[AlternativeAnswers] Aromatherapy Anxiety Bath

 

Good Morning!

Aromatherapy Anxiety Bath

We all have fears and worries but when they begin to dominate our life and our behavior, and become the focal point in which everything revolves, that's anxiety. Many factors can contribute; trauma, chemical sensitivity, caffeine, heredity, drugs, alcohol, lifestyle choices....If you cannot change the situation that is the focus of anxiety, try to determine a way of trying to change your way of handling the problem. Relaxation of the mind and body and stress reduction are key.

Anxiety is often vague and undirected, a sinking feeling that something terrible is about to happen. Unlike concrete fears (of illness or losing a job, for example), anxiety often stems from what used to be called borrowed trouble. Anxious people imagine worst-case scenarios and spend lots of time dreading things that may never happen. For persistent anxiety, seek professional counseling. But the natural remedies can help tremendously.

Anxiety disorders are possibly the most common and frequently occurring disorders of the mind/body. They include a group of conditions that share extreme anxiety as the principal disturbance of mood or emotional tone. Anxiety, which may be understood as the pathological counterpart of normal fear, is manifest by disturbances of mood, as well as of thinking, behavior and physiological activity. Included in this category are panic disorder (with or without a history of agoraphobia), agoraphobia (with or without a history of panic disorder), generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobia, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorders, acute stress disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder .

Anxiety disorders are ubiquitous across human cultures. The longitudinal course of these disorders is characterized by relatively early ages of onset, chronicity, relapsing or recurrent illness and periods of disability. Panic disorder and agoraphobia are particularly associated with suicidal tendencies.

Aromatherapy can relax you and give you strength in order to handle your emotional stamina. Combined with hydrotherapy, the mysterious and amazing healing power of water has been utilized for centuries. Water cleanses, refreshes and restores all life. We are always drawn to water. Be it a soothing fountain or majestic waterfall. Water is a carrier. It flows. It moves along the line of least resistance to find its way to the ocean where comes and goes in the ebb and flow of tides and waves. The appeal is inexplicable!

Try this Anti-Anxiety Bath

If life is giving you too much stress, a relaxing bath with
the proper essential oils can give you a moment of peace
and a much-needed new perspective. Try the following bath
on a day when you're feeling stressed, and don't forget to
light a candle and lock the door for complete peace and
privacy. You will need:

1 cup of Epsom salts

Oil of Sandalwood

Oil of Patchouli

Oil of Ylang-Ylang

A bath pillow (optional)

Add the Epsom salts to your running bath, and mix with your
hands until dissolved. Then add a few drops of each of the
oils and mix well. Lay back and relax for at least 15
minutes (with a bath pillow under your head if you have
one). Don't fall asleep! Just relax and meditate on feeling
peaceful and calm. After 15 minutes, wash yourself with a
soft, natural soap (such as a rose and glycerin soap) and a
soft wash cloth. Gently pat off with a towel when your bath is
done.
