How Herbal Oil Can Help Manage Anxiety
As magical as Christmas can be, it’s also a time of year when feelings of depression and anxiety can become more problematic, with all the stress and strain of the festive season often taking its toll on people’s mental health.
But there may well be a solution that some of you out there haven’t considered before – herbal oil. You’ll likely have heard quite a lot about this in the news over the last few weeks and months, although you might have heard it referred to as CBD, which stands for cannabidiol (a compound found in the hemp plant).
The majority of the oil you can buy will come with a little pipette so you can easily put a few drops under your tongue to allow for absorption before you swallow, but you can find it in other forms like powder so you can add it to smoothies or porridge. Capsules are also available for anyone who’s not a particular fan of the taste.
A study recently published in the US National Library of Medicine found that CBD can serve as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anticonvulsant and more, and it can potentially be used in the treatment of epilepsy, anxiety, schizophrenia, vomiting and nausea, and more.
If you do suffer from anxiety and are concerned about how to manage your symptoms, have a read of this article on the Care2 website, detailing how one person succeeded in mellowing their mood and taking the edge off at times when they would typically be left feeling annoyed or discouraged. It could inspire you to give it a try if you’re really struggling at this time of year.
Wishing you much happiness in 2019
All the best
