Holistic Health : Aroma Essential Oils To Fight Stress & Anxiety

How many times has it happened that you are desperately seeking a good night’s sleep after a long day, yet your mind drifts away to the next morning routine and the 'to do' lists . All of us have been there and however hard we have tried counting a herd of sheep or made an attempt to go blank, our monkey brain has failed us. We end up waking in the morning feeling dull & grumpy yet pushing ourselves out of the bed to begin our day. The stress & anxiety level that gets accumulated throughout the day- be it for professional or personal reasons weighs pretty heavy on us and the daily grind continues.

While some of us have realized that physical & emotional well -being is a non- negotiable, every individual should inculcate a regime that practices a sense of well- being to stay healthy.

Adopt a Stress Management Regime

In Ayurveda, Pranayama (control of breath), Yoga & Meditation are ways to control your overall wellness of mind, body & soul. The art of deep breathing helps you relax. Ayurveda connects stress with Ojas ( essential energy in the body that is responsible for strength, vitality, liveliness & energy).

  • Commit yourself to an exercise regime to relax and rejuvenate. The art of deep breathing helps you relax.
  • Self- body massage ( Abhyanga)- A warm oil massage with Sesame or coconut oil before a bath helps relax the nervous system & relieves stress.
  • Feet Massage before sleep- A regular feet massage before you sleep relaxes the muscles, reduces stress and promotes sleep.
  • Aromatherapy- It has been prevalent since the time of Ayurveda where aromatic herbs were used to address various health concerns. Today researches have reinforced the therapeutic values of inhaling aroma essential oils for emotional well -being.

Diffuser Essential Oils

The sense of smell ( olfaction) is quite underrated compared to the other senses in the human body ( sight, hear, touch & taste) but it plays a major role to balance emotional well- being.

The other interesting aspect is that our sense of smell is closely linked with memory so odors evoke past experiences & emotions.

  • The parts of the brain receiving the information originating through our nasal passage to the olfactory membrane are the limbic system and cerebral cortex.
  • In the cortex, conscious processing, sense of judgement, recognition, and memory take place.
  • Any odor you breathe in affects your limbic system, which governs emotional processing, motivation, fear, pleasure, learning and memory.
  • Olfactory stimulation is the only sensory action that reaches the cerebral cortex directly. All other sensory information (sight, sound, touch, etc.) makes a stop first at another portion of the brain, the thalamus. This is why the sense of smell affect the way we think, learn, remember, create and express ourselves.
  • The limbic system establishes emotional states, so your overall mood can be affected by smell.

Science Behind Inhaling Aroma oils for Stress & Anxiety

To sum it up, inhaling Essential Oils stimulate the olfactory system and therefore the central nervous system which is why aroma inhalation can be a very effective stress management method.
