Oils for Stress

Stress is part of everyday life. The problem is that there is no way to avoid it completely. With constant stress throughout our lives, our bodies eventually begin to respond: headaches, insomnia, muscle cramps. All of these symptoms can sometimes lead to heart problems.

So, even if we can’t completely remove the stress from our lives, we can reduce the inconvenience that stress causes. How? By learning to deal with it better. A man is lodged and trapped in his body from which he cannot escape and in which he feels good or bad. Whenever we think, feel, or experience, our body reacts.
With the daily dynamics of life, we all need a break to keep the balance we need. It is often difficult to catch that desired respite in the fast-paced rhythm of life, so essential oils are the perfect natural strength when you need to “stop-time” and take a deep breath of peace and balance.

Aromatherapy helps with stress by directly affecting the limbic and autonomic nervous systems. When we smell something, olfactory or olfactory receptors send a message to the limbic system, which is associated with instincts, moods and emotions. This is one of the reasons why aromatherapy is good for stress, emotional and psychological problems. Stress reduction through aromatherapy is especially effective because the pleasant scent in itself has a calming effect.
