This may appear to be a kind of strange heading, but we want it to be differentiated from the severe medical condition of "shock".
What we are talking about here are things that can give your body a type of 'emotional' shock. Things like hearing bad news, extreme weather changes (impending storms, or extreme heat and cold, etc.) or seeing something bad happen to another person - such as an injury or accident.
Even seeing a 'close call' can be shocking to ones emotional being. You know, things that can evoke a 'shocking' attitude within yourself or others around you.
Oils that can produce a calming affect will often help you and those around you through the next few hours until things settle down and can get back to normal.
Of course - Lavender is a must to try. (Don't you carry a little vial in your pocket or purse? If not, it might be a good idea to always have Lavender on hand!)
Other oils that can be used include: Neroli, Rose, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Lemon, Geranium and Roman Chamomile.
Simply smell from the bottle or place a few drops on a cotton ball, tissue or use a Nasal Inhalers. If you feel better with a back or foot rub, mix any of these oils with a little bit of a carrier oil and enjoy giving or getting a massage.
If you have oils you have used in this type of situation please let us know. We'd love to pass along the suggestions.
