So many of my massage clients come to me with feelings of stress and anxiety, I felt I had to create a product that would work to release these feelings. So here it is: a wonderfully fragrant blend of lavender, ylang ylang, frankincense, chamomile, orange & bergamot essential oils, chosen for their therapeutic ability to lift mood and calm tension. I have selected the following oils for these reasons:
Frankincense: an excellent oil for calming a busy mind, a very effective sedative that induces a feeling of mental peace, relaxation, and satisfaction, and helps relieve anxiety, anger, and stress.
Chamomile: very effective in fighting depression and for raising spirits. It eliminates feelings of sadness, depression, disappointment, and sluggishness while inducing a sort of happy or charged feeling, therefore helping to overcome depression and bringing about a good mood.
Sweet Orange: also antidepressant, the smell of orange essential oil reminds you of happy moments and brings pleasant thoughts to mind. It creates a happy, relaxed feeling and works as a mood lifter, perfect for people who suffer from depression or chronic anxiety. It is shown to reduce heart rates and cortisol levels and alleviate anxiety, anger and depression.
Bergamot: antidepressant and stimulating in nature, it creates a feeling of freshness, joy and energy in cases of sadness and depression by improving the circulation of the blood. It also stimulates hormonal secretions, thereby helping to maintain proper metabolic rates, resulting in lowering of blood sugar. The hormonal impact of bergamot essential oil is part of the reason that it is so powerful on these neurological and mental conditions. It soothes nerves and reduces nervous tension, anxiety, and stress, high blood pressure, insomnia, and depression.
