Stress Reducing Essential Oils

Posted by on

Feeling stressed out? Emotionally distressed? Can’t seem to relax your anxious mind? You are not alone. Millions of Americans feel overwhelmed with stress every day without any knowledge on how to relax. In fact, over 3 million people in the United States alone are diagnosed with an anxiety disorder by a medical professional each year.

With those kinds of number, it is sad how many could really use some rest and relaxation in their life.

Though anxiety and stress can sometimes be treated with medication, this isn’t always the case and some would greatly prefer trying some more natural forms of relaxation and self-care. Luckily, there are a lot of relaxing practices out there that do not require any chemicals. From meditation to yoga, there is plenty to try. However, one of the best and most natural ways uses essential oils and a little aromatherapy.

Essential oils are natural oils that are typically obtained by distillation and having characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which it is extracted. These oils can be used to scent candles or as a form of therapy in order to reduce stress and mental fatigue. Though part of their therapeutic use relies in the aroma’s effect on the mind and body, essential oils have some benefits unique to their very substance.

In an article by Megy Karydes titled ‘Spa Treatments with Essential Oils Help Stressed Guests’, she shares how hotels around the world are using the therapeutic benefits of essential oils to help their guests get the relaxing vacation they need. Not only does Karydes share where you can enjoy some of these wonderful spa treatments, she also reveals how each essential oil works in order to relieve guests of their pent up stress.

With so many feeling overwhelmed with stress in this day and age, it is wonderful to have information on a way to help naturally ease and reduce our anxiety.

Though Karydes does share a lot about essential oils, she does not reveal how they can be used at home. In truth, there are several ways to accomplish this from lighting an essential oil infused candle to putting a few drops into a humidifier. However, one of the best ways to get the most out of these essential oils is to mix them directly into your bath water. You will only need two to three drops of one or a mix of essential oils into your bath water. Once you have made sure the oils have mixed into the bath water, you can just hop in and soak up the benefits.
