Essential Oils That Will Help You Feel Calm

Calm and Relax….

It’s no mystery that our modern-day lifestyles are contributing to this increase in stress that we’re seeing.

Even if you’re not normally a stressed person, likely there are times you’d benefit from something calming.

Essential oils can be big savers when you feel you need to center and balance and one drop goes a long way.

Of course before use, read the safety guide


1. lavender—for a clear mind

You may already love lavender’s light floral fragrance. And it’s no wonder because its benefits are abundant. Among lavender’s many offerings is its proven calming effect.   Though lavender helps people get more restful sleep, it doesn’t have a sedative effect. This makes it perfect if you want to go into your day with a calm and clear mind. We recommend putting some lavender in your diffuser while you get ready in the morning or even using a lavender water spray to scent your clothing.

Even better: try lavender oil in a massage for double the benefits. Some studies have shown that massage with lavender oil seems to calm more than massage alone.

2. frankincense—for well being

Frankincense is a popular oil for easing tension and calming. It’s said to create a sense of euphoria when used as incense, but you can also add two-three drops in your vaporizer, or simply add a bit to a pan of boiling water and then inhale the steam.

3. cedar wood—to wind down at night

You may have heard that cedar wood makes a great natural insect repellant, so it may seem strange to see it listed here, as a calming oil.

This oil is considered excellent for promoting restful sleep, something that can help calm you down when you’re feeling stressed.

Many herbal practitioners recommend this one to help with more restful sleep, because it’s a good source of “sesquiterpenes.” To help yourself slip into sleep, add just a drop of cedar wood oil to a carrier oil that works for your particular skin type. Massage your cheek bones, between your eye brows, and the sides of your temples. This is also a fun thing to do with a partner. You’ll be gliding into dreamland in no time.

4. vetiver—to ease restless thoughts

This oil is a star when it comes to calming. Similar to cedar wood, vetiver is very high in sesquiterpenes. Herbalists recommend combining vetiver with cedar wood and even a little juniper to calm and ease symptoms like unease or a lump in the throat.

We recommend using vetiver at work to help you relax while also being productive.

And a bonus point- Vetiver has a big role in creating renew skin cells so here’s a drop of anti-aging!

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life! All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement. In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important. The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs. I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
