|Sleep is one of those things that every living thing needs (even plants) and, as humans, our lives can become so busy and overwhelmed with making a living or spending time with our family, or even health concerns like insomnia, that we don't get enough shuteye at night time. There are many factors at play that could be causing a person to not get enough sleep, and it's always a good idea to get this checked out by a doctor or other health professional if you're concerned.
But what about natural products that can help promote an environment that is relaxing and even comforting enough to help you sleep? One such product are known as essential oils. If you're new to essential oils, check out the essential oils page of this website to learn more about them or feel free to reach out and let me know you would like more information.
Many essential oils contain compounds that have well-known relaxing properties. These oils can be diffused aromatically in the bedroom to create a calming and peaceful environment, perfect for getting a good night’s sleep. They can also be used topically and taken internally to calm the nervous system, promote relaxation, and lead to a restful sleep.
Let's take a closer look at three oils that can help promote a good night sleep:
Vetiver, Bergamot, and Lavender
Tip: Diffuse 2-3 drops of Vetiver at bedtime for a peaceful sleep
Tip: Apply to the bottom of your feet with fractionated coconut oil before bedtime
Tip: Add to bath water to soak away stress or apply to the temples and the back of the neck.
In addition to the three essential oils explored in this article, there are many others that can create a restful environment in the bedroom to help you sleep, including combining oils or using blends.
