Is Sleep driving your day?
Sleep is something that comes naturally, right? Not always.
Sometimes a good night’s sleep doesn’t come so easily. Improving sleep means taking charge of your nights and making sleep a priority. You may not be conscious of it, but sleep is one of the most important ways you spend your time. Without enough quality sleep, your brain and body don’t get the time they need to rest, recover, and prepare for the day to come. If you experience insomnia or find yourself regularly lying awake for other reasons, you’ll eventually start to notice some effects of sleep deprivation. Over time, sleep loss can have a serious impact on your health. Stress and anxiousness are frequent obstacles to sound, restful sleep. People who experience stress and anxiety symptoms often have trouble falling asleep and sleep restlessly throughout the night, leaving them tired and fatigued the next day.
Do you know that Essential Oils have been known better than off-the-counter medicines?
Because Essential Oils are quickly absorbed by the skin, they are ideal for use topically. They can then easily penetrate through the cell wall due to their tiny molecules. This means that the potential healing effects of the oils that promote sleep reach your body not only through the brain, but also through your bloodstream.
Not everyone finds essential oils helpful. Still, people who prefer to avoid over-the-counter sleep aids often find that aromatherapy, or the therapeutic use of essential oils, offers a natural way to improve sleep.
Here are some of the essential oils that are recommended best for sound sleep:
Lavender Essential Oil
Before going to bed, lavender essential oil can assist to relieve anxiety, promote relaxation, and soothe the mind. The use of linalool, the major component in lavender is considered as best for anxiety alleviation which results in sound sleep.
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
This essential oil has a rich, sweet flowery scent that some people compare to fruitiness. It has numerous other benefits outside insomnia alleviation, including as anxiety and stress relief.
Cypress Essential Oil

This can be particularly helpful for people who are undergoing emotional stress, having trouble sleeping, or have experienced recent trauma or shock.
Clary Sage Essential Oil
Clary Sage is an oil used in aromatherapy for sleep specially made for relaxation. For depression-sufferers, clary sage oil is a must. Unlike regular sage, clary sage oil excels at combating the sort of dark thoughts that regularly besiege folks as day gives way to night, and will soothe your troubled mind enough to nudge you over those obstacles into a deep, restful slumber.
