Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy that has been used for centuries using natural plant extracts to promote well-being and health. Essential oils are used to bolster the mind, body, and soul with their medicinal use. Using aromatherapy can significantly enhance someone’s health by influencing the limbic system of the brain directly through the olfactory organs. As the fresh scents infiltrate the body, emotions can be calmed, which can positively affect someone who has post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

Aromatherapy uses the soothing oils to relax a person when they are triggered by traumatic memories, or when they seek help from a healthcare professional. Essential oils have healing properties that can improve sleep, calm the body, release emotions, and reduce fear. The modes of administering essential oils can be done through aerial diffusion, direct inhalation, and topical application by creating your specific technique.

Keep a Consistent Routine

For aromatherapy to work for you and through you, consider setting a routine that you can adhere to gain results. Try having a daily habit of using essential oils for the healthfulness of your life. 

Keep a Healthy Diet

Aromatic herb plants added into a healthy diet can boost the immune system, improve circulation, and increase metabolism. The effects of essential oils can be beneficial for the body by mixing them in food for flavor. Just like how you would use vanilla extract or almond extract, essential oils will add an essence to the meals you make for yourself.

Keep Your Options Open

There are many ways to use essential oils to soothe you. During an anxiety attack, you can apply them topically to the skin and specific areas, such as the chest, inside the wrist, or behind the ears. When applying to large portions of the skin, it is recommended to dilute the oils when using them on the skin to avoid irritation. You can also pour oils into a bath for a calming effect for PTSD. 

The best thing about essential oils is their healing properties and how they give off a beautiful fragrance. When nothing else seems to be working, try some essential oils for the medicinal and soothing effects they can bring for appeasing trauma that continues to linger. As you learn to administer essential oils safely, relief will lessen the symptoms of PTSD to learn to live life again.
