Do you lie in bed at night and struggle to slow down your mind? Do you hit the snooze button in the morning feeling too exhausted to get up? Having trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, and getting the right amount of sleep are all issues that plague over 33% of our stressed, electronically driven, modern society. When we are deprived of sleep, there is a broad range of negative impacts on virtually every system of the body, including the brain. Using essential oils to promote sleep (instead of drugs) gives your body a natural and balanced way to rest.
Essential oils like Lavender and Bergamot are rich in linalool and linalyl acetate: compounds that have well-known relaxing properties. A recent study found that inhaling Lavender prior to bedtime can have a long-acting rebalancing effect on the sleep cycle. DoTerra makes a blend called Serenity Restful Complex which combines Lavender and L-Theanine (a compound shown to help subjects stay asleep and get higher quality sleep) along with lemon balm, passionflower, and chamomile. If you don’t have this specific blend, create your own! Essential oils can be diffused aromatically, taken internally, or sprinkled on your pillow to create a peaceful environment, relaxation, and the essential sweet dreams you desire!
