Firework Stress is Real

Epsilon Acupuncture Fireworks and holiday hours

Feeling stressed out by the loud noise, flashing lights, and crowds is a very normal response for people and animals.  Some enjoy the stimulation and excitement, but many do not.  Some veterans or anyone with PTSD may even have severe reactions.  

Over the Counter Options

Homeopathic aconitum can be soothing to the stress of loud noises and shocking events.  This is often available in stores such as Natural Grocers or New Seasons.

Rescue Remedy is a more general product for stress and anxiety.  It is often given to pets in their water bowl, and is also great for humans.

What We Carry

It can be helpful to carry a bottle of essential oils with you if you are prone to stress.  The olfactory pathway is linked to the limbic brain and central nervous system.  Smells can help to calm stress and distance ourselves from traumatic memories and be more relaxed and grounded.
