Life Is Hectic, But This Powerful Tool Is Incredibly Calming

Essential Oils for Anxiety

As someone who has battled with anxiety on and off for decades, I know how valuable it can be to have tools at your disposal that can help calm you when you’re feeling anxious. And as someone who has battled an addiction, I also know how important it is for those tools to ground you in a gentle and positive way, rather than give you temporary relief that will only make things worse in the long run.

That’s why I’m grateful I have essential oils at my disposal, because many have been shown in studies to have a calming influence that can promote more peaceful feelings. When you’ve had a long, stressful day or are feeling anxious, essential oils offer a natural (not to mention fragrant) option to help put your mind at ease.

To help folks like myself that could benefit from having a natural option for anxiety relief, I set myself the task of creating a ready-made blend of calming essential oils. Now when life gets hectic, you can reach for a bottle with a label that says it all: Calm Mind.

What Is Calm Mind?

Featuring oils like sweet orange, coriander, cedarwood, lime, and balsam of Peru, the components of Calm Mind were chosen specifically for their grounding and calming properties. Together, they form a blend with a warm, citrusy aroma that can help to induce calm, control anxiety, reduce stress, and balance emotions.

But you don’t have to take my word for it—check out these reviews from my shop!

5 stars! There are very few things in the world right now that can help put me in a space to be able to calm myself. When I put calm mind behind my ears it gives off such a pleasant smell. When you take a deep breath after applying you can’t help but close your eyes and smile.<span class="su-quote-cite">Jessica</span>
I can’t tell you how happy I am with the calm mind products that I’ve gotten from Jillie’s store. I suffer with adult ADHD. Life is a challenge for me. The oils I apply to my temples and all of my pressure points. It helps to calm my mind and focus on one item at a time. It’s worth its weight in gold. I hope you get some to enjoy as I have.<span class="su-quote-cite">Kathy T.</span>
I ordered the Calm Mind oil and it really seems to help. We recently had a death in the family after a series of heart attacks. It was extremely stressful to say the least. Starting using the oil to see if it would relieve some of that stress and I truly believe that it did. Rubbed a little on the temples and a little on the wrists, sometimes just breathed in the aroma from the bottle. Great stuff!<span class="su-quote-cite">Pamela F.</span>

How Do I Use Calm Mind?

Much like the other blends in my essential oil collection, Calm Mind can be used in a number of ways:

  • Put it in your diffuser at home and work to keep stressful feelings at bay (or just because it smells nice!)
  • Dilute it with a carrier oil (like fractionated coconut oil) and massage it onto tense muscles.
  • Add a little calm to your post-shower routine by adding a few drops to your favorite lotion.
  • Looking for an at-home spa night idea? Add several drops to a handful of Epsom salt and enjoy a long soak in the bath—you’ll be feeling more at ease in no time.

Calm Mind comes in two useful formats, the standard 10 ml bottle, and the Calm Mind Ready-to-Apply Roll-On, so the options are virtually endless. While the standard bottle offers more versatility, the Roll-On is highly convenient for quick and easy application whenever you need it. I like to keep the bottle at home and the Roll-On in my purse so I can use either whenever anxiety crops up.

Is It Safe?

Pure essential oils are highly concentrated, which makes them very beneficial, but also potentially harmful if used improperly. You should always exercise caution when using essential oils, but especially around kids and pets.

If you have sensitive skin and plan to use Calm Mind topically, consider doing a patch test first. And always remember to dilute essential oils with a carrier oil before applying them to your skin (unless you’re using a Ready-to-Apply Roll-On, which comes pre-diluted and, well, ready to apply!)

Essential Oils for Anxiety

I’m really proud of this blend, both because of how effective it has been for me personally and because I know it can do the same for you. With Calm Mind at your disposal, a more peaceful state is just a swipe, drop, or deep breath away. Give it a try, and be sure to let me know what you think.

  • Hello. I’ve been following you for many years now and I appreciate most of your posts. I’ve learned so much from your site. I have no doubt this oil will be calming. Thanks for posting it.

    I have personally found answers from the Bible that adresses our fears and anxiety is a deeper source of comfort in the times we live in. The website jw.org has many bible based topics that brings us true comfort. Plus you can listen to the reading. It’s in over 1000 languages!
    Just wanted to share another source of calm.

  • I usually LOVE all your post, but this one is frustrating!… I wanted to buy your blend, but you don’t ship to France….
    Can you tell me what essential oil I can use to replace your calm blend?

    • Corinne, thanks for the kinds words. I am so sorry that we are not able to ship to France. We are constantly working on expanding our shipping area. When the shipping cost to our customers is just too high, it doesn’t make sense for us to ship our products to that country. Calm Mind is a blend of sweet orange, coriander, cedarwood, lime, and balsam of Peru essential oils. Hope this helps!
