Lots of us, including me, struggle to have a good night's sleep.
Here are my favourite essential oils for a better night’s sleep 🌿
If you are not a trained Aromatherapist, blend any of the oils below by adding 2 drops of essential oil in 5mls of carrier oil. You can massage the blend into your neck and shoulders or add it to your bath. Alternatively, add a couple of drops to your vaporiser.
Sweet Marjoram - if racing thoughts are keeping you awake, Marjoram should help to quieten down your mind.
Lavender - this oil is a favourite for many sleep products. Use sparingly as too much Lavender oil will have the opposite effect and keep you awake!
Clary Sage - perfect if you’re feeling emotional and low - NOTE! do not use when pregnant.
Frankincense- very calming and soothing - this oil helps you unwind and calms the nervous system 🌿
Roman Camomile - a lovely oil for those of you suffering stress and anxiety, also excellent for relief of menopausal symptoms such as night sweats and insomnia.
Patchouli - use one drop only as Patchouli is highly odiferous. Patchouli is grounding and calming.
There are lots of other oils you could use, these are just a few recommendations.
