Sleep, something we all need, and it's amazing what we can do when get are getting a restful sleep each night.
Our new go-to for night time diffusing is 3 drops each of Lemon, Lavender, and Frankincense Young Living Essential Oils. Other than the lavender, the combination surprised me as something that would help us sleep. But after doing a little research it makes sense.
Lemon improves relaxation and is good for nervousness, agitation, and similar.
Frankincense also helps with relaxing, promotes mediation, improves attitude, and uplifts spirits. Sounds like a little bit of a chill-out oil, which is good before bedtime. :-)
Lavender is well known for providing a calming, and relaxing scent.
Knowing all of that, it explains why it's so helpful at bedtime. We've discovered that oils work differently on each of us. I have another combination that does well for me, but not as much for Kevin. When a friend passed on this combination it was great to learn we both loved it!
It's always good to have a variety of oil combinations you like for sleep. Don't stick with the same one night after night as your body will adjust to it. Switch it up, over time you'll have plenty to choose from!
These work great for the kids too, just start out with fewer drops. This would also work great in a roller bottle, diluted appropriately, to put on the bottom of their feet at bedtime.
So love my oils!! The hardest thing now is to figure out what oils to take with me when I travel. Between the NingXia Red and Protein Complete for 2 of us for a week, also need my diffuser and oils.
Soooo glad I brought my Lime Vitality. It is great on my tacos, and Kevin loved it in his Corona. Way better than fresh lime.
Having fun with friends in Cabo this week and learned something new about Copaiba. I was always told that it was a good for amplifying/enhancing other oils. Other than that, didn't think too much about it. I learned today it's good for those times you are feeling worried, nervous, or just uneasy. I decided to check it out in my oil guide, and sure enough, that's what it said. She was waking up in the middle of the night feeling agitation and nervousness. The next night she put Copaiba behind her ears, she slept great!!!
I don't struggle with that, but I found a combination of Lavender, Stress Away and Copaiba is great for getting a good nights sleep. I thought the Copaiba was just enhancing the other two oils, but now I think it's more than that. I'm thinking of making up a roller ball of Stress Away and Copaiba... just might be what I need to stop me stressing about my to-do lists!
