Essential Oils and Anxiety:
There have been several studies conducted on the use of essential oils for situational anxiety. In 2011 a study evaluated the effects of inhaling bergamot essential oil on the overall regulation of the autonomic immune system ( the part of the nervous system responsible for control of bodily functions such as breathing, heartbeat and digestion). This small study evaluated vital signs before and after 10 minutes of inhalation in school teachers (54) and found an overall reduction in heart rate and blood pressure.
Try diffusing bergamot essential oil for 10 mins. You can achieve this by using a standard diffuser or place a drop of essential oil on a cotton ball next to where you’re working.
