Essential Oils make great Christmas gifts. After all the three wise men brought gold and essential oils.
One great Christmas gift is a stress reduction bowl and sandalwood essential oil like this one that sits on my office desk.
This bowl was carved in Tunisia and is seasoned with East Indian Sandalwood oil. See how it can reduce stress below.
Anxiety is a natural response to stress. Too much of it creates health risks. For example, anxiety can cause memory loss and even double the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. A team of researchers from the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative did a three year study of 376 patients between the ages of 55 and 91 years-old. These patients had memory loss but not enough to be at risk because most people lose memory as they age.
The study showed that the subjects with more anxiety saw faster mental decline than those without it. The greater the anxiety the faster memory capability was lost. Subjects with the most anxiety had the fast loss and over twice the risk for Alzheimer’s Disease because anxiety shrinks the area of the brain that controls memory.
Numerous essential oils can help lower stress and reduce anxiety. Sandalwood is one of the best essential oils for this process as it has a unique ability to calm the mind and body and improve performance. I use my olive wood bowl with East Indian sandalwood essential oil because it helps me into a state of relaxed concentration.
