Here are some aromatherapy stress remedies to help you combat the stress in your life.  We know that stress can have devastating effects: it can make you ill, make you unhappy, make you frantic with running from one thing to the next, until you finally reach the point where you don't even know how to relax any more. It is easy to reduce these effects of stress by including aromatherapy in your daily routines.

Many people are starting to use some of these home remedies for stress because they're proven to relieve anxiety, relax tension and calm nerves. Aromatherapy cheers you up, while it also calms you down.

Aromatherapy Stress Reduction Technique:Take a Time Out

Here is an easy way to relieve stress that you can incorporate into any daily schedule. Take at least two 5-minute breaks a day to calm and center yourself. Stop what you are doing long enough that you can enjoy some deep breaths.  You can increase the time of these breaks as your tolerance increases and also enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy.

Put 2-3 drops of your favorite smelling essential oil on a tissue and take three slow deep breaths.  Wait a few minutes, then take three more deep breaths. Do this three times. This quick, easy stress remedy really does help bring you back down to earth.

Aromatherapy Stress Reduction Tips

Massage is a tremendously powerful antidote to stress. Incorporating aromatherapy into your massage oil amplifies its stress-reducing effects.
To make a simple aromatherapy massage oil, add 10 to 15 drops of any stress relieving essential oil to 2 tablespoons of any odourless vegetable oil.

  • Use aromatherapy on your kids. There's nothing like a scented bath to quiet squabbling children. Playing with water redirects their energy and stimulates their senses - and adding essential oils to calm their nerves can only be good for everyone in the house! (By the way, this works on you too!)
    To make a kid-friendly bath oil, add 5 drops of lavender, mandarin or chamomile essential oil to 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add to warm water and bath toys.
  • Make a cooling facial mist. When you're hot and cranky, a moment to cool off can really help. Simply spritz it over your face and neck, breathe deeply and give yourself a moment to step back from the stressor.
    To make an aromatherapy facial mist, add 10 drops essential oil to 1/2 cup (4oz) distilled water.  Hint: Make sure the bottle has a very fine mist spray so you get misted, not splattered.

Aromatherapy Stress Remedies Help

  • Aromatherapy stress remedies can help make your daily life happier and healthier, especially when used in conjunction with other positive lifestyle choices. It's also quick, easy and portable, and creating your own custom blended aromatherapy products can help relieve stress just because they're so much fun to make!
  • Get in the habit of using aromatherapy every day  - to calm your anger, lift your mood, soothe your nerves and enjoy a boost of energy every time you inhale essential oils. You and your whole family will benefit!
