Mood Elevating Bath

Filed under: Depression, Anxiety — Administrator @ 10:27 am

Stumble it!

As you prepare your bath, close the window and door to prevent the oil vapors from escaping. Fill the bathtub with warm/hot water.

To soften your skin and remove impurities, dissolve 1 cup of epsom salt in the bath water. Then dilute the Essential Oils in the Massage Oil. Pour the blend into the water.

Swirl the water to dispersze the oil evenly. Enter the bath immediately, since Essential Oils evaporate quickly. Relax and enjoy the bath for at least 30 minutes.

Use Rose Essential Oil for Depression and Fatigue

Filed under: Depression, Anxiety — Administrator @ 10:37 am

Stumble it!

Rose oil is one of the most popular Essential Oils. It has a rich floral fragrance conjuring up images of romance, luxury and pampering. More importantly its properties are said to be:

  • Antidepressant
  • Calming, Soothing, Relaxing, Restful
  • Sensuous, Aphrodisiac
  • Uplifting
  • Balancing
  • Improves confidence
  • Reduces fatigue, stress and exhaustion

Rose oil is made from Rose petals. As you can imagine it takes a lot of petals to produce a very small amount of oil. Estimates suggest that it may take a ton of petals to produce 300 grams of Rose Oil.

Unfortunately the real McCoy is very expensive, however you can buy the more affordable Rose Geranium (also known as Rose-French oil) which seems to work almost as well at one-tenth of the price. It contains many of the same ingredients as Rose – geraniol, linalool and citronellol – and it has similar properties and scent.

I use it as a perfume when I’m going out (great for dates) or when I feel tired or agitated. I have found it works extremely well. If I have a meeting that might be stressful or a speaking engagement I put a drop or two on my wrist and sniff my wrist whenever I feel my mood or energy levels drop.

According to Medical Aromatherapist, Tania Cottew three drops of Rose Geranium oil are equivalent to one drop of Rose Oil for the emotional aspects such as Depression – hmmm maybe it’s not such a bargain after all!

Applying Essential Oils direct to the skin is not usually recommended, however Rose Geranium does not inflame the skin as other Essential Oils can. If your skin is sensitive I suggest you place a few drops of the oil on a tissue or hanky and sniff this or pop it in your top pocket. You can also place this by your pillow for an improved night’s sleep. Alternatively you can add Rose Geranium to a Carrier Oil such as Almond oil and apply this directly to your skin.

Anti-Anxiety Aromatherapy Recipe Blend

Filed under: Depression, Anxiety — Administrator @ 9:04 pm

Stumble it!

Add Essential Oils to a clean dark glass bottle. Gently blend. Add a few drops to a scent ring, or drizzle some into a piece of aromatherapy jewelry, inhale directly from the bottle (don’t get any on your nose), or add to an Aroma Lamp. You can also add some oil to a cotton ball, place the cotton ball on a plate and let evaporate into a room.

Blends to Ease the Winter Blues


Stumble it!

Lack of greenery, gray skies, a snow-covered world, reduced activity and the cold temperatures of winter can all lead to what is known as the “Winter Blues.” The Winter Blues involve feelings of sadness, Depression and loss of energy.

The below blends can help ease the symptoms of the winter blues. Citrus oils are emphasized because they are energizing and uplifting oils. Orange, Lemon and Grapefruit oils are inexpensive (especially Orange) and are also favored by many people, so your whole household may enjoy the aroma.

When selecting and using oils, be sure to follow all safety precautions and remember that aromatherapy should not be used as a substitute for proper medical treatment.

Blend #1

Blend #2

Blend #3

Blend #4

Blend #5

Blend #6

Directions: Select one of the blends shown above. Then, choose which method you’d like to use the blend – Diffuser, bath oil, massage oil or air freshener

Aromatherapy for Occasional Minor Depression

Filed under: General Aromatherapy Articles, Depression, Anxiety — Administrator @ 11:37 am

Stumble it!

As I look out the window, I’m thinking how dreary it is right now. It’s pouring rain, the sky is gray, and the trees have lost most of their leaves. Sigh.

I need something to lift this Blue mood Im in! As usual, aromatherapy comes to the rescue. This article gives a brief introduction to various Essential Oils that are known for their mood elevation abilities. By the end of the article, you should have a better sense of where to cast your nose for help the next time you feel down.

My favorite mood elevator is Rose Essential Oil (rosa damascena). One drop of this heavenly scent in a Diffuser is potent enough to make me feel happy! However, Rose Essential Oil is extremely expensive.

A cheaper (although still not cheap) alternative to Rose Essential Oil is Geranium (pelargonium graveolens), sometimes called Rose Geranium. When you smell Geranium Essential Oil, you wont believe how much it smells like Rose Essential Oil! And again, one drop in a Diffuser is plenty, making it a bit economical.

Roman Chamomile Essential Oil (anthemis nobilis) is renowned for its ability to calm people down. It can be somewhat sedating, so use it only when you know you dont have to be completely alert. Don’t confuse Roman Chamomile with German Chamomile (matricaria recutita). They are very different Essential Oils.

Lavender Essential Oil (lavandula augustifolia) is also wonderful for making happy thoughts. It smells so clean and fresh.

The citrus oils are also known as mood elevators. One of my favorite citrus Essential Oils is Mandarin (citrus reticulata). Don’t confuse Mandarin Essential Oil with Tangerine Essential Oil. Even though they smell similar, Tangerine Essential Oil does not have the same chemical makeup that makes Mandarin oil so good for Anxiety.

Although I love the scent of Patchouli (pogostemon cablin) and Vetiver (vetiveria zizanoides) Essential Oils, I wouldnt use them on a day when I need my mood lifted. They are known as dark, heavy, earthy scents and aren’t the best for feeling happier when you feel a bit down.

A quick look at some of my references gives a list of Essential Oils that are known as mood elevators. They are the kinds of oils that give you a “feel good feeling” when you have a mild case of the blues. Here are some other Essential Oils recommended for “despondency” by Shirley Price in her Aromatherapy Workbook:

Bergamot, Neroli and Petitgrain (all are varieties of citrus aurantium)

Clary Sage (salvia sclarea)

Coriander (coriandrum sativum)

Cypress (cupressus sempervirens)

Ginger (zingiber officinale)

Melissa (Melissa officinalis)

Niaouli (Melaleuca quinquenervia)

Rosewood (aniba rosaeodora)

Sandalwood (santalum album)

Ylang Ylang (cananga odorata)

There are other mood elevating Essential Oils out there, and the fun of aromatherapy is in the discovery of how a particular Essential Oil affects you. You might want to compile your own personal mood elevating Essential Oils list so that it’s handy the next time you feel a bit down.

This is definitely a case where I like to use my tea light Candle oil and water Diffuser, as it makes the scent last a long time. As a cautionary note, remember not to take any of these oils internally or use them on your skin until you research them thoroughly. Not all Essential Oils can be taken internally and/or used topically.

Remember that these oils are traditionally used for an occasional feeling of minor Depression, sadness or Anxiety or just feeling “down in the dumps”. If you have a serious case of major Depression, you need to be under a doctors care.
