A study by the Mental Health Foundation in 2018 found that 74% of people have felt so stressed that they have been overwhelmed or unable to cope. Whether you are struggling with stress and anxiety, or are finding it difficult to energize and motivate yourself, we have a range of essential oils for stress and anxiety for you to try.  

Have you read Rina’s story about her battle with overwhelming stress?

Dotty’s Oils has a range of oil blends specifically designed to help assist mood fluctuations and enable more control over your thought processes.  We would suggest in the first instance taking a look at the Aromatherapy Diffused Kit or the Mood Management Kit.

You may want to try oil blends such as Elevation (the joyful blend) for instance, which is a blend especially aimed at elevating your mood and increasing vitality or Peace (the reassuring blend) – a unique blend of floral and mint essential oils serving as a positive reminder that you don’t have to be perfect to find peace. You can diffuse oil blends with other oil blends and Citrus Bliss and Balance is a wonderful combination in the diffuser - it is both uplifting and grounding.

A firm favourite of Rina’s is the Console Roller Bottle - a few swipes of this on the back of the neck and the warming aroma calms and comforts her. When she has a big day in court and knows that a stressful time awaits her, Rina’s go-to oil is Vetiver. Rina says: “Vetiver is an oil that we don’t often hear about but it is a base note in lots of perfumes and aftershaves. It is an incredibly sedative oil and when I inhale it and place just a drop on the back of my hand, I immediately feel less anxious and ready to tackle what lies ahead. Aromas can ignite so many different feelings in us and an aroma that feels like a hug is one I will take every day of the week!”
