8 BEST essential oils to help you GET to sleep and STAY asleep all night long!

 

Sleep.
We know we need it.  We TRY to get it, but often times it’s the FALLING asleep that is so hard!

Welcome to the wonderful world of essential oils and SLEEP!
Here are my 8 BEST essential oils to help you GET to sleep as well as STAY asleep!  (All the tired mamas say AMEN!!!!)


Why is this important before bed?
Because of how QUICKLY THEY WORK!

When you breathe essential oils in AROMATICALLY, those molecules reach your brain within 22 seconds.  This helps you in a number of ways to relax, unwind, let go of stress and feel peaceful before you lay your head on that soft, squishy pillow.  I love the aromatic benefits due to the fact that they directly affect the Limbic System of your brain.  In a nutshell, that means these simple little oils help to balance and control your mood and emotions!  Sit back, sniff and say ahhhhhhh!  Great for adults as well as your little’s!

Lullaby blend for those DIFFICULT nights!

 

 

Another great way to use essential oils for sleep is a TOPICAL APPLICATION!  Why!?  Because when you use essential oils topically and they sink into  your skin, they start to service EVERY cell within your body within 2 minutes!  That means after about 20 minutes, these little beauties are circulating into your bloodstream, helping to naturally balance out your bodily systems!  Talk about an amazing way to drift off into peaceful sleep!
*When using oils on children, ALWAYS use a carrier oil!  (This is called dilution.)  These oils are so potent and power-packed, we want to make sure their little bodies can absorb them rightly!  Plus it extends the life of your oils, thus saving you money.  WIN WIN MAMA!  Win win!*

The trick is finding what oils YOUR body chemistry specifically desires!  SO GET CREATIVE!  Try these combos listed and don’t be afraid to see what YOU best respond to!

Here are some great blends for the whole family!

 

So if you have been struggling with sleeping through the night and are sick and tired of trying all those crazy pills, grab that lovely bottle of Lavender or splash some Frankincense on your neck and give it a whirl!  2 years strong and I looooooove me some deep sleep!

Make sure to comment below with YOUR favorite ways to use essential oils to drift off into sleep!

**Note** Bergamot is extremely photosensitive, which means it can make your skin very sensitive to the sun. Therefore, avoid applying bergamot before going outside, or only apply to covered skin.
