5 Best Essential Oils To Help You Sleep Better
For this reason, we will give you the best essential oils for healthy and comfortable sleep.
First, you need to know that oils don’t only help when they are applied to the skin. Even their perfume has a direct impact on our body, influencing the parasympathetic nervous system. This part of the nervous system controls our involuntary acts like breathing.
The use of oils and flavourings as a DIY remedy for better sleep is called aromatherapy.
So what are the best essential oils for the bedroom?
Thanks to studies conducted by M. Lis-Balchin and S. Hart (“Studies on the mode of action of the essential oil of Lavender Lavandula angustifolia P. Miller “), we can confirm that lavender oil and any other scents derived from this pretty little plant has a spasmolytic and relaxing effect.
This oil reduces the chances of muscle convulsions and spasms considerably.
It is especially recommended for people who suffer from hypersensitivity and hypertension. Usually, it is also used with children who are simply struggling to fall asleep.
Simply pour 15-20 drops into a diffuser with sticks, placing it on the bedside table. You will feel more relaxed after just a few minutes.
How do you use essential oils?
The Emma team advises you to use them at night before going to sleep, applying it on the soles of the feet, behind the knees and on the back of the neck.
For cedar and marjoram oils, we recommend using them on furniture or inside room diffusers. In this way you will create a magical and relaxing atmosphere.
Try these relaxing essential oils for yourself, and have a more restful sleep every day!
