Essential oils are a particularly comforting even luxurious way of helping to manage your anxiety. Studies have shown that scents have a powerful effect on the brain and emotions. How often has a particular perfume suddenly brought up a memory? Or think of the enticing smell of freshly made coffee, baking bread or frying bacon.
Scents are more than just evocative. Although aromatherapy is barely a century old, we’ve known about the healing power of essential oils for thousands of years. Modern science tells us that the part of the brain that processes smells is right next to the limbic region. The limbic region not only deals with emotional processing and memory recall but it is also the part of the brain that regulates stress responses such as heart rate, breathing, and blood pressure.
The American College of Healthcare Services conducted a study of hospice patients who received daily hand massages with almond oil blended with bergamot, lavender, and frankincense essential oils. All patients reported feeling less stressed, pain and depression.
Essential oils are easy to use. Simply dilute sweet almond oil with a few drops of your chosen essential oil and massage gently into the skin. You can also use a vaporizer or oil burner to diffuse the essential oil molecules through the room.
