Did you know that stress can have many harmful effects on your health? Not only can stress weaken the immune system, but it can also be dangerous on the heart and cause painful tension in the muscles along with headaches. While there are many different ways to deal with stress, essential oils can be an easy, natural remedy. Let’s take a closer look at the best essential oils for stress.
Best Essential Oils for Stress
Lavender has many wonderful properties. However, one of the most common uses for lavender is relaxation. Lavender not only reduces stress but relaxes tense muscles. It can be used in a diffuser or mixed into homemade beauty products.
Long used as an ingredient in tea, chamomile is wonderful for calming the nerves and reducing stress. It not only relaxes the brain but also the nervous system, helping you cope with life’s everyday stressors. Use it topically or in a diffuser.
Ylang Ylang is another great oil for reducing stress. What’s great about this oil is its ability to help you “diffuse” feeling of anger and frustration. If your stress is caused by situations that lead to these feelings, this is a great oil to try.
Marjoram is another unique oil in that it not only relieves stress but can relieve the stress caused by grief and emotional pain. It can also help reduce negative thoughts. Those experiencing grief can bring peaceful feelings into their lives by diffusing this oil.
Sometimes a blend of essential oils will give you a powerful boost to beat what ails you. A great example is the Tranquility blend. This blend contains Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, Lime, German/ Roman Chamomile mix, Ylang Ylang, Lavender, & Citronella. The blend is wonderful for beating stress. It calms and soothes a stressed body and mind, inspires patience and calming, calms the worried mind, and even helps you stop bad habits.
