Our nation is slowly remerging after over a year on high alert and emotional trauma. Although restrictions may be easing up, cohesiveness, security, and safety is still elusive. Furthermore, many divisions, stigma, and strains on relationships continue to weigh on people’s mind.
Combined with the chronic, unrelenting stress of modern times, current events have led to a rise in many stress-related and mental health issues. According to Mental Health America, the trend in mental health disorders is only getting worse, and the U.S. is ill-prepared to handle the influx.
In my latest post, I discuss how naturopathic medicine and essential oils can aid in filling in the gap in holistic psychiatric care. Topics in my article include:
- Statistics on the current emotional state of the nation
- How naturopathic medicine can support building resiliency and aiding mental and physical health during and after a crisis
- How essential oils are in alignment with naturopathic medicine and are a perfect mind-body medicine tool
- Why “emotions in a bottle” are sound science
- A specific blend for gratitude during trying times
As we step out into this uncertain world, and cautiously enter back into life, these plant metabolites can be an effective companion for soothing our bumpy road.

This information DOES NOT apply to essential oils that have not been tested for purity and standardized constituents. There is no quality control in the United States, and oils labeled as “100% pure” need only to contain 5% of the actual oil. The rest of the bottle can be filled with fillers and sometimes toxic ingredients that can irritate the skin. The studies are not based solely on a specific brand of an essential oil, unless stated.
