When focusing on self-care, you should not only focus on your physical health but also your mental and emotional health. Anxiety is one of the major issues experienced today, especially with all the sudden lockdowns and social distancing requirements for this pandemic.
Lavender oil has calming effects that can help people with anxiety issues be more at ease and calm. In fact, a study from Physiology & Behavior published in 2005 reveals that people who breathed in lavender scent before their dental appointments are less anxious and have a better mood after. An International Journal of Psychiatry in Clinical Practice review article also reveals that Silexan, a lavender oil medicine, has anxiety-reducing effects on patients.
Lavender oil is an effective and perfect addition to a calming bath, not just for skincare routine but also as an excellent relaxation and anxiety-reducing method.
