Please remember that I am not a doctor. Just a mom who is sharing what works for her depression. This advice is not to be considered a substitute for discussing these problems with your doctor and the FDA does not support the validity of these claims.
As a recovering rage-o-holic, I have learned to use Essential Oils to help when I feel my body tense. By taking a break and applying the oils or just breathing directly from the bottle, I get the rejuvenation I need to realign my thoughts and react calmly.
Essential Oils to Use for Anger Management
Peace and Calming
An essential oil blend of Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy, Peace and Calming reduce depression and promote relaxation. To help with anger management, diffuse Peace and Calming, drop into bath water, or use it as perfume.
Other uses for Peace and Calming Essential Oil Blend include treating insomnia and soothing nerves. Refer to page 185-186 of the Reference Guide for Essential Oils to view a complete listing of the benefits.
Helping to dispel anger, Ylang Ylang Essential Oil can be diffused or applied to the feet. I often place it on my spine at my lower back when my anger is related to PMS.
Other uses for Ylang Ylang Essential Oil include treating anxiety, lowering blood pressure, releasing frustration, and more. Refer to page 131 of the Reference Guide for Essential Oils to view a complete listing of the benefits.
If conversation is difficult without angry outbursts, Roman Chamomile can be diffused or applied over the throat. Roman Chamomile helps bring emotional balance and stabilize anger.
Other uses for Roman Chamomile Essential Oil include treating allergies, cleanse the blood and liver, calm crying children, and more. Refer to page 57-58 of the Reference Guide for Essential Oils to view a complete listing of the benefits.
Because Lavender is soothing and calming, I use Lavender to help release tension and angry feelings by inhaling straight from the bottle or by rubbing into the back of my neck.
