How to Use Essential Oils to Help Ease Anxiety

The strong, attracting aroma from herbs and flowering plants helps stimulate the receptors from the person’s nose and sends a message to the nervous system that tells the mind and the body to relax.

Smelling numerous types of extracts from flowers and plants for therapeutic benefits is practiced in the process of aromatherapy. Anxiety relief can be experienced by using certain essential oils that have a soothing and calming effect.

Use aromatherapy oils for their natural healing and therapeutic properties. Essential Oils are unlike other medicines, which are manufactured and synthetically made from substances that lost its natural properties and are replaced with highly processed compounds.

Ways to Use Essential Oils for Anxiety

If you are new to essential oils, it is really important to always make sure to use 100% pure essential oils for inhaling or applying to your skin. The essential oil market is not regulated which can bring the chance of adulterated oils with synthetic ingredients.

Essential oils can be used through inhalation by a variety of methods, here are a few ways:

  • Inhale directly from the bottle
  • Drops on a cotton ball or tissue
  • Through diffuser jewelry
  • Aromatherapy diffuser machine
  • Essential oil inhaler
  • Aromatherapy bath (this one offers both topical and inhalation benefits)

Personal inhalers are a popular way to use aromatherapy anytime and anywhere you need it to help reduce anxiety. 

Diffusing Essential Oils for Anxiety Relief

Diffusing essential oils is a natural way to help improve levels of anxiety through inhaling aromatic oils.

A few drops of essential oils can be inhaled by using aromatherapy diffusers. The diffuser machine can help to disperse the essential oil aromas into the air. Inhale the scent that is diffused gives the signal to your smell receptors to relax and calm down.

Diffusing sweet and soothing oils can bring a sedating effect to help you sleep easily when anxiety troubles your ability to calm down and rest. Through the use of diffusing essential oils, reducing levels of stress or anxiety is possible. 

Frankincense essential oil is one of the popular oil for nervous feelings. Its earthy-sweet aroma will help ease the feeling of anxiety and tension. Dilute a few drops of frankincense oil in a carrier oil then massage it to your feet and hands for a relaxation. Here are more essential oils that are perfect for calming nervousness and anxiety.
