Stress Relief for Work
Do you have mind fatigue or “brain fog” from being in overdrive too long? Is your workplace so hectic that you feel slightly dizzy by mid or late afternoon? Do you feel tired but cannot relax because your mind is on a hamster wheel? You can take a brief mind vacation with aromatherapy that brings calm and clarity in the midst of external pressures – bring you back to balance. The combination of three essential oils can do this without sacrificing alertness – frankincense, coriander and bergamot.
Frankincense (Boswellia carteri ) has long been recognized as a useful tool to bring clarity when the mind is overwhelmed with a barrage of thoughts or worry. Its ability to calm, clarify and center the mind is just part of the reason it has been used since ancient times for meditation practice. With its rich resinous scent, it is very gentle yet effective oil.
Coriander (Coriandrum sativum) can be used for nervous over thinking, worry and mental fatigue. It is calming yet it has an uplifting aspect, rendering a feeling of security or peace. Coriander is useful as well if there are signs of nervous depression. It has a warm, spicy and woody aroma.
Bergamot (Citrus aurantium) can diffuse frustration and tension and has a scent that is fruity/citrus and a little spicy. It helps to gently release suppressed emotional stress and is refreshing.
As you can see, the combination of frankincense, coriander and bergamot have components that bring relief to overwhelm that produces inability to think clearly – a blend that calms, clarifies and centers the mind (frankincense), calms over thinking and renders a feeling of security or peace (coriander) and releases emotional stress and is refreshing (bergamot). It is a welcomed fragrant respite amidst chaos.
MedEssential Oils produces Unwind the Mind, a blend that contains frankincense, coriander and bergamot.
