There are many causes of anxiety. Fear of the unknown and apprehension can be causes: some that come to mind include going back to school, or starting school, whether preschool or all the way to college; moving; stressful events at home or work.
Health concerns can cause tension and disturbed sleep.
Occasionally anxiety can even bring on a Panic attack. Where you feel your chest tighten and heart beat quicken, and breathing can be affected. Panics like these are extreme.
Chronic anxiety though can weaken you immune system leaving you open for more and susceptible to diseases.
The best way to avoid anxiety is trying to change the things that give you stress. This is not always possible. So the next thing is trying to make things less stressful.
Using essential oils can help you prepare mentally for uncertainties by allowing you to relax and strengthen you emotional stamina. During times of stress, take time to relax and rest, to help calm your nerves.
Essential oils known to help reduce anxiety include Bergamot, Cedarwood, Roman Chamomile, Clary Sage,Coriander, Frankincense, Geranium, Jasmine, Juniper, Marjoram, Neroli, Orange, Patchouli, Rose, Rosewood, Vetiver and Ylang ylang.
