Four Essential Oils For Relieving Stress
Essential oils can be used alone or in combination with one another to help with inducing calm and peace, and to help with reducing the stress response. Here are four go-to essential oils for stress management.
Lavender is well known for its calming effect on the body and mind. It is commonly used by many people to help lessen anxiety, improve sleep and generally create a calm, peaceful atmosphere. Use Lavender Essential Oil for anxiety by adding a couple of drops onto a tissue and inhale as needed if feeling overwhelmed. Likewise, if sleep is an issue for you, a couple of drops under the pillow at night may help quieten a racing mind and calm the soul.
2. Ylang Ylang
Ylang Ylang has sedative qualities and therefore blends beautifully with Lavender to aid sleep. Two drops of each in a diffuser to help with insomnia. It can help to settle nerves in times of stress and panic.
Frankincense has been used over the centuries for many reasons, including religious purposes and for its healing properties. Frankincense is a powerful oil and helps to reduce the stress response. It helps with anxiety but also helps alleviate depression.
Due to its anti-inflammatory effect, Frankincense can also help people with asthma or breathing congestion due to anxiety. Also good to aid in wound healing and immunity which as we know can be compromised if stressed.
This is an Australian Native, commonly known as Lavender Tea Tree, that has the powerful benefits of both these popular essential oils.
Rosalina Essential Oil has a feminine floral aroma and helps to quieten the mind – therapeutically combining the sedative effect of Lavender and the antibacterial, antiviral effects of Eucalyptus.
