Reduce Stress with Essential Oils

Reduce Stress with Essential Oils

April is stress awareness month and it got us thinking about the best ways to reduce stress and beat overwhelm. There are plenty of amazing essential oils for stress and while they can’t cure stress or anxiety, they have plenty of benefits for your body and mind. Here’s how to use them to reduce stress.

Use a diffuser

Inhaling essential oils can provide a real sense of calm. Using a diffuser will also make your home smell amazing. Great stress-busting oils to use in a diffuser include lavender, wild orange, rosemary, and geranium.

Add a few drops of oil to a cotton wool ball

Need to relieve stress on the go? Add a few drops of an oil such as wild orange or bergamot to a cotton wool ball and pop it in your bag. Sniff it as you need to and you’ll be able to relieve stress and feel uplifted wherever you are.

Use them in your relaxation or meditation routine

One of the best essential oils for stress is lavender, so it’s perfect for incorporating into any relaxation or meditation routine. Spritz our lavender and fennel essential oil mist in the room before a meditation session or on your pillow when you want to relax and drift off.

Treat yourself to an essential oil self-massage

Massage is an amazing way to reduce stress and who's to say you can’t do a massage on yourself when you’re having some much-needed me time? Remember to dilute the oil with a carrier oil such as almond or jojoba oil before you begin. Oils like lavender and bergamot work really well for self-massage. Massage your blend into your pulse points, then treat yourself to a relaxing hand or foot massage.

Essential oils won’t cure stress, but they can reduce it and restore a sense of calm when everything feels a bit overwhelming. Try out the different ways of using essential oils for stress and see which one works for you.
