Top 9 Essential Oils for Stress

Have you been feeling overwhelmed, anxious, nervous or depressed? Maybe you have had changes in your appetite, frequent illness, headaches, low energy or aches, pains and muscle tension?

These symptoms could be a result of the stress in your life. Work, finances, relationships, health and so much more can contribute to the stress we carry day to day. However, chronic stress can happen when you have high levels of stress or feel stressed for long periods of time.  When untreated, this type of stress can lead to health problems like:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Skin problems
  • Obesity
  • Digestive issues
  • Breathing Problems

 

Essential Oils for Stress

 

According to the American Psychological Association, stress can be managed by adopting  healthy eating, regular physical activity, sufficient sleep and other healthy lifestyle behaviors. One other way that help manage stress is aromatherapy through essential oils. Adopted by ancient civilizations, essential oils are finding their way back to treating modern day ailments. Various studies have been conducted on the impact essential oils have on stress and the findings are seemingly alike. In fact,  a study entitled, Aromatherapy Benefits Autonomic Nervous System Regulation for Elementary School Faculty in Taiwan, revealed a positive correlation in essential oil aromatherapy and stress reduction in elementary school teachers. 

Though research provides us with sound evidence, it is still up to you to decide which essentials oils work best in combating your chronic stress.  Here are some of my personal favorites.
