Feeling discouraged is a normal part of life. We encounter setbacks and disappointments regularly and this can cause a loss of confidence and enthusiasm. Discouragement can also come from a fear of failure, not having a plan to reach goals, or negative self-talk. It is okay to feel discouraged but staying that way can often stop us from accomplishing the things that are important to us.

Use doTERRA to help lift yourself out of discouragement!

How to get rid of discouragement

To counter negative self-talk, try using grounding oils like Sandalwood and doTERRA Balance. Apply to your wrists and neck, bottom of feet, or diffuse to help you keep perspective, and encourage a soothing, tranquil environment.

Sadness is often at the root of discouragement. Citrus and mint essential oils can be very beneficial for helping elevate sad feelings. Citrus oils such as Lemon, Wild Orange, Lime, and Grapefruit are high in limonene, a chemical compound known for their uplifting characteristics. These oils contain other compounds that are useful in creating a positive environment. Pick your favorite citrus oil and diffuse it, or put a couple drops in a glass of water to enjoy its benefits. Diffuse Citrus Bliss in the morning to give the mood-enhancing benefits of citrus essential oils when you get up.

Mint essential oils like Peppermint and Spearmint help enliven the senses and give an energizing effect. You can also use doTERRA Motivate®, a blend of citrus and mint essential oils, to help you regain confidence in yourself and your goals.
