It’s almost impossible to dodge stress. It’s everywhere – in the office, at home, and every time you go out. Anxiety is a general ailment these days, and some people struggle with a headache on a daily basis.
How do you manage your anxiety? Some take a cup of coffee, others light up a cigarette, and some drink wine (whiskey). These habits give a temporary “solution,” but the problem is still here.
Have you ever thought using essential oils to manage your problem? Lavender oil has over 150 active compounds, and it’s an outstanding antidepressant, anti-inflammatory agent and sedation agent.
Researches have shown that lavender essential oil serves great in the treatment of multiple conditions. It shows great outcomes when it’s used as a remedy for insomnia, alopecia, anxiety, stress and postoperative pain. Lavender has been studied for its antibacterial and antiviral effect, as reported by the University of Maryland Medical Center.
A study conducted at the University of Florida verified that lavender oil treats anxiety and lowers pulse rates. Surgery patients were treated with lavender-based aromatherapy, and it helped them decrease their stress levels before the surgery.
Use lavender oil to sleep properly, and neutralizes the negative impact of stress.
