Lemonade with lavender for anxiety and headaches, No matter how hard we try to avoid stressful situations, we have to admit that living in modern society means days of stress. Every day problems at work, the elimination of family problems and trying to find some time for yourself, means that sometimes we need a day that lasts more than 24 hours, if we also want to get some sleep.
So do not be surprised if headaches and fears turn into very good friends of yours. They are just a consequence of living in a state of constant stress and trying to find time for everything.
We all have different methods of calming the unrest, but none of them is actually a long-term solution. Smoking one cigarette at a time, drinking a few cups of coffee, or drinking a few glasses of wine can temporarily relieve stress, but these habits will not do you any good in the long run.
What you really need is something very healthy to deal with the side effects of stress. That’s why we’ll talk about lavender oil and its strong properties here. This essential oil with its 150 active ingredients is a very effective anti-inflammatory, antidepressant and sedative agent.
Lavender oil may be beneficial in many conditions, including insomnia, alopecia, stress, anxiety and postoperative pain, according to studies conducted at the University of Maryland Medical Center. In addition, this oil has antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Another study, conducted at the University of Florida, shows that lavender oil can also help reduce heart rate and reduce anxiety. It was also found that patients who used lavender-free aromatherapy before surgery had less stress before the procedure. This is a testament to its calming properties.
Another notable thing about lavender essential oil is its anti-depressant properties that can help you sleep better.
These are some of the benefits of lavender essential oil as discovered in clinical trials:
The pain tolerance can be increased by a lavender-based aromatherapy in adults and children.
It can help relieve depression or anxiety in female patients undergoing dialysis treatment. Patients have shown decreased anxiety and alertness.
