It has long been known, both scientifically and otherwise, that essential oils carry great potency when helping people to relax their mind and body in preparation for a restful night’s sleep. Perhaps the most well-known essential oil is Lavender, with many a novice turning to this powerful essential oil for self-medication. Aromatherapists themselves have always recognised Lavender as being one of the best relaxants available, however, it’s important to make sure you choose the soothing Lavendula angustifolia, such as contained in our Lavender Oil or Sleep Blend.

As well as our Pure Essential Lavender, we also offer a range of expertly blended essential oils to calm and relax the mind and body. Try these three beautifully simple steps at home yourself to help you unwind for bedtime:

1. Take a warm bath or shower 1-2 hours before bed. The raising and lowering of your body temperature before sleeping is the perfect recipe for a good night’s sleep! Helping with insomnia and deep relaxation to assure you get a good nights sleep.

2. Create an ambient sanctuary for Sleep by infusing your bedroom with the aroma of our essential oil. Add 2-3 drops of Lavender Oil or our Sleep Blend to our Aroma Mood Diffuser 30 minutes before bed. This will help ease your mind and settle your emotions, preparing you for a peaceful night’s sleep.

Whether you choose pure Lavender or our blend, through a link between your sense of smell and your memory, you will begin to associate the aroma of the oil with relaxation and sleep and so its effects can become even more potent if used regularly to sleep well.
