We live in a stress-filled world and most feel they are constantly under pressure. Chronic stress can be damaging to the body as well as cause complications with emotions and mental health. Periodic stress can help us be productive such as when we have a new job interview or are performing a piano recital. But when it continues over time or like when you are stuck in traffic while trying to get to an important meeting, it can have negative effects. Ongoing stress can also lead to many health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, a weakened immune system, depression and chronic fatigue.

Effectively managing stress can be beneficial for your health both physically and mentally. This is why we combined some of our top stress relief oil blends into a single Stress Relief Set. Each blend contains oils that are useful for reducing or managing the effects of stress on you.

How Essential Oils Help Fight Stress

When essential oils are inhaled, the fragrant molecules pass through the brain or blood barrier. This allows them to have a direct effect on the areas of the brain that is in charge of controlling stress and anxiety. It can also help with feelings of panic or depression. They work because the olfactory nerve takes in the fragrance and it enters the skull through little holes directly connected to the brain. Once the fragrance reaches the nerves signals are sent to various parts of the brain including the amygdala and the limbic system. These are in charge of our moods, memory and emotions as well as regulating the nervous system. Our nervous system triggers the fight-or-flight response, raises blood pressure and speeds up our breathing when we are stressed out. Using appropriate scents can trigger physical reactions in the body and can have the same effect as anti-anxiety medications.

Ways to use Oil Blends to Fight Stress

There are several ways to reap the stress-fighting benefits of essential oils. Here are five ways to use them for relief.

  1. Inhale the oil blend of your choice directly. Pour a couple of drops on a cloth, handkerchief or cotton ball and breathe in taking two or three slow, deep breaths.
  2. Add the blends to a carrier oil and apply it to your wrists, temples or other areas of the body, particularly areas like pulse points or where you can breathe in its aroma.
  3. Add the blend to your bath or shower. When using oils for aromatherapy in the shower, remember to plug the drain to help build up steam.
  4. Add a few drops to your diffuser for a long-lasting effect.
  5. Wear diffuser jewelry saturated with your favorite stress-busting blend.
