Less stress, more rest with a natural, stress-relieving sleep blend with essential oils
We've all heard it so often. . .
Stress is not good for our health. It seems like there is new research every week showing us the negative effects of stress on our bodies.
One approach to reducing stress would be to stop any activity that causes stress in the first place. You can just stay in your bed with organic food delivered and a warm bath. . .
Ok i don't think so! We need something more practical. Something that supports us naturally, helps us stay balanced, and helps us get a deep, quality, restful sleep at night.
This is a blend of essential oils "base notes" in a stress relieving sleep blend. Base notes are great for falling asleep and falling asleep. They are warm, woody, earthy and have a calming effect on the nervous system and calm an overactive mind.
I suggest using this as a body oil before bed, but you can also use it during the day to help you stay calm and centered.
Stress-relieving sleep mix: less stress, more rest!
- 30 ml jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
- 8 drops of lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
- 5 drops of cedarwood essential oil (Juniperus virginiana)
- 3 drops of vetiver essential oil (Vetiveria zizanoides)
- 2 drops of patchouli essential oil (Pogostemon Cablin)
Make this mixture in a 30 ml glass bottle.
Combine the jojoba and the essential oils and gently shake them. Use this stress relieving sleep mix like a regular body oil moisturizer whenever you want to relax or go to bed.
Each of the three base note essential oils are wonderful choices for calming the nervous system.
Lavender is a "heart note" with a lighter floral aroma. It helps to soften and round off the overall fragrance of the mixture.
Since their chemistries are all different from each other, when we combine them this way, we get a rich, nuanced mix that helps us sleep from different angles.
OPTIONAL: If you want, you can replace the lavender with a single drop of jasmine absolute (Jasminum grandiflorum).
Yes – just one drop is enough! Jasmine has been nicknamed "Queen of the Night" because its beautiful delicate flowers develop their strongest aroma at night, even if they have to be harvested by hand. And his nickname also reminds me of how deeply Jasmine can help us relax. But it has a very rich, intoxicating aroma, so one drop is all you need.
As mentioned earlier, you can use this stress reliever blend anytime to help you stay calm.
Remember, it's supposed to help you get a good night's sleep. So if you feel tired and low on energy during the day, then this is the place to try this mixture instead.
Enjoy your new stress relieving sleep mix!
