Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I wanted to share the great results I have had using Lavender essential oil to handle my daily stresses in the work environment.

I have been under extreme pressure to get things done quickly and efficiently for large projects at work. I was getting home with headaches and a stiff neck. I was also extremely irritable due to tiredness, and my mind would just keep racing into the next steps at work.

Then I recognized my stresses and immediately grabbed my essential oils to seek relief. Lavender essential oil has been a lifesaver. I diffuse a few drops in the orb diffuser while working. I love it because it is not too overpowering and does not overwhelm my coworkers, as we work in an open-space environment.

I rub a few diluted drops on my neck and feel an immediate relief towards calmness. My mood shifts from "I cannot do all of this... and by when?" to "Okay, I can accomplish this immediately and work on finishing that by...."

My outlook changes, and my workload seems manageable just a few minutes after applying the Lavender oil directly on my skin. I went from reviewing a large report over 150 pages long (which initially looked impossible) to tackling a few chapters a day and completing the task in record time.

In the evening I add some epsom salts with a few drops of Lavender essential oil to my bath and feel like all the worries are being washed away. Thoughts of an easy evening start to drift into my mind.

I spray my bed linens using a few drops of Lavender essential oil in distilled water with a pinch of salt. This helps me to fall asleep fast and not think of all the things I still have to do at work. My mind basically shuts off so I can get a good night's rest. My hubby reaps the benefits as well.

Before turning in at night, I will diffuse a few drops of Lavender essential oil at my bedside. Doing so gives me the best sleep and helps me awaken ready to face a new day with all of life's challenges ahead of me.

2.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,sleep,insomnia-/-sleeplessness,anxiety-/-worry,headache — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy]....

3.Associated topics: headache — "Peppermint and its active ingredient menthol have long been used for the treatment of various pain conditions including headache.... Menthol solution can be an efficacious, safe and tolerable therapeutic option for the abortive treatment of migraine."Link
4.Associated topics: cortisol — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
5.Associated topics: anxiety-/-worry — "Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link
6.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry — "A number of essential oils are currently in use as aromatherapy agents to relieve anxiety, stress, and depression. Popular anxiolytic oils include lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), rose (Rosa damascena), orange (Citrus sinensis), bergamot (Citrus aurantium), lemon (Citrus limon), sandalwood (Santalum album), clary sage (Salvia sclarea), Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), and rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium spp.)."Link
7.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
8.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry,relaxation-/-rest — "The ylang ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and a significant increase of skin temperature. At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group. These findings are likely to represent a relaxing effect of the ylang ylang oil and provide some evidence for the usage of the ylang ylang oil in aromatherapy such as causing a relief of depression and stress in humans."Link
