Although stress is part of everyday life it can have a powerful effect on the body taking its toll on our mental and physical well-being. It can cause symptoms such as anxiety, panic attacks, muscular tension, headaches, poor sleep and diet, elevated blood pressure, heart palpitations, worry about the future, and many more. Too much stress can also overwork the adrenal glands. Repeated release of an overabundance of adrenaline from these glands eventually disrupts the delicate balance of your brain chemistry and hormonal production. Initially this will make you feel like you are always on edge. Eventually the adrenal glands become exhausted and the opposite reaction occurs. You become tired, sluggish, listless and emotions may easily fly out of control.
It is not always easy to avoid stress, but there are things you can try to reduce stress levels when dealing with life's challenges. Fortunately, aromatherapy offers some of the best types of natural prescriptions for easing stress. Aromatherapy is the practice of using natural oils extracted from parts of a plant: flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots & any other useful part. When extracted, these healing oils enhance an individual's psychological & physical well-being.
Aromatherapy oils have various healing properties and can help to reduce stress & anxiety, provide comfort from panic attacks, up-lift your mood, increase energy, improve sleep, relieve muscular tension, support the immune system & many other benefits.
