How to use essential oils for anxiety
You can use essential oil blends to relieve anxiety in various ways.
To create a calm and cozy ambiance, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil throughout the house. For instance, use lavender oil on your pillow before going to bed. If you’re concerned about the oil-causing stains, put it on your bedside table in a saucer or tiny bowl.
Spraying the essential oil around your home is an excellent way to easily cover your favorite area. Use Balipura Crystal Infused Healing Mist Spray on and around your Aura and can also be used in rooms to help with anxiety.

This method is using ceramic plates/candles to burn the essential oils to let the aroma spread in the room. Other than calming your mind with the aromatherapy vibration, the ceramic plate and the candle also can be a decoration that adds an aesthetic look to your room.
Apply on your skin
Applying essential oils to your skin can make your mind calmer and more relaxed. If you want to use essential oils on your skin always remember you should dilute them in a carrier oil such as Coconut Oil or Sweet Almond Oil. This will help minimize the risk of skin irritability. Before using an essential oil on your skin, try to do a skin patch test on a tiny area of your skin in order to check whether you are allergic to the oil or not.
