** Please note… Joy essential oil blend contains orange and bergamot essential oils, which are oils known to be photosensitive. This means you could develop a rash in any area the oil was directly applied to your skin and then exposed to direct sunlight. Please do not use on your skin in any place where it will be exposed to sunlight within 12 hours to avoid a sunburn-like rash.
My personal experience with Joy Essential Oil Blend:
Joy was one of those oils I didn't care much for at the beginning. It was too strong smelling for me when I opened the cap, and ended up being one of those oils pushed to the back of my stash for several months. Then one day, I was feeling particularly off, I felt compelled to give it another try in the diffuser, adding a drop of lemon essential oil to go with it (because… well… lemon makes everything better when I'm not totally in love with a blend).
I was 5 months postpartum, and feeling incredibly worthless and overwhelmed with transitioning through being a first time mom, recently recovered after 8 years of intense medical distress. Diffusing Joy helped me move forward with a much brighter outlook on life, laughing more, stressing less, and overall feeling renewed. Something changed during that week too… suddenly I went from wanting nothing to do with Joy to loving it.
Fast forward a few years later… Joy was instrumental in my ability to cope with my husband's military deployment. My using Joy also helped our son find more happiness as well while his Daddy was gone.
Since then… Joy essential oil blend has earned a permanent space in our oil collection.
Personally, I LOVE diffusing the Joy essential oil blend with Abundance Essential Oil Blend. Sometimes I'll add 2-3 drops of each into the diffuser. Other times I'll add a drop of each into my diffusing necklace. I highly recommend it!
Frequently Asked Questions about Joy Essential Oil Blend:
Is Joy Essential Oil safe to use during pregnancy?
While many people have used Joy essential oil blend with wonderful results (including me) during pregnancy, we must use the standard disclaimer line:
If pregnant or nursing, please consult a pharmacist, aromatherapist, or other health professional prior to using.
Can I use Joy Essential Oil Blend while taking medication?
I have an entire post dedicated to essential oil and medication contraindications that I would like to refer you to. In that post, I have a list of medication types, and under that medication type is a list of oils that we highly recommend avoiding or limiting.
Please consult with your pharmacist prior to using essential oils when you're taking medication.
Is Joy Essential Oil safe for dogs?
Generally yes… Joy essential oil is safe for dogs.
As with my typical disclaimer with pets… if you're diffusing, please make sure your room is well ventilated, and your pet has access to leave the room and enter a different room where no diffuser is running. Animals know when they've had enough, and need the ability to leave the room if the oil becomes too much for them.
Turn off your diffuser, open some windows, and take your dog outside if your dog begins excessively drooling, looks confused, acts weird, seems more lethargic than normal, or if something is just not quite right.
Is Joy Essential Oil Blend safe for cats?
Joy contains citrus oils, which cats have difficult time processing. If you're going to diffuse, please allow your cat the ability to leave the room to go somewhere where there is no diffuser running. And the room you diffuse in is well ventilated so the oils don't become too strong.
What should you mix Joy essential oil with?
While Joy essential oil blend was specifically created to invoke a sense of happiness, and I typically don't recommend blending blends with anything else, I love to add a drop of lemon to my Joy essential oil blend in the diffuser.
I've also mixed Joy essential oil blend with Clarity essential oil blend, and with Abundance essential oil blend, and both cases worked out wonderfully too.

Where to find Joy Essential Oil Blend
Joy essential oil blend is an exclusive, pre-made essential oil blend that is exclusive to Young Living. We love purchasing from Young Living because of their dedication to quality and Seed To Seal Guarantee. Plus it is a refreshing breath of fresh air to purchase from a company that willingly invites you to the farms where the plant matter that creates the oil is created, distilled, and bottled.
We LOVE their farm-to-table approach to growing, distilling, bottling, and delivering your oils, delivered right to your door!
WARNING: DO NOT PURCHASE JOY ON AMAZON
Buying on Amazon is super convenient, and sometimes fun. We do it all the time (easily several times a month), and on this website we do make a small commission promoting products sold on Amazon… so please don't take this as a knock on the online retailer that changed the entire global online (and arguably offline) marketplace. We do love them in more ways than one.
However… this is a HUGE BUYER BEWARE moment that can't go unspoken. Young Living (and many reputable brands) DO NOT SELL their oils on Amazon. The problem with buying oils on Amazon (even if the seller appears to be Young Living, or whatever other brand you may be looking at) is that anyone can make an account and sell anything, labeled as whatever they want.
numerous countless people complain to us about how their Young Living oils bought on Amazon did not meet the quality standards as Young Living claims to provide. They complained about weird smells, skin rashes, and even sometimes the wrong color. Young Living will not guarantee any oil purchased on Amazon because there are fraudulent sellers on Amazon selling “essential oils” using Young Living's bottle labels. If you see an oil on Amazon, eBay, or any other 3rd party seller website, know those oils are not legally being sold. That is 100% against Young Living's policies and procedures, and the quality or truth of those oils cannot be guaranteed. Many people have been buying Young Living oils, and then diluting the contents or replacing the contents with cheaper oils, then recapping them to sell.
Make sure you're getting the REAL STUFF…
You work hard for your money… and we don't want to see you waste it on fraudulent or fake oils. Make sure you're getting the real deal by purchasing straight from Young Living's website.
