OCD is a type of anxiety disorder that leads a person into a repetitive cycle of thoughts and compulsions that, for the person, need to be performed almost ritualistically. The person may well be aware of the cycle but often feel a strong urge to repeat them even to the point of disrupting their normal life.

Some of the unusual thoughts or fears are fear of germs or disease, fear of failure, a need for orderliness, a need to count or enumerate or a need for reassurance. These thoughts can lead to compulsions such as repeated washing or cleaning, unwillingness to touch others or things, constantly counting or rearranging, feeling a need to do routine tasks (eating or toiletries) in a specific order or collecting certain items.

Oils & Blends:   Cypress, Frankincense, Geranium, Lavender, Patchouli, Ylang Ylang

Also consider: Bergamot, Sandalwood

Suggested protocols:

Many suggest using Patchouli, Grounding Blend or another of the recommended oils in a roller bottle and applying it behind the ears, on the wrists or on the bottoms of the feet 2 or 3 times daily.

If the odor is inviting rubbing 2 – 3 drops on the palms of the hands and cupping them over the nose and inhaling deeply is another successful application technique.
