Treating Anxiety and Depression with Aromatherapy

by James McElwee

Depending on the circumstances, stress and mounting pressure can motivate you to accomplish greatness or make each day a challenge to complete. If you leave stress to increase, usually, the results are undesirable. Over time, the physical signs of stress can become too much to handle, including headaches, fatigue, and sleepless nights. In this article, you will encounter herbal suggestions on how to control various situations.


You could be facing a time in your life where your nerves are jittery or are simply worrying about an upcoming event (wedding, college exam, or medical test results). Stress can cause you to become quite anxiety, to the point where everyday tasks seem impossible. Good news – when you inhale essential oils, you can stimulate the part of the brain (called limbic), which controls are feelings of wellness and unhappiness.

Essential oils can create a healthy balance between your senses and help stop the course of impending deep depression. Other negative reactions to anxiety that the body exhibits include skin inflammation and acne. In addition to using herbal oils to uplift and calm your nerves, consider increasing the amount of vitamin C and B-complex in your diet. Consider the following to ease your anxiousness:

Basil: Possesses uplifting properties

 Bergamot: Possesses uplifting properties

 Neroli: Possesses sedative properties

 Sandalwood: Possesses calming properties

 Lavender: Possesses soothing properties

 Geranium: Possesses relaxing properties


The constant ups and downs of daily life can cause one to sink deep into depression, as bills start to pile up, marriages are on the brink of dissolution, and your boss is getting on your nerves. If you allow your troubles to increase and affect your daily routine, depression or ‘feeling the blues’ is inevitable.

Problems allowed to linger will only cause your current state of living to worsen. Even your immune system feels the burden, which opens the doors to invite further mental, emotional, and physical issues to settle in. But, when you use essential oils as a method of treatment, you can lift your spirits and travel on the road towards mental and physical healing in no time.

If you are in need of uplifting your spirits, you should consider the power of the following essential oils: sage, cypress, bergamot, lemongrass, and rosemary. To enjoy a session of soothing, embrace the effects of marjoram, neroli, geranium, jasmine, chamomile, rose, patchouli, ylang-ylang, sandalwood, and lavender.

It is suggested to start your journey with essential oils by choosing three selections that offer soothing properties. To create a stimulating effect, replace one of the soothing oils with one known to uplift the spirits. For example, combining geranium, lavender, and bergamot essential oils has been proven to bring satisfying results. They make great bath and full body treatments.
