Essential Oils to Combat Sleep Disturbance
Do you or family struggle with sleeping well? I had not slept through the night for 20+ years when I was introduced to Serenity. My life was changed overnight, literally. I did not realize how sleep deprived I was until I started getting sleep and realized how much better I felt. My mood was a huge shift. And then my energy levels increased. I no longer needed a daily nap.
I have been using the Serenity oil blend for 4+ years to help me get a good’s night sleep. I can tell a big difference when I don’t use it how I feel the next day. I am more tired, less motivated, and cannot think as clearly. I like to apply 1 drop of Serenity on my chest, rub it in, and then take 5 big deep breaths while cupping my hands over my mouth and nose. Sometimes if I am really revived up from my day, I will apply the oil blend also to my pillow to act as a diffuser. You can also apply it to your feet or use a diffuser with water as other options for sleep.
Another tip is to diffuse Serenity for your family in the evening to help everyone wind down. Say about 30 min before bedtime, start up your diffuser and take notice how your family reacts to the oils. Do you notice a more calm environment? Is it easier to get your kiddos to go to sleep? How are people feeling the next day? Do they appear more rested, happier, and productive?
How is your digestive system? Not sleeping and digestive health are very connected together. Please consider essential oils for digestive health as well when looking for a better night’s rest. Check out my page on cellular cleansing and digestive health to restore your gut back to health!
