Aromatherapy has grown in popularity over the last few years. Essential oils have become a part of modern treatment for anxiety disorders. Aromatherapy is not new and has a long standing history in spas and other establishments to promote relaxation.
In my personal life, I have incorporated lavender and chamomile into my relaxation routine. Lavender essential oil in the diffuser has been my go to right before bed after a stressful day. The wonderful smell of lavender provides me a sense of calm for a restful night. Even during hectic moments in the household, I will turn on the diffuser to reduce a stressful situation. Another all time favorite of mine, is chamomile. Chamomile has been my tea of choice when I am suffering from painful cramps or when I am wired at 2 am. The tea soothes my stomach and calms my nerves, allowing me to relax.
