Essential Oils for Restful Sleep


There are so many essential oils that you can use to promote restful sleep but lately, my top three are Balance - Grounding Blend, Serenity - Restful Blend, and an old fan favorite, Lavender.  

My favorite ways to use them are…

  • Placing about 5 drops of the essential oil in my cool mist diffuser that lives at my bedside.
  • Taking a few drops of the essential oil with fractionated coconut oil and rubbing it on the bottoms of my feet. I do this just as I am ready to get under the covers and I’m asleep in 5…4…3…2…zzzzz

Why are these so good for sleep? It’s the calming effects on the physical body as well as the emotional body and mind as they are soothing to the nervous system.  Here is how I make sense of it… the grounding oils come from trees and roots of plants, like vetiver and cedarwood for example.  When I think of a tall, grounded, rooted tree, I think of strength, stability and calm.  The effects of the essential oils are in direct correlation with where they grow and what part of the plant they come from… trippy right?  I think it’s the coolest.
