Essential Oils came to the rescue for this traveler yesterday!

Once again I got a chance to see the wonderful calming powers of a few of my essential oils. Not that I needed proof after 13 years of using these precious oils, but I will say that these experiences were pretty dramatic, consistent and quite wonderful.

On the first leg of my journey while the plane was sitting on the tarmac waiting for take off, two guys sitting behind me were getting pretty rowdy. Acting more like young teenagers, they were beginning to bounce around in their seats, kicking my seat, you get the picture.

I pulled out my oils and wiped on a good dose of the White Angelica oil blend all over my head, neck shoulders, torso, arms and legs. I followed this with the Peace & Calming oil blend on the back of my neck and inhaled deeply.

I noticed a few minutes later that they guys were silent, and there had been no movement, at all, for awhile. I glanced back and saw they were both sound asleep! I had a very peaceful plane ride after that!

Peace & Calming was originally made for calming hyperactive kids. It sure worked for me, and the 'kids' behind me! I was just the human diffuser!

I applied a few drops of the White Angelica because I wanted a sense of protection and help not being so annoyed at having my seat kicked, by a very large and long legged "kid!"

One the 2nd leg of my journey, we ended up sitting in the plane for 4 hours BEFORE taking off! Everyone was restless after the 1st time we went back to the terminal, including the 2 and 4 year olds sitting in front of me. I was so grateful to have my oils with me!

I used a few drops of the Valor oil blend on my wrists for calming, grounding and balancing myself, since I was a bit antsy. I followed with applying Peace & Calming and White Angelica. Within a few minutes, I noticed that the kids had settled down, and so had I!

Throughout the 4 hours of sitting and waiting, and then the 2 hours in the air, the kids stirred quite a number of times. Can you imagine keeping a 2 year old strapped in his seat for 6 hours?

Each time they even began to increase their volume, I pulled out my oils and used them.

Each time I settled down, so did the kids. It was really remarkable!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: breathing-/-inhale — "In confirming the presence of peripheral airways dysfunction in nonsmokers with uncomplicated common colds, our data imply that the changes can be modified favorably by short-term aromatics inhalation."Link
2.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
3.Associated topics: breathing-/-inhale — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
4.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
5.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry — "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].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
6.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings,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
7.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

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
