A synergistic blend of essential oils can be more effective for getting the results you desire than any single essential oil. The pure essential oils I recommend you use in a blend for nerve support, include: Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Vetiver. Learn why and the methods of application for best results!
LAVENDER ( Lavendula augustifolia ):
- Lavender's gentle nourishing and healing effect on the body, mind, spirit and emotions comes from its notable ability to harmonize and stabilize the entire human energy system, or Chakras.
Excellent for balancing hyper emotional states such as shock, anger, impatience and irritability Lavender helps dispel the negative mental states of fear & worry and supports the growth and development of inner freedom from compulsion and clinging to one's desires.
Lavender reduces angry and defensive mental images and is known for promoting flexibility in temperament.
VETIVER ( vetiveria zizanoides ):
A thick, resinous oil with rare and mysterious energies to revitalize, support and comfort. Vetiver's fragrant scent is rich, deep, earthy and sweet with spicy undertones.
Helpful for shock and trauma! Vetiver's aroma has a powerfully grounding and reassuring effect that may be relied upon to relieve stress, anxiety or panic.
The strong and hearty roots of this tropical grass reach deep into the earth. Many countries plant Vetiver for protection against soil erosion. Vetiver can tolerate and survive even the severest conditions.
A powerful immune and circulatory stimulant Vetiver's neuro-receptor process has been well-documented in controlled experiments explaining Vetiver's action on the circulatory system.
Vetiver's action to stimulate the production of red blood cells makes it useful for relieving stress and tension held in the body.
A mild sedative Vetiver promotes rest and relaxation. Helpful as a sleep aid!
YLANG YLANG ( Cananga odorata ):
- Softly sweet and warm Ylang Ylang has an intoxicating aroma (pronounced "eelang") with sensual overtones. Ylang Ylang in the Malayan language means "flower of the flowers."
A native flower of Madagascar and the Reunion Islands Ylang Ylang's fragrant pale yellow blossoms are used to grace a new marriage bed with a blessing of love and lasting happiness.
Ylang Ylang is high in sesquiterpenes. Ylang Ylang III, the last fraction collected during the last hours of distillation, is slightly thicker, earthier and less sweet oil, and is composed almost entirely of sesquiterpenes.
When distilled from plant matter sesquiterpene compounds are known to stimulate the liver and endocrine glands.
Research studies indicate Ylang Ylang stimulates the Central Nervous System. Ylang Ylang is one of the first essentials oils to consider when needing help for regulating and balancing the nervous system.
METHOD OF APPLICATION: Bath ~ Fill your tub with water, add 5-15 drops of your essential oil blend that has been mixed in a dispersant such as a carrier oil, milk or cream, or a spoonful of honey, swish to disperse in the water. A half cup each of Epsom Salts (muscle relaxant, detoxifier) and Baking Soda (skin softener) can also be used to disperse the oils in your bath water.
Research shows that essential oils will remain in your bloodstream for up to 4-6 hours.
Essential oils are not water soluble you must use a dispersant when adding them to a facial steam or bath and water may cause the oils to penetrate your system more quickly or cause irritation to sensitive or damaged skin, i.e. blemishes, sores or rash.
There are many cheap, synthetic copies of aromatic oils, but these are not recommended for therapeutic use. For best results purchase the highest quality oils you can possibly find. Use certified organic essential oils, or oils that have been tested and are pesticide free.
