Another look in between the covers of my book
Stress in the 2ist century, in Western life, is pretty much the cause all kind of disease.
“If you ask what is the single most important key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry, stress and tension. And if you didn’t ask me, I’d still have to say it.”
George Burns, Actor
There you go – stop worrying and stressing.
Live longer, and prosper.
By simply using essential oils in any matter, you will give your brain and chance to refocus and change the current vibe.
* Just open a bottle of oil and have a big sniff. Your brain is in charge of your body so by re-calibrating your thought patterns you have a better chance of having a healthier stress-free body too.
* Put a few drops of an oil in the bottom of the shower before and/or after work, or a stressful day, to help you come down off your high cortisone levels. Once again, give you brain and body a wake-up call to release tension on a daily basis
* Chronic stress can lead to chronic (and acute) disease and we often find out too late. Stress and worry won’t help change your situation so you’ll have to change it from the inside out.
* Have a massage or make your own body oil to completely rejuvenate your body and cleanse your aura
What oils are great to use to minimise stress?
The Chamomiles – Roman and German
Both these oils often come in a 3 % blend as they are more expensive than most essential oils. See my article for more info on 3% blends in jojoba. Use these oils straight from the bottle like a perfume, but if you find them as a 100% pure oil just use them in the same ratios as you would with other oils.
Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis) is soft, syrupy and sweet and is a great oil for cramping and tension.
German chamomile has a dark blue colour and is deeply herbaceous smelling. This oil is good for heat and inflammation.
Marjoram is second to lavender for me. I use this oil frequently as it has such wonderful properties. Not only is it a great oil for stress and anxiety, it is a must-have for muscle soreness. It has a strong scent but manages to blend so well with all the other oils and it is an ancient herb that has lasted through the ages.
This oil also helps induce sleep, is great for treating grief, and helps calm an overactive mind. It is the oil of relief.
