Finding Sleep with Essential Oils

As a working mother of an active and precocious toddler, and wife to a hardworking husband, I know life can get crazy. At the end of the day, even when exhausted, both me and my family sometimes need a little help winding down and shutting our brains off. 

Sleep time rituals, with the help of aromatherapy and essential oils, have become a regular and essential part of our lives.  

I put some calming music on, dim the lights, give the little one a bath with some calming oils, the adults sip on some herbal teas, and I diffuse some calming oils. It settles my active little family right down. It even settles our over anxious PTSD rescue dog right down! 

Essential oils can create a calm and relaxing environment, and some are especially good for getting a good nights sleep.  When using essential oils for sleep, you can increase the effectiveness by creating an environment more condusive to sleep, and creating a nighttime routine. Ways to do this include turning off the tv and electronics, lowering the lights, putting on some relaxing music (we love healing frequency music!) and even doing a little meditation, prayer, or yoga. 

Here are some of our favorite essential oils for a good night’s rest: 

Lavender Essential Oil

Calming and relaxing, lavender creates a peaceful environment, easing stress and tension, helping you get to sleep.
