I have dealt with both. I also have a member of my family who suffers from anxiety issues and am always searching for natural solutions to help them. There are dietary changes you can do, as well as exercise and other tactics. However, there are still other people who need some extra help and don’t want to go on medication.
The other day, I accidentally discovered an essential oil combination that acts like an anti-anxiety med (may or may not begin and end in the letter X). I’ve written about Young Living’s Vetiver before and using it for stress and anxiety. Because Vetiver is a thick oil, I was putting it in a roller bottle with a carrier oil so I could apply it easier.
I love the smell of Vetiver, so when some got on my fingers, I just wiped it on my neck. Since I wanted to make sure the roller attachment worked, I decided to test it on the bottom of my feet. It did and I capped it and went about my morning routine. I like to wear Young Living’s Valor and Stress Away as perfume during the day. Not thinking about the Vetiver I had applied only 30 minutes earlier, I applied the Valor roll-on to my spine and Young Living’s Stress Away as a perfume to my neck, chest and wrists.
All day long, I was completely relaxed. Not tired or sleepy or disoriented. It was just a very calm, relaxed feeling. I think World War 3 could have broken out and it would not have bothered me in the least. I’m usually a very upbeat, energetic person, but that day, I was very, very calm. It finally dawned on me that I had applied 3 oils that were grounding and calming.
If you have any anxiety or stress-related problems, I HIGHLY recommend you try this for yourself. It sure beats taking a medication with side effects and it works!
