Nila Stress Away Blend | 7 Best Essential Oils for Stress Relief

Did you know that the month of April marks the observance of Stress Awareness Month? This month is dedicated to raising awareness on the issue of stress, the negative impact that stress can have on our mental and physical wellbeing, as well as the importance of learning how to manage stress to achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

If you find yourself feeling burnt out and constantly on edge, it could be a sign that chronic stress is affecting your nervous system. When our bodies are constantly in "fight or flight" mode, this could lead to dysregulation and imbalances within our nervous system. Aromatherapy can offer a natural and effective approach to combating stress. Just using a few drops of essential oils is enough to transform your environment and your mindset, leaving tension behind and embracing a sense of calm.

If you want to experience how aromatherapy can help you alleviate stress, why not try Nila's Stress Away Blend? This is one of the best blends of premium essential oils for stress relief, designed by a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist to relieve stress, tension and fatigue, while supporting your mind, body and soul.

Using Essential Oils for Stress Relief

There are many ways and lifestyle changes that we can make to help reduce our stress levels. Ensuring we have enough sleep, engaging in regular exercise, eating a healthy diet and practicing mindfulness and meditation are all important ways that can help us to manage stress.

However, if our nervous systems are dysregulated, it may be difficult to take the first step. For example, if we are not sleeping well due to stress, this can create a vicious cycle where stress worsens sleep disturbances, and poor sleep further worsens stress. This is where aromatherapy can provide valuable support and help restore balance to our nervous system, ultimately improving our overall wellbeing. Think of aromatherapy as a supportive friend that you can lean on to help you take the first step, and a companion that will make the journey along the way much easier as well.

Aromatherapy, the practice of using aromatic plant extracts for therapeutic purposes, is a natural and effective way to reduce stress, alleviate tension and anxiety, promote relaxation, and improve your general wellbeing. Research has shown that essential oils can have a profound impact on our mind and body. Incorporating certain essential oils into your daily routine through methods like diffusion, topical application, or inhalation can offer significant benefits in managing our stress levels.

Essential oils use different pathways to promote relaxation and support our mental and physical health. When essential oils are diffused or inhaled, their volatile molecules interact with our olfactory system and exert a direct impact on our brain's limbic system. This area of the brain plays a central role in processing emotions, memories and regulating our mood. The direct interaction between the aromatic molecules of essential oils and our brain can evoke powerful emotional responses, depending on the specific properties of the essential oil. Alternatively, when we apply essential oils on our skin (always diluted appropriately with a carrier oil), the active compounds in essential oils will be absorbed into our bloodstream. From there, they circulate through our body and help to address not only our emotional wellbeing but also ease any physical discomforts such as muscle tension or inflammation.

Through these ways, using essential oils for stress relief can bring about feelings of calm and tranquility, mental clarity and overall health. In addition, the accessibility of essential oils means it is easy to incorporate into our lives, making it a valuable tool in stress management.
