No, essential oils cannot cure mental illness but I believe they can certainly make it more bearable. In my own experience, essential oils have been an aid in relieving and managing my triggers and moods. Frankly, they have been a game changer. I thank my psychotherapist for recommending their use. My life has improved.

Oils for bipolar and moods:

Lavender - soothing and balancing, both anti-anxiety and anti-depressant.
Lemon - energizing anti-depressant.
Digize - calming
Frankincense - calming, improves inner-strength and sense of spirit
Peppermint - uplifting and soothing

Most of these I simply diffuse into the air but some are good for directly applying to the skin while others are even safe to ingest. Please email me for information on usage and application.

Absentmindedness, confusion, and memory impairment. An ever present 'brain fog' due likely to medications. I don't feel as sharp as I used to be. I'm forgetful - sometimes even forgetting words mid sentence.

It's not just embarrassing but has become limiting too.

I've had some improvment since I started using essential oils. Peppermint and Frankincense are among those I use the most often. And now, reading recommendations for absentmindedness I have discovered they too are at the top of the list. In addition to diffusing, these can be applied to the temples. Interesting as the same oils and applications are recommended for increasing alertness.

Do you experience a loss of brain function due to medication(s)? Mental fatigue? What have you had success with to repair or alleviate this?

Well it's been a hectic week of tumbling emotions. Negative, sad, stressful, and exciting stimuli all at once. I've kept it together though. I say it is chalked up to a combination of coping strategies; my CBT, distraction, and the "Five Senses" approach. Of course, a big part of that has been the Aromatherapy. Oils diffused in the room, oils in the bath, and oils on my wrists. I am managing - and managing well.

I like incense. I managed to find an incense that smelled something like perfumes. Really nice. The makers are Buckley and Phillips Aromatics.
