Uplifting Essential Oils

We all want that signature scent that people know us by, whether you’re a lover of florals or a French vanilla kind of folk.

Earlier this year we delivered some bad news, though: most perfumes have ingredients not listed on the label, many of which are harmful to your health. You can read about that here.

What's Your Skin Score Quiz

Now we move on to the good news, which is that essential oils are a natural way to smell amazing.

And they can do more than just that. Many essential oils have aromatherapeutic benefits that can uplift your mood and mindset, making them a beautiful and powerful way to shape how you show up in the world everyday.

There are several scientific studies that support this, though traditional cultures have known of these benefits for centuries.

We kept all of this in mind when creating Vibrance, our first essential oil blend, which will be available in full size in September. We wanted the aromatherapy of Vibrance to be uplifting and calming at the same time. And, of course, it needed to smell amazing—to you and your skin.

Here is a list of 5 of the skin-nourishing essential oils that made it happen:

Lavender Essential Oil

We knew we wanted to include lavender in Vibrance because of its amazing, gentle benefits. Lavender promotes a peace of mind, and if you don’t need more of this in your life, I want to know your secret!

There are tons of ways to use the herb—in a tea, in your bathtub, even as a supplement. When lavender is in season, we include a sachet of lavender in each of our orders, which many of you have told us you love receiving.

Our resident herbalist, Aubrey, wrote a great article about the myths about lavender and the real benefits it provides.

Jasmine Grandiflorum Essential Oil

If lavender is the friend that gives you a comforting hug after a long day, jasmine is the friend who convinces you to dance with that cutie at the bar.

In other words, jasmine heightens passion. Think spring fever.

In creating Vibrance, we were imagining something that would ground you and help you feel at ease, while also sparking your spirit and getting you excited about each day. Jasmine brings a passionate energy to this blend.

Bergamot Essential Oil


Aromatherapists have long been using bergamot to help create a feeling of positivity. In Vibrance, it balances out the florals with its clean citrus scent.

Ruby Grapefruit Essential Oil

Grapefruit essential oil is a great addition to cleaning solutions. In skin care it’s helpful for oily skin formulations.

As far as its aromatherapy, grapefruit is said to calm emotions. It’s an enlivening scent that helps wake you up. Think half a grapefruit for breakfast.

We love what it does in an essential oil blend. It mixes really well with other scents while adding its own distinct component.

Lemon Verbena Essential Oil

With a scent so subtle that it’s hard to reproduce synthetically, lemon verbena essential oil has special qualities. This magical oil is said to provide uplifting clarity while also calming and boosting sensuality. This makes it a great essential oil to diffuse throughout your room at night to promote love, restful sleep, and maybe even some vivid dreams.

Try Vibrance or DIY

You’ll be able to get Vibrance this September!

We also encourage you to make your own essential oil blend! We love Mountain Rose Herbs’ selection and quality of oils. You can play around and find a blend that you absolutely love. New to essential oils? Here’s an article from Wellness Mama to help you get started on creating your blend.

    I can’t wait to get my order with the sample to try. Sounds amazing! I love essential oils.

  2. amg says:

    This sounds very promising. I’ll have to place an order asap. Now the only problem is choosing what I would like to try next…the new scent free oil, perhaps, just for balance ;-)?

  3. Mary says:

    Just received my sample of Vibrance- Oh my it smells like something I have been waiting for for a long time and just didn’t know it. Don’t take this the wrong way, but I can’t stop my dog from licking my wrist where I tried my first little sample! I guess she knows “:the good stuff” when she smells it! Can’t wait to place my order for a full size in September. This is an amazing scent!

  4. Dee says:

    Sounds lovely, thank you! I personally dislike the scent of both rose and geranium, so I am not sure if this scent is for me. Are there any plans to expand to other essential oil blends? I love the scent of the acne prone/oily skin product, would love an essential oil blend of this scent! 🙂

  5. Rachel F. says:

    There are many reputable resources for essential oils. Young Living, DoTerra, etc do not have the market cornered on “the best essential oils”. They are MLM companies and do what they do best — product positioning and marketing. Please don’t be mislead into believing they are the best simply because of price, slick marketing, etc. They do offer good products but they are not the end all be all. In fact these companies have been warned about their product claims, usage suggestions, etc. For example internal usage is not recommended unless under the supervision of an aromatherapist. Using oils “neat” (without dilution) can also lead to skin irritation. Any sales person who is suggesting internal or “neat” usage is ok is not current on the product recommendations. “Therapeutic grade” is a marketing term and is not a regulated term.

    There are many wonderful, quality essential oil companies out there. Just as there are companies who offer synthetic. Ask to see the GC/MS report, GC=Gas Chromatography , MS = Mass Spectrometry, and do some homework.

    This is for Rachel F: Rachel which brands do you use? I have recently tried ananda apothecary with good success. But I’m always looking for alternative brands. Your suggestions would be of great service to us all since you are aware of the various tests for purity.

  7. Thanks for the awesome post, really such an amazing information. I personally use the natural lavender oil on my skin, it gives proper relaxation or transform my mood completely as you have described in your post.
