5 Calming Essential Oil Blends for Anxiety


  1. Nice post. I really like anything with linalool or chamomile in it. I’ll take a look at the blends you recommend for stress and anxiety. I need something before I go to bed at night otherwise my mind just races constantly. Good info and good read. Thanks.

  2. Very informative article! Chronic pain is a very serious and severe problem with people suffering from migraine and autonomic diseases like POTS, Ehlers Danlos, if these oils could help to give some relief then it would be the best solution rather than consuming chemicals through medicines, pain killers. These must be tried and evaluated.
