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