Depression. It’s an affliction that millions and millions of people deal with all around the world. Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, anti-anxiety medications, and other prescription drugs – maybe you’ve tried them. But did you know, there are natural antidepressants that work just as fast (generally faster) and effective than the plethora of chemically-induced drugs out there?
Essential oils – the natural antidepressant alternative
There are a number of organic depression treatments available in today’s growingly natural society. Some of them work, and others are, well, home remedies that seem a little on the questionable side. Maybe you’ve already been duped by the scams.
Essential oils, when using the right type and brand, are helping thousands of people deal with depression. Before we get into the most effective natural antidepressant, let’s look at a few facts and statistics about the unfortunate reality of anxiety and emotional disorders:
- Among the most common mental illnesses, clinical depression plagues nearly 20 million Americans every year. This includes everything from dysthymia to manic depressive disorders to mild, lingering types of depression.
- Depression is an issue that can affect anyone, regardless of age, including any ethnic group.
- Emotional illness impacts all aspects of people’s lives, and can even lead to greater medical issues in the future.
With that in mind, know that you’re not alone. And essential oils are, in our opinion, the most impactful and empowering natural solution for dealing with both anxiety and depression.

What essential oils are the best?
First, I’ll rattle off a few of the most popular organic oils for treating depression. While there are a host of products that deliver antidepressant benefits, these are some of the top organic alternatives:
All of these products offer their own therapeutic benefits. Lavender and Orange would be two of the more effective and affordable solutions. Frankincense is also quite effective, particularly when depression is coupled with a form of social anxiety.
If you’re new to essential oils, Lavender would one of your best bets, due to its affordability and its numerous other advantages. In addition to helping with depression, it can offer benefits for issues like insomnia, anxiety, and general restlessness. And if you use a therapeutic grade brand, you’ll experience the authenticity of a powerfully potent solution.
