This Or That? Blends For Anxiety

April 19, 2017

We all have days that seem to get away from us. Whether we are prepping for a big meeting or running scattered errands, stress and worry can take away from our well-being. At EG, we offer two synergy blends that help combat anxiety and stress, Stress Relief and Anxiety Ease. To understand the difference between the two we need to examine aroma and the specific essential oils in each blend.

Aroma

Anxiety Ease is a soothing mixture of Lemongrass, Sweet Orange and Ylang Ylang. It has a slightly floral and warm aroma with hints of citrus. Stress relief contains Bergamot, Blood Orange, Grapefruit, Patchouli and Ylang Ylang. Stress Relief has a stronger citrus aroma with musty notes. Both Anxiety Ease and Stress Relief are balanced and subtle.

Uses

If you’re hoping to have a little less worry in your life, both Stress Relief and Anxiety Ease will do the trick. The properties in each work with the body to help you relax and recharge. Stress Relief is a great everyday, anytime blend whereas Anxiety Ease helps you tackle worry in the moment.

Anxiety Ease can help slow down your thinking and Stress Relief can help even out your emotions. If you find yourself spinning through negative thoughts, try gently inhaling Anxiety Ease by adding a few drops to an EG Pocket Inhaler.

    Hi Cindy! Yes you can use both blends in a roll-on at a 3% dilution rate. This equals to 5-6 drops of EOs per 1 tsp (10 ml) of carrier oil.

    Can you use stress relief and anxiety ease as rollers? If so so they need to have a carrier oil added

    Hi Michele! We generally recommend a 3% dilution rate for healthy adults.

    3%= 15-18 drops of EO per 2 Tbsp of carrier oil
