Anxiety is the body’s way of preparing itself to deal with a threat or to deal with future stressful events. While this response is normal and happens as part of the body’s natural response to stress, this response can also happen at inappropriate times or too frequently, as in the case of anxiety disorders. Anxiety can include both physical and mental symptoms such as fear, nervousness, nausea, sweating, increased blood pressure and heart rate, feelings of apprehension or dread, difficulty concentrating, irritability, restlessness, panic attacks, and many others.

Combine 5 drops orange and 10 drops lemon with 1 tsp. (5 ml) water in a small spray bottle, and spray into the air and inhale as need
