Nature knows best – essential oils and anxiety
With a highlight on Lively Livings Certified Organic ”Anxiety Aid” Essential Oil.
We’ve all been navigating our way through iso-anxiety of late, with changes to our world bringing moments of stress, worry and uncertainty.
Add in daily stressors of exams, job interviews, work presentations and burnout, house or business dealings or sales, grief and relationships change, and our brains and body can feel under attack.
Anxiety is a natural response to fear and threats, both perceived and real. Constant anxiety can lead to insomnia, digestive problems, meltdowns and panic attacks.
If constant worries feed your anxiety, incorporating essential oils can make a big difference. Essential oils have been a trusted therapeutic technique dating back 6000 years across Egypt, China, and India, stimulating our bodies and brains to reduce stress, fear and anxiety. Turns out, humans have been fretting for thousands of years!
The research support what history and nature knows
Essential oils are increasingly being studied by scientists in search of a more rigorous, specific understanding of their benefits to anxiety and wellbeing. Here are a few studies.
- The American College of Healthcare Sciences recognises that essential oils are effective in complementary anxiety relief and lifting moods
- Another study on teachers conducted in Taiwan in 2011 provided powerful evidence that the inhalation of aromatherapy is effective for depression management
- The Therapeutic Goods Association TGA notes that essential oils have been shown to be capable of lowering cortisol levels and improving the bodies stress response.
