can use them individually as well for their separate positive components, or use them together for an especially powerful mood enhancer.


Bergamot is a powerfully uplifting essential oil that can refresh your spirit and increase your mood.  If you are having negative thoughts and feel like you are feeling depressed or sad, bergamot can help clean your mind from the negative thoughts and help your mood to fight the sadness.  Bergamot is extracted from the peel of a fruit, so it has an understandably citrus smell.  The citrus smell refreshes the mind and helps put you in a better mood which will ultimately eliminate sadness.


Neroli is one of the best essential oils to relax your mind.  It is perfect with bergamot since it can follow up with a relaxing feel after ridding yourself from sadness.  It is also distilled from a flower from the bitter orange tree.  The fragrance helps soothe your mind to help it relax.  It is especially helpful to give you a better night’s sleep.  It rids your mind of anger, sadness, and the irritability of the day.

Using both of these essential oils together will help you battle sadness and depression, and it can also help you get a better night’s sleep.  A better night’s sleep will ultimately make you feel refreshed the following morning which will increase your energy.  Increased energy will boost your mood and keep you happier throughout the day.

“Aromatherapy is a caring, hands on therapy which seeks to induce relaxation, to increase energy, to reduce the effects of stress and to restore lost balance to mind, body, and soul.”
