Home Remedies for Anxiety should
Always include Essential Oils

Are you looking for home remedies for anxiety?

Would you like to stop anxiety attacks organically?

Well, you have come to the right place! Essential oils can help manage and prevent anxiety in so many ways.

How and why are Essential Oils great home remedies for anxiety?

First, essential oils are convenient, quick and easy to use. You can wear them during the day, diffuse them in your home or work place, or simply keep them in your pocket.

Essential oils can be used in massage, and to enhance meditation and concentration. Read through the Use Section for more ideas!

Essential oils are organic substances from the volatile liquid of plants. The essential oils support the body to come back into balance without harmful side effects or chemical based products.

Making sure the oils are pure, therapeutic grade is important because a majority of the oils on the market are for aromatic use only, or contain chemicals that may be harmful to the body.

And, the most amazing and helpful aspect when looking for home remedies for anxiety is that....

Essential oil can immediately penetrate cell membranes and diffuse throughout the blood and tissues instantly in a matter of seconds. They cross the brain-blood barrier in seconds reaching the amygdala and other limbic parts of the brain. The amygdala also can influence the hypothalamus which is our hormonal center.

Why is this important?

The amygdala is the emotional center where all the emotions are controlled and stored. Anxiety, anger, fear depression and joy all originate from here!

And, the hypothalamus is responsible for sending out hormones that effect everything! Including our energy, mood, or state of anxiety!

So, just by…

Inhaling essential oils, we can minimize our stress, anxiety or any emotional trauma immediately! This makes them perfect home remedies for anxiety. It is that simple!

What is the difference between Stress and Anxiety?

Stress and anxiety are often confused and can be misunderstood easily! So, I have provided definitions for the readers below.

Many of the essential oils overlap when it comes to stress and anxiety. So I have another section that specifically addresses stress as well.

What is Stress?

Stress is the body's response to stimuli which can be from many different sources. And it can be positive or negative. For instance, exercise is very positive stimuli but it can also be negative to the body. It can help release stress from home or work, but overdone, it can place too much stress on the muscles and create over exertion and soreness.

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is really fear based emotion which creates an emotional and physical response in the body. If we do not recognize the symptoms of anxiety, or do not learn to manage it, then it can affect our physical and emotional well being.

What are Anxiety Symptoms?

Here are just a few. I have read websites where there are thousands!

What are some of the Physical Symptoms or Body Systems that are Affected?

  • Sleep - difficulty falling or staying asleep (see oils for sleeping)

  • Respiratory – shortness of breath, cant breath

  • Cardiovascular – heart palpitations, racing heart

  • Digestive – upset stomach, diarrhea, lack of taste/hunger

  • Immune - increase infection

  • Endocrine – fatigue, hormonal imbalance, dizziness

  • Skeletal/Muscular – stiffness, muscle tension, headaches

What are some of the Emotional Symptoms?

  • Fear – losing control, cant change.

  • Apprehension – feelings of insecurity, overwhelmed.

  • Mood – not consistent, irritability, sadness.

  • Concentration – hard to concentrate, forgetting easily.

  • Emotionally unstable

So, when we speak of anxiety, then we must look at the physical and emotional components. Essential oils are great for this use, because they address the spiritual, physical and emotional components of the body.

What Oils are Best used as Home Remedies for Anxiety?

Depending on the books and literature you read, there are over 15 different single oils that can help anxiety! This does not include professionally made blends that are also very useful.

I have divided the oils for home remedies for anxiety in three categories. Understand that oils always have some overlap because they don't just have one property.

And everyone's body chemistry is different. So what may be best for one person, may not be best for another.

My suggestion is as always, select one or two oils (or a blend) to use and find out what works best for you. Write down your experiences so you can recognize and remember the changes.

The three categories are:

  • Essential Oils that address Emotional Component

  • Essential Oils that address Physical Component are Tonics for Kidney and Heart

  • Essential Oils that address Extreme Fear or Attacks (panic or anxiety attacks)

What oils address the Emotional Component?

Oils that have sedative properties will calm and settle the mind. These oils will address the emotional component of anxiety.

The top choices for oils that are calming and relaxing are listed below. Click on the specific oil to see how to use it and find other helpful tips!

Most of these oils listed here for home remedies for anxiety will also be natural remedies for stress.

What Oils address the Physical Component?

In many alternative schools of thought the Kidneys and the Heart are considered to be out of balance in states of anxiety. This is particularly true in Oriental Medicine.

The oils that will assist with the physical components of anxiety are listed here and are considered tonics. Click on the specific oil to read more information on how to use it and what it is used for.

What Oils address Extreme Fear or Attacks (panic or anxiety attacks)?

Essential Oils that will immediately ground the body and bring the body back into alignment with the mind will help with fear, panic or anxiety attacks.

The top choices are listed below. Click on the specific oil to see how to use it and find out other helpful information.

I hope you can now see how essential oils are really one of the best home remedies for anxiety.

You can use them alone or you can easily combine them with one the other relaxation techniques such as yoga, tai chi, or meditation you may already use. It is that fun and simple!
