Best Essential Oils for Grief
Grief is a painful process that we all experience at times. Grief is natural, but also, you deserve to be able to get support during your healing. In addition to therapy, journaling, and meditation, aromatherapy can help release grief. The best essential oils for grief are the oils that help you feel grounded, calm, and rested.
Peppermint – Peppermint helps stimulate the senses and provide natural energy. For days when you want to get up and go about your day but grief keeps you in a slump, peppermint can help clear your mind and help you stay aware of the present moment.
Lavender – Lavender helps promote relaxation and tranquility. For days when grief is causing you insomnia, distraction, or stress, lavender can help you slow down and feel peace. Sleep and self-care are important parts of the grieving process, and lavender can help you catch some well-deserved rest.
Frankincense – Frankincense is grounding and calming, and can help improve mood. Use frankincense when you need to do deep thinking, journaling, or meditating. Frankincense can also be sedative, so you can diffuse it before bed or when you need a good nap.
Cedarwood – Cedarwood is woodsy and earthy like its name suggests, and it can actually help you feel more down to earth too. When your mind is racing and your stress is taking the lead, try diffusing cedarwood to calm down and relax.
Rosemary – Numerous studies have shown that rosemary helps improve focus. Grief can be very distracting. And while you need to take time to process your thoughts, you also sometimes need to work and accomplish daily goals. Diffuse rosemary when you need to focus on the task at hand.
Tracy’s Grace – Tracy’s Grace is our very own signature calming blend. Bright organic orange essential oil, calming lavandin, and grounding organic rosemary work together to soothe the nervous system and help you take care of your holistic health.
Grieving is hard. Remember that the healing process is never one-size-fits-all. Take care of yourself and take it easy. And get the help and support you need, because you deserve it!
