2Using Chamomile And Vetiver Oils

Chamomile is a terrifically calming scent that's well known for its ability to promote harmony and reduce worry, anxiety, and overthinking. When the antidepressant properties of chamomile were studied at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, researchers found that there may well be "clinically meaningful" antidepressant effects from the herb, along with its already-established efficacy as an anxiolytic compound. Chamomile capsules were also found to be effective against the symptoms of anxiety when it was tested by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. Chamomile oil is generally extremely safe for home use; be aware of the potential for allergic reactions, especially in those who are allergic to ragweed.

Vetiver oil is frequently used to promote calmness, stability, self-awareness, and grounding, particularly for those who are recovering from trauma. This tonic for the nervous system is great in reducing sensitivity, jitteriness, shock, and panic attacks. Natural Product Research recently published a study that tracked the effectiveness of vetiver oil in treating anxiety symptoms in rats; this is just the start of formal research on this potent oil.
