Stress Away is an essential oil blend made from Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Ocotea, and Lavender that relieves occasional stress, encourages relaxation, and reduces nervous tension. Stress Away is a gentle, fragrant blend that brings a feeling of peace and tranquility to adults and kids alike. Taking a deep breath of a stress reducing essential oil can help your body's natural stress response by getting more oxygen to brain tissue.
Copaiba and lime are the two largest single essential oils that make the stress away blend. The largest organic compound constituents found in copaiba is beta-caryophyllene, which is a sesquiterpene. The specific sesquiterpene found in copaiba is a caryophyllene which has a woodsy scent that can help soothe inflammation and aid in emotional and hormonal imbalance. Lime essential oil (one of my FAVORITES) is largely made of limonene, a terpene that gets it's name from the lemon as many citrus fruits have high amounts of this compound. Limonene is commonly found in many cleaning products. (Source and Source: Essential Oils Pocket Reference, 6th edition. Life Science Publishing, 2014)
Usage + Recipes
Stress Away can be applied neat (doesn't need to be diluted with a carrier oil), but I would suggest diluting it so it lasts longer! Below are some great recipes that include stress away.
- Bath time body scrub
- In a small mason jar, combine unrefined granulated sugar, a tsp of raw honey, 1 tsp of vitamin E oil, and 10-15 drops of stress away
- Stress Away is great diffused alone or with other citrus oils
