As festive as the holiday season can be, it can also bring about many feelings of stress and sadness. Perhaps you’re overwhelmed with the things that you need to get done before your family arrives on Christmas morning? Or you’re burdened financially, hopelessly trying to determine how you will purchase gifts for your loved ones? Maybe you’re depressed about loved ones that you’ve lost and will not be able to see this holiday season?
At Organic Aromas, we believe that everyone should enjoy a relaxing and joyous holiday season. That’s why we provide therapeutic-grade essential oils to our customers. If you have never used therapeutic-grade essential oils, you may be shocked to find that they offer numerous health benefits to users. This article will outline how our essential oils can help you ease holiday stress and sadness.
If you find yourself particularly stressed during this holiday season, consider adding Bergamot oil to your diffuser. This oil is known to help energize the body and improve moods. It also provides a very refreshing scent, which could help you relax when in your home or car. Although you could use bergamot oil on its own, it is most potent when mixed with other essential oils. Consider incorporating it with some of the other oils you’ll find below.
Lemon is one of nature’s most useful fruits, so it should come as no surprise that Lemon oil is helpful as a stress reliever. This oil helps promote focus, allowing you to relax and concentrate on the particular task at hand. It also serves as an excellent deodorant and freshener. It should be considered a must-add to any blend that you use in your home this holiday season.
If you find that lemon is a useful oil, you may want to consider trying its other citrus counterpart, Sweet Orange oil. Many users find that this oil helps alleviate depression and stress. Like Lemon oil, our Sweet Orange oil provides an uplifting aroma. If you’re looking to use Sweet Orange oil as an anti-depressant, we recommend adding it to an aromatherapy diffuser. You could also use it as a topical lotion or mist to help treat depression.
When it comes to curing depression and getting rid of your feelings of sadness, there is perhaps no better option than Ylang-Ylang. This essential oil is an antidepressant that provides a sedative and euphoric effect.
Many who use the oil say that it helps them relieve anxiety and tension, making it an excellent addition to your essential oil blends this holiday season. We recommend using it in a diffuser to help boost morale. You could also use it as a topical solution to stimulate the nervous system directly.
Another essential oil that can help improve your mood and reduce feelings of sadness is Lavender. This oil is well-known to help reduce anxiety and mental stress. Lavender essential oil can eliminate nervous tension while also improving blood circulation. The oil can also aid the immune system, which could prevent you from getting sick during the holidays. Consider adding it to your bath or shower, or in a diffuser by your bed when sleeping at night.
Another excellent ingredient to help calm the nervous system is Chamomile. You’ll find this in our Jubilation Blend. This blend is a relaxant that could also help with insomnia, which plagues many during the holidays. Our Jubilation blend also contains petitgrain, which is known for its anti-depressive properties. This is an excellent option to put in the various diffusers throughout your house.
One last blend that you could consider adding to your holiday mix is our Morning Bloom Blend. As the name may indicate, this oil is particularly useful when it comes to stimulating and awakening your senses. This oil contains many ingredients that are effective in fighting stress and depression, such as Sweet Orange and Ylang-Ylang. If you’re feeling the pressure of the holiday season, this should be one of your go-to essential oils.
In addition to purchasing one of the blends on our website, you could also make your own combination. Consider adding a few drops of the various oils we’ve listed above. Keep experimenting until you find a mixture that smells fantastic and also helps boost your mood. When you do, feel free to share it with our other readers in the comment section below. Together, we can have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday season this winter!
