The Perfect Essential Oil Blend To Help You Deal With Anxiety
With anxiety being a common human condition in this time of change and uncertainty, it is natural to seek out ways of coping more effectively. If you are like me, you are more likely to first try a natural or herbal alternative to see if that makes a difference.
The first thing I do is reach for the nearest orange and take a few deep breaths through my nose. The aroma of a fresh, ripe orange has the ability to bring down the anxiety levels to a point where you can make sensible decisions about the next treatment. It has something to do with the Vitamin C content, but doesn’t love the smell of an orange. It just gets the juices flowing, doesn’t it?
Next, I turn to my trusty essential oils for comfort, and here is my ‘go to’ recipe . I hope you love it as much as I do.
A blend of Bergamot, Lemon and Lavender (equal parts of each), about 5 drops of each, in an oil burner or diffuser, or simply a few drops of each on a tissue tucked up your sleeve, will help to de-stress you and your loved ones when you are feeling anxious. Simply inhale the aromas whenever you feel the need, and the blend of the three oils will work in harmony to assist in decreasing blood pressure, increasing serotonin production, and overall making you feel much calmer.
You can also pop the tissue under your pillow for a more restful sleep.
If you are concerned that anxiety is affecting your daily life, please seek a professional medical opinion.
