In today’s fast-paced world, you would be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t have some form of stress in their life. Stress can manifest in many different ways; difficulty sleeping, concentration issues, loss of appetite, overeating, physical tension and headaches — just to name a few! The good news is there are many essential oil blends that can help relieve stress, nervous tension and anxiety.

Lavender, Roman Camomile and Ylang-Ylang

The combination of lavender, roman camomile and ylang-ylang is a powerful stress reliever. Lavender is great for relieving nervous tension, roman camomile has been used for centuries by mothers to help settle crying babies, and ylang-ylang or ‘flower of flower’ is considered an effective anti-depressant.

Bergamot, Patchouli and Ylang-Ylang

Bergamot is a relaxant and sedative, commonly used to ease nervous tension, anxiety and can even help lower high blood pressure. Whilst patchouli oil is known for its many skin benefits, it is also known to enhance and lift moods. Combined with ylang-ylang, this mix is both calming and lifting at the same time.

Lime, Mandarin and Lavender

Lime essential oil has lots of amazing health benefits including it’s anti-bacterial, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties but it is also an anti-depressant, mood enhancer and appetite stimulant. Mandarin oil shares many of the same benefits and is also a nervous relaxant and sedative. Combined with lavender oil, it not only helps ease stress, it also smells amazing!
