As a clinical aromatherapist and a certified career coach I often blend (ha!) essential oils into my coaching work with clients. And here are some tips to deal with anxiety
So many people suffer from anxiety.
First it’s important to investigate your thoughts and determine what is causing the anxiety. Thoughts and feelings are connected and create our results.
Examining the thought, asking yourself if it’s true, and can you prove it true is one way to dig into the root cause of the anxiety.
Another way I have found incredibly helpful for myself and others to use Lavender essential oil for aromatherapy. Research shows that active chemical agent in Lavender, Linalool, acts as a calming effect on our neurotransmitters and can soothe an overactive brain.
Inhaling essential oils stimulates the olfactory system, the part of the brain (amygdala and hippocampus) connected to smell, including the nose and the brain. Molecules that enter the nose or mouth pass to the lungs, and from there, to other parts of the body. As the molecules reach the brain, they affect limbic system, which is linked to the emotions, the heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress, and hormone balance
I think of Lavender as the MacGyver of all essential oils. She is ALWAYS prepared and works on pretty much everything…headaches, helpful with insomnia, bug bites, and she aids in the balancing of hormones.
Inhale straight from the bottle or put a few drops on a cotton ball and stuff in a pocket.
Never leave home without it.
