Tinnitus is noise or ringing in the ears. It is a more common problem that some might think. The Mayo Clinic states that it is affecting about 1 in every 5 people. Tinnitus involves sensations of sound when no external evidence of sound is present.
Tinnitus isn’t a disorder itself. It is a symptom, often related to hearing loss, ear injuries, or circulatory issues. it’s a symptom of an underlying condition, such as age-related hearing loss, ear injury or a circulatory system disorder. In many cases, the cause is unknown, though it does often trace back to inner ear cell damage.
Other causes of Tinnitus may include chronic health issues, and injuries or conditions that involve auditory nerves or the hearing center in your brain. Treatments may include removing ear wax, identifying vascular conditions (those having to do with the circulatory system) and treating them, or possibly removing medication one may be on which may appear to be the cause of the Tinnitus. Many drugs have Tinnitus as a side effect.
Stress seems to be the main source for continued and worsening Tinnitus. Alcohol can also agrivate the condition by increasing the increasing the force of the blood flow, especially in the inner ear. Eliminating or greatly reducing alcohol, and finding ways to manage one’s stress, be it through exercise, relaxation, meditation, or other means, usually provides some relief.
How Can Essential oils Assist with Tinnitus*?

Aromas of pure essential oils entering the nose immediately stimulate the olfactory nerves, which then alert the Limbic system, which responds with a natural healing process within the entire body.
