Aromatherapy brings better sleep

Aromatherapy can help transport you to dreamland 

Tossing and turning in bed is more than aggravating, it can damage your health. Aromatherapy can help make a third of your life better by allowing you to drift into dreamland with greater ease. Using essential oils can help you maintain levels of peace, remove the day’s stress, and sleep more soundly so you feel fully refreshed in the morning. But just which scents are best?

Relaxing Essential Oils

There are many essential oils that can help you have a good night’s sleep, but Sandalwood, Sage and Bergamot are considered the most relaxing of all. Each has beneficial properties separately, but you may also combine all three.

Sandalwood has soothing properties to help reduce feelings of stress. Since stress is one of the leading causes of restless nights, working with this scent can help keep your worries in check so you can sleep throughout the night.

Clary sage is distilled from Salvia, a plant that is known to have a relaxing effect. It’s a popular essential oil because it can help induce feelings of extreme well-being.

Bergamot is extracted from the rind of a Mediterranean citrus fruit. Like other citrus scents, it’s refreshing, but bergamot also has properties that confer euphoric feelings and calm the mood, producing an uplifted, relaxed state that’s ideal for sleep.

Although each of these oils offers distinct benefits, they are most beneficial used together. Here are some tips for working with these essential oils just before bedtime.

Aromatic Cotton Ball by Bedside: 

Add a drop of these oils to a tissue or cotton ball and place it on your nightstand or near your pillow at bedtime

Bed Linen Spray

Spray your bed linens with a calming scent made by combining these oils in a spray bottle. Take a 4 oz., clean spray bottle, add 30-40 drops of essential oil to 3 fl. oz. of distilled water, and lightly spray your sheets before bedtime.

Massage

A vigorous massage stimulates the circulation and should be avoided immediately before trying to fall asleep. However, a gentle massage to your feet and legs with scented oils or lotion can help soothe and bring on the sandman.

What to Avoid

There are some essential oils that are known to be energizing, and these should be avoided like caffeine before bed. These include cypress, rosemary, grapefruit, lemon, and peppermint.

It’s important to be aware that Aromatherapy doesn’t cure insomnia or its root causes. The use of calming and relaxing essential oils before bedtime can potentially help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep through to the time you actually planned to wake up. Difficulty falling or staying asleep can result from a hectic lifestyle, or stress, or even a disruption in your unusual work schedule, but there also may be underlying physical illness. If you are experiencing an ongoing sleep disorder, seek the help of a health professional who can help assess your situation and explore treatment for the issues that are causing your lack of sleep.
