We all suffer from lack of sleep, stress, allergies, and various other health concerns from time to time. It may be tempting to head to the pharmacy for a cure-all, but the truth is a magic formula doesn’t really exist.

What can potentially help, however, are essential oils, which have been proven to relieve these common issues and more! All you need to do is place a few drops in a diffuser.

Fight off infection.
Have a case of the sniffles? Lemon, oregano, and peppermint oils all possess properties to help maintain a healthy immune system and fend off common sicknesses.

Take down allergy season.
Allergies can make us feel groggy and drained, but basil, tea tree, and eucalyptus oils are great for combating common allergy symptoms, like a stuffy nose and cough.

Stay away from stress.
Anxiety and nerves are a burden on many of us—preventing us from enjoying life to the fullest and putting in as much effort into our day as possible. Chamomile, rose, and frankincense oils work wonders on nerves to help keep you relaxed.

Find your focus.
Nothing is more frustrating than needing to accomplish a difficult chore but not having the ability to clear your mind and get the job done. Peppermint, pine, and eucalyptus oils can help you focus on the task at hand.

Sleep more soundly.
Getting a sufficient night’s rest is one of the best things you can do for your health, but with a busy schedule, it can be difficult to get a full eight hours. Lavendar, ylang-ylang, and vetiver oils create a calming atmosphere to help you doze off peacefully.

Keep bugs at bay.
Bugs are not only a pain at picnics, but for some of us, they can also cause an allergic reaction or other more serious problem. Rosemary, cedarwood, and clove oils are unattractive to pesky critters and can help you enjoy the outdoors bite free.
