4 Handbag Remedies to Help Anxiety

4 Handbag Remedies to Help with Anxiety 

Anxiety is something that can effect anyone during their life time.  It can be triggered by many physical, emotional and environmental factors - all of which will be unique to an individual.  Some people due to their genetics, experiences/nutrition in utero or in early childhood, or environmental toxicity, may become increasingly sensitized to stress, and find it hard to regulate emotions in every day situations.  For some individuals this can lead to a range of symptoms from panic attacks, digestive issues, chronic pain, insomnia or chronic fatigue.  

My personal journey with anxiety started after having my first child and in high-insight was undoubtedly connected to my elevated thyroid antibodies that I didn't know I had.  Having anxiety is very isolating, as many family and friends struggle to see why the things that bother you re so debilitating, when to many people they seem quite small.  In particular anxiety about you health and the health of your children can feel overwhelming.  Some days are good and some are bad, and until you start to work hard to identify your triggers, it becomes even more scary that anxiety can strike at any time.  I found for me the worst time of the day was at night.  Either I would wake up feeling like I was anxious about something (not sure what it was) and then suffer hours of tossing and turning worrying about small things in my life, or I would get full blown panic attacks as I would try and fall asleep, leaving me scared to even try and fall asleep as I was convinced I would die in my sleep.  

I have tried lots of different  remedies but these have worked best for me to get me out of a downward spiral once I feel the anxiety starting to build.  I keep things generally in control by trying to eat healthily (for me the more sugar and carbohydrates I eat the worse things get) by balancing my blood sugar with proteins and healthy fat.  I am also very strict about sticking to a gluten free ideally a grain free diet to keep the inflammation in my body and brain low.  I take probiotics to keep my gut healthy and a daily herbal remedy to help balance my thyroid.  I have now learned to try and avoid situations where my anxiety will take a hold, but sometimes this is unavoidable.  

Here are my 4 handbag remedies that help me through an anxiety attack.  

Essential Oils

I keep a rollerball of these 4 oils in my handbag to use on my neck, behind the ears and pulse points if I feel my anxiety starting to build.  Sometimes I will diffuse Wild Orange & Peppermint or just pop a drop in my hands and smell it which helps calm and focus me.  I also use Lavender at night on my feet to help lower my cortisol and calm me before bedtime. If I feel very spaced out and unfocused I also take 1 drop of frankincense internally to help clam my brain.  

Rollerball Bottle Recipe: 10 drops Frankincense, 12 drops Wild Orange, 8 drops Lavender and 4 drops Peppermint.  I mix these in a 5 ml bottle (use a 10ml bottle if you have sensitive skin) and fill the rest with fractionated coconut oil.  I get my supplies from doTERRA and my rollerballs from Amazon.  

Homeopathic Remedies

I really love using homeopathic remedies and they work well for us as a family.  I always carry round these two remedies in my handbag and take them at the first sign of a panic attack.  I use Aconite and AAA (Argent Nit, Ambra Grisea, Anacardium) Remedy at 200c potency.  I would always suggest working with a qualified homeopath to get constitutional support, but these can work well for panic attacks and feelings of fear.  I alternate between the two remedies every 5 minutes for a bad attack or a few times a day during periods of drawn out stress.  I usually get my remedies from Helios Homeopathic Pharmacy as they have a great telephone advice service too where you can discuss your symptoms and get professional advice.

Vitamins and Minerals

My go to nutrient bomb for both allergies and anxiety is Vitamin C, Magnesium & Calcium.  I find this combination works quite quickly.  Some people find a high dose B5 supplement will also help calm them down.  As an adult I take up to 1000mg Vitamin C, 200mg Biofood Magnesium and 400mg of Wholefood Calcium (these amounts would not be the same for synthetic Vitamins & Minerals). As they are food state supplements they work quickly and it does not matter if they are taken on an empty stomach in the middle of the night.  Vitamin C supports the adrenal glands, calcium can be very calming and magnesium helps to relax muscles.  If I can have an Epsom Salt bath that also helps as it is high in magnesium (although strictly speaking that would not fit in my handbag!).  I get my supplements from Cytoplan - click here to find out why I choose them.  I keep these in a little pill box in my bag and will take them if I feel things building up.  You could safely double this dose in a day if needed for an adult.  


I love my Headspace App and as it is on my phone (in my handbag) I can take myself away for 5 minutes and reset my self by listening in even just for a small period of time.  There are specific exercises for Anxiety to help you train yourself to remain mindful during periods of stress and anxiety. It is worth spending time doing the longer exercises to build yourself up, so that you can use the SOS exercises when you get really stuck.

My last top tip is to drink plenty of water and not let myself get too hungry.  Often anxiety is worse when we are dehydrated as our kidneys and adrenals are having to work too hard.  If you suffer from anxiety the temptation is to push on through it and trust me it only makes things worse.  If your car starts feeling sluggish, you would pull over, let it rest and check it out to see what is going wrong.  You need to take the same philosophy with your body.
