Essential Oil Recipes for Anxiety



Anxiety is a major issue for many empaths, and it can become so daunting that there must be a variety of solutions available to try to reduce or eliminate it. “While the exact effects of essential oils like doTERRA and Young Living, as well as their ability to heal most common illnesses, are hotly contested, this should not deter people from using them in their everyday lives.” 


First, let's look at which oils are most effective in combating anxiety:

  1. Lavender
  2. Rose
  3. Chamomile
  4. Ylang-ylang
  5. Frankincense

There are undoubtedly others, but those seem to be the most well-known and well-known. The scents alone may help with anxiety, but if you're having a really bad case, it's better to try a few different combos.


Here are the top five anxiety-relieving essential oil recipes:


Lavender Neck Rub 

The lavender neck rub is one of the most common recipes.

3 drops pure lavender essential oil 1 teaspoon fractionated coconut oil or almond oil

1. In a shallow cup, combine the lavender and coconut or almond oil.

2. Apply the mixture to the neck for immediate anxiety relief.

3. You should do this throughout the day whether you're feeling tired, or before bed on a regular basis.


Calming Essential Oil 

This recipe for Calming Essential Oil can be used to treat any anxiety symptoms. It has the ability to be used as a perfume. You may either put it in a rollerball vial and rub it on your skin or put it in a diffuser.

2 drops germanium, 2 drops clary sage, 1 drop patchouli, 1 drop ylang-ylang 

1. You must customise the application of your tastes, such as when it would be applied through a rollerball applicator or with a diffuser. If you're going to use the rollerball process, put 30 drops of the mixture into a 10 ml vial and rub it on your hands, feet, and neck to calm down.

2. If you want to use this mix with a diffuser, just apply the mixture to the diffuser pad and inhale deeply to relax. This is better used before bedtime or on the go if you like when your fear is at an all-time high.


Anxiety Blend - I 

When fear rears its ugly head, this recipe will put a stop to it. Take a few deep breaths until you've got this rolling, and you'll be as cool as a cucumber.

2 drops cedarwood oil, 2 drops wild orange oil, 1 drop ylang-ylang oil, 1 drop patchouli oil 

1. Mix the ingredients together in a small bowl and pour into the diffuser pad. This blend is best used in a diffuser to enable you to escape with the natural fragrance and overcome any discomfort you might be experiencing. This can be taken 30 minutes to an hour before going to bed.


Anxiety Blend - II 

This blend can soothe nerves all over the body, resulting in a wonderful feeling of calm and relief from any stress or anxiety.

2 drops bergamot essential oil, 2 drops clary sage essential oil, 1 drop lavender essential oil

1. In a shallow mixing cup, combine all of the ingredients and stir until well combined. Put the mixture in the diffuser and aromatherapy is the only way to get the most out of this blend. Use as much as you need before you achieve the desired level of peace and relaxation.


Anxiety Blend - III

This is a natural wood-type scent, so if you feel yourself most comfortable when you're out in nature, this is the one to try.

2 drops Roman chamomile essential oil, 2 drops petitgrain essential oil, 1 drop Atlas cedarwood essential oil

1. This mixture is better used as an aromatherapy blend in a diffuser.

In a shallow mixing cup, combine all of the ingredients and stir well. This perfume can be diffused in the room to help you relax and unwind. Another way to do this is to place your forehead over the bowl and breathe slowly before you enter a state of equilibrium.


Essential oil recipes can be used in a variety of contexts, including as a diffuser, as a rollerball scent, or by inhaling deeply over the bowl containing the mixture. Any of these methods, when combined with the right ingredients, will produce an aroma-filled atmosphere that will help you relax when you need it most. 

This can be used to unwind at the end of the day when reading a book and inhaling deeply the soothing fragrance. 

Overall, it can't hurt to give it a shot, particularly if you're struggling to keep your anxiety levels in check due to everyday emotions.
