Natural Sleep Remedies to Unwind Before Sleeping
Looking for natural sleep remedies for occasional sleeplessness?
Or help unwinding before bed time?
Do you have Occasional Sleeplessness?
Well, you have come to the right place! Essential oils can help you relax and unwind before you go to bed and calm the mind to promote relaxation.
Our quality of sleep is affected by:
What we eat and drink (caffeine and heavy meals before bed will keep me up)
What we do before bed (exercising right before will keep me up, but exercising during the day helps me sleep better)
What we have next to our bed (bright alarm clock or night lights may disrupt your sleep)
Our ability to release and ERASE stress
So, my suggestion is, look at that list and determine if there is something else you can do in addition to using the oils. :)
So, what are best oils for Calming the Mind before Bed Time?
My top choices are listed below. Click on the specific oil to see how to use it and find other helpful tips!
Lavender Essential Oil
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Vetiver Essential Oil
Roman Chamomile Essential Oil
Marjoram Essential Oil
Select one or two oils to use and see what works best for you since everyone is different. My favorite oils are lavender and Calming Blend. Usually I put several drops in my palm and smell it then put a drop or two on my pillow.
Here are some other oil tips to fall asleep with:
Take a relaxing bath before bed with Epsom salts and your favorite calming oil
Place several drops of oil on your feet or your palms
Diffuse oil throughout the room
These oils can also be used on all your family members and furry ones too.
