Anxiety

Top Essential Oils for Anxiety

Anxiety is a tough battle to face day in and day out, which makes having a natural solution, such as an essential oil blend, important.

In a recent 2014 study by the American College of Healthcare Sciences, 58 hospice patients were given hand massages once a day for one week with an essential oil blend in 1.5 percent dilution with sweet almond oil. The essential oil blend consisted of these essential oils in equal ratios of bergamot, frankincense and lavender. All patients who received the aromatherapy hand massage reported less pain and depression,concluding that aromatherapy massage with this essential oil blend is more effective for pain and depression management than massage alone. (1)

Here are some of the best essentials oils for anxiety:

EO Lavender nb

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)

Considered the most common essential oil, lavender oil benefits include having a calming, relaxing effect. It’s considered a nervous system restorative and helps with inner peace, sleep, restlessness, irritability, panic attacks, nervous stomach and general nervous tension.

“The Handbook of Essential Oils: Science, Technology, and Applications, Second Edition” states that there have been a number of clinical trials involving the inhalation of lavender essential oil that indicate a reduction in stress and anxiety. (2) One study using oral lavender essential oil via capsules found that heart rate variation significantly increased compared to the placebo while watching an anxiety-provoking film. (3) This suggested that lavender had anxiolytic effects.

Further research demonstrates lavender’s ability to lower anxiety in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery and in people visiting the dentist. (45)

EO Frank nb

Frankincense is great for treating depression and anxiety because it provides a calming and tranquil energy as well as spiritual grounding. In aromatherapy, it helps deepen meditation and quiet the mind.

Mixed with lavender oil in a 1:1 ratio in an aroma hand massage, frankincense was found to have a positive effect on pain and depression in hospice patients with terminal cancer.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy for anxiety is very popular because our sense of smell triggers powerful emotional responses. We process so much information through our sense of smell — in particular, in an area of the brain adjacent to the limbic region. This is the area of emotional processing and memory recall.

When the scent of an essential oil is inhaled, molecules enter the nasal cavities and stimulate a firing of mental response in the limbic system of the brain. These stimulants regulate stress or calming responses, such as heart rate, breathing patterns, production of hormones and blood pressure. Aromatherapy can be obtained by using it in a bath, as direct inhalations, hot water vapor, vaporizer or humidifier, fan, vent, etc.

Since they are so potent, it is important to dilute and blend with a carrier oil, such as sweet almond or coconut oil. You can apply the blend directly to an affected area, on the bottoms of the feet, rims of the ears, using compresses, in baths or through massage.

Essential Oils Recipes for Anxiety

Easy Lavender Neck Rub

INGREDIENTS:

3 drops pure lavender oil

1 teaspoon fractionated coconut oil or almond oil

DIRECTIONS:

Blend the lavender oil and coconut or almond oil in your palm and rub onto your neck for natural anxiety relief. You can also rub onto the bottoms of your feet. This is perfect for anytime or just before bed.

 

 

Allergies

One of the most amazing benefits of essential oils are their ability to fight inflammationand boost the immune system. Essential oils for allergies will help to detoxify the body and fight infections, bacteria, parasites, microorganisms and harmful toxins. They reduce the bodies susceptibility to outside sources and reduce the overreaction of the immune system when it is faced with a harmless intruder. Some exceptional essential oils even work to relieve respiratory conditions and increase sweat and urination — helping with the elimination of toxins.

Eo Pep nb

Peppermint Oil

Inhaling diffused peppermint oil can oftentimes immediately unclog the sinuses and offer relief to scratchy throats. Peppermint acts as an expectorant and provides relief for allergies, as well as colds, coughs, sinusitis, asthma and bronchitis. It has the power to discharge phlegm and reduce inflammation — a leading cause of allergic reactions.

A 2010 study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology investigated the effects of peppermint oil in the tracheal rings of rats. The results suggest that peppermint oil is a relaxant and exhibits antispasmodic activity, inhibiting contractions that causes you to cough. (1)

Another study published in the European Journal of Medical Research suggests that peppermint oil treatment has anti-inflammatory effects — reducing the symptoms of chronic inflammatory disorders such as allergic rhinitis and bronchial asthma. (2)

Remedy: Diffuse five drops of peppermint essential oil at home to unclog sinuses and treat a scratchy throat. This will also help to relax the nasal muscles, enabling the body to clear out mucus and allergens like pollen. To reduce inflammation, take 1–2 drops of pure peppermint essential oil internally once a day.

It can be added to a glass of water, cup of tea or smoothie. Peppermint oil can also be applied topically to the chest, back of neck and temples. For people with sensitive skin, it is best to dilute peppermint with coconut or jojoba oil before topical application.

EO Euc nb

Eucalyptus Oil

Eucalyptus oil opens up the lungs and sinuses, thereby improving circulation and reducing symptoms of allergies. Studies have shown that it produces a cold sensation in the nose that helps to improve airflow. (5)

Eucalyptus contains citronellal, which has analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects; it also works as an expectorant, helping to cleanse the body of toxins and harmful microorganisms that are acting as allergens.

A 2011 study published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicinefound that eucalyptus essential oil was an effective treatment for upper respiratory tract infections. Patients who were treated with eucalyptus spray reported an improvement in the severity of their most debilitating respiratory tract infection symptoms compared to participants in the placebo group. Improvement was defined as a reduction of sore throat, hoarseness or cough. (6)

A study from NYU Medical School found that using eucalyptus was effective at treating sinusitis. Patients experienced faster improvement when supplementing with eucalyptus oil for allergies and sinus issues.

Remedy: To treat respiratory issues associated with allergies, diffuse five drops of eucalyptus at home or apply it topically to the chest and temples. To clear the nasal passages and relieve congestion, pour a cup of boiling water into a bowl and add 1–2 drops of eucalyptus essential oil. Then place a towel over your head and inhale deeply for 5–10 minutes.

EO Tea Tree nb

Tea Tree Oil

This powerful oil can destroy airborne pathogens that cause allergies. Diffusing tea tree oil in the home will kill mold, bacteria and fungi. It is an antiseptic agent and it has anti-inflammatory properties. Tea tree oil can be applied to the skin to kill bacteria and microorganisms; it can also be used as a household cleaner to disinfect the home and eliminate allergens. (9)

A 2000 study conducted in Germany found that tea tree oil exhibits antimicrobial activity against a wide range of bacteria, yeasts and fungi. These microbes lead to inflammation and force our immune system to work on overdrive. (10)

Remedy: Use tea tree oil on skin rashes and hives or as a household cleaner. When using tea tree topically, add 2–3 drops to a clean cotton ball and gently apply to the area of concern. For people with sensitive skin, dilute tea tree with a carrier oil first, like coconut or jojoba oil.

How to Use Essential Oils for Allergies

 

Skin Rash & Hives — Use tea tree oil topically to treat skin rashes and hives. Add 2–3 drops to a cotton ball and apply to the affected area. Layering oils over the liver area is another way to treat skin irritations because it helps the liver to flush out toxins that burden the skin. Dilute 3–4 drops of tea tree oil with coconut oil and rub it into the liver area.

Seasonal Allergies — Disinfect your home with lemongrass and tea tree oil; this will eliminate triggers and cleanse the air and your furniture. Add 40 drops of lemon oil and 20 drops of tea tree oil to a 16-ounce spray bottle. Fill the bottle with pure water and a little bit of white vinegar and spray the mixture on any area in your home.

Allergy Blend — Combine 2–3 drops of peppermint, eucalyptus and lavender oil with one teaspoon of coconut oil and massage the mixture into the temples, behind the ears and into the bottoms of the feet.

Rub frankincense and lavender on your palms and inhale deeply to relieve itchy eyes and throat.

Diffusing peppermint along with clove oil and eucalyptus oil can also reduce allergy symptoms.

Possible Side Effects

When using any of these oils topically, dilute with a carrier oil, especially when using on sensitive skin or one sensitive areas, like under the eyes or on the neck.

 

Headaches

 

Essential oils serve as headache treatments because they safely and effectively treat the headache trigger, instead of minimizing the pain temporarily.  Essential oils provide relief, aid circulation and reduce stress.  Plus, when using essential oils for headaches, there are no nasty side effects such as liver or kidney damage.

Triggers

  • Hormonal changes in women. Fluctuations in estrogen can trigger headaches in many women, especially immediately before or during their periods when estrogen levels drop. Some women develop migraines during pregnancy or menopause due to hormonal imbalances. Hormonal medications can even worsen headaches, so using essential oils as a gentle and natural treatment is recommended.
  • Stress.
  • Changes in sleeping patterns can also lead to a headache.
  • Headaches may also be the result of intense physical exertion, allergies, sinus pressure, certain foods and sensory stimuli. All of these triggers can be minimized or even eliminated with essential oils.

Eo Pep nb

Peppermint Oil

Peppermint oil has a long-lasting cooling effect on the skin, ability to inhibit muscle contractions and stimulates blood flow in the forehead when applied topically.

Applying peppermint essential oil topically across the forehead and on the temples effectively alleviates a tension headache. In a 1996 study, 41 patients (and 164 headache attacks) were analyzed in a placebo-controlled, double-blind crossover study. The peppermint oil was applied topically 15 and 30 minutes after a headache began.

Participants reported pain relief in their headache diaries, and peppermint oil proved to be a well-tolerated and cost-effective alternative to usual headache therapies. There were also no adverse side effects reported after peppermint treatment.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8805113

In order to improve blood circulation, reduce pain and relieve tension, dilute two to three drops of peppermint oil with almond oil and rub it into the shoulders, forehead and back of neck.

EO Lavender nb

Lavender Oil

Lavender essential oil induces relaxation and relieves tension and stress — working as a sedative, antidepressant, anti-anxiety, anxiolytic, anticonvulsant and calming agent. There is also growing evidence that lavender oil serves as an effective treatment of neurological conditions and disorders.

Aromatic and topical use of lavender oil affects the limbic system because the main constituents, linalool and linalyl acetate, are rapidly absorbed through the skin and are thought to cause central nervous system depression. For this reason, lavender oil can be used to treat headaches caused by anxiety disorders and related conditions.

Lavender oil benefits include relieving feelings of restlessness and disturbed sleep, two symptoms of headaches. It also regulates serotonin levels, which helps minimize pain in the nervous system that can lead to migraine attacks.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3612440/

A 2012 study published in European Neurology found that lavender essential oil is effective  in the management of migraine headaches. Forty-seven participants were investigated in this placebo-controlled clinical trial. The treatment group inhaled lavender oil for 15 minutes during a migraine headache. The patients were then asked to record their headache severity and associated symptoms in 30-minute intervals for two hours.

The difference between the control and treatment groups was statistically significant. From the 129 headache cases in the treatment group, 92 responded entirely or partially to lavender oil inhalation. In the control group, 32 out of 68 recorded that headache attacks responded to the placebo; the percentage of responders was significantly higher in the lavender group than the placebo group.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22517298

According to a study published in the European Journal of Neurology people struggling with migraine headaches saw a significant reduction in pain when they inhaled lavender oil for 15 minutes.

Probably the most effective natural treatment for headaches is combing lavender oil with peppermint oil and rubbing these oils on the back of the neck, the temples on the lateral side of the forehead along with inhaling it. Typically 2 drops of each oil in the palm of your hand then rubbed into the areas works perfectly.

To reduce muscle tension, boost mood, aid sleep and relieve stress, diffuse five drops of lavender oil at home or in the office. You can also apply lavender oil topically to the back of neck, temples and wrists to relieve stress or tension headaches. To relax your body and mind, add five to 10 drops of lavender oil to a warm-water bath and take deep breaths so the sedative properties begin to take effect and reduce headache tension.

EO Euc nb

Eucalyptus Oil

Eucalyptus works as an expectorant — it helps cleanse the body of toxins and harmful microorganisms. It also opens the nasal airways and eliminates sinus pressure that can lead to a nasty headache, all while promoting emotional balance and boosting mood.

A clinical trial published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicinestates that inhaling eucalyptus oil can decrease a person’s pain and blood pressure. The study involved 52 patients who recently underwent total knee replacement surgery. Eucalyptus oil treatment promoted emotional stability in the patients, reduced edema formation and had anti-inflammatory effects. These pain-reducing and relaxing effects can be beneficial to people suffering from tension headaches.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3703330/

A 2011 study conducted in Israel evaluated the efficacy of eucalyptus oil when used on patients with respiratory conditions that can lead to cough, sore throat and tension headaches. Patients reported that eucalyptus oil improved breathing and reduced runny nose.

Researchers reported that the oil showed anti-inflammatory effects when used to treat respiratory conditions. It exhibited antibacterial, antiviral and antimicrobial properties that alleviate sinus pressure caused by an inflammatory response.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2967840/

EO Lemongrass nb

Lemongrass Oil

The calming and soothing effects of lemongrass oil has the power to relieve the pain, pressure, or tension that can cause headaches. Try massaging diluted lemongrass oil on your temples and breathe in the relaxing lemony fragrance.

How to Use 

Migraine Headache

Massage lavender or peppermint oil into the temples and back of neck to relieve migraine headaches and ease feelings of nausea and anxiety.

Tension Headache

Use eucalyptus or peppermint oil topically on the temples, forehead and wrists to alleviate stress and reduce tension. Add 5–10 drops of lavender oil to a warm-water bath.

Sinus Headache

Use eucalyptus oil topically on the chest, top of nose and temples to open up the nasal passages and relieve sinus tension.

Applying the Blends

Headaches are best relieved with topical application. When using these essential oils for headaches, especially in sensitive areas like the nose and forehead, it’s best to combine with a carrier oil, such as sweet almond, and massage on the surface of the skin.

Acne

 

EO Tea Tree nb

Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is known for its antimicrobial and antifungal properties.

A 2007 study suggests that tea tree oil is an effective treatment for mild to moderate acne. Sixty patients were divided into two groups — one group was treated with tea tree oil and one was the placebo. The participants were followed every 15 days for a period of 45 days. The response to treatment was evaluated by the total acne lesions counting and acne severity index.

The results of the study showed a significant difference between tea tree oil gel and placebo in the improvement of the total acne lesions count, as tea tree oil was 3.6 times more effective than the placebo. In regard to overall acne severity, tea tree oil was 5.8 times more effective, proving that tea tree oil serves as an effective and natural treatment for mild to moderate acne.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17314442

One study found tea tree oil to be just as effective as benzoyl peroxide, but without the associated negative side effects that many people experience including red, dried and peeling skin.

You can make a homemade gentle tea tree oil acne face wash by mixing five drops of pure tea tree essential oil with two teaspoons of raw honey. Simply rub on your face, leave on for one minute, then rinse off.

To use tea tree as an essential oil for acne, add 2–3 drops to a clean cotton ball and apply topically to the area of concern. Tea tree can also be added to your daily face or body wash  or it can be added to a spray bottle filled with water and spritzed on the face or body.

EO Lavender nb

Lavender

Lavender oil has profound benefits on your skin because of its antimicrobial and antioxidant characteristics. It soothes and nourishes the skin — treating acne, healing dry skin, and reducing the appearance of dark spots and scars caused by acne.

Other benefits include its ability to reduce stress and anxiety that are associated with acne breakouts in adults and its therapeutic properties that improve your quality of sleep, thereby promoting healthy and radiant skin.

A study published in the Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand found that lavender oil provides a relaxing effect when inhaled. Twenty volunteers participated in a study that investigated the effects of lavender oil on the central nervous system, autonomic nervous system and mood responses. The results revealed that lavender oil caused significant decreases of blood pressure, heart rate and skin temperature. The participants characterized themselves as more relaxed and refreshed after lavender oil inhalation.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22612017

Studies suggest that stress and acne are connected, explaining why people often experience acne flare-ups in times of increased stress and anxiety. Researchers believe that an increase in acne may be due to higher levels of sebum that are produced in times of stress; therefore, lavender essential oil serves as a powerful tool because of its stress-reducing capabilities.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12873885

To use lavender oil to alleviate feelings of stress that can trigger the production of sebum, diffuse 5 drops of oil at home or apply topically to the wrists, back of neck or temples. Lavender essential oil also has antibacterial properties and can be used directly on the skin to fight acne.

EO Clove nb

Clove Oil

Clove has the greatest anti-microbial ability over E. coli and also exerted considerable control over Staph aureus which causes acne and Pseudomonas aeruginosa which causes pneumonia.

As a natural remedy to eliminate acne, take 3 drops clove oil and mix with 2 tsp raw honey. Mix together and wash your face or you can also try tea tree oil face wash.

How to Use

The best way to use essential oils for acne is to apply 2–3 drops topically to the area of concern. These oils are safe for neat or direct application, but they can also be combined with a carrier oil such as almond or coconut oil.

Natural Acne Scar Treatment

Make a paste by mixing the following ingredients:

2 teaspoons raw honey

3 drops lavender oil

3 drops tea tree oil

3 drops frankincense oil

Wash and dry your face, then apply the paste and let it sit for an hour before rinsing off.

Note

Remember that a little goes a long way, so use only 2–3 drops on the skin.

If you have sensitive skin, dilute the essential oils with a carrier oil before applying topically. Also, avoid exposure to direct sunlight when treating acne with essential oils. The UV rays can make your skin more sensitive and may lead to skin irritations or redness. If using any of these essential oils causes skin irritation, do not use that oil; try a gentler oil like lavender instead.

 

Arthritis

 

Frankinsence oil

can inhibit the inflammation associated with conditions like arthritis and can be useful in helping to prevent the breakdown of the cartilage tissue, making it a natural treatment option for pain-related conditions that affect the muscles, joints and tendons.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19943332

 

Orange Oil

The strong anti-inflammatory properties of orange oil have been researched in regard to their effects for fighting pain. A 2009 study published in the European Journal of Medical Research investigated the antioxidant potential of various essential oils, reporting that orange was the most highly effective of those studied, which in turn makes it a great essential oil for arthritis treatment.

Dilute a few drops of the orange essential oil with 1 teaspoon of almond oil, and rub it wherever you have arthritic pain.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3521325/

Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet almond oil is obtained from the dried kernels of the almond tree and it is an excellent emollient (softening and soothing to the skin) and also helps the skin to balance its loss and absorption of moisture.

It is further a great moisturizer suitable for all skin types, helps relieve irritation, inflammation and itching, and is greatly lubricating and because it is not an overly fast penetrating oil, it is a good massage medium to use to help spread the oil and essential oil mixture, while still allowing you time to do a good massage before it is absorbed by the skin.

Not only does almond oil help protect the surface of the skin, but has great value to act as an emollient, skin soother and softener while conditioning the skin and promoting a clear young looking complexion, also helps to relieve muscular aches and pains.

It has a rich concentration of oleic and linoleic essential fatty acids, and although mostly used on its own as a massage carrier oil, it also works well by diluting with 10% wheatgerm oil to help give it a longer shelf life.

Sweet almond oil is one of the most popular carrier oils, since it is non-greasy, spreads easily and also is great for nourishing the skin.
