Stress is an emotional or mental state, characterized by a subjective feeling of pressure, strain or tension, often related to a specific object, person or event, which are typically adverse or especially demanding for the individual concerned. Stress can be a transient, short-term temporary state that is alleviated upon the completion/passing of a particular trigger, or a perpetual feeling/state of being, for instance relating to the demands of one’s employment, lifestyle, or relationships. Whilst it is an emotional/mental state, stress is also a physical response and has many physical symptoms, including nausea, diarrhea, and fatigue, as the body releases chemicals into the blood, which can lead to emotional and physical health problems in the long-term, such as a compromised immune system. Many essential oils are effective at relieving stress, as they directly affect the brain, helping to balance mood and calm the nerves.
