Transition to Spring: Bright Oils for Mood & Circulation


The transition from spring to winter can sometimes be difficult depending on where you live. Here in the Midwest, just when you think winter is over and the temps are warming up, we can be blasted with snow…Ugh!


The harsh, cold temps and the gray days can have an effect on our mood, skin, and can sometimes give us a cold chill. That’s where the power of essential oils comes in. They can help lift our mood and, when paired with an extra virgin plant oil, can help restore moisture and life to the skin. Let’s take a closer look at some of our favorites.

Orange Essential Oil

Bright, citrusy, and sweet, orange essential oil has an uplifting aroma and is great for boosting your mood. It's also great for diffusing to achieve restful sleep and deep relaxation.

Lemongrass Essential Oil

Lemongrass with its bright, spicy lemon scent is one of the best known essential oils. We love this one in the diffuser, especially paired with other citruses to help purify the air and encourage calm and relaxation.

Ginger Essential Oil

Distilled from the rhizome of the perennial Ginger herb, this essential oil has a warm, fresh and zesty aroma. It’s great paired with an extra virgin plant oil for massaging onto the abdomen when experiencing digestive issues.

To help make the seasonal transition a little easier, we’ve rounded up some simple recipes for warming the bones, increasing circulation, and uplifting our moods as we eagerly await the full swing of spring. We hope you enjoy!
