I have so struggled with not sleeping well through the years. I added up the years I didn’t sleep through the night when my 4 kids were little. It was like 10 years of my time! Crapola! Those were the days when I fell asleep quick and took naps when they napped or had quiet time.
Recently I learned that 80% of what we do on a daily basis dictates the life that we live later. We sure realize this as we get older, don’t we? I also learned that sleep is what heals us. Seriously! Our body will not heal until it sleeps!
This is fascinating to me. We are always told that we need to consistently get 7-9 hours sleep a night. And more if sick!
I also learned that sleep is the healer and I added in Essential Oils are the helpers of that sleep.
I am a firm believer in Essential Oils.
My favorite brand is Doterra and they have an awesome blend called Serenity. With Lavender, Sweet Marjoram, Roman Chamomile Flower, Ylang Ylang, Hawaiian Sandalwood, all wrapped up Absolute Vanilla Bean Extract….You will be relaxed and down for a deep sleep in a wink of an eye.. 🙂 You will want to apply the oil to the bottoms of your feet, on your pulse points, and on your pillows & blankets.
Another one of the easiest rituals that I do each night is adding relaxing essential oils to my bedroom diffuser! My favorite combo is 2 drops each of Balance blend, Vetiver, and Lavender.
Try it tonight…..you will thank me in the morning 🙂
Or this one…Well..you get the point. The combos are endless! Check out other ideas here...It’s All About the Oils.
Night rituals are great for relaxing and setting the tone for a much needed restful night’s sleep. Recently I found these wireless sleep phones that have been awesome to listen to my meditation’s on. Or an audiobook as I drift off to sleep. I enjoy them.
What works for you in helping you get to sleep?
