Learn About The Top Calming Essential Oils For Stress

Anxiety is a huge issue in our society, affecting a massive 18% of our population. Living with stress is dangerous to your mental and physical well being, so you need to find healthy coping mechanisms.

A lot of people use exercise or breathing exercises to relieve the stress they are going to or have already dealt with during the day. Unfortunately, not everyone has time to do that.

Essential oils for stress can help alleviate some of the symptoms. Here are some of the most effective oils to use when you're trying to minimise irritability and stress.


Majestic Pure Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender oil is a versatile oil, but it's widely agreed to be the best essential oil for stress. 

Just the aroma of lavender alleviates agitation and anxiety. It reduces irritation physically and mentally, along with helping concentration and sleep deprivation.

You can rub the oil directly onto your skin, directly onto your palms for inhalation, mix it with lotions and other oils, or add it into your baths or shampoos.


Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense oil is another calming essential oil, but, interestingly, it's also an oil that can increase energy. It's both revitalizing and soothing at the same time.

Inhaling this oil helps to slow down breathing and reduce blood pressure, which naturally reduces stress. It has a warm and calming effect and is recommended for anxiety attacks.

Frankincense has a woody, spicy smell which goes well with other citrus oils. It’s great for acne, wrinkles and oily skin as well. The earthy scent helps you to fall asleep naturally.


Stress Relief Blend

Stress Relief Blend is a popular essential oil for stress relief and anxiety. It starts with Bergamot oil that's taken from the rind of the citrus fruit. It has a comforting and rejuvenating effect on the body.

Another oil in the blend is Patchouli oil. Patchouli is extracted from leaves and is used to stimulate the chemicals “Dopamine” and “Serotonin” in the brain. It also has a strong and musky scent to ground the blend.

Along with those, another oil in this mix is the Blood Orange oil. Blood Orange is a tart citrus oil that relaxes the muscles and nervous system.

Ylang Ylang oil strengthens the nervous system and Grapefruit oil stimulates brain function and as well as reducing stress. These oils blend together well in one convenient little bottle.

With its vibrant lemon smell and variety of health benefits, Lemongrass is considered a nervine and it’s highly beneficial to your nervous system because it combats the anxiety and fatigue of stress.

The Sweet Orange oil is used as a sedative in this blend. It helps with anxiety, anger, depression and does wonders for your immune system. This essential oil blend also has Ylang Ylang in it, which helps repair any damage done to the nervous system.


Anxiety Relief Essential Oil Blend

This blend has Silver Fir oil in it, used for treating respiratory conditions, immune system and to detox the body.

The pleasant smell of it alone helps you to relax and breathe a little slower. Slow breathing helps decrease blood pressure and relax the muscles, which leads to stress relief. It has Ylang Ylang in it for nervous system repair and a blend of earthy oils like Juniper Needle, Norway Spruce and Cedarwood.

This blend has a woody scent which is very tranquilizing. You’re also able to apply it directly to the skin, instead of diluting it, for a faster effect.

Essential oils for stress relief and anxiety are imperative if you're struggling to find any other way of coping with stress and anxiety.

Essential oils are ever-increasing in popularity but are still neglected by many, but they seem to work just as well as any medication and have far less chance of damaging your body as you won't come to rely on them as you may come to rely on medication.
