What Essential Oils help with sleep?
This is a question as a seller of Essential Oils that I am asked often and it is a very well thought out question as many people do not sleep well at night. When I first started using Essential Oils, I had always struggled with sleep. I would wake up groggy in the morning as I could never get a full nights rest. I would toss and turn at night and my mind would never be at ease. May I add I would put toxic sleeping pills in my system to only form a habit that the box said “non habit-forming”. If I was sleeping well throughout the night, I could never quickly fall asleep. So, this begged the question for me, What Essential Oils would help me sleep and also how would I use them?
What Essential Oils did I use to help me sleep?
Lavender, Stress Away, Peace and Calming are all great Essential Oils to help you sleep. If you are using pure quality Essential Oils, not some oil you find on the shelf at Wal-Mart but a pure oil from a reputable source such as YoungLiving will help you sleep well at night. Lavender is a natural sedative…well lavender is good for just about anything, it is the Swiss army knife of Essential Oils. Stress Away just soothes you and peace and Calming helps when thoughts will not leave your head…but the number one Essential Oil for sleep is Lavender.
Lavender Essential Oil Uses
Lavender is an anti-fungal, antimicrobial, and sedative to just name a few properties of the hundred it has. This is oil that can knock you out at night when you are having trouble sleeping. The question though is how do I use it?
Using Lavender Essential Oil
I have three uses for it to help with sleep. I will put 5-8 drops into a 20-30 oz spray bottle of water and lightly spray my bed comforters. You can also put 3-4 drops onto the bottom of your feet and your wrists, but what works the best is to diffuse it. With your YoungLiving diffuser, I will take 4-5 drops and diffuse it next to my bed for a good nights sleep.
Stress Away Essential Oil
This is one of my favorite oils. It has a vanilla smell to it and is actually a mix of several Essential oils. It is a blend of Copaiba, Lime, Cedar Wood, Ocotea, Lavender, and Vanilla. When Lavender is not in my hands for sleep, then this is. It is a powerful blend. For this oil I will usually smell it from the bottle and diffuse it. You can apply it topically, but why when it smells so good in a YoungLiving Diffuser. Anyways this Essential Oil will help you distress after a long day and help you have restful sleep.
Peace and Calming Essential Oil
This is my third choice of an Essential Oil for sleep and is another blend of Essential oils. It contains Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Blue Tansy. I will apply this under my nose, back of my neck and my feet and as always I will always diffuse this Essential Oil as well. When you need a little calming and are angry about a situation in life and can not sleep, or your mind is racing a thousand miles per hour, this is the oil for you.
Welp, that’s a rap.
That is it guys, short and sweet to the point. If you want to know how to sleep well at night I recommend using Young Living Essential Oils and the oils above are the oils I would use for a nice restful sleep.
