Emotional Wellbeing - Helping to bust angst and stress

Fact or fiction? According to research[1] by Puressentiel - – the brains behind evidence backed essential oils - stress has the greatest impact on sleep (45%), relationships (32%) and weight gain (38%).

While essential oils help treat various mild health troubles, they also relieve the mind and regulate emotional ups and downs. Here are a few tips from Dr Tim Bond at - on how to help tackle anxiety, stress and take care of your emotions.

#1. Angst busting:

Roman chamomile helps calm anxiety and shocks to the nervous system.

Tip: Blend 2 drops of Roman chamomile essential oil + 5 drops of sweet almond plant oil, gently massaging into the solar plexus. The solar plexus — also called the celiac plexus — is a complex system of radiating nerves and ganglia. It's found in the pit of the stomach in front of the aorta. It's part of the sympathetic nervous system.

#2. To calm feelings of anger:

Marjoram is the “zen queen”: it calms and rebalances the mind, and helps reduce mood disorders.

Tip: Massage 5 drops of marjoram essential oil + 15 drops of sweet almond plant into the solar plexus and plantar arch whenever you feel anger coming on, or twice a day (morning and midday) during periods of conflict.

The plantar arch is technically called a circulatory anastomosis. That’s the connection between two blood vessels, or between veins and between an artery and a vein and formed from:

  • The deep plantar artery - the dorsal artery of the foot and the lateral plantar artery

#3. Stress buster:

Petitgrain bigarade has a relaxing effect. It helps calm all nervous imbalances.

Tip: Three or four times per day, inhale a blend of 2 drops of petitgrain bigarade essential oil diluted in 2 drops of sweet almond plant oil placed on the inside of your wrists.
