Essential oils for occasional and minor anxiety

There are evidences for the effectiveness of lavender in the treatment of anxiety in humans. In a single-blinded, randomized pilot study, Lehrner and colleagues found lavender odor exposure to be effective in relieving anxious mood in dental patients who underwent a stressful procedure. Kuroda and colleagues examined the sedative effects of (R)-(−)-linalool, the main component of both jasmine tea and lavender, on moods and autonomic nerve activity (ANS) [13]. They found that it produced calm and vigorous mood state and elicited a significant decrease in heart rate and an increase in HF (high-frequency) component when compared with the controls [13]. Source
