Essential Oils for Stress Relief

Honestly, I stress out a lot. Like every day. About the littlest things. But, I am not a fan of anxiety medication because I believe "medication" should be natural, and I have a fear of dependency on drugs. So I discovered the next best thing: Essential Oils.

Now, I know I am late to hop on the bandwagon, but really essential oils are useful for everything!

I recently bought a Now brand diffuser from Whole Foods (~$20), and a few essential oils from Whole Foods and Target. I don't know the specifics of the diffuser, whether it is hot or cold diffusion, but with mine, even though it says warm water, I usually use cold to keep the nutrients that are naturally found in the oils.

This diffuser lasts 4-6 hours (sometimes more), and I usually put it on when I am studying or trying to sleep to help relieve my stress.

I created a few relaxation blends you can use if you need a little pick me up:

Stress Be Gone: 10 drops lavender essential oil, 10 drops peppermint essential oils, 5 drops Eucalyptus oil

Happy Thoughts: 15 drops lavender essential oil, 15 drops sweet orange essential oil

Clear Your Mind: 10 drops peppermint oil, 5 drops eucalyptus oil, and 5 drops tea tree oil

I hope these blends help you get through your week! I will be doing more posts on my natural remedies to help you guys live a happy and healthy lifestyle!
