In the face of life's challenges, stress, anxiety, and mood swings can affect us all differently. These emotions can sometimes be challenging to manage, but there are ways to find balance. Certified organic essential oils can play a pivotal role in helping us regain control and continue living to our fullest potential.
Selecting the Right Essential Oils for Stress
When it comes to managing stress, certified organic essential oils like Bergamot, Lavender True, Sandalwood, and Petitgrain Bigarade offer effective solutions.
Bergamot is calming without inducing sleepiness, making it suitable for work-related stress.
Lavender True has found its place in hospitals for reducing anxiety and improving natural sleep patterns.
Sandalwood Australian, known for its deeply soothing properties, aids in releasing pent-up anxiety.
And if we had to single out one certified organic essential oil for combating stress, it would be Petitgrain Bigarade, renowned for balancing nerves and emotions.
To use these essential oils effectively, you can diffuse 10-20 drops into your space, apply 1-2 drops to pulse points, or inhale directly from the bottle in moments of crisis.
Potent Stress Less Essential Oil Blend
For a potent stress-reducing blend, look no further that our Stress Less clinician-formulated, certified organic essential oil blend. It combines the calming and harmonising qualities of Bergamot, Sandalwood Australian, Lavender Sweet and Lemon certified organic essential oils, offering a well-balanced approach to clear, calm thinking. It's designed not to be overly stimulating or sedative, making it ideal for daily use. You can diffuse it at home and work, apply a drop to pulse points 3-5 times a day, or add 10 drops to your bath. It's safe for use during pregnancy as well.
Preventing Stress Through a Healthy Lifestyle
Preventing stress involves finding balance and maintaining it – and we all know that’s not easy! Two fundamental safeguards we recommend include creating a daily and weekly schedule that aligns with your goals and prioritising healthy choices such as regular exercise, meditation, and moderate alcohol consumption. Integrating essential oils into this routine can help sustain a healthy balance and reinforce your intent for harmonious, productive living.
Choosing the Best Essential Oil for Anxiety
The best essential oil for anxiety may vary by gender. For women, Clary Sage is recommended as it addresses anxiety issues often linked to hormone balance. When overload is the primary concern, Bergamot can help calm the brain without inducing complacency.
For men, Sandalwood Australian is shown to be effective in managing anxious thoughts, while Cedarwood Atlas offers an economic alternative that is just as effective. Application methods are like those for stress management, as above.
Balancing Moods with Essential Oils
Balancing moods is a nuanced endeavor influenced by gender and specific needs. Citrus oils are generally effective for a mood boost, providing an energising and cleansing "reboot" for stagnant settings. Try our clinician-formulated certified organic essential oils blend Uplift, it’s a bright and upbeat blend perfect for shifting perspective and it has a gorgeous citrus aroma.
For manic or hyper moods, calming options like Lavender or Sandalwood may be preferred.
Hormonal imbalances can be addressed with oils like Clary Sage, Tarragon French, Sage, and German Chamomile. We also recommend our clinical blend Woman Support for women and mature girls dealing with hormonal endocrine imbalances.
Must-Have Essential Oils for Everyone
Lavender is a universally recognised essential oil for its calming, cleansing, and soothing qualities, making it a must-have. However, for more comprehensive support in managing anxiety and stress, clinical blends like Stress Less (mentioned above) offer a combination of 7-8 essential oils in one convenient package, delivering greater effectiveness and value.
We hope you find something here to help you balance out the next time you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed. Remember, if a low mood or feelings of stress and anxiety last longer than two weeks, it would be wise to consult a medical professional and seek out further support.
