How to Use Aromatherapy to Manage Stress and Anxiety

Aromatherapy has been given a bit of a bad rap. Mostly this is due to overeager practitioners who grant the practice qualities that it cannot possibly back up.

You have every reason to be skeptical of claims about aromatherapy curing diseases like diabetes or cancer, but that doesn’t mean that has no benefits.

But, before you dismiss aromatherapy out of hand as being founded on quack science, there are a number of verifiable claims that the practice can demonstrate, particularly when it comes to relieving stress and anxiety.

How Aromatherapy Works

It’s long been understood that olfactory is the most complex of our senses. Smell receptors in the nose send signals through the nervous system directly to the limbic system in the brain. This is the part of the brain that controls emotions like fear as well as the receptors of pain.

Certain aromas, when used effectively, have been clearly shown to help reduce depression and anxiety. Obviously, this is no substitute for medicine or therapeutic care, but it can provide a little extra natural push when you need it.

Did you know that vanilla can help you with insomnia?  Or that orange has actually been shown to help reduce the effects of PTSD? FragranceX has put together a useful visual that has some of the most healing aromatherapeutic components, which are all natural. It also includes how best to use them, whether in a spray, a diffuser, or just through tea.
