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.
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.
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.
