Feeling Anxious? Relieve Anxiety with Aromatherapy
Stressed at work? School? Finances? Perhaps you’re feeling anxious about a personal relationship or an emotional trauma. There are many situations in life that can cause us to feel anxious. Aromatherapy can benefit us immensely by helping us cope with day to day stressors. In this post we will show you how you can utilize one of our most popular blends, plus a breathing exercise to help you relieve anxiety.
Anxiety Eternity Blend: A synergistic blend of Bergamot, Frankincense, Lavender and Ylang Ylang. There are many studies on how these ingredients can help us when our emotional state is compromised, such as during prolonged periods of stress.
A study conducted in Taiwan in 2011 provided powerful evidence on how Aromatherapy can help manage anxiety. The authors selected elementary school teachers, who are known to constantly work under significant stress, and used an inhalation of bergamot C. aurantiumvar.bergamia essential oil as the method of administration; they focused on the physiological stress signals that are easy to record and straightforward to interpret. They found that even a 10-minute-long weekly inhalation of aromatherapy resulted in a significant reduction of blood pressure and heart rate, and drove autonomic nervous activity toward a balanced state. In addition, participants with moderate and high degrees of anxiety benefited more than the light anxiety group.[x]
Inhalation of certain essential oils such as Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Bergamot can be considered an effective nursing intervention that reduces psychological stress responses and serum cortisol levels, as well as the blood pressure of clients with essential hypertension. (y)
Take a deep breath and reconnect with yourself by using an aromatic blend that will lift your senses and bring that feeling of calm. Sometimes just taking a pause for a moment can help us focus and reconnect, therefore we become more productive.
