Taming Anxiety with Neroli Essential Oil

By August 6, 2013

Follow me on:

An aromatherapy remedy with a sweet and spicy aroma, neroli essential oil is sometimes used to ease anxiety. Proponents claim that breathing in the scent of this essential oil (sourced from the flowers of the bitter orange tree) can help promote calm and stop excessive worrying.

Although research on the health effects of neroli essential oil is fairly limited, there's some evidence that neroli may aid in the treatment of anxiety. In a 2013 study published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, for example, an aromatherapy blend containing neroli essential oil was found to reduce anxiety and alleviate sleep problems in a group of coronary angioplasty patients.

A number of other essential oils may offer natural anxiety relief. For instance, studies show that both lavender oil and rose oils may possess calming properties.

To find out more about the health benefits of neroli, read my article on Neroli Oil.

Essentially, Aromatherapy can also do a lot in relieving stress by providing relief to the emotional aspect rather than the physiological. If you keep on thinking of eliminating stress and perform measures in order to give your mind with calmness, you can instantly provide change to your present state. Going for Aromatherapy for a certain period of time can surely help you prevent stress. This kind of treatment is based on using scents and essential oils that can have tranquilizing effects which can provide peace of mind and stress as well as stress free body and mind.
