Essential Oils for Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is continuous musculoskeletal pain that radiates over all parts of the body. Sufferers of fibromyalgia are continuously disrupted by widespread pain, which makes daily living very painful.

Essential Oils for Fibromyalgia

More Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Everyone tenses up while feeling anxious or stressed. This always makes it harder to relax, and headaches, depression, or pain and cramping might accompany this discomfort. For those with fibromyalgia, they might experience those same symptoms, but suffer further from fatigue, cognitive difficulties, or feeling as if you are in a “fibro-fog,” among the list of uncomfortable chronic symptoms.

Fibromyalgia is believed to also be affected by the way the brain receives signals. An increase in neurotransmitters in the brain is believed to be caused by fibromyalgia, meaning that those who suffer from the illness continuously feel foggy and disorganized. A more concentrated memory of pain is developed in the brain, and can even increase the general brain response to pain.

Addressing both components of fibromyalgia, or the emotional and physical, can seriously help with reducing symptoms, and easing ongoing suffering caused by fibromyalgia. Individuals with fibromyalgia sometimes believe that past wounds are literally carried into the present, but essential oils can help to release and aid in soothing this pain.

The following essential oils are believed to reduce physical pain and heal emotional wounds, helping to create comfort around fibromyalgia symptoms:*

Essential Oils and Emotions, Spirit, Body, Mind

Essential Oils and Emotions, Spirit, Body, MindThe immune system, as well as the psyche, nervous system and subtle body operate concurrently to preserve health.

We can correctly call essential oils “biospiritual agents,” as they are capable of traveling throughout the whole body, and healing everywhere.*

Essential oils work on the body in four ways:

  • Physical
  • Mental
  • Emotional
  • Spiritual

Matter, energy and information, known as the “Aromatic Triad,” is understood as an integral part of oils, according to Daniel Penoel, MD in Natural Home Health Care Using Essential Oils.

Oils assist in healing at different steps of the body’s healing system, and act as adaptogens by working on the body with surprising results. The potential of essential oils is expansive.

The Eight Realms

According to Dr. Penoel, eight realms are considered to be positively affected by essential oils, and can provide the following physical benefits:

  • Congenital Realm: correct heredity through DNA repair
  • Organic Realm: promote improved organ functions
  • Bioelectric Realm: balance pH, resist electricity reduce oxidation
  • Microbial Realm: eliminate unwanted bacteria
  • Immunity Realm: improve immune system
  • Structural Realm: correct bone, joint, muscle systems—notably, the spine
  • Glandular Realm: improve glandular activity
  • Neuro-Psychic Realm: improve brain functions—pain response, endorphins, subconscious, memory, libido

Tapping, or EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) with Essential Oils

EFT is the process of using the power of energy and words to imbue energy at specific points of the body. Combined with essential oils, this makes for a powerful measure of healing.* Read some of our EFT Tapping Scripts and see all potential scripts for healing.

Essential oils help the mind, body and spirit.* If you want to improve the quality of your own realms, we have some blends that can help.

For the Congenital realm, we recommend the Clearing Generational Patterns blend. For the Neuro-Psychic realm, we recommend the Sexual Energy Roll On, as well as the Focus and Memory blend.

Essential Oils for Releasing Fears

Essential Oils for Releasing Fears Fear is a silent, lingering feeling that prevents us from moving forward. It’s a part of the fight or flight response, which is a natural human survival instinct.

But what happens when fear becomes more than a mere silent feeling, and turns into a nagging monster and there’s no fear to be found?

The possibility that something – anything – can simply go wrong can strike fear in even the most fearless of us. When a feeling of fear sets in, the adrenal glands release adrenaline, which creates a very distinct response in our bodies: a fast heart rate; sweating; digestive issues; even blurred vision; palpitations; and numbness.

Our physiological response protects us from the assumed fear but, occasionally, it betrays us. It’s normal to be fearful when seeing a scary movie (if you’re scared by that sort of thing), but when you’re feeling fearful every day, and feeling anxious for no reason at all, then it’s probably time to seek out a solution to put your mind at ease.

Fear is a powerful emotion, and can limit one’s potential if it is allowed to blow out of proportion. The fearful individual does not move forward, and feels stagnant and alone.

Even the very best actors and public speakers have stage fright — the best of us have fear, even though it may be out of proportion. Interestingly enough, it is now recommended by the Birmingham University’s Neuropsychiatry clinic that professional actors use aromatherapy to deal with stage fright (usually coupled with hypnosis).

Essential Oils for Releasing Fears

Essential oils are a calming, natural tool to lessen symptoms of fear.* They are so powerful, that even a few sniffs from the bottle can help an individual to relax almost immediately!*

We’ve put together a list of some of the very best essential oils to use when feeling fear, as well as blends that target specific objects of fear (are you afraid of failure? change?).* Use the oils individually, try out a blend, or pair the ones you like together.

Essential oils can be used in several ways: add a few drops to your bath water; use in a room diffuser; inhale from a tissue or directly from the bottle; or dilute a few drops of oil in 1 ounce of carrier oil (almond oil, jojoba oil, etc…) and rub into your skin.

15 Best Essential Oils for Anxiety and Stress

15 Best Essential Oils for Anxiety and StressStress and Anxiety in Our Lives

It’s no secret that stress has become a regular part of our everyday lives.

Although it has become the norm for us to have many things on our minds throughout the day — preparing for a big work presentation; a difficult conversation; or an upcoming exam — these things can become stressors that disrupt our inner balance.

This disruption, then, creates anxiety in many individuals. This anxiety translates into all kinds of symptoms, mental and physical, that a person lives with constantly, when the reality is there’s nothing to be truly stressed about.

How difficult it is to carry the weight of worry on your shoulders, sometimes for years! We become so attuned to our mental preoccupations that anxiety often becomes latent and inexplicable. It’s no wonder that anxiety can often turn into physical symptoms that manifest as tiredness, dizziness, perspiration, and even vomiting.

Easing Anxiety and Stress with Essential Oils

Folks are often prescribed medications for anxiety issues. However, meds are not for everyone, and bring with them many unpleasant side effects.

Fortunately, a natural solution is found in essential oils.* Essential oils can even be a good complement used alongside a medical regimen (always be sure to ask your medical practitioner first, before trying out a blend, or if you are already taking a prescribed medication).*

Using essential oils to ease anxiety is as easy as adding a few drops of a blend designed specifically to combat anxiety to your bath. Alternatively, you can also use essential oils that are considered helpful for anxiety as daily fragrances that are aromatic and therapeutic at the same time.*

15 Best Essential Oils for Anxiety and Stress

We’ve compiled a list of the 15 best essential oils for anxiety and stress, as well as a few ideas for “anxiety blends,” below.

Simply dilute 1-2 drops of each oil in 1 fluid ounce (30 ml) of carrier oil (almond oil, jojoba, etc.). It’s easy to mix up an anxiety blend, and then sniff from the bottle for quick relief, or simply incorporate one or two of these oils into your daily routine, such as adding a few drops to your bath, as mentioned above.

For an even more invigorating experience, add Epsom salts to your aromatic bath and enjoy soaking for at least 20 minutes.

Sandalwood and Pineal Gland Stimulation

Sandalwood and Pineal Gland StimulationThe pineal gland produces melatonin, which helps to control the sleep and wake cycle. It is a mysterious, fascinating part of the brain, located at the center. It is believed that when the chakras are all balanced, the body is at its optimal “alignment”—and best performance ability.

It is possible that the pineal gland’s powerful capabilities originate from the production of DMT, or Dimethyltryptamine, a psychedelic compound that occurs naturally in the body.

Melatonin also stimulates the immune system, balancing and protecting from future ailments. Amazonian Indians ingest Dimethyltryptamine through the consumption of ayahuasca for shamanic, healing purposes.

When the pineal gland is stimulated, it is believed that the sixth chakra, or the “third eye” can begin to open.

Sandalwood and Pineal Gland Stimulation

The individual, when inspired by Sandalwood, is enlightened; meditative; balanced and connected; easygoing and comfortable; self-assured; calm; and at ease with the present, past, and future.*

Sandalwood carries an aroma that is characteristic of an old soul. It’s believed that the scent of Sandalwood opens up the capacity in the brain for being more understanding, sensitive, sensual, creative, peaceful, open, expressive, harmonized and serene.*

The issues Sandalwood is intended to counteract are anxiety, nervous tension, possessiveness, the tendency to manipulate, obsession, cynicism, selfishness, uneasiness, aggression, irritation, and the crux of it all: the tendency to dwell on the past. It is believed that when the pineal gland is “closed,” these are the behaviors and tendencies that manifest.*

The sixth chakra is believed to instill the powers of clairvoyance and psychic abilities, creating a stronger intuition.

How to Use Sandalwood Essential Oil

Sandalwood oil can be inhaled; placed on the roof of the mouth (oil on thumb); or a drop can be placed underneath the tongue.*

You can place one drop in the middle of the eyebrows, or several drops on the back of the head. Sandalwood also heals the skin and reinstates a more youthful appearance and glow.*

Other essential oils known to stimulate the pineal gland are Frankincense and Cedarwood.*
