The stress of daily life can sometimes become too overbearing and overwhelming. While, it is quite normal to feel anxious over a certain issue or situation, the effects of tension and anxiety on your mind and body can be really fearsome. It is no more an unknown that that most of the fatal and deadly diseases like heart disease, cancer, stroke, Alzheimer’s, etc. are either caused directly or indirectly due to stress.

So in reality, the major illness that plagues our current civilization is the stress and tension of our daily life. Symptoms of stress and anxiety include restlessness, feeling tense or on edge, irritability, impatience, or poor concentration. Some people may even notice changes in their physical health such as headaches, jaw pain, muscle tension, difficulty falling or staying asleep (insomnia), dry mouth, fatigue, chest tightness, indigestion, bloating, excessive sweating, and headache.

Although, slowing down and taking a break from the hectic routine can be great stress buster, you may not always have the luxury of time and resources to pack your bags and go off for a much needed and relaxed holiday on some luxury resort. Sometimes you need quick solutions. Bite into a juicy mango. Sip green tea. Deep breathe. Munch dark chocolate. Take warm bath. Have a massage. Or just have a nap in a fragrant cozy room. All, it takes is just 5 minutes to a relaxed and vitalized you.

As per a recent scientific finding our sense of smell gets amplified when we are stressed or anxious. This is because our body naturally goes into survival mode when we are under stressful situations to help identify threats. So as our anxiety levels rise, so does our ability to correctly sniff out a strong or unusual stench. Since, aromatherapy mainly relies on your sense of smell to provide its beneficial effects; using essential oils in stressful situations can be the best and most effective way of dealing with stress and anxiety.

doTERRA Elevation is an invigorating blend of certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils that have been scientifically proven to lift your mood and increase your energy. The uplifting combination of lavender, tangerine, elemi, lemon myrtle, melissa, ylang ylang, osmanthus and sandalwood essential oils create an energetic aroma that can help stimulate the body’s chemistry when feeling lethargic or sad.

The refreshing fragrance of elevation essential oil help enhance the feelings of joy, energy, self worth and freshness, while, dispelling any feelings of depression, sorrow and anxiety. So all you need to do to keep feeling good throughout the day and stay away from stress is just put a drop of elevate oil on one of your wrists and rub both of your wrists together. However, for moments of extra stress and anxiety, you can take an extra dose or use it as relaxing tool in bath or massage.

To obtain maximum benefits apply elevate oil by massage to the neck shoulders, back and chest of adults or children suffering from depression or stress. Use it in an inhaler or cup and inhale after massage applications. You can also use elevate oil as a perfume or cologne. The oil is best and most commonly used for depression, stress, anxiety, fatigue, jet lag and romance.
