Last week, I just closed my laptop after working late and my brain was going 1,000 miles per hour. I quickly checked the clock – just enough time to get in bed and squeak in five hours of sleep! I raced through my nightly routine and my head hit the pillow in under 5 minutes.
Except I didn’t go to sleep.
Sleep problems? There’s an oil for that.
Essential oils can bring peace to your mind and put the parking break on your brain because essential oils can pass the blood-brain barrier. They certainly helped me overcome my insomnia last week.
I asked some friends on social media to share their favorite bed-time recipes:
Combined with some of my personal favorites and from the comments on our Facebook, we’ve come up with some great 1-2 punch combination of recipes you can diffuse that may help you sleep just a little easier.
Lemon + Lavender: 1 drop lemon, and 2-3 drops Lavender
Lavender + Cedarwood: 2 drops Lavender, and 2 drops Cedarwood
Lavender + Lemon + Cypress + Bergamot: 2 drops Lavender, 1 drop Lemon, 2 drops Cypress, and 1-2 drops Bergamot
Dream Catcher blend: 2 drops of the Dream Catcher blend
I’ve personally tried three of them, and obviously Lavender is the common thread.
Are there any blends that you swear by?
