Essential Oils to help with Anxiety and Depression
Essential oils are powerful tools to help with different issues. The particles in them when reaching our brain stimulates our limbic system which is controls our emotions, heart rate, stress and hormone balance.
Each different oil has different properties which help to heal different symptoms. In this blog I am covering the oils that are useful for anxiety, depression and negative thoughts.
Bergamot which is from the rind of a small orange like fruit that originated in Italy. This has a light uplifting smell and blends well with other oils. This is one of the best oils for depression, negative thoughts and lack of confidence.
Neroli is an oil that is great for stress and shock, it has a fragrant smell and is particularly good for mental train.
Orange is a really warm and cheerful oil, good for those who need a boost of energy to combat depression.
Lavender, one of the most popular oils, is good for coping with stress, fear and insomnia.
These oils can be used individually or you could combine them. The different options for using these oils are to inhale them or use them on the skin.
Inhalation – this can be done by using one of our oil burners or diffusers. The particles of oil are vaporized into the atmosphere where we inhale them, allowing them to reach and stimulate our olfactory system, where they begin to work on our energy and physical body.
Use on the skin – we can use oils by mixing a few drops with some olive or almond oil. Or we can put them in our bath, by mixing them with some milk and pouring under running water. It is also possible to mix them with some plain cream that you know if safe for your skin. Aqueous cream is good for this.
