Our modern day lives are busy and rushed. Stress is a fatal disposition. I’m sure you’ve heard all about the health damaging effects of stress. Perhaps you are even experiencing some of these symptoms now. Insomnia, racing heart, joint aches, exhaustion, emotional frazlement: it’s not pretty. Essential oils can help! Diffusing life-giving, stress relieving essential oils can help you relax so that you are better able to deal with all of life’s many demands.
In our previous blog post we discussed how a fine blend of essential oils can also aid with relaxation specifically to help you sleep. In this blog post I’m going to expand on the essential oils that will help you to best relax throughout the day so you can perform at your best.
Following is a breakdown of essential oils that will help you find more zen time.
Lavender is one of the most versatile oils. It is more commonly known for its relaxing effects but works on bruises, cuts, and skin irritation too. The scent of lavender can reduce the levels of stress hormones in your blood.
Frankincense is used for relaxation, such as in baths, and to help minor cuts and bug bites heal more quickly. It can be used for depression, inflammation, immunity, and to increase spiritual awareness.
Chamomile. You're probably familiar with chamomile used as a tea, but the essential oil has similar properties. It's particularly well known for its relaxing effects, which is why the tea is popular to drink before bed. Put a few drops of this relaxing oil in your BellaSentials premium diffuser for some instant stress relief.
