I have talked (and raved) about the True Relaxation Stress Remedy for quite some time now, so imagine my surprise when I realized I never dedicated an entire post to this miracle worker? Shame on me. This oil deserves so much praise and I am going to give it just that. I am a huge fan of Hope Gillerman and am very passionate about spreading the word about how important essential oils are.
I don’t go a day without using Essential Oils in one way or another. There are so many ways to use them and I will share below the many ways I use this particular potent oil blend. I recommend this for anyone with stress, nervousness, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, or if you just want to smell lovely! I also highly recommend checking out all of the blends of Hope Gillerman! I have reviews coming up soon for the Sinus Remedy and Jaw Clenching Remedy which I use daily as well.

Suffering from Anxiety, Stress, Panic Attacks?
I have personally found the Stress Remedy blend to be very helpful in both minor and severe situations involving stressful situations in my life. I have spoken openly on my blog about many of my health issues, including panic disorder which I have had on and off for years. In the past year, the panic came back stronger than ever and I have been doing whatever I can do to find natural ways to remedy the panic.
Of course I cannot tell anyone what will and work for them but I can share with you what has worked for me and what I have seen work for people around me. This blend is in my top 3 favorite Essential Oil blends out there and if you had any idea how many single and essential oils blends I own, you would know how much that means. This is a blend I can absolutely not be without and would (and do) recommend to anyone struggling with any type of anxiety, be it minor or severe.
I had a situation arise recently where I was in a public place and out of nowhere had a panic attack just hit me. If you’ve ever experienced a panic attack, you will know that feeling of overwhelming and all-consuming fear that comes over you and the confusion about why this is happening. Instead of taking prescription medicines, I reached for my Stress Remedy and I, albeit a bit franticly and shakily, dropped 2-3 drops into my hands, rubbed them together, and put them in front of my face. I sat there and just took deep breaths, over and over again. I then took my scarf which was around my neck and added another drop to that. I pulled the scarf closer to my face and the calming, warming scent of the blend started to make me calm down. My hands stopped shaking as much, my heart beat relaxed and I was able to get myself together.
How I use ‘Stress Remedy’:
When I am having an anxiety attack or just feeling generally stressed, I will add a drop to the palm of my hand, rub my hands together and cusp my hands over my face while taking a deep breath. I repeat this 5-10 times.
If I am going out for the day and not necessarily feeling anxious at the moment but want to prevent any panic from hitting, I add a drop to my wrist and neck as I would with a perfume. This blend smells so delicious and although at first is very strong, over time it wears down to a subtle Lavender scent with hints of Vetiver that is both calming and grounding. I have had people ask me what perfume I am wearing many times when wearing this blend!
Rub on the bottom of my feet right before bed. So relaxing and makes your feet feel incredibly soft. I dilute with fractionated coconut oil when using as a massage oil on my feet, back of neck or any other larger area of skin to avoid sensitivity.
