Essential Oil Essentials

As humans, we’ve always relied on plant life for various things. You’re told to eat vegetables every day because they’re good for you. Gardening is widely recognized as a therapeutic activity, whether you’re growing food crops or flower gardens. And the fragrances of certain plants can help us in many ways too. According to a scientific review by the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine, essential oils are known for relieving stress and have been used in treatments for sleep disorders. They also have antibacterial, antiviral, and insect-repelling properties. That’s the power of plants for you!

However, as the market is unregulated, Lane stresses the importance of thoroughly researching vendors before you purchase any products. Essential oils used for diffusion, inhalation, and topical applications should not contain any synthetic ingredients or additives; the only thing on the ingredient list should be the extract from the plant on the label. 

Once you’ve ascertained that the oils you’ve purchased are pure, you can safely use them for their intended purposes.

Sweet Relief

Have the aromatic effects of essential oils caught your attention? If so, it’s super easy to integrate them into your life. You can use aromatherapy diffusers to disperse small amounts of essential oils into the air. In particular, sweet-smelling fragrances can stimulate certain olfactory receptors and trigger a calming effect in your nervous system, leading to a reduction in tension. 

Frankincense oil is commonly used for this purpose, and other essential oils that are known for similar therapeutic effects are lavender, bergamot, rose, and sweet marjoram.

For anxiety specifically, Lane suggests adding a few drops of lavender, geranium, lemon, and sandalwood essential oils to a 100-200 ml water tank diffuser.

For stress, you can instead use a combination of lime, bergamot, grapefruit, and sandalwood. 

Of course, anxiety and stress aren’t the only ailments out there. Additional recipes for different situations are available in the Loving Essential Oils guide, and Lane encourages you to adjust concentrations or experiment with different oils to see what works best for you. If you don’t like the smell of one oil, you can just try out another!

Who knows? You may end up stumbling upon a miracle recipe that rids you of all of that mental darkness at once!
