Time to Go to Your Happy Place with Essential Oils

Has anyone ever told you, “Go to your happy place”? Maybe you’re overwhelmed with the demands of your job. Maybe you walked into a room and were suddenly overcome with anxiety. Or maybe you’re staying enclosed in your bubble, feeling too uneasy to venture outside of your comfort zone. No matter what the reason, finding your “happy place” is pretty much instruction to calm your mind, slow your breathing, and intentionally focus on something that gives you genuinely positive feelings.  This can help encourage some much-needed feelings of calmness and tranquility.

For adults, practicing this type of exercise might not be easy all the time, but it’s certainly doable. But what about children? If you’re a parent and have to witness occasional feelings of anxiety from your children, honestly, it can be heartbreaking. We want them to feel confident and be brave enough to reach for the stars! And sometimes, anxiety can get the best of them (and us).

With that in mind, we wanted to create something that helps bring those warm, fuzzy feelings back so your kiddo’s biggest concern is, well, just being a kid!

Kids playing outside looking happy

Introducing: Happy Place

To evoke that “happy place” feeling, we created a beautifully soothing blend of herbal, floral, and citrus essential oils. Together, they may help ease those discouraging feelings associated with anxiety, like agitation, restlessness, poor focus, and repetitive behaviors.

And yep, it smells wonderful! Kids and adults alike will love the uplifting benefits of Bergamot, the calming properties of Lavender and Roman Chamomile, along with the balancing properties of Frankincense Carteri, Patchouli, Vetiver, and Clary Sage.

So how do you use it?

To help create an atmosphere that evokes those happy, calm feelings, diffuse it! It will fill your home with a lovely aroma, while simultaneously easing feelings that can result from anxiety. Perfect for the whole family to enjoy in the living room or wonderful in an anxious child’s bedroom. You’ll need about 30 minutes of diffusion to enjoy the benefits.

If you need Happy Place on-the-go, add 12 drops to your personal aromatherapy inhaler. This is a great way for older kids to take some control over their own mental health as well. Teach them how to use it when they notice certain emotions coming around by taking a few nice, deep breaths from the inhaler. Its small size makes it easy to take around, whether it’s the classroom (make sure to ask the teacher first!) or that nerve-wracking very first sleepover.

Happy Place can also be used topically at a 2-4% dilution. For single use, add a few drops to a teaspoon of carrier oil or lotion, and rub together on your palms. You can take a big whiff for yourself, or apply it to your child’s wrists or clavicle (collarbone area).

And don’t worry; Happy Place is also available in an ultra-convenient roll-on!

  • I mixed up some of these oils after Happy Place was released and I definitely like my version, but I don’t have all of the oils in it, so I’m sure the real Happy Place is way better! I have no idea what it really smells like, but my combo works for now.

  • I just received this oil and I was worried about the patchouli since I am not a big fan. It does come across quite nicely..not to strong but yet noticeable. I used in a inhaler and found this to be quite enjoyable. I wasn`t going to order this because of the patchouli but I am so happy I did. Thank you PT.

  • This has some of my absolute favorite oils in it and I can’t wait to try it out at some point – I wonder if I naturally gravitate towards many of the oils in this blend because of my very high levels of chronic anxiety. Very excited that it is kidsafe too because my oldest is following in his mama’s anxious footsteps unfortunately…

  • Just received this a couple days ago. We are in love with it. My daughter wears a necklace at school for anxiety symptoms. I threw it in the diffuser and my husband even commented on how chill everyone was. It’s definitely starting to become a #1 choice in our house!!!

  • I’m excited this is a kidsafe blend, and am excited to try this oil out. However, what you say the scent is like?
    This is a more expensive(to me) blend so I’m just not sure if I want to take the chance yet. Thankyou!

    1. Emily, this blend is so beautifully rounded. It’s a really lovely mix of floral and citrus, but with some more grounding notes in there, too (like Vetiver & Patchouli). And of course, if you end up not loving it you can take advantage of our great return policy! But I think you’ll love it 🙂

  • Very much looking forward to getting this blend! Love that it can help with focus and “repetitive behaviors” that come with anxiety. My son doesn’t love the scent of another focus blend (which we certainly need), so thank you for always offering new and useful products!

  • I love this coloring page!! I cannot wait to order this! I have several kiddos and I think we could use this at our house for sure!

  • Sounds wonderful. I love so many of the oils in this blend. Clary sage being a favorite for sure. I’m going to put this on my wish list

  • I can’t wait to try this blend. The description is like you made it just for my daughter! We regularly have to tell her to go to her room to calm down, and I can’t wait to put this in her diffuser for when she needs to find her “happy place.”

  • This sounds like such an amazing blend! Love that it is kidsafe because lets be honest, sometimes I need to find that happy place while surrounded by them:)

  • Love the idea of this! I’m interested to see what it smells like! Thanks for putting something together like this!

  • I can’t wait to get this one. I have been looking into trying some new blends for my own anxiety and this being kidsafe is a huge plus!

  • Is there a cheat sheet for this blend (if that exists)? I REALLY want to buy this, but the price is just too high for me. I have all the single EO’s in my cart to buy next week to make other blends with, so maybe I can find a cheat sheet online somewhere with a copy blend of this!
    I’d love to see a 5ml bottle of this too, especially given the price!

  • I’m so excited to give this a try! My kiddos enter the twilight zone right at 6pm with lots of big emotions, and we’ve been trying so many different blends to help them chill out… this might just be it! *Fingers crossed*

  • These are all my “happy place” oils. I have been using them in some combination or another since I started using essential oils. I think this will make a perfect blend!

  • With daddy gone on a deployment, this is exactly what my little ones need. Their anxiety is through the roof, trying to adjust not having daddy home with us. Definitely going to order this to help comfort them!

    1. Christina, we truly hope it can offer some help to your children, and to you as well! Being a military wife/mom is incredibly challenging and we thank both you and your husband for your service to our country 🙂

    2. Well this just convinced me to get “happy place”! We have a deployment coming up later this year, and I know we will all need every support we can get! Good luck in the remainder of your husbands deployment.

  • I cannot wait to try this one!! Also, I love the coloring sheet! I’m almost as excited about it as the oil. Lol.

  • This looks interesting. And I love the name!!! It would be nice if Plant Therapy would come out with some scratch-n-sniff type cards like they did around Christmas for their new scents. I know some people love the stickers, but I would opt for sample cards with new scents if given a choice.

  • Bergamot is definitely my happy oil, I can see why it’s the first ingredient! I wonder how strong the patchouli is in this blend.
