Tension building, giving you a rush of anxiousness. You drip these oils for the Anti-Angst DIY Essential Oil Blend into your diffuser and feel the stress and tension melt away.
It is especially important to keep your stress as low as possible, especially in globally tense times when so many people are on the brink of a major meltdown watching their daily routines being shattered.
In fact, using essential oils to help our family with managing our bodies’ stress responses is one of my favorite uses for essential oils!
Reducing your stress helps you in more ways then one. It helps:
- reduce your anxious tension,
- not overwhelm your different body systems,
- positively impacts your mental health,
- optimizes and strengthens your immune system.
Thankfully, essential oils are the perfect companion to helping you stay sane, melt the tension, and live your best life feeling less stressed.

Anti-Angst DIY Essential Oil Blend Recipe
- 15 drops lavender essential oil
- 10 drops marjoram essential oil
- 8 drops ylang ylang essential oil
- 7 drops sandalwood essential oil
- 5 drops roman chamomile essential oil
- 5 drops vanilla extract
** PLEASE NOTE ** Don’t be fooled by clever marketing. Not all essential oils are created equally. Make sure you’re not wasting your money on fake essential oils, or oils diluted in questionable solvents (even if they’re labeled as “pure essential oil”). Don’t miss our complete guide on how to find quality pure essential oils to ensure you’re not wasting your money on brands of oils that legally carry out questionable or unethical practices and mislead you through deceitful marketing practices.
Drip these drops into a 5ml bottle to use as a diffuser blend. I highly recommend using an old empty bottle that’s been sanitized (washed and boiled). We LOVE reusing old oil bottles for our custom blends, and love encouraging our readers and members to do the same to help reduce waste.
Use 3-5 drops in your diffuser, depending on the size of your room. If you have a smaller room you’ll only need 2 drops. Larger rooms with valued ceilings may need more.
Instead of using a diffuser, you may drip 1-2 drops onto your favorite piece of diffusing jewelry.
Modify this Anti-Angst DIY Essential Oil Recipe to be a rollerball recipe
This blend will yield approximately 50 drops. To turn this into a rollerball bottle, simply add it to an empty 10 ml rollerball bottle, and fill the rest of the way with your favorite carrier oil.
If you’re reusing your old oil bottles (which I highly recommend doing to reduce waste), you may double the recipe into your 15 ml bottle, fill it the rest of the way with your favorite carrier oil, and top it off with a rollerball attachment.
Safety info for the Anti-Angst DIY Essential Oil Recipe
There are no photosensitive or phototoxic oils in this blend, so you may wear it without worrying about it reacting on your skin.
Please make sure you dilute this blend before using it topically on your skin.
My personal experience using this Anti-Angst Essential Oil Blend
As a military wife and veteran, I endure more stress on a regular basis than I previously thought I could handle. Between moving to different states (and sometimes different countries) every 2-3 years… to saying goodbye to my husband for anywhere from a week to seven months… to the family reintegration when he returns… to stressful moments as we both face our inner stress demons… to adrenal fatigue brought on by living an inconsistent life with high stress.
Essential oils have been a Godsend to my family in terms of living healthier, overcoming my 8 year health crisis, routinely solo-parenting two young boys, missing my husband, and handling all the judgement that comes from people who don’t understand our lifestyle.
This Anti-Angst essential oil blend helps me when I’m feeling so overwhelmed with tension that I can’t do anything but sit down and cry at the dining room table with a hot cup of tea in the stillness of the night as my kids sleep sprawled out on my bed.
Dripping a few drops into one of our diffusers, and just sitting peacefully as I feel the tension break loose and reduce with each breath. It helps me feel like a capable human again, and even offers some better sleep despite having been so worked up and tense earlier in the day.
I’d like to say this is a once in a while thing, but life as a military wife comes with repeating challenges. While its worth every moment because of the increased love that comes with those challenges, having something like essential oils in my mental health toolkit is massively beneficial at helping me cope when I need it the most. Especially in moments where we have limited to no local support.
Where to Buy Essential Oils
We purchase our oils through Young Living because they set a higher standard for essential oils than what the rest of the industry expects. Their Seed to Seal guarantee is unmatched, and shows their dedication to a farm-to-table type of approach.
Warning: DO NOT purchase your oils through Amazon or similar websites!
Any website that allows anyone to sell on, such as Amazon, eBay, Walmart… etc… are terrible places to purchase essential oils. While you may get a “good deal,” knowing who you’re purchasing from is difficult. There are many counterfeit essential oils being sold that are causing health ailments, major skin reactions, and a lot of misery. These are NOT high quality essential oils. They are fakes being sold purely for profit.
I also do NOT recommend purchasing from grocery stores, Walmart, Target, department stores, or drug stores. Many of the brands found at those stores have been proven to not actually contain any essential oil (which is perfectly legal to do).
I STRONGLY suggest you know the company that makes your oils, how the plants are cared for, what they do for distilling, how and how many times each batch is tested (and when), and their bottling processes. Many companies throw out fancy language for marketing purposes, but actually have no clue how their oils are made because the oils come from a broker (which are almost always diluted in solvents). Transparency is key.
I highly encourage you to check out our How To Find Quality Essential Oils post for in-depth information about why quality matters, and what to look for.
Where we purchase our essential oils, and why
We purchase our oils through Young Living because they set a higher standard for essential oils than what the rest of the industry expects. Their Seed to Seal guarantee is unmatched, and shows their dedication to a farm-to-table type of approach.

They are totally transparent in their processes, and even open their farms so you can see for yourself (or involve yourself in the process).
