We all have stress and I’m sure if we could find ways to relieve it we would right? I have found one way that helps tremendously when I have “one of those days”. It’s in a small little bottle called Stress Away. The past couple months I have been dabbling in the world of essential oils more than ever. I think as I get older, I have more and more reasons to find more natural and healthy ways to help alleviate pain, sickness, stress, etc. We have some days that are more stressful than others, whether it be because of finances, sickness, feelings, friends, family, whatever the case, we have it just like everyone else. I’ve found just one small way to help on some of those days when I feel like I just can’t seem to calm down.
Some of you may know this and some don’t but I have had a couple panic attacks within the past couple months. Without getting into details on why, sometimes there is no “why”, just know, they can be scary and uncontrollable. I probably don’t experience them like some of you, I know mine were a mild form and a lot of it was my mind thinking too much and thinking negatively. So this small bottle titled Stress Away helped alleviate some of those panic feelings in the moment. It doesn’t take you out of the panic and worry, but it had a huge calming effect on me.
What does it mean to be stressed?

In Stress Away you will find a combination of a few oils. I have gone a little in detail about those oils found in there and why this one can be such a Stress powerhouse.
Is known to have high levels of beta-caryophyllene which has been extensively studied for its ability to modulate the body’s response to irritation.
Has a wonderfully light and uplifting aromatic scent. Encourages feelings of positivity.
Helps create a calming and comforting atmosphere. Its aroma is soothing and grounding and can help maintaining focus.
The scent of vanilla can be relaxing and tranquilizing. Vanilla can stimulate the secretion of certain hormones like testosterone and estrogen which help bring about an aphrodisiac like atmosphere.
Also helps the body fight off irritation, reduces feelings of anxiousness, stress and headache.
Has a clean, calming and soothing fragrance. Is known to relieve nervous tension, promotes relaxation when diffused, applied topically or added to a bath.
All of those in one little bottle? Yes, which is why I am talking about Stress Away to you today.
If I had a magical pill for you to take all your stresses away I would share it with the world. I know how hard life can be and I know mine doesn’t compare to some of yours. If there are small things we can do to help ourselves at a minimal cost, I say why not try it!
Soon, I will be starting a series on my blog soon titled How To Love Life On A Budget. This could help the stress in our lives if we can learn to be ok with where we ARE in the moment and not stress about where we AREN’T. A week or two ago I threw out a Facebook post asking what you all wanted to hear from me and this one was highlighted by many of you far more than any of the other topics! I can’t wait to start that journey with you!
