Many essential oils have calming properties and promote relaxation. Essential oils such as Lavender and Frankincense can relieve stress and anxiety, helping our bodies enter a restful state, ready for sleep. As essential oils are natural, they don’t come with some of the negative side effects often associated with sleep medications. Therefore, essential oils promote a healthy sleep.
The easiest way to use essential oils to help improve sleep is by diffusing in your bedroom. Simply add a few drops of your favourite oil in your diffuser to create an ambient atmosphere, perfect for preparing the body for sleep. You can use essential oils in your shower for steam inhalation or add a drop to your pillow. Learn more about how to create a sleep ritual on our blog.
