Beating Anxiety and Depression the natural way.


Anxiety and depression starts with stress.

Stress is a part of everybody's lives. It's what helps us to stick to our "to-do" lists and get things done. However, although a healthy amount of stress keeps us on our toes, it can quickly grow to an unhealthy amount which can knock us on our butts... and unfortunately today, this is what happens for most of us. Stress can start to eat away at us by affecting our sleep and our eating habits.  It can cause us to experience immediate effects such as fatigue, muscle tension, gastrointestinal upset, and migraine headaches.  Overtime, constant stress can build up and turn into different degrees of anxiety and/or depression.


What is depression?

Depression is characterized by feelings of inadequacy, hopelessness, and sadness that persist for a long period of time.  Depression can cause individuals to lack motivation which can make it difficult to go to work or even get out of bed.  Individuals who are depressed generally have a poor outlook on life and may resort to being alone.  Suddenly things that used to bring joy or happiness to the individual no longer do, which may cause the individual to lose interest in hobbies or lose touch with friends and family.  Depression can cause crying spells or periods of anorexia or inactivity, among other things.


What is anxiety?

Anxiety (Generalized Anxiety Disorder or GAD) is characterized by constant feelings of nervousness and uneasiness or irrational fears/worries that have persisted for a long period of time.  Individuals with GAD generally have a "worst-case scenario" point of view and will dwell on the possibility of a bad outcome even if the bad outcome is not realistic or likely.  Prolonged anxiety can often cause a variety of "random" symptom including vertigo, symptoms that coincide with those of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, a "lump-in-throat" feeling, and even random sensory issues such as smells of ammonia or feelings of detachment and unreality. Generally these are temporary and stop when the anxiety stops. Anxiety can also lead to panic attacks which can be very frightening.  Panic attacks are generally the result of built up anxiety, or anxiety becoming overwhelming.  When a panic attack happens, the individual can experience symptoms most commonly including a racing heart, clammy hands, chest pain or tightness, heavy or troubled breathing, a feeling of faintness, nausea or stomach upset, and dizziness/vertigo or disorientation. 

What can I do RIGHT NOW to jump-start my "recovery"?

We have all heard on TV or read in books, magazines, or newspapers that stress leads to nasty things like heart disease and Alzheimer's. Well, it's true.  Stress is destructive.  And unfortunately, when stress turns into anxiety and depression, usually it turns into a vicious cycle where the depression and anxiety itself causes you to be more depressed and anxious.  It feels inescapable... BUT it's not!  All you need to do is break the cycle.  I'm telling you this from experience.  I have not used any sources to write any of the above.  I've lived it and I know exactly what anxiety and depression feels like and what nasty things they can both do!

To start to break the cycle, first and foremost, relax!  Seriously.  Think about it this way: worrying generally does nothing for you. If there is a solution to the worry, worry is not necessary. Plan out the solution, and execute!  All worrying is going to do here is cloud your thoughts and mess you up. If there is no solution to the worry and you can't do a single thing about it, why worry?  Worrying about things you cannot control or change is purely destructive and NOT productive or useful in any way at all.

Secondly, BREATHE.  Breathing exercises can work instantly to help you calm your mind and body. Not only does the actual breathing help you, but the distraction does as well.  Have you ever found yourself in a stressful situation at work or home (dumb question) where you can practically feel steam coming out of your ears?  Or have you ever felt so panicked or so sad that your mind is a mess of thoughts and emotions?  Breathe.  Try breathing in deeply, holding the breath for a comfortable amount of seconds (5 or 6 works for me) and releasing the breath completely.  Repeat.  You will feel your emotions settle considerably.

Thirdly, try to focus on a few of those things you used to really enjoy, or find a new hobby or a group of friends to start seeing. Find a new show that you can really get excited about. Part of what makes depression and anxiety feel so inescapable is noticing that each day feels worse than the last.  So add some fun and joy back in!  It will be hard at first, but you'll catch on.  Just keep pushing.

Pick your "key players" to help you with your recovery AND to keep your protected from stress, anxiety, and depression in the future.

Essential oils have shown amazing benefits in healing the mind and body.  Even just a quick whiff of different essential oils can instantly calm your emotions and lift your mood.  Applying essential oils to your body or taking them internally can help to repair damage stress has caused to the body and bring back balance. Essential oils can be a powerful alternative to medications that can have nasty side-effects. They are natural and work WITH the body to help bring you back to where you should be... both mentally and physically.

Here's a list of the oils that doTERRA offers that will help TREMENDOUSLY with depression and anxiety.


Oil Blends:

Balance -  Balance is a blend of spruce, rosewood, frankincense, and blue tansy in a base of fractionated coconut oil that can be applied topically or used aromatically.  It has a warm woodsy smell. This blend of oils calms the mind and body which helps with sleep at night, but can also be used during the day to keep stress at bay and to keep focused.  Balance is great for alleviating feelings of anxiousness and disconnectedness. I usually apply to the bottoms of my feet, back of my neck, and over my heart at night for sleeping at night.  I apply to the bottoms of my feet and sometimes my wrists for daytime.

Serenity - The Serenity blend includes lavender, sweet marjoram, roman chamomile, ylang ylang, Hawaiian sandalwood, and vanilla bean extract.  These oils all have properties that boost relaxation and feelings of well being.  Serenity can be applied topically or used aromatically.  This blend is best for supporting sleep.  Use with a diffuser, apply to the bottoms of your feet before bed, or add a couple drops to a hot bath. 

Citrus Bliss - Citrus Bliss is made up of wild orange, lemon, grapefruit, mandarin, bergamot, tangerine, clementine, and vanilla absolute.  This blend smells absolutely AMAZING and can be used aromatically or topically. Citrus oils are invigorating and help to energize the body and mind and elevate mood. Citrus Bliss would be great for increasing motivation, and citrus oils are also known to help trigger an appetite in those with anorexia.  You can even use this blend to disinfect surfaces... citrus oils have great cleansing properties!

Elevation - Elevation consists of lavandin, tangerine, elemi, lemon myrtle, melissa, ylang ylang, osmanthus, and Hawaiian sandalwood.  Like Citrus Bliss, this blend energizes.  It excites you and inspires feelings of joy, but it also balances the mind and body and promotes a sense of well-being. Elevation can either be used topically or aromatically.

Clarycalm - Clarycalm is a blend of clary sage, lavender, bergamot, roman chamomile, cedarwood, ylang ylang, geranium, fennel, carrot seed, palmarosa, and vitex.  This blend is geared more towards the ladies, as it includes oils that will help to balance the hormonal system for women.  If your anxiety and depression seems to be monthly or is caused mostly by hormonal levels or changes, clarycalm could be the perfect blend for you.  This blend comes in a rollerball bottle and should be used topically.

Single Oils:

Bergamot - Bergamot is set apart from the other citrus oils because of it's calming abilitites.  It helps to improve circulation which gives a feeling of increased energy.  Bergamot oil has abundant in Alpha Pinene and Limonene, which are two compounds that are found to work as anti-depressants. This oil has been used as a natural cure for postpartum depression.  Bergamot can be used aromatically or topically.

Lavender - Lavender is probably one of the first things you think of when you think "essential oils". Lavender has been very popular for its calming properties for quite some time, and has been shown in studies to decrease anxiety and stress overall.  Not only does lavender calm the mind and body, but it also lessens the perception of pain... it's great for burns! Lavender can be used internally, aromatically, and topically.

Patchouli - Patchouli works to balance the emotions, support mood, and create a sense of positivity. The smell of patchouli alone will help to lift feelings of sadness and deep depression. Patchouli will help to improve the benefits of meditation by bringing a sense of inner peace to the mind.  This oil can be used topically, aromatically, or internally.

Citrus oils - As mentioned above, all of the citrus oils have energizing and mood-lifting benefits. These oils can be used topically and aromatically, but are also great to add to water to take internally.  A couple drops of lemon in a glass of water everyday is great for cleansing the body!

Frankincense - Frankincense is an AMAZING oil (to read all of the benefits, check out my earlier post on frankincense here.  Frankincense helps to balance all of the systems of the body.  It helps to alleviate stress, anxiety, and sadness.  For those with hormonal depression and anxiety, this is a GREAT one for you as well!  Frankincense can be used topically, aromatically, and internally. A couple drops under the tongue every morning will help with hormonal balance.

Supplements:

Lifelong Vitality Pack - doTERRA's Lifelong Vitality pack includes their Alpha CRS+, Mocroples VMx, and xEO Mega supplements.  These supplements work from the ROOT of the problem, supplementing the body with all of the essential nutrients needed for the body to be in the healthiest condition possible.  The Lifelong Vitality pack is the answer to creating the foundation for a healthy, happy, and stress, anxiety, and depression FREE lifestyle.

More on how to use essential oils:

Topically:  Use a couple drops to apply to the bottoms of feet, over the heart, or on the wrists, temples, back of neck, or forehead.

Internally: If the oil is recommended for internal use, you can add a couple drops to a capsule (capsules can be purchased through doTERRA).  You must add the drops to the capsule and take immediately, as the oils will break the capsule down.  Capsules cannot be stored filled with essential oils.  Oils can also be taken internally by adding a couple of drops to a 8 or 12oz glass of water (please make sure the cup is made of glass and NOT plastic or Styrofoam, as essential oils break these materials down).

Aromatically:  Apply the essential oils to the palms of the hands and inhale, or use a diffuser (please be sure to use the diffuser correctly).

20 Ways to use Frankincense Oil, and how to get your bottle for FREE this month!

For the month of December, doTERRA is offering to give you a FREE bottle of Frankincense Oil ($93 retail value) for every 200PV ($200) order you place!  See the bottom of this post to see how you can get yours today.

Frankincense is an aromatic resin that comes from the trees of the Boswellia family.  It is obtained by slashing the bark which allows the resin to bleed out and harden into what are called tears.

Frankincense has been used for thousands of years in both healing practices and religious rituals.  It and myrrh where included in the gifts given to baby Jesus.  Today, it is used widely in perfumes and aromatherapy and sometimes skincare.

Frankincense has hundreds of uses which include support of the digestive system, female hormone system, healing of wounds, treatment of arthritis, and more.  If there is only ONE oil that turns you into a believer of the power of essential oils, it will be this one.  Here are just SOME of it's many uses.



1) Arthritis.  Massaging frankincense into the joints affected by arthritis will decrease inflammation and relieve pain.  Inhaling from steam or a diffuser may also help.  Apply along with doTERRA's Deep Blue blend for added relief.

2) Hormonal/endocrine balance. Frankincense works to balance the whole endocrine system.  It works very well with geranium for this purpose.  The best places to apply oils for hormonal balance are the the Vita Flex points on the ankles, lower back, kidneys, liver, gland areas, thyroid, the clavical area, and the center of the body and along both sides of the spine.  You can also diffuse them.  2 or 3 drops of Frankincense under the tongue every morning and night will help with full endocrine balance.

3) Healing of Wounds/Infected Wounds (oral as well).  Frankincense works as an antiseptic and a coagulant.  Apply directly to wounds to prevent infection, stop bleeding, and speed healing without side effects.  The antiseptic properties of frankincense also make it a good oil to use for oral health.  Frankincense oil will help prevent premature loss of teeth.

4) Digestion.  Frankincense helps to relieve diarrhea of all different causes and eliminate gas and prevent its build-up.  It will help to relieve indigestion, stomach upset or pain, and general uneasiness of the stomach.  It also helps to fight the loss of firmness of the intestines associated with age

5) Cancer.  2 or 3 drops of frankincense under the tongue morning and night helps to fight tumors and induce cell death of some cancerous tumors.  It may work well when applied topically directly to the tumor if possible.  This will also help mood and inflammation.

6) Depression, anxiety and stress relief.  Apply to the temples, wrists, or bottom of feet.  Mixing with peppermint before applying may increase the affects.  The aroma will also help greatly, so diffuse or inhale from steam.  (See hormonal/endocrine balance if your depression/anxiety is related to hormones). Frankincense will also help with dizziness and vertigo sometimes caused by stress and anxiety (or inner ear infection).

7) Coughing/Asthma.  Apply to neck and throat to soothe coughing or throat irritation.  Frankincense helps to eliminate mucus in the respiratory system which makes it great for congestion of the respiratory system and helpful in assisting the treatment of bronchitis and pneumonia.

8) Inflammation.  Frankincense has great anti-inflammatory properties that allow it to not only reduce inflammation, but pain as well.  Massage into the inflamed area, or inhale from steam for general inflammation relief. 

9) Memory/brain health.  Diffuse while studying or working or massage into the toes or body.  Frankincense will also help with mental fatigue when inhaled. This can also be beneficial for the healing of a brain injury.

10) Hair and skin.  Frankincense has astringent properties that help to tone and lift skin. Frankincense helps to improve the health of cells which allows it to act as an anti-ager when applied topically to the skin, reducing wrinkles and sunspots. It strengthens the hair root which assists healthy hair growth and helps prevent hair loss associated with age.  

11) Scars.  Frankincense helps scars from surgery, acne, chicken pox, boils, stretch marks, and more fade faster.  Apply topically to the scarred tissue.

12) Warts.  Apply frankincense directly to the wart daily.  Frankincense will help to kill the virus, reduce the pain and inflammation and prevent further spreading of warts.

13) Insect Bites.  Apply to the affected area to soothe itching, prevent infection, and speed up healing.

14) Vision improvement.  Apply 1-2 drops of frankincense oil to the temples daily, or rub in hands and cup hands over eyes allowing the fumes to circulate the eyes.  DO NOT put into eyes or rub near eyes.  Frankincense oil provides a temporary immediate increase in ability to focus, but also gradually improves eyesight that has been declining due to age.

15) Immune system support.  Massage a couple drops into the bottoms of feet daily.  Frankincense helps to support the whole immune system keeping you protected from flus, colds, and other nasty bugs.

16) Itching or dry skin.  Frankincense applied to rashes or skin irritations to help soothe and heal.  Those who apply frankincense to skin regularly will see improvement in dry or scaling skin.  Adding to lotion or fractionated coconut oil will help to disperse the oil more effectively.

17) Better sleep.  Apply to the bottoms of feet before bed if unable to sleep.  For children, or if you have sensitive skin, mix with fractionated coconut oil before applying.  Inhaling from steam or diffusing may also help.

18) Improved focus and concentration.  Just like improving memory, diffuse while studying or working to block out distraction and improve focus.  You could also apply to your temples or wrists to take the aroma with you throughout the day.

19) Cysts.  The same as warts, apply frankincense directly to the cyst daily.  Frankincense will help to soothe pain and inflammation and prevent further infection.

20) Health overall.  Overall, frankincense supports the entire body and keeps it protected from disease and illness. It keeps all systems in the body operating smoothly and aids in the absorption of nutrients.
