The Wonderful Feeling of Contentment

by Penny Keay

Contentment is such a wonderful feeling. And when you are content, typically you are happy.

Being content and being happy are two emotions that go hand in hand. When you are content and happy, you will feel healthy, have a healthy attitude and have a healthy glow too.

To most of us we feel the happiest when we have a sense of contentment inside. We are at peace, with ourselves, with those around us and maybe even the world. When the outside pressures can be left aside you can have a certain "snuggly and warm" feeling deep within your being.

Happiness to us doesn't have to be all jolly and laughing - you know 'let the good times roll' feeling. It doesn't even involve laughing, although it might make you smile.

In fact, for many of us, we need to think about what true happiness is just for ourself.

Happiness is a very personal state.

Truly happy people have a special aura around them that often times will attract others to them. Being content again, is a personal thing. Being satisfied with the way life has been for you and what it is to become, will play a part of what makes you happy. Again, people who are content with themselves will again attract others.

Essential oils cannot bring happiness or contentment.

What?? But what they can do is help you to clear your thought processes and sort out the things that really do matter in life.

Using essential oils will definitely bring your spirits up and be uplifting emotionally. Using them around others will often times produce the same affects.

There are essential oils that will make you feel less anxious and relieve stress. There are others that will almost produce a euphoric emotion.

Ylang ylang is known to cause an almost happy - giddy feeling.

These will lead you to those feelings of contentment.

Good oils to help with happiness and contentment include:

Orange, Rose Otto, Coriander, Clove bud, Jasmine , Ginger , Cinnamon , Geranium, Geranium and Rose blend, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Cypress, Neroli, Patchouli and Roman Chamomile

Try this Happiness blend:

Orange - 19 drops
Geranium and Rose blend - 5 drops
Clove bud - 1 drop
Cinnamon - 1 drop

Blend all and diffuse in your favorite diffuser. You can also add 5 drops to a bath.

Try this Contentment blend:

Bergamot - 10 drops
Clove bud - 5 drops
Sandalwood - 10 drops
Ylang Ylang - 5 drops.

Mix together and diffuse.

This blend can be used to settle restlessness too.

Let us know how these blends work for you or if you have others you use, please share.

For a premixed blend you can try our Elation blend or Inspiration blend.

A rule of thumb though in aromatherapy, any essential oil that makes you feel good or happy, those are the ones to use!!

And from a Personal note - Start each day with a Smile on your Face. And whenever you think about it - just Smile. It will give you a warm fuzzy feeling inside.
