We all have stress in our daily lives. Handling our family, children, our life and our job can put pressure on us. Aromatherapy is one of the best solutions to treat stress and anxiety. This wonderful technique makes use of essential oils to boost the mood and enhance energy levels to fight stress. Essential oils excite the sense of smell and stimulate the part of the brain that is related to feelings of love, relaxation and calmness.
For stress relief, try a Calming Diffusing Blend of 3 drops each of Lavender, Geranium, and Roman Chamomile, plus 2 drops each of Clary Sage and Ylang Ylang essential oils.
Or try out an essential oil blend of 4 drops Lavender, 3 drops Clary Sage, 2 drops Ylang Ylang, and 1 drop Marjoram in your diffuser.
You can use essential oils during bathing. Just add a few drops of oil to the water in your bath tub and enjoy the refreshing and relaxing experience. Massage with essential oils helps to combat stress and fight fatigue. It relaxes the body and provides relief from aching muscles and body pain. You can inhale the oils by vaporizing them. Fill an aromatherapy diffuser or vaporizer with water and add a few drops of essential oils or just add a few drops of aromatherapy oil to boiling water. There are many ways to use essential oils, but NEVER take them orally. Lavender, sage, chamomile, sandalwood and eucalyptus are a few of the most popular scents.
During the spring and summer months, try diffusing 2 drops each of Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint essential oils to maintain clear breathing and a healthy immune response.
To strengthen respiratory function during cold and flu season, blend 1 drop each of Lemon, Lime, Peppermint, Rosemary, and Eucalyptus essential oils.
