Anxiety- Emotional Healing with Essential Oils and Flower Essences


Did you know how many people suffer with Anxiety? According to the Anxiety Disorder Statistics. Anxiety Disorders affect 18.1 percent of adults in the United States (approximately 40 million adults between the ages of 18 to 54). – National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).

This is a lot of people and it seems to be growing. We can look at society in general and see why everything is going at lightning speed and yes our brains work fast but do our emotions? Well, the answer to that is a BIG FAT “NO” ! We have to have time to process our emotions. It is difficult to go from identifying an emotion and recognizing where it came from and then go straight to solution. It is IMPORTANT that we give ourselves time to process the emotion, recognize why we feel that way and where it all begin otherwise we are constantly being worried by the same thing,  in our present or past that can lead to Anxiety and no solution how to resolve it and let it go.

So Before we go to solution which is what we all want to do instead of going through the process. Let’s look at what anxiety is? Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe.

We all have some anxiety in our lives at point or another. For example- you could feel anxious before a test, performance or job interview which is perfectly normal. However if you are spending most of your day worrying and it is affecting your day, then you need to recognize it and seek help.

Here are several conditions where Anxiety can be the main symptom:

  • panic disorder
  • phobias such as agoraphobia or claustrophobia
  • post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • social anxiety disorder (social phobia)

Today,  I am only discussing generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) which is a chronic condition that causes you to feel anxious about a lot of situations and issues, rather than one specific event. I call it being a worry wart. This is where you are anxious most days and you have a hard time remembering when you felt relaxed. Usually as soon as one anxious thought or worry is resolved, another one appears.

This can cause mental and physical symptoms.

Mental Symptoms:

  1. Trouble sleeping
  2. Feeling restless/ worried
  3. Not being able to concentrate
  4. Irritated
  5. Constantly on “edge”
  6. Sense of dread
  7. Socially withdrawn from family and friends
  8. Find work difficult or stressful and start taking more days off

All these symptoms can lead to more worry,  lower the self esteem and escalate the Anxiety

Physical symptoms:

  1. Heart palpitations
  2. dizziness
  3. tiredness
  4. muscle aches and tension
  5. trembling or shaking
  6. dry mouth
  7. excessive sweating
  8. shortness of breath
  9. stomach ache
  10. feeling sick
  11. headache
  12. pin and needles
  13. difficulty falling or staying asleep (insomnia)

What can trigger Anxiety?

If you know what is causing your anxiety such as a specific phobia like claustrophobia you would know that being confined in a small space will trigger your anxiety. Not knowing what is triggering your GAD then it can intensify the anxiety and you may start to worry that there is no solution.

However, if you have GAD there are  self -help treatments that could be help easy the symptoms of anxiety yourself.

Self Help Suggestions:

Try an online course with a trained therapist or go to a cognitive behavioural therapist

This usually involves working from a book or computer programme for around six weeks or longer. In some cases, you may be closely supported by a trained therapist who you’ll speak to every week or two. Some treatments only involve minimal or occasional contact with a therapist, who monitors your progress. Also cognitive behavioural therapy is very beneficial for anxiety. It can help you understand your condition and learn ways to manage your anxiety by modifying negative or unhelpful thoughts and behavior.


Exercise regularly, particularly aerobic exercise, may help you combat stress because it encourages the brain to release serotonin which improves your mood helping you to not worry so much.

Good aerobic exercises include:

  • walking fast or jogging
  • swimming
  • cycling
  • tennis
  • hiking
  • football or rugby
  • aerobics

Learn to relax

As well as regular exercise, learning how to relax is important.

You may find relaxation and breathing exercises helpful, or you may prefer activities such as yoga or pilates to help you unwind.

You can also try this

Avoid caffeine

Drinking too much caffeine can make you more anxious than normal. This is because caffeine can disrupt your sleep and also speed up your heartbeat. If you’re tired, you’re less likely to be able to control your anxious feelings.

Avoiding drinks containing caffeine – such as coffee, tea, fizzy drinks and energy drinks – may help to reduce your anxiety levels.

Avoid smoking and drinking

Smoking and alcohol have been shown to make anxiety worse. Only drinking alcohol in moderation or stopping smoking may help to reduce your anxiety.

Essential Oils for Anxiety:

Lavender, Grapefruit and Patchouli are the essential oils that I am going to use today for you to make an Anxiety Spray.

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia Miller) Lavender Fine has a mellow, peaceful aroma which can be overwhelming. It is good for all kinds of nervous disorders like anxiety, hysteria, panic, mental exhaustion and headaches.

Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi Macfad) Grapefruit has a fresh and sparkling aroma. It helps with clarity and confidence mentally.

Patchouli ( Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) BenthPatchouli has an aroma which is hot and earthy. It is helpful for depression, stress and exhaustion.

Anxiety Spray:

20 drops Lavender(Lavandula angustifolia Miller)

20 drops Grapefruit(Citrus paradisi Macfad)

6 drops Patchouli( Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) Benth)

2oz. water

2oz. amber glass bottle with sprayer.

Place essential oils in amber bottle. Add water. Roll between your hands to mix the essential oils thoroughly into the water. Shake before using. Spray in all four directions of the room.

Contraindications: Do not use in pregnancy.

Caution: Do not get it on your furniture. Essential oils can possibly damage varnished wood.

Do you suffer from Allergies?


Right now all the flowers and trees are blossoming and the pollen is blowing in the wind! I love this time of year however I understand how difficult it is when you suffer from a pollen allergy which can be called Hay fever. It is a common allergic condition that affects up to one in five people at some point in their life.

Symptoms of hay fever include:
a runny nose
itchy eyes

Pollen is a fine powder released by plants as part of their reproductive cycle. It contains proteins that can cause the nose, eyes, throat and sinuses (small air-filled cavities behind your cheekbones and forehead) to become swollen, irritated and inflamed.
You can have an allergy to:
tree pollen, released during spring
grass pollen, released during the end of spring and beginning of summer
weed pollen, released late autumn

Who’s affected
Hay fever is one of the most common allergic conditions. You can get hay fever at any age, although it usually begins in childhood or during the teenage years. It’s more common in boys than girls. In adults, men and women are equally affected.
You’re more likely to develop hay fever if you have a family history of allergies, particularly asthma or eczema.
1. Wear wraparound sunglasses to stop pollen getting in your eyes when you’re outdoors
2. Take a shower and changing your clothes after being outdoors to remove the pollen on your body
3. Stay indoors when the pollen count is high (over 50 grains per cubic meter of air)
applying a small amount of Aloe Vera Gel to the nasal openings to trap pollen grains
4. Use natural health modalities such as nutrition, supplements and essential oils which help the body re- establish its homeostasis in turn lessen the symptoms and in some instances completely eradicate the allergy .

Here is a video that has an Essential Oil Formulation to help you if you suffer from Allergies and Sinus!

I know this formulation will help you to breath better and enjoy your Summer!!

Orange is such a energizing and comforting essential oil. It is brings the sunshine to all who smell it. It reminds me of the times I spent at my Grandparents as a child. It always started in April – May when the Orange trees blossomed because they lived by an Orange Orchard. This lovely sweet aroma enveloped me with love that I received from them. Then my grandfather brought us a box of oranges every holiday season with all kinds of goodies made from Oranges. My heart and soul are very connected to oranges also because it brings memories of living in California where suntan lotion smells of coconut oil with Orange in it and enjoying the sun rays on the beach or at the lake! This is going to be so awesome to share all this with you this summer during the Essential Summer Camp Webinar Series !

DIY Lice Preventive Shampoo and Treatment- with Essential Oils!!!

The Dandruff Shampoo Formulation was such a popular formulation that my team and I decided to share my LICE preventive shampoo and treatment that I have used for over 15 years. Essential oils are excellent repellants and help to suffocate the eggs of the lice along with Jojoba and Carrier oils.

First of all, Shampoo the hair with this Lice Preventive Shampoo Formulation that I show you how to make on the video, then place the Lice Preventive Hair Treatment Formulation on the hair that I also teach you how to make on the video; then comb it with a lice comb. Place shower cap on the head with all the hair in it, keep it on overnight. Next morning, re shampoo the hair with the Lice Preventive Shampoo. I continue to use the Lice Preventive Shampoo and comb the hair out everyday for 10 days. Then on the tenth evening I re- apply the Lice Preventive Treatment and next morning Shampoo the hair with Lice Preventive Shampoo. Please make sure you keep  using the Lice Preventive Shampoo on a regular basis combing the hair each night until all eggs are gone.

Here is the Formulation on my Video called Daily Essentials: ” Natural Treatment for Head Lice!”

Don’t Forget You will get Formulations just like this in my Workshop, “Essential Formulations for A to Z  Ailments,” in Texas on April 13th translated in Spanish by Dr. Julissa Hernandez and LIVE Streaming where you can be part of the workshop and make the blends right in your home! We love giving you Options to learn how to use essential oils safely and effectively.
