Older adults who habitually use sedatives for anxiety or insomnia may have a heightened risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, a new study suggests. The drugs in question are benzodiazepines, a widely prescribed group of sedatives that include lorazepam (Ativan), diazepam (Valium) and alprazolam (Xanax).
Those in our household have felt both calmer and cheerier after taking Young Living Essential Orange Oil. (I was able to give up Valium and Xanax several years ago; Young Living Lavender, Frankincense, Melissa, and Abundance Oils have been effective for the challenge of anxiety as well.) The following is from OrganicFacts.net:
Antidepressant: The very smell of orange essential oil reminds you of happy moments and brings pleasant thoughts to mind. That is why this oil is so frequently used in aromatherapy. It creates a happy, relaxed feeling and works as a mood lifter, perfect for people who suffer from depression or chronic anxiety.
Young Living Orange Oil is sold at a great price, too, and makes wonderful grab bag gifts for Christmas or any time of the year.
