Healing with Essential Oils

Healing with Essential Oils

Essential Oils can Pack a Powerful Punch!

When used safely, you can benefit from essential oils to help treat a variety of ailments. In particularly, for those that are anxiety sufferers. According to the Calm Clinic, it is said an average of 28.8% adults suffers from general anxiety.  That rate is expected to increase with a variety of factors that contribute to anxiety such as lack of sleep, electronics, stress, and many other contributing factors that induce anxiety. Luckily, you can help ease those symptoms by adding essential oils to your health routine. Below are some essential oils that I find to help with these issues and the best quality oils I recommend. Healing with Essential Oils.

Top Essential Oils that treats anxiety

It is said that Frankincense has the ability to fight cancer cells, however, that has not been fully researched or proved.

However, there is an article that discusses this in further detail about the link between Frankincense and how it is a cancer fighter.

Dab a couple drops on your lymphatic points to help flush the toxins out of your body in combination with a technique founded by Donna Eden called the “5 min. Energy Routine” will prove to be extremely effective. For more tips related to this see my other post about acupressure points.

    I love essential oils, especially the ones listed on this page! I find lavender, chamomile, and ylang ylang are great for relaxing and help you to get a good nights sleep. I often will use all three combined and diffuse them at night. I also like the aroma and find it very calming.

      That’s a great idea, you can definitely use all 3 since they all balance and are calming. I especially love dabbing lavender on my pillow before bed. 🙂

    Love, Love, Love your site! So glad I found this site right now. I live with severe anxiety and I do not want to continue to take medication as it goes against everything I believe in. Bergamot is something new to me and I find it quite interesting, maybe I’ll try to find that somewhere. How do you feel about Valerian Root? Is that maybe more for sleep than anxiety? You know what is sad/comical you have to put a disclaimer on your site about no proof of what essential oils can do for your health etc, but the doctors that put me on these horrible medicines that are addictive and horrible for your body are “experts”. People used plants to cure everything for thousands of years and we can do it again. Acupressure is wonderful too! I’ll be back to your site! Beautiful!

      Hi Keli, thanks for the kind comment! I totally agree with you, medication just numbs us and doesn’t go to the root cause. I know It’s too bad there isn’t enough support from our health system. I’ve tried Valerian Root but im so sensitive it makes me sleepy throughout the day too. I also find that what works for me now, may not down the road as my body adapts. It is a constant journey. 🙂

    I would like to try lavender oil to sleep. Does this really work? Sometimes I also have trouble concentrating especially if I’m nervous about something.
    I’ve heard of Frankincense but wasn’t aware that it’s a possible cancer fighter. If it’s effective in drawing the toxins out of your body, I’d like to try that.
    The others I have never heard of, but I’d like to know which of these you might recommend over the others?

      Hi Rob! Thanks for the comment. Yes lavender oil works great for sleep and headaches, you can dab a bit on your pillow and you can massage some on your temples. It will help relax you. Frankincense is quite potent but very effective, I would reccomend to start with lavender oil first as it is more gentle to use. Let me know how you work out. Cheers!
