Vetiver has helped me through many panic attacks, and while this is beyond the normal panic attack, it still helped bring the heaving sobs under control. Citrus oils can increase GABA levels in the brain and help with anger, frustration, and depression. True cedarwood,Cedrus atlantica not Juniperus virginia, has a slightly sweet woodsy scent (I like it better than the Juniperus Virginia, and it is superior for skin/scalp uses). It blends beautifully with citrus oils. It helps when you feel chaotic and need to feel stable. While Juniperus virginia is calming and can help with insomnia, Cedrus atlantica is energizing. It helps with depression and exhaustion. It helps with hopelessness.
