Essential Oil Treatments for Stress-Related / Nervous Tension

Stress-related and nervous tension conditions are a form of anxiety brought on by intense emotional and/or mental strain, and have numerous debilitating symptoms. A lavender oil bath has a significant stress-reducing effect, and heart problems related to stress can also be treated with massage using melissa, neroli, lavender and ylang-ylang, which help to normalize blood pressure.

Geranium helps to balance and calm the mind, and thus relieve stress and anxiety. Headaches caused by nervous tension are also helped by bergamot, chamomile, lavender, neroli, jasmine and ylang ylang. Spearmint oil is also excellent for treating stress-related neural conditions. Use of lavender to calm and soothe dates back to the ancient Romans, and is still one of the most popular ‘calming’ remedies.
