Essential oils to relieve irritability

Irritability can happen for a number of reasons from negative energy.  Irritability is an emotional issue that escalates from a bad day or even longer.  Some people have the ability to hold in their anger, but sooner or later the emotional irritability caused by negative effects can bubble to the top and cause even the most even tempered person to finally release anger in the form of irritability. 

Irritability stems from a number of issues that occur throughout the day.  Deadlines at work, the pressure of the day’s work, and any other stressful event can cause a person to suffer from irritability.  Using essential oils in aromatherapy can greatly increase your body’s ability to defend and fight back against the emotional negativity of irritability.

Irritability can also stem from home-related issues.  Just because you stay at home taking care of kids does not mean you cannot be the subject of irritability issues.  Stay at home moms also suffer from irritability of deadlines, taking care of the kids, and making sure everything in the household is perfect.  Although some may not recognize this as a valid cause, irritability can be greatly exacerbated from home caring and child-rearing.

Essential oils in aromatherapy can help you resolve your irritability issues and they can help calm you for future workdays.  Even as your environment changes, essential oils will help you quell irritability from normal levels that can otherwise cause negative effects.  Once you use essential oils for irritability relief, you will start to notice how your attitude changes.  You may even see how people will respond to you differently once your attitude has changed to a more positive attitude.

Change in living conditions or economic status can also cause irritability.  With poor economic stability, it is hard to hold a positive attitude.  Using essential oils in aromatherapy help you maintain emotional control even when you have legitimate tragedy in your life.  Although tragedy should be nurtured emotionally, it can be a base cause for irritability in your life by taking it out on your family and friends.  The aroma from essential oils can help calm your nerves and bring you a positive attitude even on the low days.

The following essential oils are the perfect way to release stress and bring calm to your irritability.  Chamomile, lavender, and neroli are the three primary essential oils that bring calm to your body and mind.  Although they can be used separately, combine them for an ultimately potent mix of powerful oils that will remove your irritability almost instantly.


Chamomile is a soothing and relaxing essential oil.  It is the first step in removing the negative effects of the day.  The essential oil is a great way to control your anger and keep your emotional system at a defined balance.  The irritation from the day will seem to disappear as this scent soothes your head and mind.


Lavender is a popular essential oil to help rejuvenated your otherwise bruised emotional mind.  It has been well known to have therapeutic effects that can help increase health and increase your energy.  By removing the tension from your muscles and mind, you can limit the effects of irritability.


The Neroli essential oil in combination with the others will follow up their tension release with a relaxing feeling.  It is derived from the bitter orange tree and distilled into a rejuvenating essential oil.  The relaxing effects dispel anger and help to lift your mood from the negative effects from the day.

For each of these essential oils, their effects are revitalizing even without the combination of the others.  However, using them in combination can create a potent effect to help you deal with emotional issues and remove the irritability that can bring more stress into your life.

“Aromatherapy is a caring, hands on therapy which seeks to induce relaxation, to increase energy, to reduce the effects of stress and to restore lost balance to mind, body, and soul.”
