Other symptoms include high blood pressure, a quick heart rate, abnormal breathing patterns, sleeplessness, muscle tension/pain, and digestive issues. Chronic untreated anxiety increases the chance of developing IBS, inflammatory bowel disease, systemic inflammation, arthritis, autoimmune illnesses, and heart disease. Essential oils for anxiety medications may be helpful for some people, but they aren’t for everyone. They also have specific unfavourable side effects, including sleeplessness, dizziness, blurred vision, nausea, low libido or sexual dysfunction, headaches, memory loss or difficulty to focus, speech and coordination issues, and digestive issues. As a result, natural cures and alternative therapies for living with anxiety and treating its symptoms are becoming increasingly popular.

Egyptians utilised this ancient oil as a gift to the sun deity Ra thousands of years ago. Because of its calming effects, chamomile is believed to lessen feelings of irritation and overwhelm. It can help with PMS (premenstrual syndrome) and sleeplessness symptoms. It can help you achieve profound relaxation and well-being as a relaxing agent.

It’s been used for centuries to elicit sensations of ecstasy, joy, and vitality. It’s also an effective cure for anxiety and suppressed emotions. It’s also great for immune support and detoxification because its active ingredients help lymphatic drainage.
Vetiver (Vetivera zizanioides)
Because of its calming and anchoring properties, the “Oil of Tranquility” is also known as the “fragrance of the soil” among Yogis. Emotional tension, anxiety, trauma, and panic attacks are all treated by aromatherapy. As a sedative, it also aids in the treatment of insomnia. Vetiver is frequently used as a study and concentration aid, particularly by people with ADD and ADHD.
Jasmine (Jasminum officinale, Jasminum grandiflorum)
This floral-scented oil has long been used in Asia as a natural remedy for emotional distress, anxiety, sadness, and sleep problems. Yogis use jasmine for emotional balance, fear relief, and mood enhancement. Jasmine oil, as an aphrodisiac, can also be used to treat decreased libido. It can also aid with hormonal balance and may even help with PMS symptoms.
Sandalwood (Santalum spicatum, Santalum album)
Sandalwood has been utilised as a meditation aid by Indian, Greek, Egyptian, and Roman cultures for thousands of years because of its relaxing and balancing properties. Yogis use this oil to develop intuition and inner wisdom. It can also be done as a narcotic to assist your anxious dog in relaxing. It’s also an antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, immunological stimulant, and hormone balancer.
Try mixing a few drops of oil into unscented body lotion or spritzing an essential oils for anxiety spray straight over frequently used linen, a couch, or a blanket. You can also apply oils directly to your skin in places like your wrists, behind your ears, neck, and soles of your feet.
