We’ve listed four of the best stress-busting oils below.
Considered the most common essential oil, lavender oil benefits include having a calming, relaing effect. It’s considered a nervous system restorative and can help with inner peace, sleep, restlessness, irritability, panic attacks, nervous stomach, and general nervous tension. This one is ideal for diffusing when at work or before bed to wash away any stress.
One of the benefits of rose essential oil is it’s very settling to the emotional heart, and perhaps the second most popular after lavender when it comes to relieving anxiety and depression, helping with panic attacks, grieving, and shock.
In a clinical study on the effects of both orange and rose oil, simply smelling the oils triggered the brain for relaxation. As a bright and uplifting oil, it stands alone nicely as well as blends beautifully with other oils. You can find Orange essential oil in our Renew and Vitality blends, both of which are restorative, soothing blends, as well as our uplifting Citrus Splash blend.
Lemon essential oil is an excellent choice for stress relief. In a 2014 evaluation of the oils cancer patients used to alleviate stress, lemon was among one of the most frequently chosen. You’ll find lemon in our Vitality blend, perfect for boosting your mood while helping to relax you.
