What is epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a brain disorder that causes seizures. The cells of the brain use electric signals to communicate. A seizure might be described as wrong electrical signal sent. It leads to abnormal movements or sensations, as the nerves also not function correctly. A seizure can last for seconds or minutes and results in violent convulsions of the body and loss of consciousness (in the worst case). A seizure can be very dangerous (especially if you are driving or swimming while it happens).

We strongly recommend you to see a doctor and not attempt to treat epilepsy. Some essential oils might be useful to alleviate symptoms, but this does not replace medical advice for such disease.

We take the opportunity to let you know more about the essential oils that you should NOT be using.

Essential oils for epilepsy

Some essential oils are anti-convulsive (notably Lavender essential oil). If you want to give it a try, the safest solution is to diffuse the essential oils into the air using a diffuser, or do inhalations. This might help reduce frequency and severity of crisis. Using oils in a diffuser can be especially useful at night, in the room of an epileptic child.

We want to add a security warning in this article. Indeed, there are several essential oils that can provoke an epileptic reaction. Therefore, it is extremely important to AVOID USING THE FOLLOWING ESSENTIAL OILS if you suffer from epilepsy:

  • Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus)
  • Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare)
  • Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis)
  • Pennyroyal (Mentha pulegium)
  • Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)
  • Sage (Salvia officinalis)
  • Thuja (Thuya occidentalis)
  • Wormwood (Artemesia absinthium)
