Peace and Harmony, isn't that what we all love? What we all look for? But sometimes it's next to impossible to achieve. In our Graceful Peace we have formulated this beautiful blend of Clary Sage, Frankincense, Jasmine, Lavender, Vetiver, and Ylang Ylang essential oils to help with just that.
Clary sage essential oil not only has a wonderful aroma, but in a study conducted on rats has shown to positively influence the levels of dopamine (the feel happy chemical) in the brain and body. A natural antidepressant, clary sage oil is one of the best remedies for anxiety, that has no side-effects. Excellent for uplifting the mood, it helps to ease feelings of anxiety by calming the mind, while boosting self-esteem and confidence.
Jasmine, essential oil derived from the jasmine flower, recent research suggests that Jasmine oil is as good as "valium" at calming the nerves and overcoming stress. Traditionally, jasmine oil has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for anxiety, insomnia, low libido and depression and today's research proves that our ancestors knew what they were doing. Jasmine oil not only alleviates feelings of depression but it stimulates the mind and helps uplift the mood and produce feelings of confidence and optimism.
Frankincense essential oil reduces symptoms associated with menstruation and menopause by balancing hormone levels. It can help relieve pain, cramps, constipation, headaches, anxiety, nausea, fatigue and mood swings. Frankincense oil also helps with regulating estrogen production and may reduce the risk of tumor or cyst development in premenopausal women. Sourced from a tree native to Somalia in Africa, frankincense is derived from the resin of the Boswellias carterri/sacara tree, which is known to grow in unfavorable, barren and arid conditions. Commonly associated with many different faiths, frankincense is believed to increase intuition and spirituality.
Lavender essential oil is perhaps one of the best and most commonly used "adaptogens" today - meaning it can adapt to any mood. A perfect pick-me-up, it's fresh and floral aroma is relaxing and calming. Lavender essential oil is excellent for improving mental concentration, reducing stress, calming agitation and alleviating insomnia. When it comes to anxiety, research suggests that applying essential oils topically might perhaps be one of the most effective ways to experience the full benefits. In the case of lavender essential oil, a study showed that the medicinal properties of lavender entered the blood stream in as little as five minutes of rubbing the oil on to the skin.
Ylang ylang essential oil can be both stimulating or calming depending on what the person using it is feeling. It is especially effective when dealing with anger-induced stress and can bring a feeling of immediate calm and peace.Rich in sesquiterpenes, molecular structures that can travel through the blood-brain barrier, frankincense essential oil can help alleviate the adverse effects of both anxiety and depression.
Vetiver essential oil has a tranquil, grounding and reassuring energy, often used in trauma helping with self-awareness, calmness and stabilization. A nervous system tonic, it decreases jitteriness and hypersensitivity and is also useful in panic attacks and shock. A study published in Natural Product Research examining the anxiety-like behavior in rats concluded that vetiver oil may be useful in lowering anxiety effects, though more research is needed to confirm this finding.
