Aromatic Advice To Tackle Insomnia

Aromatic Advice To Tackle Insomnia

 

 

What Is Insomnia?

Insomnia is difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep and people with insomnia tend to feel dissatisfied with their sleeping pattern. Insomnia is a common sleep problem for adults. The National Institutes of Health estimates that roughly 30 percent of the general population complains of sleep disruption, and approximately 10 percent have associated symptoms of daytime functional problems due to a lack of sleep.

How Can Aromatherapy Help?

Aromatherapy can help with sleep in several ways, as the use of essential oils can relax the body, calm the mind and promote a good night’s sleep. We have put together some useful tips to help you sleep easy and improve your sleeping pattern.

Tips:

 

  • Another way to calm your mind before sleep is to vaporise essential oils in your bedroom about an hour before bed time. Add 4 drops of Lavender French, 4 drops of Bergamot and 2 drops of Neroli to your vaporiser and by the time you go to bed, your bedroom will be a comforting escape into the world of sleep.

 

  • If you don’t want to buy individual oils we highly recommend our ready to use ‘Dream’ Aromatherapy Roller Ball. With a blend of natural, pure essential oils in a handy roller ball applicator, just apply to wrists, collar bone and temples, to promote deep, refreshing sleep.

 

  • Be sure to have a wind down period every evening before bed, to allow your brain to ‘switch off’.

 

  • Drink plenty of water! This help to reduce a build-up of toxins in your blood stream and helps to release stress hormones as quickly as possible, making you feel more relaxed and stress free.

Try the above tips and your sleeping pattern should improve over time, giving you refreshing and undisturbed sleep.

Say Goodbye To Winter Germs With Anti-Viral Essential Oils

Fight Off Germs With Essential Oils

When the winter weather arrives, it’s well known that we all seem to catch a cold. This is because the cold weather is particularly dry, so we all huddle up inside to avoid the dropping temperatures. This cold air tends to dry out the mucus lining in our nasal passages so that our protective barrier no longer traps the microbes before they enter the body – meaning we are less likely to fight the infection.

There are several powerful essential oils that are anti-bacterial and anti-viral, that can help to protect yourself and family from the winter infections and boost immune response. These include; Lemon, Bergamot, Peppermint and Tea Tree.

So, instead of buying products filled with un-natural chemicals, why not try creating your own completely natural, germ fighting and health-enhancing blends!

Here are some fantastic DIY recipes for you to try at home!

Goodbye Germs surface spray

You will need:

100ml cooled boiled water

10 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil

5 drops of Lemon Essential Oil

7 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Add to a spray bottle and shake well before use.

Anti-viral Hand wash

You will need:

50ml of hand and body soap

2 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil

3 drops of Lemon Essential Oil

2 drops of Bergamot Essential Oil

Add to a bottle and wash away the germs!

Breathe Easy Diffuser blend

You will need:
