Chamomile Oil

Chamomile essential oil is a great soother for the brain. It is known to reduce anxiety and help you relax. It has also been categorized as an antidepressant.

According to Organic Facts, “chamomile oil has been found to be very effective in fighting depression and for raising spirits. They eliminate feelings of sadness, depression, disappointment, and sluggishness while inducing a sort of happy or charged feeling. Even smelling these oils can help a lot in overcoming depression and bringing about a good mood.”

Frankincense Oil

Frankincense essential oil is also great for reversing feelings of loneliness. Dr. Mercola describes this oil like this:

“Frankincense oil is one of the top essential oils you can use for your health. It’s known for its comforting properties, and is useful for visualizing, improving one’s spiritual connection, and helping overcome stress and despair.

In aromatherapy, frankincense oil is either inhaled or diffused via a vaporizer – a very effective sedative that induces a feeling of mental peace, relaxation, and satisfaction, and helps relieve anxiety, anger, and stress.”

Bergamot Oil

Bergamot oil has been used as a natural antidepressant.

This essential oil creates “a feeling of joy, freshness and energy by improving the circulation of your blood,” says Dr. Axe. It can also relax you and help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.

Clary Sage Oil

Clary sage oil is a great friend during times of loneliness. Clary sage oil is used to calm the nervous system, especially during times of stress, depression, and insomnia, according to Dr. Mercola.

Rose Oil

Another natural antidepressant, rose oil “boosts self esteem, confidence, and mental strength while efficiently fighting depression.”

“This oil is widely used in aromatherapy and invokes positive thoughts, spiritual relaxation and feelings of joy, happiness and hope.”
