It’s almost impossible to avoid stress. It’s everywhere – in the office, at home, and every time you go out. Anxiety is a common ailment these days, and some people struggle with a headache on a daily basis.
How do you handle your anxiety? Some drink a cup of coffee, others light up a cigarette, and some drink wine (whiskey). These habits provide a temporary “solution,” but the problem is still here.
Have you ever considered using essential oils to treat your problem? Lavender oil has over 150 active compounds, and it’s an excellent antidepressant, anti-inflammatory agent and sedation agent.
Studies have shown that lavender essential oil works great in the treatment of many conditions. It shows great results when used as a remedy for insomnia, alopecia, anxiety, stress and postoperative pain. Lavender has been examined for its antibacterial and antiviral effect, as reported by the University of Maryland Medical Center.
A study conducted at the University of Florida confirmed that lavender oil treats anxiety and lowers pulse rates. Surgery patients were treated with lavender-based aromatherapy, and it helped them reduce their stress levels before the surgery.
