De-Stressing With Essential Oils

Stress affects almost every area of our lives, from our personal interactions with others to our professional capabilities and even our sleep. Fortunately, there are several things we can do to reduce stress. One of these involves using essential oils.

Essential oils are the concentrates that are obtained from certain plants. Different oils have different properties and offer different benefits. Lavender, rose, chamomile, ylang ylang, juniper berry and neroli are some of the essential oils that are very effective at helping to relieve stress.  To get the maximum benefit of these oils it is very important to learn how to use them properly.

How To Use Essential Oils For Stress Relief

Essential oils should never be used by themselves as they are very potent in their pure form. Before use any essential oil it should always be blended with a carrier oil such as jojoba or almond oil. The blended oil can then be used in various ways.

  • It can be massaged into the skin.
  • Put a few drops on your pillow before you go to sleep.
  • Put a few drops on a warm compress and place the compress over your forehead.
  • Add a few drops to bath salts and soak in it for a while for a most relaxing experience.

One of the best ways to enjoy the stress-relief benefits of essential oil is by burning them in a diffuser. The diffuser dispels the aroma of the oil via the heat sources but without posing any health risks. Burning a few drops of essential oil in a diffuser can create a fabulously calming, relaxing atmosphere in the entire room! It’s perfect to use in the bedroom for a good night’s sleep that will leave you feeling refreshed, recharged and reenergized for the day ahead.
