Almost anyone you talk to now days complains about not enough sleep at one time or another. Is this a problem you have?
Not enough sleep! What is your issue? There can be so many reasons why a person is not getting enough sleep. Do you have issues with mind chatter? Some nights I lay awake and think of all of the things I need to do the next day or maybe the stresses going on in my life.
Do you know your sleep issues
Are you one of those people who set the alarm and wake up every hour worrying your alarm won’t go off.
Or maybe you are a mom with little kids that just can’t settle in and sleep all night. Whatever the cause may be one of these oils may help you.
I know you are thinking — how could an oil help me sleep better? I promise you I used to be very skeptical. I have been using essential oils for over 25 years. But I didn’t always use them. I had a friend that tried for a couple of years to get me to try them. Finally, I gave in and went to a class. I was hooked.
A few oils to try
We have used essential oils ever since for a variety of issues. They are inexpensive and last a long time. Here are a few that we have tried for sleep.
Lavender – almost everyone has heard of using lavender to help you and your children relax and sleep. Lavender is a calming herb, but remember if you use too much (a drop or two with a carrier oil is all that is needed) it can go the other direction and you may be up all night.
Tranquility – the name itself sounds great! Do you have mind chatter and can’t relax
and go to sleep. Maybe this one is a possibility.
GoodNite – worried about emotional things going on in your life? GoodNite helps promote restful sleep and may bring feelings of peace.
Dreams – Tired of those odd dreams? Maybe yours are caused by negative emotions or nightmares. Dreams may promote a restful dreamless night sleep.
Whatever the reason may be for your lack of sleep, maybe one of these oils could be the answer. There are many others that may possibly help. Be sure to always use a carrier oil. This could be coconut oil, almond oil or many others. It is very important to use common sense and study the information before use.
