Sleep. Something we all wish we got more of. And with all the stress, anxiety, and general stir-craziness, you might feel like your sleep is worse than normal. There are some natural ways you can support better sleep, like turning off your devices at least thirty minutes before bed (which is the worst but so worth it) and sticking to a sleep schedule. Another amazing way to catch some better ZZZZs is to start diffusing before bed. Essential oils can help create a calming atmosphere and help you unwind and relax after a long day.
This Plant Therapy Sleep Aid synergy was created to help you to calm your mind and body into relaxation before sleep. Being fully relaxed can lead to a better quality and depth of sleep.
Plant Therapy Sleep Aid is a blend of Lavender, Mandarin, Ylang Ylang, Valerian Root, and Neroli. Valerian Root is an incredible aid for sleeping, though its unique aroma isn’t favored by everyone. However, if a deep, hard sleep is what you’re after, this is the blend for you!
Ylang Ylang – The incredibly sweet and floral fragrance of Ylang Ylang is excellent for calming the mind and reducing feelings of worries. If you love flowery-smelling oils, this quickly may become one of your favorite before-bedtime-oils! It supports a lifted mood and a warm and open heart so that you can drift off into dreamland with good thoughts in your head. Its exotic, tropical, floral aroma
Neroli is the perfect essential oil for when you need a break from the world. This absolutely delightful and vibrant floral essential oil comes from orange blossoms found in Egypt. It is one of the most comforting and effective essential oils when dealing with grief, nervous tension, or exhaustion. Beautiful orange blossom floral scent
Mandarin – The fresh, bright aroma of Mandarin is incredibly wonderful for soothing and mellowing the mind and body before bed. When you’ve had a long day and just need some peace of mind before laying down, inhaling Mandarin is a great way to reduce nervous tension.
Valerian Root essential oil is useful in a diffuser blend to help promote deep relaxation before sleep. It can also help to focus scattered energy and quiet the “mind chatter” of a hectic lifestyle. Due to its pungent scent, it is best used as part of a blend. Valerian Root has a strong spicy, earthy, musky scent characteristic of an oil derived from a root.
Lavender has a well-known reputation to promote a good night of sleep. Its relaxing properties are perfect for helping to reduce feelings of stress after a long day and help you drift into dreamland
Diffusing in your bedroom about a half hour before going to sleep is a great way to enjoy all of the relaxing benefits your blend has to offer. And can it get any easier? Plant Therapy oils are already perfectly blended for you, so all you have to do is add a few drops into your diffuser of choice, turn it on, and leave. Just remember to follow the directions of your specific diffuser to get the best and safest results.
Evening bath? Yes, please!
Believe it or not, using essential oils in the bath isn’t a difficult process. At its most basic level, all you really need is a bit of body wash (unscented preferably) and your chosen blend. For one tablespoon of body wash, add 9 drops of your blend for a 2% dilution. You can also choose to add 4 drops for a 1% dilution. Make it extra relaxing by adding half a cup of Epsom or Himalayan salt in your bath.
Use one drop on a cotton ball or tissue placed near the headboard of your bed, or dilute to 3% with your favourite carrier oil and massage into the soles of your feet. Sleep Aid can also be used in your evening bath.
Many people have turned to CBD as a way to naturally support healthy sleep, without having to resort to harsh over-the-counter sleep aids.
CBD is not a sedative in the technical sense. Instead, CBD helps supports balance in your entire body by interacting with your body’s endocannabinoid system, which means potentially better overall functioning, and better sleep.
If your issue is the quality of your sleep, supporting your endocannabinoid system with CBD may help you get a good night’s rest. CBD offers people suffering from sleep issues a more natural, gentler option than prescription sleep aids.
