Alternative Antidepressant - Natural, Safer, No Side Effects

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are liquids that come from plants. 

Essential oils are made of the plant's defensive system, for example, the immune system. 

When we use essential oils in our bodies, we are using the plant's defensive system as an alternative to our own. 

This is why essential oils work! 

There are a total of NINETEEN essential oils you can use as an antidepressant. Some will work better than others for different people for treating depression. This article explains the top recommended essential oils that treat depression. 

What is depression? 
Depression is a disorder that brings sadness, energy loss, negative thoughts, weight gain or loss, insomnia, and loss of interest in activities a person normally enjoys. Depression can go on for weeks, months, or years if not treated. 

Here are the top 5 essential oils that will treat depression. 

1. LEMON: 

Lemon essential oil is the number one essential oil recommended for treating depression. 

12 depression patients were exposed to the aroma of lemon essential oil. They found that by exposing the patients to this aroma, actually decreased the need of doses of antidepressants, it normalizes neuroendocrine hormone levels, and normalizes immune function. 


Frankincense is one of the strongest and most powerful essential oils. 

It's so powerful that an extract of Frankincense was found to make apoptosis in human leukemia cells. As an antidepressant, it has the ability to regulate emotions. 

Watch the Frankincense Testimony on Dream doTERRA's Website. 


Lavender essential oil is a popular one too! Most people use it to relieve stress, insomnia, and feel calm/peaceful. 

Students suffering from depression and insomnia, found to sleep much better and keep depression levels low during the weeks they used Lavender compared to the weeks they didn't. 


Elevation is an essential oil blend by doTERRA Essential Oils. Elevation was blended to act as a "Joyful" blend. 

This specific mixture of essential oils makes an aroma that raises a person's energy level, and stimulates the body when they feel sad/depressed. 

This blend is made of up eight essential oils including Lavender, Melissa, and Ylang Ylang essential oils. Which makes the perfect combination for treating depression. 


Balance is another blend by doTERRA. Compared to Elevation essential oil, Balance brings the feeling of calmness, peace, and/or relaxation. It literally brings...Balance! To every part of your body. Physical and emotional. 

The video below is a "before and after" result of the exposure to Balance by just adding one drop of the essential oil to a patient's feet. 

Balance is made up of four doTERRA essential oils including Rosewood, Blue Tansy, and Frankincense.

How to Intake Essential Oils: 

There are three ways doTERRA suggests essential oils should be taken. Aromatically, Topically, and Internally. 

Aromatically is when essential oils are put in a diffuser and releasing the essential oils into the air. Topically is when the essential oils are put right on contact with the skin. Internally is when essential oils are put in a capsule and taken with water.

For depression, it is most recommended to diffuse the essential oils into the air. Don't have a diffuser? Thats okay, Just add a few drops of any of the essential oils recommended to treat depression onto the palms of your hands and rub them together. Put your hands up to your nose and inhale the aroma for treatment.

Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade: 

Whenever you are treating any kind of ailment with essential oils, just remember one thing! You want to make sure you are using Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils. 

Which means you are using 100% Pure, Safe, and High Quality essential oils are that guaranteed to work. Essential oils that are not Certified with CPTG, could have been tampered with other chemicals which makes the oils less strong and could be crucial to your health.

Essential Oils have been proven to work with different health issues, thousands of times. Expose your body to the aroma of doTERRA Essential Oils and enjoy a high quality way of living and a spectacular health experience.
