Essential Oils for Sleep

There are a lot of essential oils that help the mind and body relax. Here’s a list of some of the most widely recommended:

  • Bergamot: floral citrus aroma is an adaptogen, meaning that it can be both uplifting and calming, depending on what your body needs at the time. Helps calm and reduce anxious feelings.
  • Cedarwood: warm, woody scent that is both grounding and calming, promoting a great night’s sleep
  • Roman Chamomile: sweet floral aroma is calming and soothing to the mind and body, making it one of the most often used essential oils for sleep
  • Frankincense: warm, spicy aroma promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, and satisfaction. A great oil to use to help balance your mood. When combined with other oils, Frankincense often enhances the properties of the other essential oils.
  • Lavender: widely used for its calming properties. It eases tension and induces relaxation.
  • Marjoram: has a slightly spicy, warm aroma that calms and helps you release emotional stress and trauma
  • Wild (Sweet) Orange: sweet citrus scent and, like Bergamot, wild/sweet Orange is also an adaptogen that can be either energizing or calming, depending on what your body needs
  • Patchouli: musky scent is grounding and balancing for emotions
  • Hawaiian Sandalwood: rich, sweet and woody aroma instills calm and relaxation. It’s soothing scent lessens tension, promotes emotional well-being, and has a meditative-like effect.
  • Vetiver: This grass has a rich, exotic aroma that is extremely grounding for emotions.
  • Ylang Ylang: a wonderful choice if you are looking to improve the quality of your sleep. It’s very floral and smells a bit fruity.

Almost Eternal Sleep Blend

This recipe is for a 4 oz. spray bottle, but of course it can be doubled or halved as needed. It’s really simple to make, here is what you will need:

  • A 4 oz Spray Bottle.
  • 1 tablespoon of vodka or rubbing alcohol
  • 10 drops of Lavender essential oil
  • 12 drops of Vanilla essential oil
  • 7 drops of Chamomile essential oil
  • 6 tablespoons of water

Optional: A  sprig of Lavender, or a piece of Vanilla bean- small enough to fit into the bottle. This is mainly decorative, and does boost the scent a bit.

Pour the alcohol into the spray bottle and then add the essential oils. Shake well to blend. Add the optional ingredient, and the water. Shake well before using.

Important Notice

Almost anyone can enjoy the benefits of an aromatherapy oil, but certain individuals, such as pregnant women, persons with allergies, and those with respiratory conditions such as asthma should only use essential oils for aromatherapy under the guidance of a trained professional.

Keep in mind that essential oils are highly concentrated botanical extracts and should never be ingested or applied to skin at full strength. Consult a professional aromatherapist or an accredited reference on aromatherapy for advice on these uses.
