Essential oils have been used for thousands of years. Their benefits are often overlooked due to the rising pharmaceutical market. Anxiety affects millions of people every day and some are affected to the point that they can no longer function. The rapid heartbeat, increased breathing, sweaty hands, & irrational thinking can take a toll on a person’s mental & emotional state as well as produce physical symptoms. The number one medication prescribed is known as a benzodiazepine, which can be very addicting.
As someone who has worked in the medical field, I have seen what benzo addiction can do to a person. As a person who is armed with this knowledge, and being an anxiety sufferer myself, I knew there had to be a different way to combat this daily struggle. After endless hours of research, I came to the conclusion that essential oils can offer tremendous relief from anxiety. There are certain oils that can be blended together to help reduce symptoms of anxiety. There are many benefits to using alternative methods versus medication.
When using an oil, you do not have to worry about becoming addicting (although you will want to use the oils every day). Also, essential oils are delivered into the body so quickly that there is no long wait time to get relief. The amazing benefit is that you can use the oils for years and never have to worry about seeing a television commercial about developing cancer or brain tumors after prolonged use! If you suffer from anxiety, I know how debilitating it can be. Why not try an essential oil blend and see if it is right for you?
Blends can be used daily and unlike regular medication, some of the blends can be used multiple times a day. This means that you no longer have to watch the clock to see how long you have before you can take your next dose. Also, oil blends work differently than traditional meds. When taking something by mouth, it has to go through your entire system and oftentimes it has to stay regulated at certain doses before you get relief. Essential oils can be applied topically on points known as vita flex points that will help deliver immediate relief. Typically, you apply them where you need relief. So, if you have a headache, you roll a blend on your forehead or if you need help calming anxiety relief, you can roll it on your wrists or inhale it.
Essential oil blends are ideal for people who are looking for alternative ways to rid their body and mind of symptoms.
