Sleep is critical to good health. We need the rest but can be our own worst enemies when it comes to bedtime. As the stress of the day still flows through our bodies or vivid imagery haunts our minds, however, it often seems that sleep is the last thing we will get to experience.  Perhaps it is time for a little holistic help with a remedy from a few generations ago… or maybe even developed over millennia.

This article highlights benefits of seven essential oils:

  • Chamomile oil
  • Rose oil
  • Frankincense
  • Lavender oil
  • Catnip oil
  • Kava Kava root
  • Cedarwood

Benefits range from reducing anxiety to pain relief to even a mild depressant (a bit like alcohol, with no hangover).  The article also points out different ways to use these essential oils, whether applying to body parts (like using frankincense on the bottoms of your feet) or spraying and even a few tips on mixing.

Like many holistic therapeutic agents, there are many ways to enjoy the benefits offered by essential oils.  Whether a cup of chamomile tea or as part of introducing a new behavior (more senses to help the mind embrace the change), or just sprayed, diffused, mixed, or whatever your preference the therapy should fit your needs and environment.

It is important to remember that essential oils, like other therapies, will have an impact and if you are under any medical care please include you healthcare provider(s) in any decision before incorporating a new therapy into your care plan.
