Anxiety is a mental health disorder that plagues millions of individuals in the world every single day, and if you're unlucky enough to be included in that number, then you're likely to welcome any break from the terrible feelings you may feel so often. Essential oils are here to save the day. Put only a few drops in an Organic Aromas essential oil diffuser, and almost instantly you will begin to feel your mind ease and your mental health restored.
Lavender is first on our list, due to its scent and calming effects. Because of this, this essential oil is considered a nervous system restorative, and is helpful in maintaining inner peace, a healthy sleep pattern, and alleviating symptoms of anxiety, such as:
- Panic and anxiety attacks
- Nervous tension
- Upset stomach
Rose is an essential oil which is known to have very settling effects on the heart in terms of emotional balance, and this makes it very helpful in alleviating the symptoms of both anxiety and depression, and also helps with panic attacks, grief, and shock.
Because chamomile has an extremely peaceful and calming scent, it is one essential oil which is popular for improving inner harmony by decreasing:
- Overthinking due to stress
These can be used in the bath as well as paired with one of our essential oil diffusers to help alleviate the symptoms of anxiety, but be wary: There is a small risk of allergic reaction in those who have a specific allergy, so be sure to do a patch test before using it in the bath.
Rose Geranium is an essential oil which contains citronellol and geraniol to help improve your mood and health, and this can work wonders when you're having feelings of anxiety. It works best when absorbed through the skin and affecting the limbic system, the center for emotional control in your brain. In addition to this affect, it also affects your nervous system to lower an elevated heart rate, lower blood pressure, and to control your breathing and overall stress level.
If you're living with anxiety and looking to balance your mind, body, and spirit to help alleviate your symptoms, our signature Serenity blend is the essential oil for you. Each ingredient has its own therapeutic effect, and combined they help to lift tensions and spirits to help relax your mind and body. Therapeutic effects included are:
- Sedation or relaxation
This essential oil is known for its calming and uplifting effects, and because of this, it's a great choice if you need something to help alleviate your symptoms of anxiety and depression. It can help to reduce heart agitation and nervous palpitations, as well as working as a moderately strong sedative for those suffering from insomnia brought on by anxiety. Alongside this, its uplifting properties work to promote cheerfulness, courage, and optimism to fight through those anxious thoughts.
Bergamot essential oil is an ingredient which can commonly be found added in small amounts to Earl Grey tea, as it has a distinct, but not overpowering fruity taste, and its aroma is very appealing. Rather than soothing the heart, like our other picks, this essential oil works to alleviate symptoms of anxiety by providing positive energy, while at the same time also being helpful for those with insomnia by inducing relaxation.
