Aromatherapy for Fear and Worry with Essential Oil Recipes by Loving Essential Oils

Why Do We Feel Fear?

Whether it is the fear and worry you feel during a visit to a haunted house or the deep-rooted worry from life circumstances (fear of change, worry of death), fear has a vital function in our survival.

Fear is essentially an automatic response in our body called "fight or flight".
The fight or flight reaction is a process that begins in the limbic system.

As a result of fight or flight, the heart pumps faster, the lungs broaden, the pupils dilate, the gastrointestinal system is halted, the hormone adrenaline (or epinephrine) is produced. The body is preparing to either run away or fight.

Essential Oils and Fear

The anxiety of being afraid can be crippling. It's important to know that there are ways to manage fear using the power of essential oils. Let's have a look at the connection between essential oils and fear.

Fight or flight action begins in the amygdala, an almond-shaped set of nerve cells in the limbic system, which happens to be related to our sense of smell.

When we smell something, the olfactory nerve cells send out a signal to our limbic system. The signal travels through the olfactory nerves and bulb, directly into the amygdala (the same place that fight or flight begins).

Do you see the connection between our sense of smell and fear? This is how essential oils can help calm you when fear starts to get in the way.
