Tips for Nervous Flyers

Are You a Nervous Flyer?

Fear of flying is a common question I get asked about at this time of year. Some people are just a bit nervous and for others it borders on terror. There is I think, for most of us the nerves around travel which are usually associated with getting to the airport or meeting point on time, or did you pack your passport, tickets, or medications. You know you have everything because you have checked a thousand times already. But this doesn’t stop your heart stopping when you are nearly half way there when it pops into your head again, did I pack my passport? I think this is quite normal but for those of you that experience fear around travel there are some supplements that might help.

Natural remedies for nervous flyers

Rescue Remedy drops, spray, or Rescue Remedy Pastilles have been a life saver for many people. You can take them frequently before the flight and the lozenges are great to suck when the journey starts. A.Vogel Passiflora Spray is another option, it contains Passiflora and Lemon Balm two of nature’s calming agents. Soloray L-Theanine is a good choice if you are bordering on a panic attack. You can take a couple of tablets throughout the day. I would start these supplements as soon as you feel any nervousness about your journey. If you are really nervous and fearful you might need a mix of all three of these supplements.

Essential Oils for Relaxation

If you can’t take supplements, you could try Tisserand Lavender oil, Lavender is traditionally used to aid relaxation and to create a sense of calmness. You can across place a drop of oil on your the temples and wrists and breathe in the aroma to help you relax. Or you might prefer the Mind Clear Pulse Point Roller Ball, this is a great solution for when you feel stressed and pressured and your head feels heavy. This cooling blend combines 100% natural pure essential oils of revitalising Peppermint, soothing Lavender and uplifting Lemon, to relieve pressure and sharpen the mind.

Either option is a handy size to pop in your pocket, handbag or keep at work to help you find your calm during those trying moments.

Crystals for a safe journey

Carrying a healing crystal is a popular choice, especially for nervous children. There are several that you could choose from but my favourite would be blue lace agate. This is a beautiful crystal with a pale blue colour. It has a gentle, calming effective and eases nervousness when held or worn. It’s a great crystal to choose for anxiety, stress, and for overwhelming emotions.

Remember to breath. Deep breathing will aid relaxation and help take your mind off the situation.
