How Essential Oils Can Benefit You

We all know how stressful life can be sometimes especially when it's becoming harder to be present with all of the new technology coming out. That's nothing new. For me, stress tends to come out physically via hyperventilation which feels like you're trapped in a box with little air. Not a great feeling. When I'm in this situation it really helps me to awaken one of the five senses, particularly, smell. Now, when I feel like I can't breathe, I dilute a couple of drops of lavender or lemon essential oils on my neck which helps me to relax into my normal breathing pattern.

Lavender oil in particular is one of the safest oils in aromatherapy. Unfortunately, due to its popularity, it's commonly cut with lower quality lavender or additives. High altitude lavender is one that is hard to come by, but well worth it. You can find high altitude essential oils at https://www.verdantoils.com/. Scientists have even found that lavender has a balancing effect on the Central Nervous System which means it provides a calming effect when the body is overstimulated. On the other hand, Lavender can also be used as a stimulate when used in high concentrations. It's also a great blending oil, especially with citrus based oils such as lemon. This combination is great for anxiety, depression and stress.
