Need Sleep? I know just what you need!
Here are 7 tips on how to use essential oils to get a better night’s sleep.
1. Use An Essential Oil Diffuser.
You can purchase a diffuser (often called aromatherapy diffusers) that puts the essential oil into the air around you.
There are many brands of diffusers available. Click here for my pick on diffusers.
2. Massage Some Essential Oils Onto Your Forehead.
You can simply add a drop or two to some of your favorite lotions and rub it on your forehead.
It can also be diluted in some oil that you may have around the house, like coconut oil or olive oil, before rubbing it on your forehead.
3. Massage Essential Oils On Your Feet.
Use the same dilution method as you would use to put the oil on your forehead, but rub it on your feet.
When you put it on your feet, the smell still travels up, but through the pressure points on your feet that match to the rest of your body, you’ll get a lot more relaxation so you can go to sleep.
4. Mix Essential Oils With Epsom Salt For A Soak.
Try taking a nice hot bath with your essential oil. Add several drops of essential oils with a cup of Epsom salt into your bath at night. You’ll feel so relaxed when you use this method.
5. Use Some Essential Oils In Your Massage Oil.
This is a great way to get to sleep, especially if you have a partner to help apply the massage oil. Try mixing your chosen oil with some jojoba or sweet almond oil for your massage.
6. Spray Some Essential Oils On Your Pillow.
A fast way to get the essential oils into your system so that they can work is to mix some distilled water and drops of your oil to the right strength for your use, then spray on your pillow.
7. Use Some Essential Oils In A Humidifier.
Some humidifiers are made to add essential oils. Ensure you have the right kind then use it in the evening when conditions are right such as dry winter nights.
In conclusion, using essential oils to help you get to sleep at night is preferable to using prescription or over-the-counter medications that come with many side effects and even potential addiction issues. Essential oils have been used for sleep problems for hundreds of years! And, they work! There are so many different oils you can try such as lavender, citrus or peppermint.
