Essential Oil Treatments for Shock

From a medical perspective, shock is an acute state whereby oxygenated blood cannot reach vital organs and tissues due to a sudden drop in blood pressure, often triggered by an allergic reaction, intense trauma or emotional distress, or loss of blood; symptoms include a rapid heartbeat, pallid and clammy appearance, dilated pupils and irregular breathing.

A massage oil can be prepared from lemon, geranium, lavender and chamomile, with a vegetable oil carrier, that can be applied and massaged into the whole body before sleep to help alleviate the symptoms of shock. Lavender and chamomile have been used across continents as relaxing and restorative remedies for centuries.
