Stress and anxiety are two common factors that everyone experiences. It can be good and allows you to rise to the occasion or it can be bad, which slowly breaks you down. When a person is in a constant state of stress, it can take a toll on their body. This can result in high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes and heart disease. There are many effective natural ways to manage these resulting medical conditions, such as Clearesterol for high blood pressure. However, it would be much better to get rid of the source, which is stress and anxiety. There are five natural and effective essential oils that you should use to lower stress levels and when combined form an excellent blend called “Deep Chill.”


Clary Sage

The Clary Sage, native to the Mediterranean, has many health benefits that you can reap from. It has antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and, of course, stress relieving properties. Many studies and research have been conducted to fully understand Clary Sage and its stress-reducing benefits. For instance, a study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, Clary Sage had the most potent stress relieving effects on rats compared to chamomile, rosemary, and lavender. The cause of this is the release of dopamine, one of the happy hormones, in the brain. This is why Clary Sage for stress relief is a practical option.
