Urvashi Gandhi On Orange Aromatherapy.
Did you know that bergamot is plant described as a hybrid of bitter orange and lemon, which may be useful for reducing anxiety and stress?
The smell of sweet orange essential oil may have anxiety-reducing properties.
Orange’s greatest claim to aromatherapy fame is its ability to affect moods and to lower high blood pressure. In fact, just sniffing it lowers blood pressure a couple points. It is also a good adjunct treatment for irregular heartbeat. Research at International Flavors and Fragrances, Inc., in New Jersey found that orange also reduces anxiety. You don’t even need to buy the essential oil; simply peel an orange and inhale its aroma.
