Image result for plant love

There are plants that can help ease anxiety. They do this not only by cleaning the air around it, but also by being a distraction that can have multiple rewards. Some plants can be used to make oils and teas. Aloe Vera is a great example of a plant that can help with anxiety.

Anxiety is the result of an overwhelming amount of stress. The brain has a section called the amygdala that sends signals to the hypothalamus when it senses stress. The hypothalamus then sends commands to the nervous system. The result is an evolutionary trait that is best known as fight or flight. This was a great trait for human ancestors to survive attacks from predators and dangerous circumstances.

Nowadays, stress is triggered over non-life threatening problems. Problems such as work, family, and school - to name a few. When the brain is in constant fight or flight mode, it builds up anxiety. Luckily, there are several tools to battle anxiety, and one of those tools are plants. Plants help in numerous ways: cleaning the air, making teas and oils, and distracting the individual with anxiety. 

Aloe Vera 

Aloe Vera is a very good plant that can help with anxiety. It can clean the air by removing harmful chemicals floating around. This means it will be easier to take deep, clean breathes when needed. It's good practice to adopt deep breathing exercises when feeling anxious. Not to mention that Aloe Vera could be for medicinal use. Other plants to consider are the Jasmine, Chrysanthemum, Lavender, and Chamomile. Indirectly, plants help distract a person with anxiety by giving him or her a task. It's therapeutic to care for a plant, and the benefits that they bring against anxiety are viable.

Perfect!

The plants are beautiful, and were both expertly packed for shipping and easy to assemble. When I called with questions (these are my first plants ever), they were so helpful and warm. Highly recommend ordering plants from Essencia Air!
