Does Aromatherapy For Anxiety Work?

There have been multiple studies conducted to determine the efficacy of using essential oils for anxiety and the good news is that aromatherapy for anxiety has been proven to be an effective treatment.

Aromatherapy is a Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) form of treatment often applied in a combination with other traditional and complementary treatments. How essential oils for anxiety work is that when inhaled, the molecules of essential oils travel to the top of the nose to the sensory cells of the olfactory scheme. When this happens it releases neurochemical substances which cause a soothing, relaxing, excitatory or euphoric effect on the body. The molecules can also enter the nervous system resulting in relaxation and relieving nerves which is why essential oils for anxiety have been shown to be effective.

Some of the additional benefits of aromatherapy for anxiety are that it is a non-invasive, cheap, easily applicable and cost-effective treatment. However, as with all complementary treatments you should always take the advice of your healthcare professionals and consult with them if symptoms persist. When using essential oils for anxiety, you also need to ensure you select the correct oils and apply them properly.

The Best Essential Oils For Anxiety

Whilst studies have shown that there are many effective essential oils for anxiety, here are some of the best essential oils for anxiety:

  • Lavender
  • Basil
  • Bergamot
  • Cedarwood
  • Chamomile
  • Geranium
  • Lemon
  • Marjoram
  • Myrrh
  • Neroli
  • Sweet orange
  • Patchouli
  • Petitgrain
  • Rosewood
  • Thyme
  • Valerian
  • Vetiver
  • Ylang ylang

Many people opt to use lavender oil for anxiety as this is considered one of the best essential oils for anxiety. Multiple studies have indicated the effectiveness of using lavender oil for anxiety as it has been shown to help lower your heart rate, temperature and blood pressure.

Because many people use their saunas at the end of the day to help them relax and destress, adding essential oils for anxiety is a great way to enhance these benefits. This is why we offer essential oils in our range of accessories, including lavender oil for anxiety. When preparing for your sauna session, we recommend adding a few drops of your chosen essential oil to an oil burner or dabbing some on your towel.
