Exercise and a healthy diet are always the first things to check when you are dealing with anxiety. Beyond that doctors often prescribe prescription drugs. However, anxiety sufferers perhaps should be given lavender oil as a first line of treatment, after diet and exercise. That's according to one psychiatrist, Professor Peter Hans-Volz. He says millions are hooked to anti-anxiety medication and instead, patients with a mild form of the disorder should be given natural remedies, including lavender oil, to combat their symptoms.
Research, although limited, has shown 'uniquely prepared, pharmaceutical quality lavender oil can improve symptoms of mild anxiety. But remember when managing your mental health it varies from person to person – so it's really important to make the right decision for you, consult your doctor first.
