Aromatherapy is a natural way of treating health and emotional issues by means of essential oils which are scents extracted from plants. Each scent, each plant has unique properties that helps one overcome or alleviate their suffering. It may it be physical, emotional or psychological.



Essential oils are a natural, proven way to help reduce the symptoms of anxiety and restore a healthy balance. Used alongside other treatments, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, they can restore calm and enhance mood, without giving off any side effects. This makes essential oils a long-term solution for those with anxiety.

An increased heart rate and blood pressure are common signs of anxiety and by using essential oils for no longer than an hour, researchers found these symptoms to reduce. However, when exposure to essential oils lasts longer than an hour, scientists believe the beneficial effects are reversed.

7 Essential Oils for Anxiety, Depression & Attention Disorders

Bergamot
The actual bergamot oil is obtained from the rind of unripe citrus fruit from a bitter orange tree.  It can induce a state of relaxation and calmness. Many individuals find this scent refreshing with elements of fruitiness. This specific scent tends to be very helpful at restoring the hypothalamus to a state of homeostasis and calmness. If you are feeling a lot of stress and anxiety, this aroma may provide you with some major relief.

Sandalwood
Sandalwood has a sweet, woodsy, outdoors type scent and can be very beneficial in reducing anxiety. It was found to reduce overall anxiety in these patients. Additionally some have said that it works great to help with insomnia as well as improve overall quality of sleep. This fragrance comes from an evergreen tree and the oil that is used in massage therapy is extracted from the heartwood.

Frankincense
Frankincense is a sedative essential oil and can be used to relax anxiety sufferers. It helps to promote deep breathing and can reduce blood pressure, thereby restoring a calm to the body. Prior to a potentially stressful situation or when feelings of anxiety build up, use frankincense in a burner or vaporiser. Breathe deeply and relax.

Lavender
Lavender essential oil has anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant and stress reducing properties. It helps treat anxiety, insomnia and heart palpitations, reduces the intensity of migraines, decreases high blood pressure, improves breathing and stimulates memory. You can benefit from the effects of this essential oil by using a vaporizer or a diffuser. Use this oil two hours before bedtime to fight insomnia.

Chamomile

If you’re a fan of the calming Chamomile tea, then you would love this too! This oil has been around for 2000 years and helps relieve a person from vomiting, insomnia, restlessness or ADD. It also effectively reduces stress and muscle tension.

Peppermint
Peppermint is an energizer and can be used to stimulate the mind and calm nerves at the same time. Best used in the morning, peppermint oil can be inhaled directly, diffused in a room, used as a massage oil, sprayed in the air or even placed in a bath.

Lemon Balm
While lemon oil may be among the more expensive oils, it is also one of the most studied and more effective oils. It has been shown to help calm and relax people who are dealing with anxiety and insomnia, improve memory and ease indigestion. Lemon oil can be dropped into a bath, inhaled directly, diffused, sprayed or applied directly to the skin as a massage oil.
