I’ve talked about anxiety and stress on my blog before and also did a post on Natural Remedies for Anxiety and Stress a year ago. So, I wanted to do a little bit of a follow up on that. I still recommend all of the products in that post but I am constantly trying new things and researching myriad ways to help cope with anxiety. I deal with chronic pain and health issues that have caused my body to be in a some-what of a constant fight or flight mode and this does not make for an easy time. I’m naturally a very sensitive person. When you combine that with chronic pain, well let’s just say I struggle with severe anxiety and often very bad panic attacks. I have a ” little” bit of an obsession with all things aromatherapy. It’s amazing to me how a quick sniff of a beautiful essential oil can lift ones mood or calm ones senses. I never cease to be fascinated by the immense benefits of aromatherapy!
I’m so happy to share with all of you the blends that I currently love and carry around with me in my bag at all times:
- Badger Balm Stress Soother - key ingredients: tangerine, rosemary, roman chamomile, cedarwood, spearmint. benefits: “Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil deeply moisturizes while pure essential oils uplift and encourage you. In traditional aromatherapy, Rosemary instills clear thinking and confidence; Tangerine and Spearmint are uplifting and cheering; Cedarwood helps build inner strength; Roman Chamomile and Lavender are soothing and relaxing, and Rose is all about love and forgiveness.”
- H. Gillerman Organics Stress Remedy – key ingredients: lavender, vetiver, red mandarin, sandalwood, clary sage, tangerine, blood orange. benefits: “This blend helps you find the composure to make thoughtful choices, so your day can flow smoothly.

- Bach Rescue Remedy Spray – key ingredients: star of bethlehem, rock rose, cherry plum. benefits: “has been used successfully on stressful days where we suffer from impatience, tension and pressure.
