Natural Sleep Aid

5 drops Lavender oil

5 drops Bergamot oil

5 drops Sandalwood oil

When you mix this blend in a diffuser near you bed, you’ll feel yourself naturally growing more tired. Lavender can expedite the process of falling asleep while bergamot oil reduces muscle tension, allowing your body to feel more relaxed. Sandalwood induces a state of mental clarity and can decrease blood pressure. This combination of essential oils will quickly send you off to dreamland.

Stress Relief

5 drops Chamomile oil

5 drops Frankincense oil

3 drops Rose oil

Even when your body feels tired, it can sometimes be hard to sleep due to stress. When you diffuse this mixture in your bedroom, it will help to quiet your mind and relax your body, making it much easier for you to fall asleep. Chamomile fights anxiety, frankincense helps induce a meditative state and rose oil increases tranquility while decreasing depressive symptoms. Rose oil is also one of the most expensive essential oils—it takes 60 roses to make just one drop of rose oil! As a result, there a lot of synthetic or low quality rose oils available. Fortunately, you can trust Young Living’s rose oil and through their wholesale program, you can purchase it at one of the best prices available.

Snoring Relief

5 drops peppermint oil

5 drops eucalyptus oil

5 drops vetiver oil

Mix these three oils with a carrier oil and rub it across your chest before bed. The peppermint and eucalyptus oil will work to clear congestion and open your nasal passages and blockages in your chest—both of which cause snoring. Vetiver oil, when applied directly the skin, has a calming effect that will release tension in your chest that can also contribute to snoring. Use this on yourself or on a partner whose snoring keeps you up at night.
