I get asked all the time, “How do I apply Essential Oils most effectively when I’m feeling really anxious or worried “.
Panic attack’s and anxiety attack’s are issues so many people are dealing with.
This explanation from The Essential Life is awesome, and I’ve just done a video on how I use them. I have checked these oils for personal use and I know I am not sensitive to applying Balance and Frankincense without a carrier oil. These are doTerra’s application guidelines.
“When applying essential oils topically to assist mood, it is important to get the oils as close to the limbic system as possible and apply them where they can best bypass the blood brain barrier. Directly below the base of the skull on both sides of the neck, there is an indentation which can be felt with the fingers. This area is called the sub occipital triangle and when pure essential oils are applied here they are able to enter the circulatory system of the brain prior to entering the circulatory system of the body. Oils may also be topically applied to the mastoid bones behind the ear, across the front of the forehead, directly under the nose and may even be applied on the roof of the mouth (place oil on the pad of the thumb and then place on the roof of the mouth) for more direct access to the limbic system”.
