LET’S TALK ABOUT THE BEST ESSENTIAL OILS FOR STRESS AND ANXIOUS FEELINGS, AND HOW THEY WORK TO EFFECT THE MOOD.
Do you struggle with stress and anxious feelings, or should I ask if you have kids or a job? I think these go hand in hand! Life can get stressful and cause us to have anxious feelings. Slowing life down is easier said than done. There is always something going on, coming up, or a problem to deal with.
Essential oils can be a very effective natural approach at managing stress and anxious feelings. They can support the brain by reprograming the stress response on a chemical level and effect the mood positively.
I am going to share my favorite essential oils to use in a stressful situation, how to use them, and the ultimate stress and anxiety roller bottle recipe.
Lime is a very uplifting essential oil that lets off a fresh, clean, citrus aroma. It can help affect the mood positively and help you to feel more motivated.
Bergamot is very calming yet energizing making it very effective for stress. It has a mild, lovely citrus smell and is one of my personal favorites! Bergamot can be very helpful at soothing anxious feelings and help you to let go of things that are causing the stress.
Similar to lime, lemon is very uplifting and invigorating. Studies have shown that when people use lemon essential oil it can improve mood, help you to stay on task, and reduce stress.
Lavender is a very calming essential oil and can be used to promote feelings of relaxation, especially in a stressful situation. Just by inhaling lavender it can lower blood pressure, heart rate, and put the body in a relaxed state.
Copaiba is a newer essential oil to me, but quickly made it into my daily routine. It is amazing at calming the nervous system and reducing anxious feelings. It comes from the resin of a copaiba tree and has a mild yet spicy woodies aroma.
The next three essential oils I am going to mention are blends made by DoTERRA. I usually like to keep the blog not specific to DoTERRA so those who use other essential oils can follow along and benefit from my posts. However, for this specific post I had to mention these 3 blends because they are so incredibly effective for stress and anxious feelings and are the oils I use most often for this aliment.
Serenity is DoTERRA’s restful blend. It is a blend of lavender, marjoram, roman chamomile, ylang ylang, Hawaiian sandalwood, and vanilla Bean. This one does exactly what it is named after and helps the body to enter into a state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled.
This blend is perfect for nighttime when you are trying to turn the brain off before going to sleep, especially on nights when you are feeling extra anxious.
Balance is DoTERRA’s grounding blend. It is a blend of spruce, ho wood, frankincense, blue tansy, and blue chamomile. I like to call this blend my “I have 4 kids 5 and under.” It is one that I use almost daily and it has such a beautiful scent. It promotes tranquility while balancing and grounding the emotions.
Citrus bliss is DoTERRA’s invigorating blend. It is a blend of wild orange, lemon, grapefruit, mandarin, bergamot, tangerine, clementine, and vanilla. It is a perfect blend of citrus essential oils and can be used to uplift the mood. Citrus bliss can also be used to promote energy and help you to stay focused.
Several citrus essential oils make this list and that is because citrus oils help cells return to their normal state and interrupt unhealthy stress responses.
