Aromatherapy Recipes for Anxiety

Essential Oil Blends for Anxiety

These aromatherapy recipes may help during times of anxiety.

When selecting and using essential oils, be sure to follow all safety precautions and remember that aromatherapy should not be used as a substitute for proper medical treatment.

Blend #1

Linalyl Acetate is an ester that is found in the trio of essential oils included in this anxiety blend. Linalyl acetate can be helpful in situations of stress, anxiety and depression. Bergamot is a citrus with a beautifully distinctive citrus aroma that contains Linalyl Acetate and smells delightful when combined with clary sage and lavender essential oils.

Blend #2

Sandalwood Essential Oil is not only an aromatically exquisite essential oil, but it can be grounding and help soothe anxiety. Combined with Bergamot Essential Oil, this simple blend can help support those enduring periods of anxiety.

Blend #3

Roman Chamomile Essential Oil can be especially helpful in combating the feelings of anxiety. Petitgrain Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the bitter orange tree (it is not phototoxic). It helps to balance out the sweet, floral aroma of Roman Chamomile Essential Oil. Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil is moderately grounding, calming and also helps to bring balance to the aroma of this anxiety essential oil blend.

Blend #4

Mandarin Essential Oil is a gentle citrus essential oil that is uplifting without being stimulating in this blend. Rose Essential Oil is a powerful essential oil that can help soothe feelings of anxiety, especially due to feelings that may stem from grief, guilt or loss. Lavender Essential Oil works synergistically with the mandarin and rose essential oils to help ease anxiety. Vetiver Essential Oil is a base note that is particularly grounding. It can also help balance the aroma of the blend. If you don't particularly like the aroma of Vetiver Essential Oil, you can substitute Atlas Cedarwood, Sandalwood or Patchouli Essential Oil.
