Why Essential Oils Help With Sleep And Anxiety
Balanced Essentials products contain a synergistic blend of essential oils as it is often more effective for helping to promote symptomatic relief and healing than any single essential oil. The best pure essential oils to use in synergy to calm your nerves and give symptomatic relief for anxiety, worry and fear, include: Petitgrain, Vetiver, Cedarwood, Neroli, Orange, Lavender and Marjoram.
There are many benefits to using aromatherapy.
Vetiver is a mild sedative and promotes rest and relaxation and is helpful as a sleep aid!
Petitgrain lifts the mood and stabilizes your emotions. Petitgrain’s sedating and tranquilizing effect on the mind and emotions make it especially useful for inducing restful sleep.
Marjoram has a calming, sedative effect on the mind; useful for treating anxiety, agitation, depression and obsessions. Encourages self-nurturing and spiritual acceptance of deep loss.
Lavender essential oil can also help ease anxiety, promote relaxation, and calm the mind before bed. Several scientific studies have explored the use of linalool, the main component in lavender, for anxiety relief and sleep.
Neroli is known for being sedative, tranquilizing and relaxing when inhaled or diffused. Because of these properties, Neroli oil can also help with depression, insomnia and high blood pressure.
Cedarwood is a sedative, antiseptic, astringent, an expectorant and is good to help with feelings of anxiety and low self-esteem.
Sweet Orange has uplifting properties (like all the citrus oils family) but is also a calming and balancing oil. By providing a positive relief of tensions in the mind and body, sweet orange is very effective in assisting with insomnia and can improve sleep quality.
